Far infrared technology
MatX Smart Materials has developed a Far Infrared (FIR) technology that is biocide-free and can be incorporated into polymers and liquids using only natural ingredients. This technology is versatile and can be applied to a wide range of polymers and production techniques. It has several benefits such as improving blood circulation, enhancing physical recovery, boosting body performance, and preventing/reducing signs of aging
The technology works by generating an interaction between an object and human skin. When the object comes in contact with the skin, the body heat is converted into far infrared radiation, which has been scientifically proven to have physical benefits. MatX has conducted numerous material tests to maximize the technology’s potential.
The FIR technology can also be combined with other technologies such as anti-microbial, making it ideal for producing medical devices and tools. The anti-microbial technology ensures that bacteria that come into contact with the object have a reduced chance of survival, making it suitable for products such as braces and soles.
MatX can provide the material with the applied technology for different production methods such as injection molding, extrusion, and FDM 3D printing.
The FIR technology not only improves blood circulation but also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, which can help prevent and reduce wrinkles. Collagen is a protein found in connective tissue, bones, blood vessels, and skin. It gives structure and firmness to the skin, and the FIR technology can stimulate its production from within the skin, contributing to the firmness and suppleness of the skin.
