Agion & Sitip partner to deliver scent control knitwear
May '12
From the halls of Performance Days, Sciessent, makers of the Agion Active and Agion Lava brands of odor elimination technology, announces its partnership with Sitip S.p.A., textile leader in specialized warp knits headquartered in Italy, to offer scent control finishes on fabrics that will target performance knit, swimwear and intimate apparel brands. To experience Sitip's new Point and Ritmo fabrics with Agion Active and Agion Lava during the show, visit Sciessent stand 216, or Sitip stand 208.

Agion Active represents the next generation of odor control for textiles and apparel. Agion Active is a dual technology applied to textiles as a fabric finish creating apparel with superior odor control.

Designed to fit into the most demanding applications and environments – from performance and athletic apparel to intimates and swimwear, Agion Active controls odor to deliver unparalleled, long lasting freshness.

Agion Lava is the latest and most environmentally friendly technology offered to the textile and apparel market. Based on minerals, the finish adsorbs vapor based odors that surround garments – and regenerates with each wash/dry cycle so it's always ready to perform. The Agion Lava technology is part of the Agion Active finishing system or is available alone as a finish.

“At Sitip, we strive to offer new technologies in order to provide brands with an evolving line of differentiated, performance fabrics,” said Sergio Alibrandi, executive marketing manager of Sitip.

“When we experienced the stringent performance of Agion Lava odor management finish, as the latest and most environmental friendly technology, we were sure that we were offering our customers a superior solution that sets a new standard for performance features.”

“We are proud to forge new paths in our partnership with Sitip as we enter the swimwear and intimate apparel markets,” said Paul Ford, chief executive officer of Sciessent. “As demand grows for effective odor management, we are glad to be at the forefront of creating a solution that delivers true value to the consumer.”

Sciessent's Agion and Agion Active brands are based on naturally occurring elements and have been incorporated into a wide range of consumer, industrial and healthcare products, including cell phones, shoes, keyboards, water filters, medical catheters and ice machines.

Sitip, located in Bergamo, Italy is a forward thinking manufacturer of high quality circular fabrics, synthetic fabrics, and elastic warp-knit fabrics.
