This material looks and feels like ordinary Lycra but is highly conductive. It can be cut into narrow strips to form conducting ‘wires’ or can be used as a soft compliant substitute for metal and foil in switches and sensors. Amazingly, its conductivity depends how tightly it is stretched so if you pull it, the resistance increases (and drops again when stretched very tightly). In a thin strip, the material also warms up when current is passed thus provides the basis of a heated garment or product such as a hat or gloves.
Includes: 100 x 1450mm strip.
BEK and leads not included.
