Partnership for sustainable microbe and odor-resistant textiles
Agion Antimicrobial is designed with smart-release technology. It delivers long-lasting protection by releasing its active antimicrobial agents only when needed. It can be built-in or applied via padding, exhaust or package yarn to any textile alongside other functional finishes and is durable up to 100 home washes.
Lava XL is a next-generation non-bioactive odor-control solution, ideal for sportwear and athleisure wear. The triple action technology utilizes zeolite minerals with a large surface area to capture, absorb and degrade odors as they pass through the fabric.
Agion Active XL combines the advanced dual technologies of Agion Antimicrobial and Lava XL to deliver very good odor protection. The antimicrobial fights odor-causing bacteria on the garment, while the odor-control solution captures odor generated by sweat on the skin.
The Sciessent solutions are easily integrated into the finishing process and can be combined with a range of other finishes, including Huntsman Textile Effects’ durable water repellents and comfort systems to cost-effectively produce high-performance textile products that are safe and sustainable.
