Anti-microbial fibre to help fight asthma

An intelligent anti-microbial fibre called Amicor promises to protect people from allergens and the diseases caused by these such as asthma.

A statement from the Aditya Birla-owned Thai Acrylic Fibre Co. Ltd. said we spend one-third of our lives in our beds which are always infested with millions of microscopic, invisible dust-mites. Preventing the growth of house dust mites in beds and beddings reduces our exposure to these harmful allergens and hence allergy sensitization can be controlled.

With allergies like asthma on the rise, the Thai Acrylic Fibre Co. Ltd has stressed on using an intelligent anti-microbial fibre to neutralise the problem.

On World Asthma Day on May 5, Siddhartha Chakrabarti, chief research & technology officer of Thai Acrylic Fibre Co. Ltd. explained how dust-mites in an average bed triggers asthma attack over a period of time.

“It is extremely important for all of us to sleep on hygienic, dust-mite free mattresses and beds to prevent allergy symptoms,” Chakrabarti said.

Asthma is of particular concern in China. Arleen Tian, director of Tianye Jacquard Textiles, the leading knitted fabric manufacturer for mattresses & beddings in China said, “Over 35 million people being affected by asthma in China and the numbers increasing, we must have a hygienic and safe sleep solution for a long-term healthy future ahead of all…”

Specifically in view of the growing health and allergy concerns in China, Tianye Jacquard Textiles has introduced their latest collection of Anti-Dust-Mite, Anti-Allergy, Fresh fabric range made with intelligent fiber Amicor (a Birla group company poduct) which is the only tested and proven dual functionality fibre (both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal) which prevents the growth of house dust mites and keeps allergen level under control. This new knitted fabric collection from Tianye Jacquard with Amicor fibres is anti-dust-mite, anti-allergic, anti-odor and gives a long-lasting fresh feel, the statement said. (SH)
