Based on a unique technology, PURE by HeiQ is a high performance silver antimicrobial which harnesses the power of silver to effectively achieve the highest odor reduction efficiency with minimal dosing. This superior technology is applicable at the finishing stage by padding (HeiQ PURE TF) on all fibers and fabric types, except wool.
PURE by HeiQ achieves the perfect balance of highest durability and most-effective performance while using the lowest amount of active components. In short, it provides the optimal price to performance ratio of any solution on the market. The technology is engineered with a silver microcomposite which brings long-term protection and freshness to the textile for more than 100 home launderings. This antimicrobial textile effect makes it possible to keep garments odor-free by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria; a desired consumer benefit in socks, activewear, workwear and many other end-use markets.
Proven in use to be equally consistent in combating against discoloration tendencies, PURE by HeiQ does not require high-temperature curing and has no negative influence on hydrophilicity, handle or breathability.
Its excellent compatibility with fluorochemical finishes and moisture management agents also means that PURE by HeiQ can also be applied to nearly any textile or nonwoven substrate, making it ideal for home textiles including sheets and towels, technical and medical textiles and a wide variety of garments including socks, underwear, knitwear and sportswear.
Commented Mr Rohit Aggarwal, Global Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Planning at Huntsman Textile Effects, “We are very pleased to work with HeiQ and in pooling our extensive knowledge and skills to develop cutting-edge technologies that meet the practical needs of our customers.
