Bekinox® stainless steel fibers and yarns are an ideal component for EMI shielding textiles. With a shielding protection up to 60 dB in a frequency range of 300 to 10 GHz, Bekinox® nearly matches highly efficient alternatives like silver and copper. While these metals lose almost all protective value after only a few washes, Bekinox® is perfectly machine-washable. In addition, Bekinox® can be combined with ﬂame-retardant fibers to protect the wearer from heat. Diameters as thin as 6.5 µm result in superior conductivity and shielding properties.
