Copper has high 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.



Because copper 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.


Because copper is present in the superoxide dismutase enzyme. It has a strong antioxidant valid action eliminating free radicals, the cause of aging.


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


Because copper is necessary for growth and for the development of the metabolism. It is essential for good health.


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


Because it speeds up the evaporation process of perspiration,slow down the formation of humidity on the skin and keeps the temperature constant.


In human body metabolism, copper is an essential element for children development, 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. It’s present in a human adult in the extent of 1.4 – 2.1 mg per kilo of body weight, amount which is three times higher in the first years of life.

An adult needs a daily intake of 0.9 mg of copper per day (as determined by the National Academy of Science, USA).

A daily intake of copper is therefore necessary to maintain a good balance, especially since, in normal conditions, the human body retains only 1% of ingested copper.


The Cupro therapy is the therapeutic use of copper or its salts. Copper bracelets were used 6000 years before Christ, and among those who suggested them in order to improve the state of health we can name Aristotle, Galen, Hippocrates, and Avicenna. A survey on 300 people, suffering from arthritis and who wore copper bracelets, showed that a “significant number” of them has claimed to have had benefits from the bracelet.

Furthermore, studies showed like bracelets had lost 50 mg over a period of 50 days.

The Cupro Therapy, in conclusion, shows how copper can be assimilated not only through food and drinking water, but also through the skin.


Resistex® Copper fights germs and bacteria potentially harmful to human health: it’s an antibacterial, which means it’s able to inhibit the breeding of bacteria. Metals such as copper and silver are known as bactericidal agents and this effect is due to their action on the cell wall of the microorganism. This property helps reducing odors caused by bacteria.

The range of yarns Resistex® Copper is used for its anti-static nature, for its excellent thermal conduction and its antibacterial and beneficial properties for the human body.
