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/RFI PSA Shielding

Whether you’re shielding a room for secrecy, testing equipment, or segregating data, EMI/RFI self-stick shielding technology from Noble Biomaterials offer simple, fast, and flexible solutions when reliable conductive materials are required. Designed for implementation in environments where time and manpower are at a minimum, but security and reliability are paramount.

Benefits of Noble Biomaterials EMI/RFI Self-Stick Wallpaper Shielding

  • Can be used in any space that needs to be secured, from an airplane hangar to a closet or a transportation case.
  • More effective than films and foils, with significantly reduced installation time and lower cost.
  • Very little to no down time needed in the space for installation.
  • Simple installation with no soldering or other complicated seaming; one to two people can complete a room.
  • Products are textile based for weight saving, flexibility, and durability.
  • Can be assembled to meet your specific program requirements.
  • Available in several configurations for various performance specifications
  • Made in the USA.

Environment and Applications

Noble Biomaterials’ self-stick products are designed to secure an existing room, building, or portable enclosure efficiently and not significantly disrupt operations during installation. Materials are easy to use and manageable, allowing reduced downtime and manpower, while providing reliable performance. In typical shielding installations, the installers have difficult materials to work with and the process requires a great deal of time, rendering the space useless while it’s being worked in. With Noble self-stick shielding products, an installer can literally apply the shielding while the space is in use.

The system is designed to be applied to a wide variety of surfaces including unfinished dry wall, cinder block, concrete, plastic, painted or finished walls, painted and unpainted metal, and even low energy composite structures and cases. The system can also be encapsulated between layers of dry wall, plywood, or other construction material to avoid potential damage, provide additional protection from the elements, or to make it undetectable from parties that may enter the secured area. Because the adhesive can also be conductive, sending metal screws through the material will not create leaks. The adhesives have been tested for their ability to adhere to virtually any surface found in temporary or permanent structures.

Noble Biomaterials EMI/RFI self-stick shielding products can also be used to improve the performance of storage containers and other deployable assets. Because the materials are fabric-based, they have a natural ability to move with the structure and will not crack, split, or suffer from many of the same problems that more traditional architectural shielding products face when used in portable or deployable structures.
