Equipments such as mobile phones, radars, TV and radio channels and some others radiate electromagnetic waves which may be harmful for both human health and sensitive electronic devices. Due to the increasing electromagnetic pollution caused by such factors, studies about protection from electromagnetic waves have gained considerable importance. Electromagnetic shielding and maintaining electromagnetic compatibility is an increasing challange for today's electronic and electrical product designers. To control electromagnetic interference, shielding products plays a more significant role than ever. However, electromagnetic compatibility has not always been achieved. This problem is recognised as electromagnetic interference (EMI). Electromagnetic interference is known to effect human health besides sensitive electronic devices in a negative way. In our study, the use of woven fabrics produced with conductive silver core yarns in electromagnetic interference shielding applications for the protection of human beings or sensitive electronic devices from the hazardous effects of electromagnetic waves in 200 MHz-3GHz frequency range was investigated. Electromagnetic shielding textiles can be used in various application areas such as automotive industry, home textiles, comfort and wellbeing, military applications and others.
