Dow Microbial Control, a division of Dow Chemical Company said it has joined the Bluesign system, a network of leading companies serving textile and apparel markets around the world.

Chemical manufacturers who are partners in the Bluesign system, which also includes textile and apparel manufacturers and brands, agree to improve performance in five areas of their production processes.

According to a Dow Chemical press release, these production processes include, air emissions, consumer safety, occupational health and safety, resource productivity and water emissions.

Dow Microbial Control introduced Silvadur Antimicrobial, a cutting-edge microbial control product for textiles and apparel, in September 2012.

“Since its introduction, Silvadur has gained widespread recognition in global markets, because it provides reliable, long-lasting freshness in textiles and apparel,” Dow said.

“The Dow Company is dedicated to helping lead the transition to a sustainable society and planet,” said Karel Williams, global strategic marketing associate director for Dow Microbial Control.

“Joining the Bluesign system is an important step to assure textile and apparel manufacturers and brands that products treated with Silvadur do not compromise human health or harm the environment,” she added

The Bluesign system is managed by Swiss-based Bluesign Technologies Ag, which works with the supply chain to ensure that textile and apparel products are safe for consumers, workers and the environment.

Among its roles are to regularly review progress reports from chemical manufacturers who are partners in the system and to conduct on-site audits of their production facilities.

Silvadur’s patented intelligent freshness technology provides reliable odour control in textile and apparel products.

When odour-causing bacteria land on the surface of treated fabrics, they are neutralised on contact by Silvadur’s invisible freshness protection ingredient, so treated fabrics stay fresher longer.

Extensive testing has shown that Silvadur Antimicrobial has a high degree of efficacy against a wide range of undesirable bacteria and is highly durable over 50 washings.

Dow Microbial Control innovates with science and technology to provide long-term viable and sustainable microbial control.

Its comprehensive global offering provides customers with solutions to optimise formulations, including a high performing and technically supported selection of registered actives and products.

With world-class people organisation-wide and a broad portfolio of microbial control technologies, Dow Microbial Control can help solve most of any microbial control problem.

From specialty and highly regulated to non-regulated, the company has the experience and the essentials for more sustainable microbial control protection for products and processes. (AR)
