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 produced by polymeric material extrusion to eliminate unwanted odors for the life of the garment.
LIFE has also developed antimicrobial textile treatments that durably binds effective antimicrobial ingredients to textiles and leather. The treatment, which last through frequent launderings, are applied during the dyeing or finishing of textiles, and during the tanning process for leather.
LIFE surface finishes for textiles and leather can be applied to all types of fiber constructions and are compatible with most finishing agents, including flame retardant finishes and all resin systems and softeners normally used in textile finishing.
