Polygiene, leading provider of odour control for textiles, has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Prebona that gives Polygiene access to Prebona’s OdorControl technology. The process encapsulates and breaks down odour caused by bacteria. Polygiene has so far focused on preventing odour by stopping bacterial growth on the fabric.

The agreement extends initially over a period of three years.

The patented technology by Sweden-based material science company Prebona encapsulates and breaks down odour caused by bacteria on a garment. Polygiene has to date focused on preventing odour by stopping the growth of bacteria on the fabric. Both technologies complement each other; the agreement broadens Polygiene’s product offering and increases the company’s market opportunities.

“For Polygiene, it is of strategic importance to offer different types of odour control technologies. Our collaboration with Prebona enables Polygiene to expand our product portfolio and present a stronger customer offering to both new and existing customers,” says Ulrika Björk, CEO, Polygiene. “We have evaluated Prebona’s product for some time, and we are very pleased that they chose Polygiene as a partner. We are looking forward to launching the new product this fall."

“The agreement provides Prebona OdorControl with a strong position in the global textile market due to Polygiene's relationship with leading brands,” says Orvar Otterstedt, CEO, Prebona. “At the same time, we are pleased to partner with a highly competent and innovative company like Polygiene in a segment that, I believe, holds vast potential for our company’s products."
