INTRODUCTION TO CELL SOLUTION PROTECTION
Cell Solution® Protection fibers are natural cellulosic manmade fibers. The main raw material is wood pulp from non-endangered trees, and the additive parafin is refined plant oil.
Cell Solution Protection fiber is available as follows:
|composition||cellulose (> 61%), permethrin ( > 8%), stabilized paraffin ( > 16%), minerals (rest %)|
|tenacity||21 cN/tex (conditioned); 17 cN/tex (wet)|
|elongation||up to 15%|
FUNCTIONALITY OF CELL SOLUTION PROTECTION
Cell Solution® Protection fibers provide effective and durable protection against insects – such as ticks and mosquitoes. Via direct spinning, the insect repellent permethrin is embedded in the Cell Solution® fiber core and migrates to the fiber surface in a tightly controlled manner. The patented technology ensures that a small, but just enough amount of permethrin is diffused from the inner of the Protection fiber to the surface.
Cell Solution Protection protects from insects such as:
- malaria transmitting mosquitos
- TBE transmitting ticks
With the insect repellent properties, Cell Solution Protection is especially suited for when insecticidal protection is demanded as it is for work clothes, military garments, protective clothes or mosquito nets.
Permethrin is an insecticide in the Pyrethroid family, which are synthetic chemicals that act like natural extracts from the chrysanthemum flower. Permethrin affects the nervous system in insects, causing muscle spasms, paralysis and eventually death. It does not however affect humans and most other mammals. In the soil permethrin is broken down by microorganisms and sunlight.
WHO recommend permethrin (C21H20Cl2O3, CAS-Number: 52645-53-1) in the protection of Malaria and TBE (Tick Bone Encephalitis found in Scandinavia and Central/Eastern Europe), both of which are serious diseases.
