We’ve created and patented a textile material capable of emitting Far Infrared (FIR) that has all the benefits of NASA technology.
A unique project

The Bionox Group is a biotechnology firm that develops smart textiles capable of improving people’s well-being, health and lives. And it’s developed an important technological advance by creating and patenting EKATOM® Fiber.


The science of EKATOM® Fiber is based on physics and biochemistry; a unique bioceramics formula, patented by Bionox, fused into a polyester thread.


EKATOM® Fiber is capable of capturing body heat and converting it into infrared (IR) light. The result is more energy, superior muscle performance, faster recovery, improved thermal regulation and more restful sleep.


EKATOM® Fiber technology can be applied to garments designed for diabetics and also sports, rehabilitation and physiotherapy, as well as equestrian clothing and veterinary products.


The Bionox Group is the only company in the world with EKATOM® Fiber technology.

Our innovation program is constantly developing new materials and applications that are changing the concept of “wear” for a new generation of bioactive clothing.


Thanks to this, we’ll make people stronger, healthier and more alive.
