The durable conductive fiber was developed by the concepts of new nano composite technique. The fiber is composed of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and sulfide cupper (Cu<inf>x</inf>S) nano particles, and shows good internal-electro conductivity. This leads to the unique fabrics with the durability against the bending, friction and washing. In addition, electro conductivity of this is controllable from le-1 to le+8 ohm cm for various purposes. As results, it has possibility as high conductive and durability fiber against conventional carbon contained fiber or surface metalized fiber.
