Swicofil is your partner to help you improving your textile and industrial textile product performance, to find new solutions for existing products, to explore new product design possibilities.
Would your product benefit if it was designed with a product feature called "killing bad smell"? We have the solutions.
Example: smelly feet in shoes
Did you know that feet have over 250,000 or more sweat glands?
However! Most of the time we are wearing shoes of some kind. Now this poses a problem. If we are wearing shoes, there is no place for the evaporation to occur. Now our enemy 'bacteria' loves to thrive in warm moist environments. So if your feet are in an enclosed environment, then there will be a build up of warmth and moisture. Now it's not unusual for bacteria to find its way to your feet, because bacteria is literally everywhere.
The antibacterial effect of silver was already familiar many generations before us. Our ancestors used this property in everyday life, for example when they tossed a silver coin into milk or water to preserve their freshness for longer. These bactericidal properties of silver are also exploited by smartcel bioactive – albeit on the basis of highly competent scientific testing.
In co-operation with our Japanese supplier we were in a position to contribute to a solution of this and other similar "bad smell" problems. The supplier has stopped to work and therefore we strongly recommend the alternative smartcel bioactive
We do sell in bulk only - pallet load is minimum
Most shoes do have a woven label inside. If this label is produced with smartcel bioactive fiber in the yarn on back side of label or if such a sewing thread is used in a piece of fabric then bad odor will disappear.

A similar yarn can also be used for curtains, upholstery etc either as sewing thread or as yarn incorporated into the fabric. About 100 meters of this thread can kill bad odor in the area of abt. 10 square meters. If this thread is used in flat and wide finished products such as curtains, rugs, towels, woven tape in sports caps, pillow covers, bags, bed pads etc the effectiveness in wide areas will be much higher.
It is very effective in eliminating bad smell from ammonia and tri-methylamine which might originate from sweat, body odor, urine, rotten food, protein decomposition and garbage smells. It is very safe for all human beings in every respect.
Below comments refer to the Japanese Epochal anti odor yarn which is no longer available. We still keep this text here as piece of information. Our smartcel bioactive fiber have similar effects.
