ANTIMICROBIAL AND ANTIVIRAL MODIFIED YARN

PROLEN®Bodyfresh

PROLEN®Bodyfresh polypropylene yarn has been subjected to a permanent antimicrobial treatment using zinc ions, effectively inhibiting the growth of bacteria, fungi and curtailing viral activity. The result is a significant reduction in unpleasant odours, enhanced hygiene, and a reduced risk of cross-contamination.

Laboratory tests, in accordance with the AATCC TM 100: 2012 standard, validate the antibacterial properties of PROLEN®Bodyfresh fabrics, exhibiting a reduction rate of over 99% against Escherichia Coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus. The antiviral efficacy of PROLEN®Bodyfresh fabric is attested by tests following the ISO 18184: 2019 protocol, demonstrating over 99% reduction against Influenza A virus subtype H1N1 and coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Moreover, PROLEN®Bodyfresh fabric’s antifungal attributes are confirmed by the AATCC 30 standard test protocol, showing no growth against Aspergillus Niger. The Bodyfresh treatment is applicable across all PROLEN® yarn types. In compliance with Oeko-tex® Standard 100, Appendix 6- class 1, PROLEN®Bodyfresh meets the criteria for contact with baby skin.
