HeiQ AGS-20 TF & HeiQ AGS-20 MB now Oeko-Tex listed

HeiQ Materials AG, the leader and inventor of silver composite additives and high performance sustainable textile finishes, has been granted Oeko-Tex Standard 100 listing as approved active chemical for its products HeiQ AGS-20 TF and HeiQ AGS-20 MB.

For a textile product to be labelled with an Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate, all ingredient products and treatments have to go through extensive tests and then be proven by Oeko-Tex as safe to humans and the environment.

The HeiQ AGS-20 TF and the HeiQ AGS-20 MB products now Oeko-Tex listed, allow textiles to become naturally odor-free by preventing unpleasant smell development, commonly a problem in sports training as well as tough climate conditions.

“The Oeko-Tex 100 is a benchmark textile standard serving an important role in determining the eco-friendliness and safety of a product.

The Oeko-Tex approval further confirms studies already conducted by leading institutes on the eco-compatibility and human friendliness of the HeiQ silver based products”, says CEO Carlo Centonze.

HeiQ provides highly sustainable products for textiles through its innovative and unique silver composite technology requiring a minimum of silver to achieve higher and more durable performance.

The HeiQ AGS-20 TF and HeiQ AGS-20 MB products are breakthrough textile products for all garment types that allow users to be as active as wanted and still feel and smell fresh.

Due to HeiQ's unique technique of treating textiles with its silver as a topical treatment or fiber integration, the odor-free effect can remain for the lifetime of the garment.
