Antimicrobial - SelectSilver®
Antimicrobial Additive for Medical Applications
Milliken’s development teams are proud to offer SelectSilver®, an antimicrobial additive for use in medical applications. In response to growing concerns over hospital-acquired infections, our advances are incorporating a silver ion-based technology now used in a variety of FDA 501K-approved healthcare products.
SelectSilver® contains ions that kill a broad range of pathogenic microorganisms by interfering with their metabolism, thereby preventing their spread across surfaces that are touched and handled regularly.
Our additive can supplement best sanitation practices in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare settings where the risk of infection is high, but with minimized potential that bacteria will develop a resistance or immunity to continued exposure.
A Global Milliken Support Team
Manufacturers prefer using Milliken’s SelectSilver® for its ease of application and the untouched tremendous support system Milliken provides along with the product. Our globally-available team is able to assist producers with superior service and quick response times for incorporation of our additives into manufacturing processes. We also provide regulatory assistance to customers.*
SelectSilver® is used in FDA 501K-approved devices, as well as those featuring the CE Mark. Our additive is also TSCA registered and supported by REACH.
