This fabric feels great against the skin, is hand washable, conductive, and offers exceptionally high RF shielding performance. It is perfect for making microwave shielding anti-radiation pajamas, shirts, hoods, curtains or sheets. Easy to make a ground connection because the surface has high conductivity (1 Ohm per sq). Made with a unique blend of natural materials: 70% bamboo fiber, 25.5% Nylon, and 4.5% Silver. Silver gives Soft&Safe anti-bacterial and anti-odor qualities. Greater than 50 dB attenuation too! Cuts and sews like ordinary cotton fabric. 135g/m². Pale rose color. 59 inch wide.
Thickness: 0.36 mm

Resistivity: <1 Ohm/sq
Base: Bamboo fiber
Conductor: pure Silver threads
Content: 70% Bamboo, 25.5% Nylon, 4.5% Silver
1) Softly wash by hand, with neutral detergent such as TexCare (Don’t use any strongly alkaline detergent such as washing powder).**
2) Water temperature below 40˚C.
3) No bleach, do not use detergent with bleach ingredients.
4) Hang dry. Do not wring, do not hang in blazing sun for a long time, and pick up promptly from the water to dry.
5) Do not dry clean.
** Poor water quality will damage Silver. In particular Sulphur, high Fluoride, and low
pH will react strongly with Silver and destroy conductivity and shielding performance.
Test your tap water on a small fabric swatch before washing your fabric or garment:
1- soak a small fabric swatch in tap water for 1 hour.
2- look for color change in the water or swatch, especially blackening.
3- air dry the swatch and check for conductivity (by touching an Ohm meter to 2 points
on the fabric)
If color change or loss of conductivity occurs, DO NOT use tap water to wash/rinse your
fabric, use distilled or deionized, reverse osmosis water. Washing will eventually degrade
Silver coating and shielding performance. Discoloration over time is normal.
The fabric is highly conductive. DO NOT allow the fabric to come in contact with
electric wires, outlets or switches. Cover nearby outlets with child safety caps. Does
not contain flame retardant, use caution around open flames and heat sources.
