e-NanoPrint aims to develop and produce a novel, highly conductive in the z-axis carbon fiber (CF) textile material through the introduction of printed electrically conductive polymer droplet patterns on the two CF textile surfaces. The electrically conductive polymer droplet patterns excessively enhance textile and eventually CF composite through thickness electrical conductivity. e-NanoPrint presents the industrial development of an innovative textile-material, with revolutionary through thickness electrical conductivity, in levels similar to in-plane carbon fabric electrical conductivity.
