The following standards are used by The eTextile Lounge for testing conductive thread samples:
THREE RESISTANCE TESTS
- hand sewn 8” trace
- machine sewn top thread 8” trace
- machine sewn bottom thread 8” trace
- fray and whisker
- ease of threading needle
- ease of sewing
Listed according to conductivity, resistance, and quality.
MANUFACTURER or RETAIL LISTING
