SmartSilver finishes & additives for textile market

Jan '08
NanoHorizons Inc and Piedmont Chemical Industries Inc (Piedmont), a major supplier to the textile processing industry, have entered into an agreement to provide distinctive SmartSilver antimicrobial/moisture management additives for polyester, cotton, and nylon. The new products, which will be developed jointly, will be marketed by Piedmont and are expected to be available in February 2008.

NanoHorizons will provide its SmartSilver antimicrobial products to Piedmont who will incorporate them into a unique water-based compound that can be applied to polyester, cotton, and nylon fabrics using standard finishing equipment. The new compounds will also impart moisture-management properties to the finished fabrics. Additionally, an additive for synthetic fiber extrusion will also be jointly developed.

No other products like these are currently available to the textile market. Unlike other antimicrobial options available today, SmartSilver will not inhibit the finished fabric's wicking properties so that the Piedmont formulations will deliver permanent anti-odor benefits with fully functional moisture-management performance.

“We are very pleased to partner with Piedmont,” says Dr. Dan Hayes, NanoHorizon's Director of Operations. “Their proven excellence in textile chemistry will ensure that the SmartSilver performance benefits are maximized. Plus, their world wide sales organization will guarantee that the global textile market has full access to these remarkable new products.”
