An antimicrobial and anti-odour treatment for textiles, freshfibres is available as either a pre-treated yarn or a post treatment for padding or exhausting onto existing material.
While a wash-in additive will very often provide more than satisfactory performance, some applications inevitably demand a little more. For such products, freshfibres yarn is the perfect solution.
A silver-based additive is extruded into the filaments, ensuring even dispersal; the resultant antimicrobial properties remain unaffected by repeated laundering or wear and tear.
Freshfibres post-treatments are often a more convenient and economical means of providing excellent antimicrobial & anti-odour properties, particularly for those applications where laundering is less frequent.
Suitable for a huge range of applications, from clothing and bed linen, to upholstery, carpet fibres, towels and water filters – all of which offer ideal conditions for bacteria, fungi and mould to multiply. freshfibres® yarns continuously and effectively combat this microbial growth, which leads to cross contamination, unsightly staining and unpleasant odours.
Bed linen containing a freshfibres® yarn will benefit from protection against infection-causing bacteria such as MRSA and E.Coli – crucial in hygiene critical settings such as hospitals and care homes. Workwear and sports apparel woven with a freshfibres® yarn will continuously guard against unpleasant odours and staining, offering long-term endurance when subject to tough conditions.
