We attach a special group of molecules to the surface of the textile, so called quaternary ammonium compounds. They work similar to soap molecules and open the outer hull of viruses and bacteria through a high positive micro magnetic charge and “pop them like a balloon”. Viruses including Sars-CoV-2 and other microbes are deactivated upon contact. Antiviral Knit is safe to use, tested for skin compatibility according to ISO 10993.
The Nano Filter is super-thin fibers material that create a “sieve", just with nano-sized pores. This sieve filters and retains smallest particles, even those which are between 0.02-2 micrometer in diameter. Because its pores are so tiny it does not need any electromagnetic charge for filtering tiny particles. And thus: it can be washed more than 30 times without losing its filtration effect. This reduces waste: 1 Upper Hand Mask replaces 200 single use masks.
The particle filter takes out large dust particles and droplets from inhaled and exhaled air. This material also serves as carrier material for the high-performance Nano Filter fibers. These are attached to the particle filter as a super fine web during the electro-spinning processs. And when built into the mask, the particle filter protects the very delicate and thin Nano Filter during wear and wash. This increases the lifetime and sustainability of your mask.
We combine a super soft and skin friendly material with a treatment that prevents bacteria and microbes to build up. The material has a strongly positive micro-electric charge that attracts and destroys the negatively charged exterior of bacteria and microbes. Significantly less odor and dirt build up. And that means that you can wear self-cleaning cotton for longer before having to wash it.
