Recently, according to a report from Japantoday, Japanese electronic parts manufacturer Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and textile manufacturer Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd. have jointly developed PIECLEX fiber. It is understood that clothes, masks and other products made of this fiber will expand and contract during the exercise, and the trace amount of electrical energy generated can kill bacteria and viruses on the fiber.
The developer said that the wearer will not feel the strength of the low voltage, but a small amount of electrical energy can effectively prevent bacteria and viruses from multiplying inside the fiber. A spokesperson for Murata said that the fiber has been tested to be effective against 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, and that it can inhibit the propagation and even inactivation of bacterial viruses, and said it will test whether the fiber will fight the COVID-19 in the future.
