Why Silver?

Natural Defence. Pure Silver. Pure Protection.

Silver has long been known to possess antimicrobial properties. Textiles are a vector of transmission, providing a hosting surface for bacteria and viruses. This contributes to the risk of cross-contamination and infection. IONIC+™ * silver technology releases silver ions from IONIC+™ fibres which act in several ways to inhibit and eliminate pathogens on the surface of the fabric. Products using IONIC+™ technology inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria, fungi and viruses on textile surface.

The benefits of SilverGuard, powered by IONIC+™ infection prevention silver antimicrobial textiles:

  • Clinically-proven
  • Broad-spectrum antimicrobial
  • Fast acting – reduces 99.9% of pathogens on fabric within a four hour period
  • Long lasting – continuous performance for the life of the product
  • Safe – Not a chemical treatment, not nanotechnology, no bacterial resistance issues, non-toxic

IONIC+™ antimicrobial technology is designed to provide a simple and cost-effective method for employers to deliver a proven antimicrobial management solution for soft surface textile materials.

*Formerly known as X-STATIC®

How does IONIC+ work?



Silver has a long and intriguing history as an antibiotic in human care – it has been developed for use in water purification, wound care (used by Johnson & Johnson), bone prostheses, reconstructive orthopaedic surgery, cardiac devices, catheters and surgical appliances.

IONIC+™ and Coronavirus Viability

With ongoing public health focus on Human Coronavirus, specifically Covid-19, the efficacy of IONIC+™ has started to be tested against a number of strains of Human Coronavirus. Various studies have shown IONIC+™ has strong antiviral and antibacterial effectiveness against a spectrum of pathogens including Human Coronavirus. IONIC+™ silver technology dramatically reduces the viability time of microbes on soft surfaces.
