Basically it comes down to this:
Copperhead’s Scenturion Scent Control Technology utilizes a unique and proprietary copper fiber process that permanently binds copper to the fiber matrix of polyester, nylon or re-cycled polyester fibers. These copper fibers are designed to provide natural anti-odor, hygienic protection and enhance the appearance of skin texture against micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungi for the wearer.
Copper metal is shown to be more effective than silver at any temperature. A recent study completed at the University of South Carolina states that silver was only effective with its antimicrobial abilities at temperatures above 93 degrees and humidity above 90%. Copper however, was shown to maintain its antimicrobial efficacy at normal temperatures typical of everyday indoor and outdoor environments.

NanoGLIDE™ fabrics provide beneficial “tactile aesthetics”; to include (1) better fabric hand, (2) softer fabrics and (3) superior fabric loft. This means superior fabric bending, less flexural rigidity and improved compression and thickness. All of these factors impact comfort and hand; to include UV protection. These are the key fabric attributes to comfort; and the PTFE advantage; with every fabric made with NanoGLIDE™.
PTFE is extremely hydrophobic; thus wicking will occur very fast (as drying); but it will also be high performing for not “wetting out” like most products on the market today. Because PTFE is very hydrophobic; NanoGLIDE® will conquer wicking, wetting out and moisture management; at maximum speed. Fabrics with NanoGLIDE® will allow heat/moisture generated by the body to escape through; or on the fabric into the surrounding atmosphere. Nothing dries faster.
Heat Management is the ability of a fabric to allow the skin surface to cool; but to also address heat caused by static and kinetic friction. PTFE's coefficient of FRICTION is 0.1 or less, which is the second lowest of any known solid material known to man kind; eliminating Static and Kinetic friction; thus allowing the skin surface to stay cool by eliminating friction and abrasion on the skins surface. NanoGLIDE® will yield a cooler product on the skins surface by eliminating abrasion and friction.
PTFE's coefficient of FRICTION is 0.1 or less, which is the second lowest of any known solid material known to man kind; meaning our products offer maximum abrasion control; and eliminates friction.
The friction or rubbing of any apparel or sock on the skin; produces heat. Friction causes heat. Heat produces sweat. NanoGLIDE® when tested in the labs using accepted testing methodologies for measuring abrasion and friction demonstrated a 2-3x increase in reducing static and kinetic friction; over standard POY fabrics. That equates to a 200-300% improvement for any apparel or sock made with NanoGLIDE®.
