The leading SILVER ION technology which provides hygiene, protection and freshness for textiles.

SILVERPLUS® is based on a special silver compound which has been applied to micro structured substrates by means of aqueous or coating application. It works on the triple effect mechanism where many odour-causing bacteria cannot adapt to the effect of silver ions. The silver ions with a positive charge have bacteriostatic effects.

Effect mechanism

  • blocking oxygen-transporting enzymes
  • inactivating sulphur containing proteins of the odour causing bacteria
  • locking the cell membrane


  • provides bactericidal and slightly fungicidal properties
  • imparts non-migrating and antimicrobial effects
  • maintains freshness of textiles after washing
  • does not affect the rub, perspiration or light fastness of dyeing
  • resistant to washing and dry cleaning
  • resistant to yellowing
  • resistant to higher drying temperatures
  • stable at pH 3 – 11
