SmartSilver™ Nanoscale Technology and Cotton

SmartSilver, the smarter anti-odor and antimicrobial answer™, is engineered at the nanoscale to impart permanent anti-odor/antimicrobial properties to natural and synthetic fibers and fabrics. SmartSilver for cotton enables manufacturers to offer their customers permanent, high-performance anti-odor and antimicrobial properties in addition to everything consumers have come to love about cotton. SmartSilver is easily applied to cotton and cotton blends in standard fabric finishing systems and delivers life-of-the garment durability.

SmartSilver permanently delivers the highly antimicrobial power of pure silver, without requiring designers seeking anti-odor performance to compromise in other areas, such as dye performance, hand, stretch, durability, or manufacturability. SmartSilver additives are engineered to evenly disperse anti-odor SmartSilver that forms permanent bonds with fiber structures ranging from natural cotton and wool to rayon, polyester, nylon, and polypropylene.
