We say unexpected just because nobody would take for granted the potentiality of this raw material in the textile field; nor nobody would expect that garments and furnitures could be made with copper. Regardless, history teaches, and the present manifests it. Back in time copper was used as proactive multivitaminic already by the time of the ancient Greece and then Roman Empire through what we commonly name as: Cupro Therapy.

Beyond the acronym, this is properly the definition of copper therapeutic use, and reading books we can see that In 6.000 B.C., copper bracelets were suggested to improve health, in fact they were used by important characters like: Aristotle, Galen, Hippocrates and Avicenna.
A survey on 300 people suffering from arthritis, who wore copper bracelets, showed that a significant number of them has received benefits from the bracelet.
Other studies proved that the same bracelet would have lost 50 mg over a period of 50 days. Thanks to the innovative yarn based on copper filament, Tecnofilati is able to ensure human body’s wellness thanks to its main properties perfect for three main essential uses:

  • biochemist use: it allows skin to absorb copper;
  • electromagnetic use: as a resonant frequency;
  • bioelectric use: regulating microorganism.

This is an important discovery based on the ancient Cupro Therapy, that shows how copper can be assimilated by the skin, not only by eating or drinking. Copper has thermal conductivity characteristics and antibacterial properties. It is an essential element to the human body. Resistex® Copper is a high-tech yarn obtained by the union of natural or artificial fibers with pure copper. Copper yarn by Resistex® is antimicrobial because it eliminates a broad-spectrum of microbes, working on microorganism cell walls. Thanks to this property, Resistex Copper helps to reduce bad odor caused by some microbes. It is permanent because thanks to its particular structure, it maintains a constant effectiveness over time, even after many washings. Copper is antioxidant and helps fighting free radicals, which causes the aging.

Resistex Copper is antistatic because of its conductivity, the fiber absorbs and disperses electric charges accumulated from the environment or during physical exercise. So Resistex Copper is beneficial for the human body, as copper is necessary for the growth and for the metabolism. It is essential for good health. Copper yarn is thermoregulator and it speeds up the evaporation process of perspiration, slowing down humidity on the skin and keeping the temperature constant. In a human body copper is essential for children growth, bone strengthening, the formation of red and white blood cells, iron transport, cholesterol and glucose metabolism, heart contraction and brain development. A deficiency of copper, on the contrary, can lead to health problems.
