Antibacterial fabrics mainly produced by antibacterial agent, its application is widely, includes textile, auxiliary fabrics and semi-finished fabrics.
Proved by Chinese academy of preventive medicine and other authorities testing and applications, antibacterial fabric can completely kill staphylococcus aureus, gonococcus, streptococcus, pseudomonas aeruginosa and other bacteria, fungi and moulds, after 100 washes the antibacterial rate still more than 90%, and safety to the human body. Suitable for hospital, bed sheets in the hotel, quilt cover, work wear and underwear.Antibacterial fabric is with good safety and keep the cloth clean, also can prevent the regeneration and propagation of the bacteria. Antibacterial agent can dye polyester and nylon fiber in a high temperature, it will be fixed in the fibers and be protected by the fibers, so have washable and reliable antibacterial property. The antibacterial principle is destroy bacterial cell walls, due to intracellular osmotic pressure is 20-30 times of extracellular osmotic pressure, so the cell membrane is destroyed, cytoplasm is leaked, so microbial metabolic process is annulled, thus make the microbial unable to growth and reproduction.
Inorganic antibacterial material was developed in the mid of 1980s, has the advantages of heat resistance, durability, continuity and security. Currently the research on the application of inorganic antibacterial materials mainly involves metal elements antibacterial agent, photocatalytic materials antibacterial agent and nano materials antibacterial agent, mainly used in textile, plastic, paint and ceramic etc..
