This is a very unique multi-metallized fabric. Of course you get good far field RF shielding: 65-80 dB tested over 30MHz to 1GHz.
But in addition, because of the Cobalt alloy top coating, this material offers remarkable radiofrequency magnetic shielding in difficult near field conditions.
Great for reducing interference between tightly placed components. Light weight (only 100 g/m²) and very flexible, tight taffeta weave. Resistivity less than 0.1 Ohm/sq.42 inch wide, silver colored.
Thickness: 0.08 mm
Width: 42 inch
Weight: 100 g/m²
Resistivity: < 0.1 Ohm/sq.
Conductor: Nickel/Copper/Cobalt plated

RIPSTOP SILVER FABRIC
High Quality Silver for Performance
Good microwave/radiowave shielding. First developed as an antibacterial fabric for general use (wound healing and odor control) so you know it has consistent high quality, Ripstop Silver Fabric is a very conductive, high shielding performance fabric. Pure Silver coated onto nylon RipStop for strength. Can be used for garment liners. Also great for static control. Comfortable and safe against the skin. Resistivity is less than 0.25 Ohm/sq. Light gray color. Light weight too: only 1.1 ounce per sq yard. -30°C to 90°C temperature range. 59 inch wide. Hand washable. Made in USA.

"With Hot Melt Adhesive"
High quality flame retardant fabric for radiofrequency and microwave shielding. Rugged rip-stop polyester substrate (for superior strength and handling), Nickel and Copper plated (for excellent shielding and low corrosion), then coated on one side with a non-conductive hot melt adhesive (activates at 130ºC = 266ºF) so you can iron it on to cotton, wood, glass or paper, or roll it into a tube and heat seal the seam! Maximum temperature is 200ºC (=392ºF). Can also be cut and sewn like ordinary fabric.
This fabric offers an amazing shielding performance: >60 dB from 10 MHz to 3+ GHz. Will also block virtually all ELF & VLF electric fields when grounded. Great for shielding extension cords and computer cables. Connect strips of it to make a sheet shield under your bed, or hang it on the wall. Makes a great liner for drapes too! Line a vest or a hat to protect your vital organs from radiowaves and electric fields. It doesn’t breathe well, and Nickel may cause skin irritation, so plan to line it with cotton if you will be using it against the skin. 230 g/m², 0.17 mm thick. UL 94V-0 level flame retardant. RoHS Compliant. Gray, 13 inch wide.
Thickness: 0.17 mm
Width: +/- 13 inch

Because we offer so many different fabrics, of different widths, the easiest way to order is by specifying how long the piece of fabric will be. We describe the length of the fabric purchased in linear feet. So, for example, if you order 22 linear feet of a material, you will get a piece that is 22 feet long x the width of the material. The width of each material is listed near the end of the product description.

Can't decide which fabric is right for your application? Want to see and feel the fabrics before you decide? In this booklet you get swatches of each fabric, along with specifications and application suggestions. Swatches are approximately 2 inches. Ni/Cu/Co tape, Threads, Hook & Loop, and Copper Wire Mesh not included in standard sampler, so if you need these, be sure to specify. If you need larger pieces for your testing, you can order as little as 1 linear foot of any material (see above).
