Abstract

This paper highlights a study to assess the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of face mask made out of bamboo fibers. Bamboo fiber is a cellulosic fibre and is obtained by regenerating cellulose extracted from the bamboo plant. It is 100% eco-friendly. Biodegradable and natural anti-bacterial. This paper highlights a study conducted at SITRA to assess the anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of bandage fabrics made out of bamboo fibres, compared with those made from cotton and rayon. Results indicate the prevalence of indigenous anti-microbial property in bamboo, making it a better suited material for use in medical gauze bandages.
