How does Silver ionization odourless protection work?
Our silver ionization treatment permanently protects your garment and prevents odour from building up. Silver Chloride is added to the fabric and is the active odour killing agent. Silver Chloride occurs in nature and is commonly used for storing drinking water and for medical appendages. Our chemical treatment partner in Germany also ensures that this silver ion treatment is EPA-certified and that the active ingredient complies with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 bluesign®
Sweat itself is odourless; however, the combination of moisture and heat creates the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. When bacteria reacts with the protein found in sweat, odour is created. The silver ion treatment inhibits the growth of odour producing bacteria, effectively protecting your garment from odour build-up.
One gram of our silver ion treatment solution can cover approximately 600,000 cm² in surface area. The increased coverage area can reduce the required resources by approximately 100 times, compared with using metallic silver, while still achieving the same performance.
Honeycomb Modular Padding: Cushioned socks have become a popular choice due to the increased level of support and comfort provided as well as the ability to help reduce blistering. However, cushioning often reduces breathability, trapping heat and moisture in. Some socks are (ineffectively) designed with mesh only on top to allow heat to escape. With KG socks you don’t have compromise: have full cushioned comfort and support, while simultaneously receiving enhanced breathability even through the bottom of the sock.
