Silver +Ag antimicrobial technology

  • 1 min reading time

As an inorganic, natural mineral, the element of silver has a widely recognized antimicrobial function. Silver ions refer to silver atoms from which one or more electrons have been lost, and which exist in an ionic state. They have an oxidizing power and are often used in daily life for disinfection and sterilization.

1. Positively charged silver ions and negatively charged microbe cells are attracted to each other upon contact.

2. Silver ions pierce through the external surfaces of the cells and damage their DNA, as well as the protein structure, halting their metabolism and reproduction until they die. This explains the sterilization effect of silver ions.

3. After the cells have become inactive, silver ions leave but continue to act against microbes, delivering a constant antimicrobial performance with no toxicity or side effects.
