The majority of facemasks are made with fabrics not inhibiting the growth of bacteria and viruses. However, Meryl skinlife force hi-tech fabric combines the silver-ion technology with specific microfibre continuous filament with high tenacity. It doesn’t shred any microfibres, ensuring viruses are trapped and inhibited effectively into fabrics and garments.
Silver micro particles are potent antimicrobial agents due to its unique chemical and physical properties. Silver interacts with sulphur-bearing moieties of viruses leading to inhibition of post-entry stages of infection through blocking of viral proteins. Silver-ion technology inhibits the growth and proliferation of the bacteria and viruses in the fabrics.
Nylstar has developed Meryl skinlife force with a permanent viroblock technology, using the silver-ion active principle from the Swiss laboratory HeiQ. This technological innovation also allows an even longer durability of the garments, which is in line with Nylstar’s continuous efforts to help the fabric and clothing industry move forward sustainable and full circular economy.
Meryl skinlife force hi-tech fabrics may be used for the development of garments, masks, gowns and buffs that may be reused over 100 times after being washed at a temperature of 60°C, which guarantees total elimination of viruses, while maintaining their permanent viroblock effect.
Thanks to the microfibre technology of the Meryl skinlife force, the facemasks and garments have supremely soft touch and protects the skin from redness and allergic reactions.
Meryl skinlife force fabrics as well as all other Meryl hi-tech fabrics are designed to avoid microfibre pollution. Meryl hi-tech fabrics bring the textile industry the necessary quality and touch without polluting air and water by spinning its high quality continuous filament with extraordinary tenacity.
No use of silicones or softeners are needed to enhance the touch of the Meryl hi-tech fabrics. High performance is an inherent part of Meryl hi-tech fabrics and hence do not need special finishing or any other chemical treatments.
Meryl skinlife force as well as all other Meryl hi-tech fabrics from Nylstar are completely and infinitely recyclable without suffering any loss of performance, which allows a full sustainable and circular economy.
