The SILVADUR™ Advantage

a fundamentally new approach

SILVADUR™ polymer-containing silver technology releases silver ions to neutralize odor-causing bacteria upon contact with your jeans. SILVADUR™ ensures fabrics stay fresh without affecting the fit, feel, or finish of the treated garment.


SILVADUR™ antimicrobial fresh technology performs intelligently at each stage of the supply chain. Manufacturers can create textile products that offer unmatched performance with intelligent protection at reduced dosages while still using standard formulations and applications. Brand owners and retailers can design products that feature intelligent freshness that remains active through 50 washings or more. And, consumers can feel secure in knowing their garments provide intelligent freshness that won’t harm their families or the environment.



Homogeneous finish

SILVADUR™ antimicrobial technology provides uniform distribution of silver ions throughout the fabric– ensuring comprehensive protection and long-lasting freshness.


intelligent dosing

Because SILVADUR™ antimicrobial technology requires less silver than competing products, manufacturers are able to create innovative textile products with unmatched performance no matter the price point they are required to hit. Only SILVADUR™ technology offers intelligent protection at reduced dosages, all while using standard formulations and applications.


Resists Yellowing

Fabrics treated with SILVADUR™ antimicrobial technology will not fade or yellow over time.


No leaching

SILVADUR™ long lasting antimicrobial won’t ever cross the skin barrier or migrate from the fabric. This means that SILVADUR™ antimicrobial won’t impact the micro-flora, or good bacteria, when in contact with skin.


Recyclable & Re-usable

At Dow, we keep what’s best for the earth in mind too. Any unused SILVADUR™ can be collected during the manufacturing process and reused in the next production cycle.
