What Is So Special About Nefful's Neoron Negative Ion Fabric?
WHAT IS NEORON?
Neoron is a new fiber invented exclusively for Nefful by Teiken Limited and launched in 2014.
The name Neoron comes from the word NE which stands for Nefful and Neo, meaning new, as its newest fiber creation.
NEORON fiber retains all the same features as TEVIRON: Which are Excellent Heat Insulation, Superb moisture Permeability, Excellent Flame Retardancy and Negative Static Electricity (Negative Ions)
WHAT MAKES THE FABRIC UNIQUELY SPECIAL?
The largest organ in our body is our skin. We are only able to absorb 15% of negative ions through breathing. But when we use our skin to absorb negative ions, the efficiency rises to 85%.
4 HEALTH BENEFITS OF TEVIRON & NEORON
1. GENERATES HIGH DENSITY OF NEGATIVE IONS
In a simple test when Teviron and wool were rubbed together, the static tester showed that Teviron carried a negative charge (meter pointing left) and wool (pointing right) carried a positive charge.
In another test,, conducted by Japan’s Fiber Industry Testing Institute”, a comparison between major fibers’ electrostatic, proved that TEviron carries negative charge whichever material it was rubbed against.
In general, when two items are rubbed against each other, the static induced would leave one item carrying a positive charge and the other with a negative charge. This is known as the Triboelectric effect.
When Teviron rubs against other material, or the skin, it generates negative ions.
2. SUPERIOR MOISTURE AND WATER PERMEABILITY
Teviron has significant moisture/ water permeability and to absorb minimal water, keeping the wearer warm and dry.
In the chart below, is Tiejin’s experiment results. It shows when we perspire, cotton will absorb the moisture and make you feel sticky or uncomfortable; however, Teviron’s absorption is 0, so sweat can be vaporized quickly and make you feel dry and fresh.
3. EXCELLENT HEAT REGULATION
Tiejin Ltd. Osaka Research Centre used different fiber materials with the same thread size and knitting standard to knit several elbow supports. Then they were placed onto test subjects and tested temperature differences between the covered and uncovered parts of the skin. Axis Y represents temperature differences; Axis X represents room temperature.
While each material did not show freat differences less than 20 degreesC, but the temperature dropped, especially at -5 degreesC, showed significant differences. Teviron has shown excellent temperature preservation as the temperature drops.
Figure 2 are the results of an experiment conducted by Tiejin Ltd. The right side of the garment was wool, then the left Teviron. A heat conductor was used to test the temperature and results were shown through the computer screen (warmer temperature indicates more heat is lost and not preserved in the body).
In Figure 3, when the lab set the temperature to 5 degreesC, the right side with wool has shown warm colours, and the Teviron side has shown cool colors (teh warmer the color meant the more heat was lost). Therefore, it proved that Teviron has extraordinary heat preservation to keep people warm in cold weathers.
This is why Teviron undergarments were chosen by the famous Mountaineer Team to the Himalayas and also by a group of Japanese challengers to the Arctic Circle. If you use undergarments and bedding that have insufficient heat insulation, you will feel icy cold, causing blood vessels to constrict, restricting the nutrients and oxygen sent out to the cells.
4. SAFETY / NON-INFLAMMABILITY
Teviron itself has low flammability because it consist of non-inflammable content, making it very safe to use.
