Smart Fabric

ARACON conductive yarns or fibers are ideally suited for use in textiles. Unique among conductive yarns, ARACON combines a DC resistance of less than 1 ohm per foot in a diameter of 0.014 inches and the strength of KEVLAR. ARACON can also be made virtually undetectable when woven into a fabric.

Originally designed for space applications, ARACON is increasingly being utilized in more earthly applications such as smart fabrics. With a nearly infinite flex life compared to traditional metal conductors, ARACON is an enabling technology for the fast growing wearable marketplace.

ARACON is available in a variety of sizes and conductivity. ARACON can also be custom tailored to perfectly fit your application’s requirements where the conductivity, size, plating finish and weight benefits can be fully leveraged.
