For uniform manufacturers looking to distinguish themselves and deliver a competitive advantage to their customers,Agion Technologies now offers Agion Active, thefirst and only dual action textile treatment that effectively eliminates odor in and around garments.

Agion Active combines naturally-occurring silver-ion based antimicrobial protection with a mineral-based technology that absorbs odors like a vacuum, sucking stink out of the garment itself as well as the area surrounding it. Manufacturers that have already incorporated style and comfort benefits through design and material innovations can now offer a new differentiating sensory benefit by using Agion Active anti-odor technology, an innovation that has step-improvement value for the end-client's brand.

By incorporating Agion Active into the manufacturing process, uniform and work wear manufacturers have a new advantage that can help them maintain existing partnerships and capture new uniform accounts.

Now, odor prevention can be positioned alongside style, design and functionality features that separate manufacturers and enable them to help their clients provide ideal brand experiences through uniforms and career apparel. With this next generation odor elimination technology, companies purchasing uniforms and career apparel can confidently add another positive dimension to the brand experience intended for their customers.

“Nobody wants to stink on the job. Whether you are a fast food server, a police officer, the member of a premier hotel staff or a cruise line employee, uniforms not only identify people as representatives of their employer's company, but they contribute to overall brand image and experience,” said Cyndy Hunter, director of marketing for Agion Technologies. “Agion Active provides a clear enhancement and frankly, a leap forward in an area that is not usually controllable by an employer – staff odor.”

Unlike some anti-odor technologies that are built into the fibers of fabric, Agion Active is incorporated into the finishing step of the manufacturing process.

This gives manufacturers of work wear and uniforms greater flexibility and reduces costs by enabling them to easily shift from one style to another without creating large, expensive inventories. Agion Active's patented technology keeps white fabrics white during manufacturing without discoloration – an impossible feat with other silver-based antimicrobials, and an important benefit for white uniforms worn by many in the medical and restaurant industries.

Agion Active is ideal for use in uniforms and career wear across a variety of industry categories, including: travel and hospitality; restaurant and food service; healthcare and medical; entertainment; and military and law enforcement.
