Some are harmful and cause infection and disease, others are simply irritants that cause unpleasant odors when our perspiration settles into our clothing.
Many antimicrobial treatments have been created to reduce the health risks posed by microorganisms, unfortunately most have limitations. Some are not durable, others have restrictions related to color applications, temperature exposure and how they are applied.
Unlike many existing technologies, SILVERbac is inherent, easy to incorporate across a wide range of materials, eco-friendly, and effective for the life of the product.
Silver has been used for millennia to reduce the effects of harmful pathogens - Alexander the Great transported water in silver vessels to keep it fresh.
Pure silver ionizes in the presence of moisture and oxygen. The silver ions are then attracted to the opposite charge of the microbes.
Silver ions impact the respiratory and reproduction processes of microbes. These multiple assaults on individual microbes reduce the colony growth rate and
eliminates the bacteria buildup on products.
SILVERbac is encapsulated within the base polymer of the raw material. Unlike coatings, the silver content is evenly dispersed throughout the material.
SILVERbac can’t be washed away during laundering, exposure to extreme elements and doesn’t impact the look or feel of the product over time.
