Dr Terry Yeates
Textile fibres, due to their intrinsic properties, are vulnerable to the attack of harmful micro-organisms. Besides, various chemical processes they undergo, before and after becoming fabrics, also provides room for the growth of microbes.

Damp and warm environment fans the flames of the problem. Infested by microbes these fabrics, when worn next to skin, can cause cross infection by pathogens and develop odour. Along with this, the staining and loss of the performance properties of textile substrates are also the consequences of microbial attack.

Thus, microbial infestation poses danger to both living and non living matters. Obnoxious smell form the inner garments such as socks, spread of diseases, staining and degradation of textiles are nothing else but a few of the detrimental effects of bad microbes. Basically, with a view to protect the wearer and the textile substrate itself antimicrobial finish is applied to textile materials.

Hence, biocides or say antimicrobials are assigned with significant role of making products that help make people's lives better, safer and healthier. Though the use of antimicrobials have been known for the decades, in the recent couple of years, attempts of finishing textiles with antimicrobial compounds are setting a trend.

It goes self explanatory that Biocides business in textiles- both for conventional and non-conventional uses, is enjoying a niche. Moreover, increasing awareness amongst consumers for hygienic life style accentuates on the fact that it will keep so.

To delve out more about performance of this sector when global textile industry currently is pulling itself through very hard times due to economy downturn, to know about opportunities the sector offers, and to read market survey on hygiene awareness amongst textile manufacturers and consumers, do not miss to click on an exclusive interview, conducted by Face2Face team at Fibre2Fashion, with Mr Terry Yeates, Business Director for Health & Hygiene division, Arch Chemicals Inc.

Backed with workforce of around 3,000 employees the company enjoys leading position in Treatment Products and Performance Products and is pioneer in providing innovative, chemistry-based solutions to control the growth of harmful microbes.
