ARACON conductive yarns or fibers are ideally suited for use in smart textiles that lead the future of communication.
shield the cables
without the weight
ARACON offers decreased weight up to 40% in the final shielded coaxial cable and up to 80% weight saving in braided EMI shielding.
This revolutionary product, available only from Micro-Coax, combines the conductivity of an outer metal coating with the strength, light weight and flexibility of aramid fibers.
Due to their textile like nature, ARACON fibers provide a very high surface-to-volume ratio. Together with the excellent coverage, the extra surface yields improved high Frequency EMI shielding performance
metal clad fibers
The high performance solution for lightweight braided EMI shielding and conductors.
The specific gravity of ARACON fibers ranges from 3-5g/cc. At the same time, the strength of the aramid core (350 Ksi) is from three to ten times higher than that of traditional or high-strength copper cores (35-95 Ksi).
