Silver is a time-tested solution to many of life’s daily concerns, it kills bacteria, heals cuts and scratches, protects from electromagnetic radiation, has excellent thermal regulation properties and is nontoxic.
Advanced ЯGen™ garments are made with the best antimicrobial agent – Silver, which is effective against bacteria and fungi. This remarkable technology enables our garments to kill a number of bacteria including those that cause odor. Cuts and sores in contact with ЯGen™ garments heal quicker as infection is reduced or eliminated.
ЯGen™ technology uses the thermal conductivity of Silver to regulate temperature. The Silver fibers minimize radiated heat loss by actively reflecting the body’s energy back to the skin. Silver is also the most thermally conductive element on the planet, this means that distribution of heat occurs quickly over the body.
Silver is also the most electrically conductive element known, and ЯGen™ fabrics use the conductive mesh architecture as a Farady cage to deflect electromagnetic fields away and protect the wearer from harmful EMI radiation. ЯGen™ Silver Armor shielding has been shown to provide modification to 99% of EMI radiation in the 800 MHz to 18 GHz frequency range.
Silver is a naturally occurring element, and there are no artificial chemicals that may cause fear of toxicity in any of our garments. The Silver is irreversibly bonded to the polymer fiber so it does not wash out. The ЯGen™ textiles have been tested for more than 100 washes without reduction in shielding effects. In fact, the hotter and wetter the environment, the more effective the silver fibers become. Silver fibers are the active ingredient in many FDA approved medical devices.
