What is Far infrared?

Far infrared (FIR) technology has been around for many years. It has been proven to have many benefits for the human body. In recent years, Matx has managed to incorporate this technology into a wide range of polymers that can be used for the production of medical devices. Examples such as braces, splints, masks, and sports articles. This innovative use of FIR technology has revolutionized the medical and sports industries, offering a natural, non-invasive way to improve physical well-being and performance.

How does it work?

So, what exactly is FIR(X) technology, and how does it work? Far infrared radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation that is invisible to the naked eye but can be felt as heat. It is the same type of radiation that is emitted by the sun and is responsible for making us feel warm on a sunny day. FIR technology involves incorporating FIR-emitting materials into polymers. These polymers can then be used to produce a wide range of medical and sports products.

The benefits

It has the ability to improve blood flow and circulation. When far infrared waves are absorbed by the body, they penetrate deep into the tissues and stimulate the production of nitric oxide, a compound that helps to relax blood vessels and improve blood flow. Improved circulation can have many benefits for the body, including reducing inflammation, accelerating the healing process, and reducing pain.

Another benefit of FirX technology is its ability to regulate body temperature. FIR waves can penetrate deep into the body, which can help to raise the core body temperature. This can be especially beneficial for athletes who need to maintain optimal body temperature during training or competition. FIR technology can help to keep the body warm during cold weather, and also help to keep the body cool during hot weather.

The perfect additive

Our FirX can be the ideal additive for medical and cosmetic products that can help to alleviate pain and promote healing. For example, FIR-emitting braces and splints can be used to treat conditions such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. FIR-emitting masks can be used to slow down or even reduce the visible signs of aging.

In the sports industry, our FirX technology can been used to produce a range of sports products that can help athletes to perform at their best or even help preventing injuries.


This FirX technology is a powerful tool that can have many benefits for the human body. MatX can provide you a standard or custom-made masterbatch to produce your needs of future products with benefits we all need some day.
