Product detailed description
Benefits of nanosilver® antibacterial health socks
- socks for social events and everyday wear
- prevent the growth of bacteria - the source of odour
- prevent the formation of mould
- very soft hem that does not pinch
- suitable for people with swollen feet
- suitable for both men and women
Why do socks contain silver nanoparticles?
Silver nanoparticles can now be found in antibacterial products, industrial production, catalysis, household products and consumer goods. A very popular use is in sportswear, as silver nanoparticles help to eliminate odours.
However, their use can also be found in medical products, optical sensors, cosmetics, paint production, pharmaceuticals, food, diagnostics and cancer treatment.
These are silver particles ranging in size from about 1 to 100 nanometres. The most common are spherical, but they also come in other shapes. They are not usually made up of silver alone, but often also contain a relatively large percentage of silver oxide, which is formed by oxidation on the relatively large surface of the nanoparticles. The silver contained in nanosilver socks serves to prevent and help eliminate fungus, mycoses and eczema.
The silver molecules are firmly attached to the polyester fibers. Silver is known for its antibacterial properties - it eliminates bacteria produced in sweat that are the source of odor. Once the socks are dry, they do not smell. However, this process is not endless. After the first few uses, the odor is suppressed, but after multiple uses, the odor may appear. Therefore, these materials also need to be washed. However, compared to conventional socks, the intensity of the odour is incomparably lower, as is the speed of its onset.
High quality European organic cotton socks
The European brand Nanosilver® specializes in the production of quality socks that last and are suitable even for top athletes. The socks are treated with silver nanoparticles, which give the socks an antibacterial and anti-odor effect. They contain 63% cotton (organic cotton).
Who are nanosilver health socks for?
- suitable for diabetics
- popular with people suffering from swollen feet
- for men and women
- for patients with arthritis
- for anyone with sensitive ankles or toes
- 63% cotton (organic cotton)
- 16% polyester (nanosilver® antibacterial fiber)
- 19% polyamide
- 2% elastane (Lycra®)
Oraginc cotton - freshness, breathability and ecological origin
It is added to approximately 50% of the textiles produced. It has good tensile and abrasion strength, which even increases by about 20% when wet. It is therefore used to advantage, particularly on products that are subject to stress and have to be washed frequently. The products have a pleasant feel and can absorb a considerable amount of moisture, such as sweat.Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and chemical fertilisers. It is softer to the touch because its fibres are not damaged by the chemicals used in conventional cotton growing and processing. It smells cleaner because formaldehyde is not used in its processing. It is also kinder to the skin in terms of allergies because it does not contain harmful chemicals and, last but not least, it has a higher degree of breathability.
nanosilver® - antibacterial
The polyester fibers are firmly attached to silver molecules. Silver is known for its antibacterial effects - it eliminates bacteria produced in sweat, which are the source of odour. Once the socks are dry, they do not smell. However, this process is not endless. After the first few uses, the odor is suppressed, but after multiple uses, the odor may appear. Therefore, these materials also need to be washed. However, compared to conventional socks, the intensity of the odour is incomparably lower, as is the speed of its onset.
Polyamide - strength and durability
The excellent properties of polyamide include high dry and wet strength, high abrasion resistance, high elasticity, low specific gravity, large specific volume, very easy to maintain (washing, drying) and more. It is mainly used for hosiery and sportswear. Each washing increases the durability of polyamide fabrics or knits. Any symptoms of hypersensitivity of human skin when wearing polyamide products are not caused by the properties of the fibre but by dyes, detergent residues, etc.
Lycra® - elasticity and pliability
Gives the material greater elasticity (pliability) and resilience. The stretch of these fibres reaches up to eight times the length.
Maintenance of silver socks
Can be washed normally at 40°C, for gentle washing we recommend these products.
|Washing||We recommend washing at 40°C.|
|Bleaching||We do not recommend bleaching.|
|Ironing||No need to iron.|
|Chemical treatment||No chemical treatment.|
We recommend drying up to 60°C.
Do not use fabric softener!
To preserve the functionality of nanosilver® technology, we do not recommend the use of fabric softener.The fabric softener forms a film on the fibres which creates a barrier between the direct contact of the skin and the material. The silver molecules need to be in direct contact with the skin for perfect effectiveness.
If you happen to have mistakenly treated your clothes with fabric softener during washing, remove this protective film during the next wash.
""Customers are advised of possible negative reactions and damage to the material of nanosilver garments to the aggressive components of sweat, anti-perspirants and pre- and post-sun creams. For example, anti-perspirants containing DEET can dissolve synthetic fibres, including PES.""
Nanosilver® is a product brand of Nanotrade, one of the largest Czech sellers of nanotechnology goods. The nanosilver brand also includes functional clothing, including socks.
How do Nanosilver products work?
Nanosilver brand socks are enriched with silver nanoparticles that actively eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms. This prevents their further reproduction and fights against the smell.
