Antimicrobial Textile Additives
Antimicrobial textile coating is an advanced controlled release antimicrobial treatment for textiles. IAntimicrobial textile coating is an advanced controlled release antimicrobial treatment for textiles. It keeps garments, footwear, and home textiles cleaner, fresher, and free of unpleasant odors.
What are the Benefits of Antimicrobial for Textiles?
Agivera© has been developed with extensive consideration for product performance and environmental impacts.
Odors on textiles and footwear are often the result of bacteria. With Agivera©, the growth of odor-causing bacteria is prohibited, and garments stay fresher longer.
Because Agivera© application to most textile materials can occur during standard processing, brand owners can quickly and seamlessly have Agivera© integrated into various products.
Fabrics are Uncompromised
After application, the presence of Agivera© cannot be detected by the consumer and has no impact on hand or shade. This means treated products can be odor free and retain their original feel.
Fabrics treated with Agivera© can be machine washed and dried without worrying about performance loss.
