Nano-Spear™

Advanced Nano Technology for Antimicrobial Protection

TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED PROTECTION

NANO-Spear™ is a new coated fabric technology developed to inhibit odor causing bacteria and a wide array of microorganisms including mold, mildew, and fungi. Integrated within the fabric is a microscopic bed of nano-size spikes that lie in wait to puncture the cell walls of invading microbes, inhibiting them as they come to rest on the fabric’s surface. NANO-Spear™ technology is a totally new approach to providing long-lasting antimicrobial protection for coated fabrics used in industries that require the highest levels of hygiene.

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?
• Not a leaching poison.
• No depleting heavy metals.
• Effective for the useful life of the fabric.
• Dramatically reduces static.

 

WHY USE NANO-Spear™?

• Inhibit stain and odor causing microbes while enhancing the life
of fabric.

• Without this extra level of protection, the microorganisms rapidly repopulate. This long-term protection is not achieved by ordinary cleaning methods.

• Rigorous testing by both independent and World Health Organization approved laboratories confirms that NANO-Spear™ has been proven to reduce the growth of microbes, algae, mold, yeast and mildew populations by up to 99.99% and continues to inhibit their return for the useful life of the fabric.*

FEATURES INCLUDE:
• Independent studies show it significantly impedes the growth of gram- positive gram-negative bacteria, algae, yeast and fungi, and black mold.

• Fabric’s antimicrobial properties do not fade over time.

• Revolutionary nano technology used in NANO-Spear™ molecule is EPA registered.

• Antimicrobial properties leave no visible trace on fabric, giving fabric the same look and feel as other non-antimicrobial fabrics.

• Embedded in fabric during manufacturing process.

• Permanent for useful life of fabric.
