Usage of Core and Dual-Core Yarns Containing Tungsten for Electromagnetic Shielding

Textile materials having electrically conductive features come to the forefront in the development of electromagnetic shielding products in the literature.

Yarns and fabrics containing high-conductivity and low surface/volume resistivity metal wires among these textile materials became important.

However, no research has been found about yarns containing tungsten wires and fabric structures composed of these yarns.

Point of origin of this study consisted of tungsten having similar electrical resistivity and electrically conductive properties with metals used for electromagnetic shielding such as silver, nickel and copper.

The aim of this paper was to evaluate and validate fabrics composed of tungsten with conductivity properties as an alternative electromagnetic shielding product.

From this point of view, three different core yarns were produced using Inox, Copper and Tungsten wires.

In addition to these core yarns, three different dualcore yarns were also produced with elastane and metal wires.

Furthermore, 100% CO (Cotton) yarn and core yarn containing elastane were selected as the control group.

Thus, obtained yarn set was used as weft material for the fabric production.

The properties of produced yarns and fabrics were determined and EMSE performances were examined comparatively.

The findings from this study indicate that the use of tungsten core yarn in the fabric structure can be an alternative to existing products for electromagnetic shielding.

This research will serve about products containing tungsten for electromagnetic shielding as a base for future works.
