NANO AGENT AGTIVE MATERIAL - Special polypropylene/polyester yarn knitwear treated with a permanent antibacterial antiviral additive based on silver ions. It is effective against the growth of bacteria and viruses and unpleasant smell for hygienic freshness. It is harmless for humans and the environment.
PROLEN® SILTEX is a special polypropylene yarn treated with a permanent antimicrobial additive based on silver ions.
PROLEN® SILTEX is effective against the growth of bacteria and reduces the activity of viruses, thus helping to reduce unpleasant odors and maintain hygienic freshness.
The antibacterial effect of silver has been known for many centuries. Silver ions prevent the growth of bacteria, reduce unpleasant odors, maintain the biological balance of the skin and give the product hygienic freshness during sports and leisure activities. Due to the fact that the bacteriostatic agent is applied to the yarn core and not to its surface, it does not migrate from the fabric and remains in it permanently even after repeated washing. In addition to antibacterial activity, Prolen® Siltex has high antiviral activity.
PROLEN® SILTEX was created for underwear, sportswear, workwear, socks, footwear, bedding, linings and upholstery for protection in environments that require high hygienic standards.

TREVIRA BIOACTIVE ANTIMICROBIAL BRAND
Trevira Bioactive forms the basis for substances with permanently bioactive properties. These properties prevent the growth of bacteria in or on the fiber and thus improve hygiene.
It contains an active substance with permanent antimicrobial effects
Inhibits the growth of bacteria in and on the fiber
Proven to have no effect on skin flora
Tested for body compatibility
Increases and improves cleanliness
It adds a feeling of freshness
Inhibits microbial odor development in textiles
Properties of Trevira fabrics: they are elastic, durable, breathable or heat-regulating and antimicrobial functions are created using Trevira bioactive fibers. Trevira Bioactive fabrics made from these fibers contain built-in protection against microorganisms. Trevira biotic fibers protect fabrics by minimizing bacterial growth in and on the fabric.
Unlike products that are post-production or finished with substances that are likely to migrate into the environment, Trevira Bioactive has an antimicrobial that is firmly integrated into the fibrous polymer. This additive has a lasting antimicrobial effect.
Tested for safety
Comprehensive tests performed by independent external laboratories have shown that Trevira bioactive fibers have an antimicrobial effect, indicating that the bioactive component prevents the exponential growth of bacterial populations on the fiber surface. In an extensive long-term study, the Hohenstein Institute also showed that Trevira bioactive fabrics are gentle on the skin. The antimicrobial effect is limited to the fiber surface, as evidenced by tests performed on skin compatibility and cytotoxicity, where damage to skin cells, skin flora or other indicators has not been demonstrated. And as a textile, Trevira Bioactive naturally also offers all the benefits of proven Trevira fibers.
