Copper-containing antibacterial yarn is a functional yarn, which has the effects of blocking disease transmission, eliminating odors, and repairing the skin. It is a new type of antibacterial textile and is currently popular in Europe and the United States.
Copper compounds are soluble, and copper entering the body can be excreted with metabolism.
Copper is second only to iron and zinc in the human body and ranks third in the trace elements.
In addition, copper and iron are important raw materials for hematopoiesis. Copper plays an important role in the metabolism of connective tissues such as human skin and cartilage. It can catalyze the synthesis of hemoglobin and participate in the hematopoiesis process.
Therefore, copper-containing textiles can enhance the activity of skin growth factors, stimulate the skin to generate new capillaries, and use copper-containing medical dressings on wounds to speed up the healing rate of wounds.
Nano-copper attacks bacteria’s cell membranes, nucleic acids, and enzymes, destroying cell proteins and causing bacteria to die or lose their ability to divide and proliferate.
The “deodorizing function” currently used in the field of textiles mainly targets two situations, one is the stinky odor generated by the metabolism of bacteria or fungi, and the other is the body odor (including ammonia, isovaleric acid, acetic acid and other gases or liquids Produced flavor).
The good antibacterial properties of nano-copper yarns can inhibit the proliferation of bacterial fungi to prevent stinky odors. At the same time, the highly hydrophilic groups of copper fibers can neutralize ammonia, isovaleric acid and acetic acid to eliminate odors.
Nano-copper yarn has a particularly good effect on fungi. Its excellent antibacterial effect has a certain inhibitory effect on fungal skin diseases such as foot fungi, dermatitis, eczema, itching of the genitals, and odor of the body. The panties with nano-copper on the skin are attached to the skin. , Gynecology and other diseases can play a certain conditioning role.
Copper fiber’s bacteriostasis rate against E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Candida albicans is more than 99%

Application fields of copper yarn
The next application area of copper yarn is the medical market, but the technology has not passed rigorous scientific testing. So far, humans have used copper to spontaneously use antibacterial agents for thousands of years. The development of modern copper yarn technology has greatly expanded the scope of application, including: ulcer-coated gauze for gauze patients, gauze for beriberi patients, and Socks, medical masks, medical bedding, surgical masks and gauze, underwear, etc.
