【Details of Display】
Silver-Metalized Fiber AGposs®, AGfit™

AGfit™ is a stretchable conductive fiber featuring a double elongation, covered by AGposs® in spirals on polyurethane elastic fibers as a base.

AGposs® is a silver-metalized fiber on the surface of nylon. AGposs® is entirely covered with “silver” on its surface. It is like threads and not like threads, like metal and not like metal. It is, so to speak, “metal that has a face of yarns”. Unlike conventional silver-conjugated fiber and Slitted film-like silver yarn, its conductivity is superior due to the large amount of silver. Therefore, it is excellent for Electromagnetic Interference, Antibacterial Effect, Anti-odor, Thermal Effect, Insulation and Electrostatic Discharge.
