Agion, a leader in naturally occurring silver-based antimicrobial solutions, has earned the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 approval for its antimicrobial textile technology. Agion's textile solutions have been assessed by Oeko-Tex and have been successfully approved for the use to process Oeko-Tex certified articles.

They are now mentioned in their list of accepted active chemical products with biological activity as found on their website. The rigorous testing methods required by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 proved that Agion's textile technology delivers the utmost in consumer safety by adhering to strict protocols for responsible manufacturing.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is an international testing and certification system that evaluates textiles to ensure that they are free from harmful levels of more than 100 dangerous substances.The testing criteria methods are standardized internationally, and are widely included as guidance in the terms and conditions for purchasing, delivering and selling textiles. Because of its highly reputable testing methods, the Oeko-Tex label is an internationally recognized benchmark for consumers and also serves as a quality assurance tool for manufacturers.

“We are proud to have met the standards of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100,” said Paul Ford, chief executive officer for Agion Technologies. “The listing reaffirms that our manufacturing partners and consumers alike can feel confident knowing Agion antimicrobial textile technology combines efficacy with safety and responsible production.”

Agion's silver based antimicrobial textile technology operates at the surface of textiles to naturally and continuously resist and eliminate the growth of destructive bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi. Agion's technology is naturally occurring, chemical-free and non-leaching, formulated to be effective for the life of treated textiles.
