Products of MasaTM are fiber sheets coated with a nano-scale metal film that include textiles, knitted materials, nonwoven fabrics and other types of sheets. With this thin, uniform metal coating, it is possible to create highly functional fibers that have various added values.
With metal film, no binder or other adhesive is used. Adhesion is achieved wholly by Physical energy at the molecular and atomic levels. Accordingly, there is no change in the base material’s condition(appearance, feel) or permeability to air.
In addition, metal film lowers the base material’s angle of contact with water and oil and increases hydrophilicity.
Metal film reflects and absorbs light (ultraviolet rays, visible rays, infrared rays), reducing its transmission through the base material.
Specifically, metal film includes the following effects:
Thermal and UVR Control Function
and more others.
For use in fashion apparel, sports apparel, interior, exterior, electric appliance, agriculture and medical attention equipment and other applications.
