This material is a high-strength rip-stop and conductive nylon textile. Its properties are the highest strength as well as the highest conductivity for any of the woven materials by the producer, Mindset.
The copper coating of its constituent micro-fibres gives it an overall copper appearance but this can tarnish quickly if exposed to some fluids or if it is handled frequently. It has an exceptionally high electrical conductivity of 0 Ω per 100mm measured on a 25mm wide strip. The material comes in 100mm x 1450mm strips, standard, in a shiny copper look. It is partly translucent, due to being a woven fabric.
