Bright Shield launches antimicrobial finish safety apparel
Oct '15
Producer of high-visibility ANSI compliant safety apparel, Bright Shield has launched an antimicrobial finish on their safety green performance apparel.

Bright Shield applies antimicrobial and wicking treatments to 100 per cent polyester fleece and tees, thereby making these garments bacteria-free plus managing moisture by wicking it away.

“With these two qualities, Bright Shield is offering real performance apparel,” the company explained in a press release.

The new range is 100 per cent polyester and includes a polyester pullover hood with bonded polar fleece lining, basic 4.5 oz t-shirt, sleeveless shooter t-shirt and a six-panel unconstructed cap.

“Antimicrobial treatments control the growth of unwanted bacteria, thereby eliminating the unpleasant odours they cause,” it added.

“The application of the antimicrobial chemicals kills the bacteria molecules, prevents the odours from forming and keeps the fabric fresher longer,” Bright Shield stated.

According to Bright Shield, the washing instructions on most garments today are for a low temperature wash with no bleach added.

“This presents a condition that may encourage the growth of bacteria and their survival over the lifetime of the garment,” it informed.

“These bacteria micro-organisms cause bio-films on the fibres of the fabric which are difficult to remove, even when washed repeatedly,” the US producer said.

Bright Shield is a safety clothing manufacturer of safety caps, shirts, beanies, and sweatshirts, developed by a management team that recognises the priority of providing high-visibilty safety green clothing. (AR)
