Abstract

During research, insulation of textile circuits was investigated using three different silicon materials and one polyurethane film. For the test samples textile circuits with sewn/woven conductive yarns and attached light emitting diodes (LEDs) were used. Electrical properties were evaluated by measuring the emitted light intensity and electrical resistance before and after insulation and after washing. The given methods can further be used for insulation of other electronic components or circuits on textile, which can contribute to the development and improvement of smart textile/clothing technology. Keywords: illuminated textile, smart textile, flexible LED display, insulation.
