Silpure is a treatment to apply the antibacterial properties of silver to textiles at a reasonable cost. Durability is excellent; tests prove that Silpure controls bacteria after many detergent washes. Since earliest times the ability of silver containers to keep their contents fresh has been well-known. Silpure represents a breakthrough in the use of silver-based antimicrobials for the textile industry. It is applied at the finishing stage for more complete protection of the fabric, and has been proven to be consistently effective, with no tendency to cause discoloration. The ultra-fine particles adhere effectively to fibers to give long-term protection.
