Natural Silver Anti-bacterial Technology
PureTex is a natural silver antimicrobial system that can offer permanent protection against odour causing bacteria and fabric degradation, keeping the user fresher and healthier and the treated article more hygienic and longer lasting. It is easily applied to a broad range of articles and is totally safe to the user and the environment. It is Oeko-Tex 100 approved.
PureTex is the most advanced 3rd generation silver antimicrobial technology available - it offers unmatched effectiveness, sustainability, durability and flexibility, making it unique in comparison with the many inferior silver salt technologies used today. PureTex is environmentally responsible as fabrics need to be washed less and will last longer. In addition PureTex offers ultimate recyclability - the silver we take from nature, will eventually return to nature.
PureTex is more effective than the competition because of it's structure. Each silica particle contains many smaller silver particles - meaning particles are embedded throughout the whole structure. This combination gives the material immediate antimicrobial activity combined with long-term durability.

PureTex can be applied via a number of application methods including pad, exhaust, spray or foam. A Master Batch option is also available. Depending on each given scenario, the active silver component can either be incorporated within the fibre or attached to the surface during manufacture.
PureTex can be used almost anywhere and on anything that needs to be healthy and hygienic. This would include all types of clothing, bedding, plastics and paints. Fabrics that are subject to rigorous use, especially active and sportswear are ideally suited. It is also the perfect anti-allergenic system for duvets, pillows, mattresses, carpets and curtains.
PureTex is used by leading outdoor, sports, furniture and home textile manufacturers as a natural way to protect their products and give added value benefit to their customers.
