Anti-odor and antibacterial socks
Having silver nanoparticles with sizes below 100 nm in polyamide thread
Negative growth of common E. Coli and S. Aureus bacteria indicating inhibitory effects of silver nanoparticles
This product is viscose-polyamide socks including polyamide thread containing silver nanoparticles. The use of silver in the production of textiles has caused progress in development of health care. In order to reduce body odor, formation of microorganisms produced in sweat should be prevented. Silver has antibacterial properties and due to high diffusion rate of silver nanoparticles, it can destroy microorganisms.Silver is an effective antimicrobial agent and in the form of nanoparticles, it provides terrific driving forces for diffusion, which allows chemical reactions to occur at a high rate. In the case of odor-resistant clothing, the textile industry recognizes that silver nanoparticles offer distinct properties that combat bacterial growth and reduce body odor.
