Unique Delivery System

SILVADUR™ uses a patented polymer technology to deliver silver ions via an “intelligent control” mechanism. When bacteria land on the surface of treated articles, the silver ions neutralize the unwanted organisms, resulting in effective microbe-derived protection. SILVADUR™ binds to bacterial DNA preventing replication, causing changes to the cellular membrane so it can not function properly.

SILVADUR™ antimicrobial technology is particle free and readily water-dilutable, forming phase stable and solids-free finishing bath solutions for easy and rapid processing of fabric when used appropriately. The product is dilutable in textile treatment baths & forms an insoluble interpenetrating polymer network with silver ions when applied to a fabric.
