Taiwanese company develops antibacterial fabric

A few days ago, ACTife released a new technology for antibacterial fabric. These textile materials utilise semiconductor sputtering technology, which uses silver, copper and titanium sputtering to produce a hydroxyl radical on the surface of the fabric.

With COVID-19 becoming
more deadly with mutations and secondary infections becoming more frequent,
people have shifted our focus from using protective masks to rushing and
cutting lines to get the new vaccine. A company has created a textile that is
about to be a game changer in our virus invested world. A few days ago, ACTife
released a new technology for antibacterial fabric. These textile materials
utilise semiconductor sputtering technology, which uses silver, copper and
titanium sputtering to produce a hydroxyl radical on the surface of the fabric.
Because hydroxyl radicals can destroy viruses and bacteria in medicine and make
their proteins lose their function. Therefore, the materials developed by
ACTife can not only block viruses and bacteria, but also use hydroxyl radicals
to prevent contact with the bacteria and viruses while they are adsorbed on the
surface of the fabric. This technology has been verified by the SGS, Boken,
Intertek, and Japan SEK to effectively sterilise 99.9 per cent of bacteria and
germs. FYI https://health-ecoforum.medium.com/

 

The research team of Fu
Jen Catholic University Taiwan published an anti-virus research report on
ACTife’s nano sputtered fabric and Stated “The fabric successfully blocked
and absorbed the germs and bacteria on the cloth, which prevented secondary
infection of the virus.” M L Chang,
Chairman of ACTife
, said: “This sputtering technology was originally
used in semiconductors. When the pandemic broke out, our research team
discovered that the three-metal nano-atoms of silver, copper and titanium used
in medical materials had an excellent sterilisation effect, so we began to
develop products such as masks and protective gears. We look forward to this
technology and what it can contribute to global pandemic prevention.”

 

This technology generates
free radicals which causes the side chains of amino acids on the surface make
proteins lose their function, thereby making germs harmless and greatly
reducing the risk of infection. Not only can it apply to masks, but anything
that uses fabric like towels, socks, clothing or air filters. CEO of ACTife Dr. Y. P. Lu also pointed
out: “The advantage of physical antibacterial properties is that it makes
the material more durable and does not precipitate any toxic or undesirable
substances. As of now, the most used antibacterial chemical is bleach and the
substance of bleach is actually a high concentration of sodium hypochlorite,
which is well known for killing germs but it is harmful to the human body and
the environment in terms of smell and touch.

 

The silver, copper, and
titanium with splashes of ACTife Plating technology is a physical antibacterial
technology that produces a free radical shield on the surface of the fabric.
This highly active free radical shield eliminates bacteria and viruses that
pass through it. It has the excellent function of long-lasting and washable
resistance. In addition, the surface of the material does not stick to bacteria
and viruses, and can be safely reused. Compared with ordinary masks and
protective clothing on the market, it is not only more environmentally
friendly, but also does not cause pollution and other infection risks. With its
innovative antibacterial and antiviral technology, Actife has now entered the
medical material market and is looking to use their innovative technology to
further enhance our protection against coronavirus.
