Some metal-based fibers should be used in order to provide the technical textiles with desired properties. Therefore, the use of such materials in textile products have been increased with the developing technology. Silver and copper are among the most preferred materials especially in areas such as smart textiles, medical textiles and protective textiles. The advantages of these materials such as conductivity for smart textiles and antibacterial effect for medical textiles are crucial for these types of textiles. In this study, classification of metal and metal-based textile raw materials used in textile products according to their usage areas and a general evaluation of the studies about these areas will be done.
