Keep your soft furnishings, bedwear,
mattresses and towels
fresher for longer

We sleep on our sheets and mattresses each night, and our bedwear can become havens for bacteria and other germs that create odors and diminish freshness. With SILVERbac fibers as an integral part of your bedwear, you can sleep comfortably knowing that the fabric surrounding you will be fresher for longer.  We spend a lot of time in contact with the soft furnishings in our homes which can lead to the loss of newness and fresh scent.   Furnishings with SILVERbac integrated into their fabric retain their new appeal and pleasant aroma.  Also, the towels we use are designed to absorb moisture, and are perfect homes for harmful bacteria. SILVERbac fibers ensure that they can’t proliferate, keeping your towels germ-free for longer, and saving on washing.

HOME TEXTILE APPLICATIONS

SILVERbac is a premium antimicrobial and odor fighter for all home textiles and is designed to be the easiest solution for our manufacturing partners. SILVERbac provides the confidence that global brands require for their products and allows consumers to support a greener world.

Sustainability

Home textiles 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

Durable

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

Textiles 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

Good Partner

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

Traceable

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 identified as a SILVERbac-treated textile – 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
