CottonX™

SMART FIBER. IN COTTON

CottonX™ is Argaman’s flagship technology. It is a one-of-a-kind platform that allows us to embed cotton fibers with various compounds, turning them into active smart fibers without losing the natural attributes of cotton.

HOW IT'S DONE

Cotton spinning is an intricate traditional process. CottonX™ patented technology was designed as an innovative form of cotton fiber treatment that seamlessly integrates with the standard process of cotton spinning. It’s a novel and unique industrial method for the impregnation of cotton fibers with different particles. We blast particles into fibers using the energy of sound waves. Cavitated bubbles collapse,creating powerful shockwaves. These shockwaves accelerate the particles to high speeds, causing them to embed in the fiber like an arrow shot into a tree so they are permanently attached and do not abrade or wash out. This single-step innovative process results in 100% durable CottonX™ fiber which can be easily integrated in standard textile manufacturing.

CottonX™ CUSTOMIZED

Argaman supports its customers in developing customized compounds to be used in the CottonX™ platform technology enabling endless possibilities for new attributes to be infused in cotton.
We are a closed-loop manufacturing facility, our water, and our chemistry are completely recycled.

CottonX™ SKINCARE

A smart fiber, fusing 100% natural cotton with copper oxide to provide the ultimate in skin care and protection.

WHY COTTON?

Cotton is the most popular natural fiber used worldwide. It is environmentally-friendly, biodegradable and, most important, good for your skin. Cotton has always been the fiber of choice due to its comfort, breathability and softness. Cotton’s hypoallergenic qualities make it the ideal fiber for users with sensitive skin, and perfect for use in hygiene products. Nature has endowed cotton with a superior ability to both absorb and release revitalizing compounds. This makes it the optimal fiber for applying skin-enhancing technologies.

WHY COPPER?

Copper is an essential element of life. It is a powerful anti-bacterial and deodorizing agent and has a role in conditioning and maintaining healthy appearance of the skin. Copper can be found in super-foods such as almonds and avocado. Research has shown that copper is key in several processes of skin formation and regeneration. When using copper-infused textiles, positive cosmetic effects are noted, such as significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and improvement in general appearance, all within several weeks of use. Using copper oxide compound we are applying the purest and the most natural form of copper. It is non-soluble in water and does not contaminate the environment.
Our technology is EPA approved.
