Reduce bacterial odors in textiles
Clothing and textile materials can not only be carriers of micro-organisms but also are good media for the growth of micro-organisms. When microbes grow to high numbers in clothing and textiles, they can cause unwanted odor.
LIFE offers technology that can be durably incorporated into synthetic fibers during fiber extrusion to eliminate unwanted odors for the life of the garments and textiles made from the treated fibers.
LIFE has also developed antimicrobial textile treatments that durably bind effective antimicrobial ingredients to textiles and leather. The treatments, which lasts through frequent launderings, are applied during the dyeing or finishing of textiles, and during the tanning process for leather.
