    • Abstract

       

      The usage of electrical and electronic equipments has been increasing in daily life, which has a potential hazardous impact on humans and other living organisms. In this paper, multi-axial fabrics containing steel yarns and carbon filaments, and their polyester (PES) resin-reinforced composites have been prepared for electromagnetic shielding applications. The electromagnetic shielding effectiveness (EMSE) of these structures was determined by using coaxial transmission line measurement technique. There were eight different multi-axial fabrics constructed. It was observed that the amount and the orientation of carbon and stainless steel yarns influenced the EMSE performances of multi-axial fabrics and their reinforced PES composites. The structures containing both carbon filaments and stainless steel yarns exhibited better EMSE than the ones including only one type of conductive yarns or filaments. Also, the EMSE performance of multi-axial fabrics was found better than their reinforced composites. The best EMSE results were obtained for the fabric, including two layers of yarns (steel and carbon) on top of each otherin the centre with the angle of 45 and $−$45$^{\circ}$.
