Antimicrobial Additives for Textiles and Fabrics
BioCote® antimicrobial additives for textiles and fabrics are easily and cost effectively applied to textiles at any stage of the production process, making the material resistant to bacteria, mould and viruses.
Without affecting the inherent characteristics of the fibre, our antimicrobial additives provide lasting and effective protection against both harmful and odour-causing microbes and can be used in any fibre manufacturing process, including PE (Polypropylene), PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) and PA (Nylon).
Inhibiting the growth of microbes by up to 99.99%, our antimicrobial additives can also be applied as a topical or finishing treatment to any textile to make it more hygienic and reduce the potential for staining and bad odours. Fabrics protected with BioCote® antimicrobial technology stay fresher for longer and will maintain their performance wash after wash.
High quality BioCote® actives at low addition rates means you will benefit from superior antimicrobial performance against a wide variety of microbes and have a differentiated textile product that won’t break the bank.
BioCote® antimicrobial additives are ideal for use in a range of textile products, such as sportswear, non-wovens, bedding, technical fabrics and workwear.
