Liquid Wire’s stretchable circuitry for apparel

Oregon based functional textile company Liquid Wire declares that its stretchable circuitry has passed a stringent wash test regimen required by performance apparel makers.

Founded in 2016, Liquid Wire manufactures advanced fluid circuits on both plastic and textile substrates by a metal gel based on a patented non-toxic gallium alloy modified with exclusive additives.

The circuit is made of fluid interconnects captured in soft elastic materials, replicating the mechanical behavior of a moving body. This lets sophisticated sensing and data processing functions to be directly integrated into comfortable form fitting garments.

Liquid Wire’s is manufacturing electronics that flex and stretch naturally while embedded invisibly in functional materials also enables medical wearables, safety wear and non-wearable industrial applications in robotics, structural monitoring, automotive and aerospace.

To address this market, garments enhanced with Liquid Wire circuitry must endure the rigours of washing and drying. Repeated agitation, heat, and water immersion are challenging that few electronics can withstand.

“Through a third-party validated wash test program with the textile experts at Hohenstein, we are pleased to have delivered on this promise of making our invisibly integrated electronics something that customers can count on in their next-generation garments,” says Jorge Carbo, Innovation Director of Liquid Wire.
