There are many types of copper masks. Among them, when comparing Medifiber Blue Mask and Scasis CF Mask, the Medifiber mask is like its name sake a blue mask as opposed to the normal white mask. This is because a special fiber combining copper ions surrounds the outer surface of the mask. You can think of it as a form of applying an antibacterial film to the mask surface. And since this mask contains a replaceable interior it can be used multiple times by replacing the interior. This mask recommended for those who are concerned about the virus attached to the mask surface or those who think it is a waste to wear a disposable mask every day. However, it is necessary to pay special attention to surface contamination while using it.
According to a review of copper published by Kobert in 1895, copper has been used to treat acute chronic diarrhea, and epidemics like cholera. It is also said to be effective for eczema, tuberculosis, and syphilis thanks to various minerals within copper. And in 1966, John R. J. Sorenson proved that the silver-copper complex was effective in treatment. Copper complexes have since been used to treat patients with arthritis and other chronic degenerative diseases.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated copper as an antibacterial metal that suppresses infections such as E. coli, in-hospital infections, pneumonia, and allergies. The copper component is one of a group of metal elements essential for maintaining human life, containing about 1.4-2.1mg per 1kg of body weight, and is essential for normal metabolism and gene expression processes. However, because the body is unable to synthesize copper, the essential amount must be provided through diet. Deficiency of copper can lead to symptoms such as anemia, osteoporosis, low white blood cell count, immunity deficiency, and high cholesterol levels.
In this article, I'm going to cover the topic of Aerosilver. Aerosilver is an antimicrobial fiber developed by a company called “Hyosung,” and is the first Korean yarn maker to acquire the SF mark granted by FITI. The achievement of this SF mark certification is due to the amazing advantages of this fiber.
