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 technology provides uniform distribution of silver ions throughout the fabric– ensuring comprehensive protection and long-lasting freshness.
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.
Fabrics treated with SILVADUR™ antimicrobial technology will not fade or yellow over time.
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.
