Anti-mite material is made by 5 desirable properties:
- Highly STRUCTURED
- REGULAR Pattern
- LIMITED Mite Penetration
- TIGHTLY WOVEN Microfiber
MITE penetration / colonization was observed in non-tightly woven and non-woven fabric.
woven cover (A; 3100 magnification, scanning electron microscope)
Study Design: A study of 32 covers collected from 9 different countries, to evaluate the effectiveness of mite penetration every day for 1 week under a stereomicroscope.
NO MITE penetration was observed in tightly woven fabric.
|The Number and Total Percentages of Samples showing Mite Penetration|
|Category||No Penetration||Some Penetration|
|2.||Film coated and loosely woven||0||4|
|3.||Acaricade coated and loosely woven||0||1|
|5.||Film coated and nonwoven||0||2|
|6.||Acaricade coated and nonwoven||0||1|
|Totals||15 (53%)||15 (47%)|
|Note: Plastic is pore free but does not allow ventilation.|
Publications to proven Tighly Woven is the most effective anti-mite materials,
