This is an advanced silver-based technology to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mildew, mould and other microorganisms that can cause odors, discoloration and deterioration of various consumer and commercial products. By incorporating this technology into the yarn, apparel manufacturers can have a fine microfibres yarn which promises increased freshness through effective antimicrobial protection. Antimicrobial microfibres assist in controlling odour, making the product more attractive to sportspeople and outdoor enthusiasts. Companies are studying about the demand for fabrics made from this yarn in the marketplace for antibacterial yam and tested several antimicrobials seeking a product that could provide high temperature stability and wash resistance. Nylon 6.6 yarn is used during the fibre formation process for incorporating the new body fresh yarn technology. This new technology also offers benefits in terms of durability as the fabric will retain its antimicrobial properties through at least 50 washings.
