Abstract

This paper describes the influence of the laminating technique, typically used to produce printed textile antennas, on the return loss parameter (S11) of the produced antennas. The sheet resistance (Rs) of the conductive fabrics stand-alone was measured considering the use of steam, applying different adhesive sheets and taking into account the surface roughness of the substrate materials. The influence of this technique in the behaviour of a printed textile antenna is also analysed. The results have shown that the presence of the adhesive sheet may increase the Rs of the conductive materials. Despite that, in a general way, the results of S11 of the textile antenna produced by lamination show the antennas have a good performance.

Keywords: textile antennas, conductive fabrics, sheet resistance, manufacturing process, laminating technique
