Q: What is "Anti-bacterial ability"?
And, what is the relationship between "Anti-bacterial ability"and"Deodorant effect"?

A: "Anti-bacterial ability" is the ability to prevent bacteria from propagating. The bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus on the surface of the skin decompose the sweat components (urea, fatty acids, etc.) and aged skin surface (keratin), and then they change them to odor components. If the propagation of bacteria is prevented, the odor components will be less consequently.
According to a public-service corporation "Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council", only the textile products which comply with the standards "Anti-bacterial fiber product certification criteria" are allowed to be called "Anti-bacterial products", which can prevent staphylococcus aureus from propagating below the predetermined level.

It is possible to study the feasibility of applying Deodorizing material to your products from a view point of price by using the following cost simulation. (It is necessary to separately study its feasibility from a technical view point.)

[Cost Simulation]
   (Step 1) Calculate the whole cost of your existing product and the cost of the parts to be replaced
                    by Deodorizing material.
   (Step 2) Calculate the whole cost of your new product after replacing the existing parts
                   by Deodorizing material.
   (Step 3) Set up the sale price of your new product based on the new cost.
   (Step 4) Check if the sale price can be accepted by the market or not, considering the added value
                   of gDeodorant effecth.

[Examples of Cost Simulation]
   (Case 1) The cost rate of the parts to be replaced: 10%
                     Deodorizing material cost: 10 times higher
                     The whole cost = 0.9 +0.1 x 10 =1.90. -> Increased by 90% from existing product.
   (Case 2) The cost rate of the parts to be replaced: 10%
                     Deodorizing material cost: 2 times higher
                     The whole cost = 0.9 +0.1 x 2 =1.10. -> Increased by 10% from existing product.

1-4. Applications to Clothes
1-4-1 Q: I found the under shirts and T-shirts which are applied Deodorizing thread in some internet shops. Ifm very interested in how to use the threads for those shirts.

A: There exist a couple of ways to use Deodorizing thread for clothes;
  (1) Deodorizing fabric, that is, the fabric which is woven of Deodorizing thread is used wholly.
  (2) Deodorizing fabric is used partially for the part of the armpit, where sweat odors smell strongly.
  (3) Deodorizing thread is used wholly as a sewing thread.
        
(*) It is said that 150 meters of rayon thread with gDeodorant abilityh are used for a T-shirt.
  (4) Deodorizing thread is used partially for the part of the armpit, where sweat odors
           smell strongly.
      
  (*) It is said that 50 meters of polyester thread with "Deodorant ability" are used for each armpit of  a T-shirt.

1-4-2 Q: I guess it might be effective that Deodorizing fabric is used for the collar padding of business shirts. Is it correct?
A: Yes, it is. The neck is one of the spots where a human perspires profusely. It can be expected to deodorize the sweat odors around the neck.
1-4-3 Q: I've read many testimonials about the socks with Deodorant ability in some internet shops. How does it work?

A: It is said that the sole of the foot is one of the spots where a human perspires the most. The humidity inside of a shoe becomes higher due to airtight space, which makes bacteria propagated easily. The more bacteria increase, the more sweat odors are produced. Considering this condition, Deodorizing fabric seems to be used for the parts touched the sole, tiptoe and heel.
In addition to the fabric with Deodorant ability, if the fabric with Anti-bacterial ability is used, it will be possible to deodorize sweat odors effectively.

1-4-4 Q: I've heard of the shirts attached clothing labels with Deodorant ability before. Is it true?
A: Yes, it is. A couple of large apparel manufacturers in Japan are applying Okumura clothing label with Deodorant ability to their products.
1-4-5 DeodoranInterface Can wearing the clothes using Deodorizing fabric make body odors deodorized?
A: Yes, it can.
The fabric woven of Deodorizing thread such as Okumura "DeodoranThread Premium" can be applied to lining, padding or cloth of jackets, coats, trousers and skirts. As those clothes cover the body, it can deodorize the sweat odors effectively.

For your information, Okumura also supplies an Interlining cloth "DeodoranInterface" which is woven of "DeodoranThread". If you are interested in it, please send your inquiry to EmmaCreation.   info@emmacreation.com
1-4-6 Q: I have strong body odor from the armpit. Can I deodorize it by wearing the clothes with Deodorant ability?
A: Yes, you can. As the body odor from the armpit is sweat odor, the jacket, shirt or blouse using Okumura "DeodoranThread" can deodorize it even if it is strong odor. If you wear the clothes using Okumura "DeodoranThread Premium", Deodorant effect will increase more due to its Anti-bacterial ability.
1-4-7 Q: What is the difference in deodorization between an underarm deodorant and Deodorizing thread?

A: An underarm deodorant is a substance that is put on the skin of the armpit to stop perspiring from sweat glands. That is, the production of sweat odors can be prevented by stopping sweating.
On the other hand, Deodorizing thread deodorizes released sweat odors. It does not disturb the physiological activities of a human body.

1-4-8 Q: I hate Tobacco odors stuck to my wear. Can the clothes using Okumura gDeodoranThreadh block Tobacco odors?

A: The major components of Tobacco odor are Ammonia, Acetic acid, Acetaldehyde, Pyridine and Hydrogen sulfide.
Okumura "DeodoranThread" and "DeodoranThread Premium" can deodorize Ammonia & Acetic acid out of the components of Tobacco odor, but cannot deodorize the other components, that is, Acetaldehyde, Pyridine and Hydrogen sulfide. Therefore, you cannot expect the perfect Deodorant effect against Tobacco odors to the clothes using Okumura "DeodoranThread".
As explained in the answer to the question 1-1-4, the odor components which Deodorizing thread can deodorize depend on the chemical characteristic of Deodorizing fiber contained in the thread. You need to find the clothes using Deodorizing thread effective against Tobacco odor components.

1-4-9 Q: I like perfume and use it every day. I'm afraid that the clothes using Okumura "DeodoranThread" deodorize it as well as Sweat odors.

1-4-10 Q: Does Okumura "DeodoranThread" work well for shorts and panties?

Yes, it does, but not perfectly.
The underwear using Okumura "DeodoranThread" deodorizes not only the components of sweat odors but also the same components (Ammonia & Acetic acid) out of the components of the other odors such as urine which originates from the inside of the body. However, it cannot deodorize the other components of them.

1-4-11 Q: Does Okumura "DeodoranThread" work well for brassieres?

A: Yes, it does.
In addition to the common odors caused by the sweat secreted from Eccrine glands & Sebaceous glands, the sweat odors from the breast contain the strong odors caused by the sweat secreted from Apocrine glands around the nipple, which are the same odors as the armpit. The brassieres using Okumura "DeodoranThread" can deodorize such strong odors.

1-5. Applications to Interior Goods, Bed Goods and Miscellaneous Goods
1-5-1 Q: I cannot imagine about how to apply to interior goods easily. Are there any tips?

A: It might be easier to imagine by classifying products as follows;

DeodoranPad
Q: Is it possible to put Okumura "DeodoranThread" into a small bag and to use it as a deodorizer in a refrigerator?

A: Yes, it is, but not perfectly.
The sweat odor of mammals like dogs and cats contains the almost same components as the humanfs sweat odor from the armpit. Although it is a strong odor, Okumura "DeodoranThread" can deodorize it perfectly.

On the other hand, the body of a pet sometimes releases gExcrement odorh.  Its major components are Ammonia, Acetic acid, methanethiol (methyl mercaptan), hydrogen sulfide and Indole.  Okumura "DeodoranThread" deodorizes the same components (Ammonia & Acetic acid) as sweat odor, but other components are left. Thatfs why 100% deodorization of gPet odorsh cannot be expected.
