Anti-Bacterial Mechanisms of Metz-Tex


People have an increasing demand for additional functions of various products as technology advances and the quality of life increases. For example, besides basic functions, people hoped to expand or improve fabric functions. To allow for multiple functions, fabrics usually go through dipping, coating, or lamination processes to attach particles or ions with special functions to the fabric’s surface. For example, dissolving the particles or ions in solvents before dipping or spraying the solvents onto the fabric. Even though this method offers advantages in lower production costs and better manufacturing efficiency, the process cannot securely fix the particles or the ions on the fabrics. The particles or the ions would become easily detached by external forces or be rinsed away during wash cycles, temporarily impeding the function, and significantly reducing fabric life.

To address these issues, the inventor relied on years of experience in the industry conducting extensive studies and experiments to ultimately develop the equipment to produce anti-bacterial Metz-Tex fabric and the Metz-Tex product that is durable with high quality.

When being in contact with microorganisms, these special-processed,  


nanosized silver, copper, zinc, and titanium ions in Metz-Tex would penetrate the cell membranes to bind the proteins inside the cells and cause irreversible damage. The metabolic process of the microorganisms is disrupted which inhibits its growth and reproduction. The silver, copper, zinc, and titanium ions are then released from the dead organisms and continue their long journey to kill more microorganisms.

The silver, copper, zinc, and titanium ions would destroy the common components when in contact with the microorganism or disrupt its functions. According to Coulomb force, when the traces of silver, copper, zinc, and titanium ions are in contact with the cell membrane, the two forms a strong bond because of the negative charge the latter is carrying. The silver, copper, zinc, and titanium ions would then penetrate the cell membrane to react with the thiol group in the proteins, causing it to coagulate. When cellular synthetase activity is disrupted, the cells cannot reproduce and then die.

This indicates that the positively-charged nanosize silver, copper, zinc, and titanium ions contained in special-processed Metz-Tex fabric produced a “physical anti-bacterial” effect. The positive ions destroy cell membranes when in contact with bacteria to produce reactive oxygen species and annihilate cellular DNA to cause cell death.
