SILVER

HIGH TECHNOLOGY AGAINST HEAT AND COLD

Silver has been used for centuries to prevent and treat a variety of diseases, especially the infective types. It is well documented as silver coins were used in ancient Greece and at Roman times to disinfect stored water and many other liquids. Even today, NASA uses silver to preserve the purity of the Space Shuttle.

FEATURES

ANTIMICROBIAL

Because silver can eliminate a broad-spectrum of microbes. It works on microorganism cell walls. Thanks to this property, copper helps to reduce bad odor caused by some microbes.

PERMANENT

Because of its particular structure, it maintains a constant effectiveness over time, even after many washings.

ANTISTATIC

Because of its conductivity, the fiber absorbs and disperses electric charges accumulated from the environment or during physical exercise.

REFLETTING

Because it protects the body from absorbing static energy, electrosmog and UV rays.

NATURAL

100% natural, non-toxic and does not contain chemicals.

HEAT REGULATING

Because silver is an excellent conductor of heat, due to this characteristic it carries away excess heat, maintaining the body ideal temperature.

SILVER & HEALTH

Silver has very powerful antibacterial properties: the presence of only one part of elementary silver in a 100 million parts solution is enough to achieve an effective antibacterial action. Silver positive free radicals are an active antibacterial agent. In order to obtain a bactericidal effect, they must be available on the bacterial surface; as soon as it gets in contact with it, silver instantly destroys the microorganisms, blocking their respiratory system enzyme (ie energy production) and altering the DNA of the microbial cell walls without causing toxic effects on human cells.

In addition to the well known antibacterial properties, silver has the power to facilitate the healing of “lazy injuries” (difficult to recover from) and regenerate the damaged tissue.
The demonstration of a lower redness of inflamed lesions in contact with silver, certify the also anti-inflammatory properties of this precious element.

HIGH TECHNOLOGY AGAINST THE COLD…

Reflecting poweR. The reflectance of infrared (IR) in silver is greater than 95%. This value is higher than any other element, and it means that 95% of the radiant energy which comes into contact with silver is reflected back to its source. Consequently Resistex® Silver reduces to a minimum the dispersion of heat, reflecting on the skin its own energy. For this reason, clothing made with winter Resistex® Silver are much warmer than regular ones.

evapoRating poweR. As described above, Resistex® Silver accelerates the movement of moisture through evaporation. Consequently garments Resistex® Silver increase the well-being of the body during the hot season , minimizing the moisture in contact with the skin.

…AND THE HEAT

With the increase of temperature, irradiation loses its importance among the primary causes of heat transfer: the solutions against excessive temperature must solve problems of conduction, convection and evaporation. Resistex® Silver addresses the conduction and evaporation (while convection problems are solved by appropriate structuring of the fabric) using the following principles.

tHeRmal conductivity. Silver, of all the elements on earth, has the highest rate of heat conduction. This means that Resistex® Silver works actively to distribute the heat quickly and uniformly throughout the product, and to allow the subsequent transfer.

During the hot season, when conduction is the main agent of heat transfer, Resistex® Silver promotes the natural action of the body by accelerating the conduction from the heat emitted from our skin (as a traditional fabric simply provides a barrier to heat conduction). So the same way a silver spoon works in a cup of hot tea, Resistex® Silver conducts heat to the surrounding skin allowing the human body to cool down.
