Kodak to make clothes that won't stink
April 8 , 2014
Kodak has been popular worldwide and is currently a printing company. However, it's working on a new project on clothes and its chief tech officer Terry Taber mentioned that silver will be used in a way that clothes won't smell even after being worn for several days.
Silver is known to kill bacteria and germs and "there are stories of people centuries ago taking silver coins and putting them on cuts," he notes.
The company is now a provider of the compound silver sulfate to company PurThread Technologies, which incorporates it into its synthetic fibers in order to avoid bad smells and discoloration caused by sweat. The technique reportedly works since one of the people working on the project wore a shirt for two weeks straight and it "never stunk."
