Preventative Clothing and Textiles Designed To Inhibit Virus & Bacteria Reproduction and Cross Contamination Before it Starts
Copper ions penetrate bacterial cells and inhibit their respiration. The copper then attacks the DNA of the bacteria or virus cell and destroys it, making gene transfer no longer possible. The ions also stop the transfer of antibody resistance from one species to another.
Copper can be infused with everyday clothing as well as with PPE products such as respirator masks, hospital gowns and other safety equipment and clothing.
Copper is a mineral that has been demonstrated to kill SARS-COV-2. A minimum of 99.8% of the COVID-19 virus dies after coming into contact with copper & copper textiles over time.
COVID-19 can survive for up to 72 hours on surfaces such as plastics and for up to 48 hours on stainless steel. This increases the risk of cross-contamination when an individual touches these surfaces and then potentially transmits the virus to their clothes, increasing the risk of transmission to family, friends and co-workers.
While we have known that copper had antimicrobial properties for thousands of years, it has only recently been infused with clothing to help decrease the transmission of diseases. It is one reason why copper pipes in your home help to keep your drinking water safe.
Copper Textiles are an exciting and timely new product which utilizes our patented MFusion process. We apply this technology into everyday clothing for men, women and children.
Copper ions can be infused with multiple items used by children and infants beyond clothing. We have also applied it to bedding sets, comforters, pillow cases, and toys such as dolls and stuffed animals.
Most importantly, we also produce PPE products including reusable face masks, hospital gowns, and other safety equipment for both consumers and frontline workers.
Copper fabric has shown substantial potential against many pathogens including COVID-19.
By incorporating copper ions directly into the cotton fibers, latex and other polymeric materials, the copper acts as an anti-viral agent, as well as an algaecide, fungicide, nematocide, molluscicide and as an anti-bacterial agent.
The promise of copper’s ability to reduce viral numbers is extremely attractive, given that seven million people will acquire a health-care-acquired infection every year.
