Washable Antiviral and Antibacterial Textiles
Coronaviruses are now shown to reside on textiles and garments for more than one day. Textiles can act as the transmission medium of viruses. Antimicrobial fabric treatments that are typically used do not demonstrate virucidal capability and many of those are not durable against multiple laundry cycles. NAMI’s washable antimicrobial textile is the result of surface modification of finished fibers with covalently bonded antimicrobial agents, in contrast to the traditional physical coating on fibers. NAMI’s textile has outstanding virucidal performance against viruses. The finish is durable against multiple laundry cycles, and will not change the color fastness and touch feel of the finished fabric.

By safely controlling the melatonin secretion through mimicking natural light, users can be more energetic during the daytime and sleep better at night. It is an ideal choice for those looking for better quality of living.
NAMI’s Smart Protection Materials Based Impact Absorbing Floor Mat
Energy absorption and impact protection materials can be used as floor mat to reduce personal injuries especially for the elderly and children.

The material will self-reinforce upon falling and impact to dissipate and transform the impact energy into heat. It also has a closed cell structure with good waterproof performance. Outperforming the conventional products, NAMI’s floor mat is odorless, with excellent slip resistance, low water absorption, long lifetime and good flame retardation.
