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. Silver ions and compounds are highly toxic for a wide range of bacteria and they show very low toxicity for human cells. So that, the use of silver in different forms has been a common method for antibacterial protection. It is important to remark that the antibacterial effect of polymer-silver nanocomposit is preserved and good antibacterial efficiency against a wide variety of bacteria is observed.
Antibacterial textiles have a wide range of applications in clothing industry especially in antibacterial socks manufacturing. Antibacterial socks are recommended for people who suffer from foot odor.
This product is antibacterial socks containing silver nanoparticles with the average size around 100 nm
In nano-dimension, antibacterial effect of silver increases significantly, so that they are able to destroy over 650 bacterial species. With decreasing particle size, the release of silver ions increases, leading to increasing their antibacterial activities. Ag nanoparticles interact with sulfur and phosphorus compounds of membrane proteins affecting cell morphology and structure, causing its death.
