Hygieias powerful eco-friendly technology inhibits the growth of viruses and bacteria on fabrics, eliminating odor and pathogens for the life of the garment. Permanently bonded 99.9% pure natural metallic silver to the surface of the fiber creates a silver ion shield that kills all microorganisms; bacteria (antibacterial), viruses (antiviral), fungi (antifungal) and protozoa (antiprotozoal).
Hygieia utilizes the power of silver embedded into a variety of fabrics to help kill bacteria on contact.
UAT BioTech is among the first to design and develop silver-based advanced textile technologies designed for mission critical applications, and is an innovator in the field of smart textile applications across multiple market segments. HYGIEIA is the result of a significant investment in time, money and resources to develop the smartest textile on the market.
