NanoHorizons Inc, a leader in the creation of nanoscale performance additives for the textile and medical industries, has been acknowledged by Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) as producing an effective antimicrobial for wool and other natural fibers.

After extensive testing, it has been determined that NanoHorizons' SmartSilver Certified Antimicrobial Performance permanently guards wool fabrics against microbes that cause odor.

“We are proud that Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has noted SmartSilver as one of the best choices for protecting wool fabrics,” says Dr. James Delattre, VP Global Marketing at NanoHorizons Inc. “Our nanoscale silver antimicrobial products are engineered to integrate seamlessly into the manufacturing process resulting in beautiful, natural wool fabrics that are permanently free from odor.”

The nanotechnology behind SmartSilver protection allows it to bond permanently to fibers so it never wears off or washes out and lasts the life of the fabric. The nanoscale size also permits SmartSilver protection to work invisibly without compromising other performance attributes for Merino wool such as total easy care, softeners, fire retardants, moisture management and UV protection.

NanoHorizons' products are EPA registered and manufactured in an environmentally responsible manner.

Edwin Nazario, Senior Vice President of the America's for AWI said, “SmartSilver Certified Antimicrobial Performance is a valuable and welcome innovation for wool fabrics. Now consumers can have the beauty and natural performance features Merino wool provides along with permanent protection from odor. SmartSilver provides new options for apparel and footwear designers, especially those in the active and outdoor markets where consumers strongly value odor resistance.”
