Company Profile (Sensing Tex)

Sensing Tex logo
The patented technology from Sensing Tex is a unique combination of the most advanced materials available:
• Electronic inks and pastes which are flexible, elastic and can be printed on materials with special surface preparations are used to construct complex passive and active electronic systems. (Technologies are based on organic printed electronics)
• Both conventional and silicon based fibre optics woven into textile to create a light emmiting fabric. (Technology based on light guides)
The technology can be applied using completely standard weaving, printing, lamination and impregnation techniques which maintain the original properties of the material such as the flexibility, elasticity, comfort and the ability to wash etc.
