Nanosilver is a product with unique properties. Silver as a noble metal has got low reactivity and high stability, as well as strong biocidal properties against a wide spectrum of microorganisms. Reducing the size of silver to nanoscale (a nanometer is a billionth of a meter) causes a rapid increase in silver activity, which depends on the contact surface of the particles with microorganisms. Each gram of nanoparticles has a gigantic surface similar to a football field!

1 meter = 1,000,000,000 nanometers
THE IMPACT OF NANOSILVER ON MICRO-ORGANISMS
Depending on the nanosilver content of the finished product, different levels of microbiological protection (from bacteriostatic to bactericidal) are obtained. Nanosilver works already at 1-25 ppm. For many substances, these are trace concentrations, but for nanosilver it is sufficient to protect against 650 strains of bacteria, mold, viruses and fungi. The effectiveness of nanosilver addition has been repeatedly confirmed by numerous microbiological tests that we always carry out for ready-to-use products.
The advantage of active silver particles over conventional chemicals is their permanent action on the cells of microorganisms. Surface saturation with nanosilver prevents the growth of microorganisms and reduces the risk of infection. Tissue-penetrating microorganisms can cause numerous diseases, that often lead to serious complications.

NANOPAPER ™ PRODUCT QUALITY
Our company buys the highest quality colloidal silver. For 95% of the colloid content, nanoparticles are in the range of 5nm to 15nm. Nanoparticles can work effectively in paper for up to several years. The smaller the particle, the more effectively it destroys microorganisms. The technology that has been developed by our company ensures minimal agglomeration of nanoparticles that has been confirmed by photographs using a SEM electron camera (scanning electron microscope). Our company has got research studies from reputable scientific institutions confirming the effectiveness of our technology. Unlike silver ions products, our products are completely safe.
Investigating the environmental impact of nanosilver
These days, antimicrobial silver nanoparticles are used in a variety of ways, such as for preventing unpleasant odours caused by bacteria in sport shirts or socks. While silver’s antibacterial properties have been appreciated, there has always been a concern over the effect nanosilver may have when it is released into wastewater during washing. Research has shown that nanosilver presents a minute risk to the environment as it is transformed into a nearly insoluble substance called silver sulphide in wastewater treatments.
