Nallwailli Protect is just about to launch a new range of masks with copper Nano technology but what is it and why is that a good thing for masks?
“Nanotechnology” has become the modern day buzzword in new technological development and popping up more in products for its anti viral and bacterial properties. It describes many types of research in which the characteristic dimensions of the materials of interest are less than about a micron, or 1,000 nanometers (nm). A nanometer is one billionth of a meter (0.000,000,00 1 m).

Metals have long been known for their antibacterial and anti-viral properties. The ancients often used copper bowls or silver plating to minimise the spread of disease. However, later studies in expanding their use had always found issues with the way that metals oxidize and corrode.
By using metals on a nanoscale, researchers have been able to avoid these problems. The nanocoatings also use a minute amount of metal, with particle sizes that allow them to be easily embedded into a polymer paint or varnish. Given all these advantages, maybe nanotechnology has a profound role to play in the fight against COVID-19, as well as keeping everyone healthier in general.
The Nallawilli protect range of masks uses nano made out of Biodegradable Cellulosic membrane Nanofilm, a natural polymer used in a wide range of medical applications, such as tablet coating. Its infused with activated carbon & copper particles having proven antimicrobial properties to give you an extra level of protection.
