As well as being easy care, comfortable to wear and breathable, there is also a large role for materials that can, to a substantial degree, demonstrably prevent the growth of bacteria.
Trevira Bioactive fibres protect textiles by inhibiting the growth of microbes in or on the fabric. The bacteria disappear and the sense of well-being remains.
In addition, the formation of unpleasant odours is reduced, even when materials are subjected to hard wear. This means that textiles still have a pleasant and fresh smell after use.
With Trevira Bioactive the antimicrobial agent is based on silver and is firmly anchored in the fibre polymer. This additive exercises a permanent antimicrobial effect that is neither affected by frequent washing nor wear. It functions on the surface of the fibre and does not migrate into the surrounding atmosphere. It has been shown that Trevira Bioactive causes no change to the skin flora and is therefore compatible with the skin.
When bacteria come into direct contact with the textile, they are damaged by the silver ions, preventing them from multiplying.
