Agion Active, odor-eliminating technology for textile industry

23
Jul '09
Agion announced Agion Active, the first textile treatment to combine antimicrobial protection with brand new industrial-strength odor elimination in a move that will take odor control into the mainstream for textile applications.

Agion's silver-based antimicrobial technology, which has been proven in over 15 million pairs of shoes, naturally fights bad smells by killing the bacteria that cause them. Agion Active goes one step further by adding a new technology based on rocks that pulls in environmental, ambient or absorbed odors like a vacuum and then eliminates them.

Agion Active can be used in any fabric where odor is an issue including sportswear, uniforms, tents, sleeping bags, pet beds, carpets and even casual wear, providing “stink relief” to people in nearly every aspect of their lives.

“Agion Active brings 21st century odor-eliminating technology from the lab to the living room,” said Paul Ford, chief executive officer of Agion Technologies. “Agion Active has widespread potential in any application where odor is an issue.”

Unlike some antimicrobials that are built into the fibers of fabric, Agion Active is incorporated during the finishing step of the manufacturing process. This gives manufacturers cost-savings and greater flexibility by allowing them to easily shift from one color or style to another without creating large, costly inventories.

Agion Active also represents a breakthrough in treating white materials. Agion Active's patented approach keeps white fabrics white during manufacture with no concern for discoloration – a common drawback until now with other silver-based antimicrobials. The industry-first process took six years to perfect.

Agion Active's environmentally-friendly antimicrobial technology is based on silver, “Nature's antimicrobial.” It is the only antimicrobial to achieve the prestigious Cradle to CradleCM environmental certification at the Gold Level.
