Ag+Tech Anti-bacterial Fabrics

Ag+Tech fabric technology creates an invisible shield on fabric that helps people keeping away from bacteria throughout the day.

 

The mechanism of action involves the release of silver ions from its inorganic cage matrix through an ion-exchange process. The silver ions can then interact with microbes to disrupt their cellular functions, thereby inhibiting the growth of microbial colonies.

 



The active ingredient in Ag+Tech fabric is a durable, non-migratory silver based antimicrobial additive pre-spun into the fiber. This additive has been proven to be highly effective in the laboratory against a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, and algae. Testing undertaken by Intertek with reference to AATCC 100 standard has also demonstrated that Ag+Tech antimicrobial fabric when in contact with bacteria can instantly reduce 99.9% of Staphylococcus aureus and 99.9% of Klebsiella pneumonia respectively after 24 hours, a significant reduction and a very credible evidence of their effective anti-bacterial property.
