Why does the world need SILVERbac?
Our world is full of harmful bacteria. These bacteria cause infection resulting in significant levels of disease.
Even simple sweat carries bacteria, which turns into unpleasant and potentially embarrassing odours.
While bacteria can be washed away, and disinfected from our skin, these microorganisms cling onto the various materials and surfaces around us where they multiply and spread.
Various antimicrobial treatments have been created to combat health risks posed by microorganisms.
Unfortunately, these technologies can have limited effects. Some will wash out, causing a reduction in the antibacterial effect of the material. Some may impact the colour or hand-feel of a material. Others may simply not do what they claim.
Unlike many existing technologies, SILVERbac is inherent, eco-friendly, and effective for the life of the product.

Silver has been used for millennia to reduce the effects of harmful pathogens – Alexander the Great transported water in silver vessels to keep it fresh.
Pure silver ionises in contact with water and oxygen. These silver ions are then attracted to the charge on microbes.
Silver acts by affecting the respiratory and reproduction processes of microbes. These multiple assaults result in the reduction of microbes on surfaces and products alike.
SILVERbac is encapsulated within the base polymer of the raw material, so it will continue to be effective for the useful life of the end product.
The encapsulation process also means SILVERbac won’t be washed away during laundering, and doesn’t affect the look or feel of the product.
