Copper in clothing, benefits

Today, because of its long use as a disinfectant and because it is required for good health, many claims are being made about using copper in various products  including fabric. Copper impregnated fibers have been introduced, which enables the production of anti bacterial and self-sterilizing fabrics. These copper infused fabrics are marketed to be used in hospital settings to reduce infections, as an aid to help those suffering from asthma and allergies provoked by dust mites, and in socks to prevent athletes foot.

Experts say the market for anti-bacterial fabric has great potential, but competitors abound, particularly those who use silver, which also has anti bacterial qualities.
The interest in antimicrobials, especially antiviral coating, is very, very high,  said A. Blanton Godfrey, dean of the North Carolina State University College of Textiles in Raleigh. Whoever gets it right will have a very nice business.

Utilizing the properties of copper, two durable platform technologies have been developed by Cleva Copa: the first one plates cotton fibers with copper (Cu++) and the second one impregnates polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene, polyurethane, polyolefin, or nylon fibers with copper (Cu++).
