IPC White Paper on Reliability and Washability of Smart Textile Structures – Readiness for the Market

IPC-WP-024 is a white paper which discusses the issues associated with reliability of smart textiles (e-textiles structures) following multiple washing cycles and emphasizes efforts that industry and research laboratories must undertake to make e-textile structures more robust and able to be washed similarly to everyday textile products (e.g., underwear, clothing, home textiles and technical textiles).

The researchers provide initial reliability results of laboratory testing for e-textiles after multiple washing cycles in a commercially available washing machine and using common laundry detergents.
