Copptech protected Non woven products - Protecting the healthcare industry
Copptech technology incorporates antimicrobial formulations into woven and non-woven textiles, polymers, resins and rubbers, turning them into biocidal products, i.e. they neutralise and prevent the action of any harmful microorganism, such as viruses, bacteria and fungi, with an effectiveness of more than 99.9%. In particular, the development of non-woven fabrics has been beneficial in preventing the proliferation of hospital-acquired infections, as this line includes raw materials used in masks, medical gowns, pillowcases, caps and gurney covers, which are widely used in clinics and hospitals. Moreover, this is the same material used in wound dressings, pads and diapers.
“When the microorganism causing an infection comes into contact with a Copptech non-woven, it short-circuits its cell membrane, creating perforations. This allows the copper ions to enter, stopping the pathogen’s vital functions. Copptech technology helps to create an environment free of potentially pathogenic microorganisms around the skin, and if used as an adjunct in wound treatment, it will also contribute to the healing process,” explains Dr Luis Améstica.
People protection can be promoted through the use of technology and innovation. At Copptech, we firmly believe that health and wellbeing are possible and within our reach. The use of Copptech technology in the area of health would be a concrete and effective way to work towards decreasing the spread of pathogenic microorganisms.
