why copper?

Copper is a well-known antiviral and antibacterial material, which has a strong effect due to copper ions. Copper is registered with the EPA for public health due to its proven antiviral properties. When bacteria and copper ions come into contact, the copper ions weaken the outer membrane of the bacterial cell through the oxidation process. Copper is toxic to the inside of the cell. The copper ions are able to break open cells. The cell then loses its vital structure and eventually dies. This kills the SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as influenza viruses.

Face Masks that fight MASKNE

Maskne is mask Acne.

if you’re like most people then you’re experiencing the pesky pimples popping up around your chin and nose caused by irritating fabrics and built-up bacteria. Gone are the days of homemade masks from whatever cloth was on hand. That said, we’ve come a long way in terms of mask options to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. From breathable materials to options made with antibacterial fabric, thanks to technology we can protect our community and skin.

Can copper help against the new coronavirus mutations?

In the last few months, there has been a high rise in the market for materials with copper—face masks, underwear, sheets and socks—with manufacturers using the metal’s germ-killing ability.

Is copper masks effective at stopping coronavirus? Let’s check what new research says.

the sciense

A Copper Oxide Fabric (Copper Oxide impregnated in Polypropylene nonwoven spunbond) was successfully developed by Israeli scientists for medical wound dressing and was proven to be safe and effective against viruses and bacteria. This scientific achievement, backed by over 30 registered patents, was cleared by the FDA in 2018. Leveraging this achievement, a special technology (patented and licensed) of applying copper oxide into a non-woven medical facemask was invented and successfully applied.

Does copper infused face masks help against Covid-19?

Some new research shows that copper-infused face masks may help with coronavirus strains.

Now days a face mask has become the new norm, and masks that claim to be effective at killing bacteria are becoming increasingly popular, whether they be infused with elements such as silver or copper, or as snoods with special nano coatings. We look at whether copper-infused masks are worth considering, and why they may offer an extra level of protection.

how it works?

As proven in multiple researches and laboratories tests the Copper’s Potent Antibacterial and Antiviral Properties. Copper Oxide micro-particles are applied on non-woven non-binding fabric layers, repel viruses, and bacterias. – The same Copper particles eliminate new viruses every single day, forever – The copper oxide particles are potent for life and their ability to repel viruses do not decline over time

the technology

Israeli Copper Inside Mask material is produced from a tiny amount of copper particles CU2O which are blended during the development of polymers. The raw material for the masks produced in Israel, embeds various copper formulations in select polymers that enable finished products to deliver the desired impact.

DUAL SIDE EFFECT

he mask itself is made out of three layers. The outer layer prevents droplets from entering and holds microscopic copper oxide polymers. The middle layer traps small particles that may pass through the outer layer. It also prevents the flow of particles outward. The inner layer is close to the nose and mouth and was designed to absorb moisture, also holds microscopic copper oxide polymers.

A tiny amount of copper particles are blended into the mask hence the brownish or salmon-pink color. The copper antiviral properties do not decline over time. So as long as the mask is physically intact, it provides protection without a need for sterilization.

Layer A:
Copper micro-particles based external non-woven non-binding fabric provides bacteria-free clean airflow

Layer B:
The internal non-woven fabric keeps the bacteria trapped in the layer

Layer C:
Copper micro-particles based external non-woven non-binding fabric provides bacteria-free clean airflow
