A comparative study of the implementation methods of heating elements used for the development of textile heaters

A comparative study of the implementation methods of heating elements used for the development of textile heaters

Samenvatting

The focus of this paper is to make a comparison between five different types of conductive, heatable samples. These samples have been produced according to the five most important implementation techniques developed so far, which are knitting, weaving, embroidery, printing and nonwoven padding  –and their purpose is to help decide which conductive option best accommodates a heating application. This study was divided into four major steps: choosing the adequate materials, swatch production, conductivity measurements and heating behaviour assessment. The first three methods use electro conductive wires as heating elements, the fourth uses conductive ink and the fifth uses carbon black coating. For all of them, resistance, current and heat distribution was measured. The results show that the best options for the development of a wearable textile heating system are the printed and the knitted techniques, as their mechanical strength and elasticity, is sufficiently high and the fabric/substrate structure allows the insertion/deposition of different types of heating elements.
