Athletes demand more from their training gear / apparel. We expect that our clothing will perform the way it was designed to and look and smell fresh in all settings. We don’t think about the hidden enemy that lurks on our skin and finds a permanent home in our clothing: bacteria. At the most inconvenient times, bacteria attacks our perspiration and breaks it down into compounds that leave unpleasant odors on our bodies and in our clothes.
SILVERbac was designed to combat and eliminate those uncomfortable moments at home, work, or in the gym using the best antimicrobial in the world – pure natural silver. Silver ions are embedded into polymers and fibres – rather than sprayed or dyed – for an antimicrobial solution that never leaches out or fails to go the distance.
Powered by ions, SILVERbac makes the toughest gear for the most demanding competitors.
SILVERbac is a premium antimicrobial and odor fighter for all types of apparel and is designed to be the easiest solution for our manufacturing partners. SILVERbac provides the confidence that global brands require for their products and allow consumers to support a greener world.
Clothing can be washed at lower temperatures and less frequently. Reductions of energy, water, chemicals and greenhouse gas emissions in homes and laundries around the world mean a smaller environmental footprint. Less frequent washing also reduces the amount of microplastics being released into our water supply
SILVERbac does not leach and will not wash out over the life of the product. Chemicals, heat and extreme environments do not reduce the level of effectiveness or break it down
No Colour Limitations
Fabric containing SILVERbac can be dyed with normal processing without fear of striping, discoloration or barre. SILVERbac is invisible to the eye and has no impact on the feel of the fabric
We provide a master batch to permanently embed pure silver into almost any synthetic fiber during the extrusion process. SILVERbac fibers can be combined with any other fiber during the yarn spinning process
We provide a unique level of security unavailable in any other antimicrobial technology on the market today. With a small, handheld indicator, any item can be quickly be identified as a SILVERbac garment providing confidence in quality assurance as well as brand protection
HOW SILVERbac TECHNOLOGY WORKS
SILVERbac works continuously across a range of environments to reduce bacteria and other harmful microbes. Encapsulated within the base polymer of the raw material and resistant to multiple washes, it will continue to be effective for the lifetime of the garment
Silver ions impact the respiratory and reproductive processes of microbes. These multiple assaults on individual microbes reduce the colony growth rate and eliminate bacteria buildup on surfaces that include SILVERbac
