IPC’s D-70 E-Textiles Committee has announced the “IPC WP-024, IPC White Paper on Reliability and Washability of Smart Textile Structures – Readiness for the Market” report. The first in a series of white papers detailing the topic, IPC WP-024 offers insights from the initial results of tests on the washability parameters of e-textiles.
“Home laundering and commercial cleaning is an everyday reality for millions of textile wearable products. Explosive growth in e-textiles is just starting to break through performance market segments making standardization urgently necessary. This e-textile laundering research identifies with the procedure and requirements gap of these merging manufacturing technologies. The IPC E-Textiles Committee is corralling industry manufacturers to participate in the discussion of new e-textiles standards creation,” says IPC D-70 Committee Chair Stephanie Rodgers of Apex Mills in a release.
Reliability issues and difficulty of laundering are two barriers to e-textiles being adapted on a large scale; additional issues pertaining to integration, connector elements, and overall supply chain integration are also critical for widespread adaptation.
