Abstract

Electrically conductive textiles have many potential applications, such as sensors, static charge dissipation, and electro-magnetic interference shields. In this study, two different types of core spun yarns were produced with silver-plated nylon filaments as the conductive material. The electrical characteristics of the core spun yarns and the fabric samples knitted with these yarns were investigated. It was clear that the surface resistance of each type of knitted fabric depends on the surface exposure of the conductive materials. However, both knit types exhibited reasonable features for application as a touching operator for capacitive touch screen panels.
