Patented Polymer Technology

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 & readily water-dilutable, forming phase stable & solids-free finishing bath solutions for easy & 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.


And Unsurpassed Odor Protection 

SILVADUR: 3 Modes of Action to Control Odors:

  1. Odor Absorption Control: Blocks select odorants via absorption
  2. Antimicrobial Odor Control: Uses low levels of silver
  3. Controls Metabolic Enzymes: Silver ion polymer targets enzymes, preventing production of malodors
