Silver nanoparticles are nanoparticles of silver in the range of 1 nm and 100 nm in size. While frequently described as being 'silver' some are composed of a large percentage of silver oxide due to their large ratio of surface-to-bulk silver atoms.
Nano-silver is widely used in many consumer products due to its unique optical, electrical, and thermal properties and extraordinarily efficient at absorbing and scattering light. A wide range of consumer products that take advantage of these properties through the integration of Nano-silver. Some of these are:
Bacteria inhibiting coatings for textiles, metals, ceramic materials, sportswear products, bedding and high hygiene underwear etc.
An additive for the nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, animal care and environmental remediation sectors.
Silver nanoparticles are incorporated in apparel, footwear, paints, wound dressings, appliances, cosmetics, and plastics for their antibacterial properties.
