Infi-tex are a smart sensor company, with a new class of patented smart pressure sensitive materials which will enable new switches and sensors to be printed onto textiles.
Our sensors are ideally suited for use in the rapidly growing field of connected textiles. They are touch sensitive, displaying a proportional Ohmic resistance response when force is applied, whilst retaining the benefits of traditional textiles, such as washability, durability, and adaptability to fashion or usage demands.
As of September 2018, our pressure sensitive material is part of the Material ConneXion library in New York City.
With 25 libraries around the world, Material ConneXion is the leading materials-driven design resource that revolutionises the way designers interact with materials.
