Copperline uses these special properties of copper in its patented copper-ion yarn. Processed in textiles, these are washable and have a long service life. Because: the high-quality ionized copper threads guarantee the effect even after many washes and ensure that the fabric produced in this way offers a maximum attack surface for fighting viruses and bacteria.
The following examples explain the relationship between the mode of action:
We use ionized copper yarn, an expensive raw material. The copper ions are distributed throughout the entire yarn material. This is technically more complex to manufacture than, for example, with 'encapsulated copper', a simpler and cheaper method in which a thin copper layer is only vapor-deposited on the outside of a normal yarn thread. Another method we heard about is "shooting" tiny copper nano-spheres into a tissue. With these methods, the copper washes off after a few washes. It is not yet known whether the smallest amounts of copper are inhaled (because the globules dissolve). Extensive test series have been carried out with our ionized copper yarn with the result that firstly, the effectiveness is still 100% even after many washes, and secondly, no particles are released. In the interests of your own health, Copperline guarantees that the right technology has been applied to the use of copper for the manufacture of masks.
- The patented three-dimensional fabric ensures that the woven copper thread has the greatest possible surface effect. We would like to explain this briefly figuratively: Imagine a spiral, perhaps like the one in a ring binder. As in such a spiral, our copper thread is interwoven with three layers of masking material. As a result, a virus that hits the mask material either directly through droplets or through aerosols is first spatially deflected by one of the three layers and then "caught" and destroyed at one point by the spiral copper threads. The three layers of the mask also increase the filter effect.
In the independent medical study, in which the Copperline material was tested alongside other copper textiles with regard to the effectiveness of the destruction of the CoVid-19 virus, our material performed particularly well. This is all the more remarkable as the other materials contain 49% copper and 60% copper, i.e. a significantly higher copper concentration than our 22% copper content. The scientists were able to prove that the three-dimensionally woven copper thread makes the surface particularly large and therefore the patented mask material has the comparatively highest effect.
“The DNA of the SARS-CoV-2 virus consists of a double helix, and this is held together with connections made of hydrogen. When these connections are broken, the DNA of the virus and bacteria is destroyed. Since copper is a charged metal, it breaks this hydrogen bond, so that the DNA of the virus and bacteria is destroyed. If the DNA is destroyed, the cell cannot survive. Copper has the best affinity for binding to the DNA molecules. "
