NanoHorizons Inc., a leader in the creation of nanoscale performance additives for textile, health care, and industrial applications, has announced that the company has entered into an agreement with Widetech Ltd. of Taipei, Taiwan, under which Widetech will distribute the SmartSilver antimicrobial performance brand to the Taiwan textile industry. Widetech is a recognized and trusted textile chemical importer and provider in the Taiwanese market.

SmartSilver antimicrobial additives are engineered using a patented process to integrate silver nanoparticles at the molecular level, providing permanent, safe, and cost effective protection against bacteria associated with odors, infection and material degradation in a variety of products, including natural and synthetic fibers and fabrics. SmartSilver additives are approved by Oeko-Tex as free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances believed to be hazardous to human health. The additives are also US EPA registered.

“SmartSilver additives require no compromises in the manufacturing process or in the final product's performance,” says Jeffrey Chen, president of Widetech. “SmartSilver is integration-ready. It won't inhibit other performance additives or impact the finished fabric's texture or appearance. SmartSilver is economical for a wide range of textile applications, an important benefit for Taiwan's export dependent textile market. SmartSilver's unmatched performance and life-of-garment durability make it a highly marketable product in the sportswear market and other textile industries where anti-odor fabrics are desirable.”

“We are pleased that Widetech has become an important partner in expanding our market in Taiwan,” says Mr. Timothy Skedzuhn, VP Textile Business Unit, NanoHorizons Inc. “Widetech has a successful track record in the advanced chemical additive business, drawing on global sourcing as well as its own formulations to meet its customers' demanding technical requirements. We believe that SmartSilver's unique combination of benefits will make it a strong addition to the Widetech product portfolio.”

Widetech is a leading provider of chemical additives for textile dye and finishing with special expertise in the dyeing process. The company is a regarded as a highly reliable source of materials that meet the specific needs of Taiwan's textile industry.
