DuPont launches new stretchable electronic inks, films
Jul '17
DuPont Advanced Materials has announced availability of its newest generation of stretchable electronic inks and films for smart clothing. The materials are being unveiled concurrently with a new brand identity – DuPont Intexar smart clothing technology. Intexar offers better stretch and comfort and is easily integrated into garments to make smart clothing.

Intexar transforms ordinary fabrics into active, connected, intelligent garments that provide critical biometric data including heart rate, breathing rate, form awareness and muscle tension.

DuPont is highlighting its Intexar smart clothing technology at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market during July 26-29, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“Every athlete – from professional to everyday – can benefit from smart clothing to help boost their performance; but it has to look good and feel good,” said Michael Burrows, global business manager, DuPont Advanced Materials. “Intexar is a game-changing technology and will truly move the needle in making smart garments as comfortable as regular fitness clothing.”

Available as a suite of premium and high-performing stretchable electronic inks and flexible substrates, Intexar is seamlessly embedded directly onto fabric using standard apparel manufacturing processes to create thin, form-fitting circuits. Garments powered by Intexar can endure over 100 washes, and continue to perform through repeated stretching and demanding performance.

DuPont is featuring two smart clothing garments powered by Intexar technology at Outdoor Retailer.

Body Plus will display a smart fitness shirt commercially available in China that uses DuPont Intexar to enable real-time monitoring and data collection, e.g., heart rate, breathing and muscles movements. OMsignal will display two products: a high-end fitness sports bra and a comfortable, attractive lifestyle bra, both boasting advanced sensory technologies capturing real time ECG, respiration and physical activity.

"We’re using Intexar prints for our ECG sensors. Intexar technology is enabling multiple applications well beyond athletic apparel and is helping us to make smart clothing mainstream,” said Frederic Chanay, CEO and co-founder of OMsignal. (SV)
