freshfibres is 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® continuously and effectively combats this microbial growth, which leads to cross contamination, unsightly staining and unpleasant odours.
Bed linen containing freshfibres® 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.
freshfibres® 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 and regular laundering.
Freshfibres post-treatments & wash-in additives are a convenient and economical means of providing excellent antimicrobial & anti-odour properties, particularly for those applications where laundering is less frequent.
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.
