How does SILVERPLUS® work?
Micro-structured titanium dioxide is the carrier of the active component silver chloride, on which SILVERPLUS® is based. In the case of moisture (eg perspiration) silver ions with antimicrobial (flexible response) effect are set free from a virtually infinite deposit.
Equilibrium of titanium oxide, silver chloride and silver ions with antimicrobial effect in moist medium (eg perspiration)
Due to its large active surface SILVERPLUS® is already effective in very small quantities. One gram of the micro-structured SILVERPLUS® has a superficial extent of ca. 600,000 cm2. Already 1 ppb of mobile silver ions can inhibit bacterial growth significantly. Hence silver ions in SILVERPLUS® are more efficient by far than other antimicrobial products. This is reflected in the low application quantities of SILVERPLUS®.
