Our innovations are based on the science of the nature
Coveross creates its functional fabric and product solutions with scientifically proven and laboratory-certified methods. We amplify textiles with natural magic where the outside environment (1), Coveross materials (2) and the human body (3) join forces to create user benefits and sustainable value.
Photo-catalysts are capable of decomposing organic compounds such as toxic and bio-resistant pollutants into non-toxic gases in the presence of light. When a light beam hits the fabric, a photo-catalytic process starts – the light causes the minerals and metals to purify the material from various harmful substances without using chemicals.
Photocatalytic technology is widely accepted as sustainable eco-technology. That’s why we are continuously studying it to develop better methods for our textiles with Shinshu University in Japan.
Silver inactivates bacteria and viruses in seconds. Photocatalytic fiber-supported silver nanoparticles create a powerful process against microorganisms. Bacteria and viruses are inactivated with silver and then decomposed with a photocatalyst. These protective product solutions provide 99.9% antivirus, antibacterial and antifungal efficiency. Low silver concentration is non-toxic to human skin and causes almost no risk to human health.
Far infrared (FIR)
Far infrared (FIR) is a unique technique to improve the body’s microcirculation system in a novel way. When a textile touches the skin, six different minerals are released to boost blood circulation and raise the body temperature.
FIR technology has been extensively researched for its biological effects. FIR textiles offer a unique way to deliver FIR therapy for continuous use. For example, FIR textiles help treat hand arthritis and boost blood circulation for people with paralysis.
We are continually improving our FIR technology in collaboration with Shinshu University in Japan and material research partners in Finland.
An electrostatic force is one that exists between electrically charged particles or objects at rest.
A small electric charge is applied to fabrics to reject microbes, so they don’t stick on the fabric. We can produce a minimal cation charge into the fabric, thereby repelling viruses that are also cation charged.
