Copper blended with textiles for youthful looks

The applications of copper go back by a few thousand years. In India, people drink water stored overnight in copper vessels, since it is supposed to remove all the impurities and make the digestive system to function properly.

Egyptians in ancient days, used to transport water through copper pipelines to benefit from the same properties that has benefitted the Indians. Ship builders have used copper to shield the hulls from water algae, again since centuries.

This and many other applications across many countries and since thousands of years, tempted Cupron, an Israel based company to put the varied properties of copper to good use for the benefit of mankind by means of textile products.

Cupron Inc. has created a cost effective platform technology that utilizes the qualities of copper and binds copper to textile fibers, allowing for the production of woven, knitted and non-woven fabrics containing copper-impregnated fibres.

These fibres contain antimicrobial protection against microrganisms such as bacteria and fungi that attack Cupron fibers. Similarly, copper may be integrated into latex and other polymeric products at the time of manufacturing.

Independent testing laboratories have demonstrated Cupron's efficacy in deactivating a wide variety of microorganisms. Cupron's proprietary copper oxide compound is natural and long lasting and is biocompatible for non-intrusive medical devices.

Cupron's manufacturing technology permanently binds its proprietary copper compound to textile fibres and non-woven fabrics. Cupron yarn can be used to weave fabrics and Cupron powder is added at the slurry stage for paper or polymer products.

The protection afforded by such products will last as long as the products themselves, regardless of multiple washing or abrasion. Only a small percentage of Cupron fibre needs to be included in applications to be effective.

Among the functional and protective textile products are healthcare textiles like beddings, curtains, gowns, uniforms, towels, masks, catheters, gloves and gauze that will provide protection against microbial attack.

Clothing, which significantly reduce bacteria induced odor, socks that are protected from fungus, and underwear that is protected against degradation by common fungus and bacteria among many other properties.

Among the consumer products introduced by the company is a pillowcase, which claims to help reduce wrinkles and crows feet (in about four weeks), just by sleeping on a pillow covered in this pillowcase.

The fabric of the pillowcase is soft copper colored and feels almost as silky by giving a luxurious feeling and is created with Cupron's manufacturing technology to permanently bind its proprietary copper compound to the fibre.

Cupron has patented the technology that unleashes the power of natural copper oxide, which gently nourishes the skin, making it appear younger and healthier-looking apart from other products which keep you feeling fresh and clean!
