Ag Nanoparticle /Nanopowder CAS Number : 7440-22-4
Diameter : 2 nm


This product is polyamide woven towel containing silver nanoparticles. It has been woven using almost 25-35 % of antibacterial thread. It can somewhat prevent the growth of bacteria. In nano-dimension, antibacterial effect of silver increases significantly, so that they are able to destroy over 650 bacterial species. It is reported that these nanoparticles have significant antifungal activities against some ringworms. Ag nanoparticles interact with sulfur and phosphorus compounds of membrane proteins affecting cell morphology and structure, causing its death. With decreasing particle size, the release of silver ions increases, leading to increasing their antibacterial activities.

Anti-bacterial Activity

Manufacturer's Description

With growth in world population and the spread of disease, the number of antibiotic resistant microorganisms is rising along with the occurrence of infections from these microorganisms. With this increase in health awareness, many people focused their attention on educating and protecting themselves against harmful pathogens. It soon became more important for antimicrobially finished textiles to protect the wearer from bacteria than it was to simply protect the garment from fiber degradation. The need for antimicrobial textiles goes hand-in-hand with the rise in resistant strains of microorganisms. Towel picks up allergens, germs, and bacteria, locking them deep within the textile’s fibers. With silver’s added antimicrobial benefits, contaminant-attacking ions are released within the towel, stopping the growth of bacteria.
