The creation of textile products with heating properties entails the manufacturing of a system based
on a set of elements that must ensure the desired functionality of a particular fabric. Even if there are
several types of textile heating elements, the study focuses on functional products whose structures
incorporate various electroconductive yarns specially designed for this particular purpose. Currently,
such yarns acquired characteristics which are similar to those of conventional textile yarns (fineness,
flexibility, the ability to be processed on machines that are specific to the textile industry), due to their
progressive evolution. As a consequence, the electroconductive yarns can be easily and effectively
integrated into textile structures, thus allowing the use of a wide range of implementation and
processing techniques that are specific to this field of activity.
