Textiles, Apparel & Footwear Applications
We all know how aggravating bad odors can be, whether it comes from shoes, textiles or clothes, mostly as a result from growing bacteria.Thankfully, a variety of products, like AlphaSan's antimicrobial protection, fights bacterial degradation from within. Milliken’s advanced technology research has produced an additive that can be incorporated into the actual fibers of fabrics, or soles and lining of shoes, preventing bacterial growth and its resulting odor.
AlphaSan also sees applications in bedding and other fiber-fill products, such as pillows, mattresses and sleeping bags that would otherwise harbor bacteria. Our additive impedes bacteria growth, allowing items to stay fresher and odor-free much longer.
