Description: This a 10cm long strip of conductive hook & loop (Velcro). This conductive strip is perfect for e-textile projects where you need to make a complete circuit by simply forming a connection between the hook and loop pieces. You can use this strip to light LEDs, form a simple on/off switch, make a pair of “velcro” shoes even sweeter than they already are, or pretty much anything you can come up with! Use it the same way you would use conductive thread.

Each strip is silver-treated to make it fully conductive and is 2.5cm wide and 10cm long (1"W x 3"L). Additionally, the surface resistance for both the hook and the loop is 1Ω per centimeter.


  • Surface Resistance: 1Ω per cm
  • Silver-Treated
  • Cut to Different Lengths
  • Sewable

Customer Comments

  • Someone is going to ask this, so I guess it will be me…

    Surface resistance is stated at 1ohm per cm. Is that square cm, or is the 1ohm counting the width of the material by whatever length you have?

    and… where is my ohm button for the comments :D?

    • Since it comes in a fixed width, it is reasonable to assume that the resistance is based on linear measure rather than by cubic. That would mean that you would have 20Ω for this (measuring both parts). Frankly I don’t like assuming, it makes fools of folks.

      Hook and loop tape often gets mated less than perfectly (sometimes by design – have a look at the demo). It would be interesting to see what a multimeter would report on this stuff if the overlap sections are fully applied, 75%, 50%, and 25% supplied for starters.

      TL:DR, having a cubic for resistance would be nice.

    • ALT + 234 = Ω
