…and proven very effective in inhibiting bacterial and fungal growth on hospital fabrics for wound care and common fabrics such as operating theatre gowns, bedding linens, curtains etc. This antimicrobial technology will not leach out chemicals or nano-particles onto the skin, allowing you to enjoy the highest level of personal protection without any chemical side effects.

…leaving no room for bacteria cells to mutate or develop anti-biotic resistance. The unique chemical property of the antimicrobial protection layer physically destroys bacteria cells instantly upon contact with the fabric (like a pin puncturing a balloon). This antimicrobial layer is not depleted during the process and will be ready for the next kill. Thus even superbugs will be destroyed in this same way.

…which is remarkably longer than other technologies.  Due to the strong ionic bonding nature of the active antimicrobe layer on the fibre of natural and synthetic fabrics, the antimicrobe layer is effective in minimizing bio-contamination on the fabric even after repeated washes. Even so, its colourless, odourless, and softening effect on the fabrics make them a pleasant and comfortable wear on all fabrics.

Its antimicrobial technology is ecologically safe because it does not contain heavy metals, bleed harmful toxins, and is also certified biodegradable by the EU standards. In addition, as one’s body odour is being controlled, the technology allows the user to feel comfortable enough to extend the wearing period of the fabric and thereby reduces the amount of water, chemicals and electricity needed to wash these fabrics. As a result this helps reduce water usage and energy consumption in the long run.
