Functionality / Features
In many processes of every day life the human body resorts to existing copper depots in the organism. Copper is daily absorbed by aliment. The element is a necessary requirement for the production of the red blood pigment hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body. But copper is also jointly responsible for wound healing, cell growth, strengthening of the autoimmune system as well as for the constitution of the defensive forces and the bone structure.
The Lyocell fiber is charged with a copper salt solution. The active ingredient depots which are incorporated into the fiber section release a selected level of the active agent in the form of copper ions under the influence of humidity. Thus a low incorporation of hygienic already enable a permanent stop of the microbial contamination of filters, air-conditioning systems and functional non-woven, so that fungi, bacteria and viruses can not accrete.
hygienic has a proven fungicide, bactericide and antiviral effect. Thus the university hospital Jena attests the hygienic non-woven a powerful antibacterial effect inter alia to the test strain Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538 and to Klebsiella pneumonieae ATCC 352 (test report no. 25/2009).
Range of application
hygienic can be used wherever an enduring advancement of the hygienic conditions of equipment and immediate environment is necessary.:

smartfiber brings the intelligent world of smart polymers directly to your business.
We combine our unique, self developed functional fiber with various different functional polymers to manufacture products with out-of-the-ordinary and astonishing properties. The functional fiber is made from cellulose using a modified ALCERU® production process*. Both the biogenetic raw material and the production process are environment-friendly, and the fibers are biodegradable. The ALCERU ® technology is the result of scientific research and development by the Thüringische Institut für Textil- und Kunststoff-Forschung (Thüringen Institute for Textile and Plastics Research - TITK) in Rudolstadt. This innovation combines the familiar advantages of cellulose fibers, such as wearing comfort and optimal moisture absorption, with functional properties such as bioactivity and comfortable temperature adjustment. Overall, functional fiber is characterized by high ecological quality and resource conservation, excellent suitability for textile processing, wide versatility in application and high efficiency combined with an extremely good cost/performance ratio.
*The ALCERU® process is a protected registered trademark of the Thüringen Institute for Textile and Plastics Research (TITK) and is the name of an original and patented manufacturing process. For further information on the ALCERU® process please refer to the website www.titk.de .
To manufacture functional fiber, amine oxides and water are used to separate the cellulose directly and without chemical modification, and the textile fibers are then produced in a spinning process. The ability to mix organic and inorganic additives homogeneously into the fibers makes it possible to produce various functional materials on this common cellulose base.
