Toray develops 'Mushon' deodorant material for clothing

May '08
Toray Industries Inc announced that it has developed a nanotechnology-based deodorant material for clothing. The new material, Mushon, specializes in reducing perspiration odor for clothing applications such as sportswear and work uniforms.

Mushon features anti-bacterial/deodorant properties, which meet the blue label standards specific to SEK Mark (JIS L1902 a value of bacteriostatic activity over 2.2). Particularly with nylon and polyester fabrics, Mushon reduces up to 80 percent of odor generated through perspiration and maintains its effectiveness after 20 home launderings.

Toray's Mushon recently saw extensive testing in the space uniform worn by Japanese astronaut Takao Doi during the Space Shuttle Endeavor's mission to the International Space Station in March 2008.

“We are extremely excited to introduce Mushon to our line of innovative fabric technologies,” says Kenny Gotcher, sales manager for Toray International. “Consistently our mantra at Toray has been to develop products that have truly innovative technologies. With all its possible applications for use, this new product is well suited for the outdoor industry.”

Toray plans to debut Mushon at the summer, Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Using Toray's 'NanoMATRIX' technology, an evenly coated layer of odor eliminating and antibacterial agents are applied onto the base of knitted/woven products (including polyester and nylon) in a post-finishing treatment.

As the base of these fabrics feature the largest surface area exposed to areas of perspiration, this application process has a higher rate of success than most conventional methods. Additionally, this application keeps materials feeling smooth to the touch because of the ultra-thin membrane evenly coated on the staple fibers composing the fabric.

Perspiration-wicking and quick drying properties of the treated fabrics are not sacrificed.
