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:
- 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.
