Antimicrobial fibres

Never compromising on hygiene

Trevira's antimicrobial fibres, whether in the standard or flame retardant option, offer a decisive advantage when it comes to functionality. In contrast to products with a post-production finish (sometimes including substances that migrate into the environment), Trevira's silver-based antimicrobial active substance is firmly anchored in the fibre polymer.

This means that its properties remain effective for the lifetime of the fibre. This is extremely important in health and hygiene contexts where an antimicrobial function might mean the difference between life and death, yet textiles are subject to daily intensive wear and tear. The active substances cannot be washed out and inhibit bacterial growth on the fibre along with the development of microbial-related odours. At the same time, the natural skin flora remain completely unaffected.
