Stainless steel fibers for heatable textiles

yarns for car seat heating

Bekinox® continuous stainless steel yarns can be used for a wide range of heatable textiles, including garments, gloves, sleeping bags, car seats and SCR heating.

The flexible solution

Bekinox® yarns are extremely flexible and supple. They are easy to integrate into any type of textile and ensure a high level of comfort to the wearer or user. Bekaert offers different material combinations and coating solutions depending on the required electrical or corrosion resistance. Our cables can be integrated in small circuits to enhance the warmth proximity with a freedom of design. The high quality of the yarns assures a reliable and safe performance over the entire life-time of your fabric.

Extend the flex-life of your textiles

The yarns can be insulated individually or together. This increases the corrosion, mechanical resistance and overall flex-life of your heating wire. It also enables consistent distribution of heat through the textile material, effectively preventing hotspots.
