FAQs

Answers to some of the most common questions about SILVERbac.

  • How does it work?

    Silver ions are active against bacteria in a number of ways, meaning resistance does not occur.

  • How is it applied?

    Silver is encapsulated directly into the polymer at the point of manufacture, so it isn’t visible and does not leach out. It’s an inherent feature of the final product and is effective for life.

  • What lab testing has been done?

    Tests have been carried out through independent labs certified by the International Antimicrobial Council. SILVERbac protects against pathogens such as E.coli and MRSA, thereby reducing sweat-based odours.

  • What durability and commercial testing has been done?

    SILVERbac has been tested to 400 washes and has proven to remain effective, even at temperatures in excess of 60°C.

  • Where can SILVERbac be used?

    Healthcare textiles, fashion and sportswear, denim, home and hospitality textiles, pet products, food storage and medical devices.

  • Are there any application limitations?

    No. None at all. Dyeing, finishing, printing, washing using bleach detergents – whatever your needs, SILVERbac remains effective.

  • Is SILVERbac safe for the environment and for human contact?

    SILVERbac is NOT nanotechnology, and does not leach.
