Conductive Fabric for Shielding

Conductive Shielding Solutions for a Low Observable Strategic Advantage

Noble Biomaterials provides superior conductive fabric solutions for warfighter uniforms, equipment, aircraft, ships, submarines, vehicles, missiles, and satellites that need to be less visible to radar, infrared, sonar and other detection methods. Low observable technology materials made by Noble Biomaterials are used by leaders in military and aerospace, including US and Allied Special Forces, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, Boeing, and NASA.

Overview of Conductive Textile Solutions

EMI, RFI, and IR spectrum concealment fabrics and soft surface materials from Noble Biomaterials are effective solutions for lightweight, flexible, and portable multi-spectral shielding applications where failure is not an option. These fabrics and materials are effective in the visible light, infrared, and radar portions of the EM spectrum.

Uses include:

Customization Options Are Virtually Unlimited

Noble acts as an end-to-end partner by integrating its technology materials and providing development consulting, ideation, quality assurance, and regulatory compliance tailored to your application. Noble customizes specifications to deliver pliability, tenacity, elongation, and strength per the customer.

Fabric Metallization Technology

Noble Biomaterials uses proprietary technology to permanently bond pure silver to the surface of a polymer substrate, including yarn, fiber, fabric, tape, and foam. These materials can be blended with natural or man-made fibers for superior design flexibility. Special formulations can protect against galvanic reactions and oxidization. The result is a highly conductive, durable, lightweight, flexible, washable material with 360-degree permanent encapsulation coating. Noble Biomaterials provides industry-leading performance, quality control, and durability.

EMI and RFI Signal Blocking Technology

Noble Biomaterials offers fabric, filament, and fiber solutions for lightweight, flexible, and durable shielding to protect data transmission networks and electronics from electromagnetic and radio frequency interference or interception. It is effective in the visible light, infrared, and radar portions of the EM spectrum. Shielding performance can be customized to meet customer requirements by use of different fabric constructions and coatings.

Noble’s materials are easy to integrate, can be processed on standard textile manufacturing equipment, perform to exacting specifications, and can be utilized in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.
