The Fosshield® silver, and copper ions are given a positive charge and are attracted like a magnet to a microbe’s ion charged surface.

Ions…

An ion is an atom or molecule that has unequal numbers of electrons and protons to give it a positive or negative charge. The Fosshield® silver, and copper ions are given a positive charge and are attracted like a magnet to a microbe’s ion charged surface.

Silver & Copper

By combining both silver and copper, we provide enhanced and faster permanently embedded antimicrobial action. Fosshield® fiber is patented and is the first and only antimicrobial technology to successfully use a balance of silver and copper ions in a fiber.
