Our laundry program provides a tool to treat laundry in industrial and home systems. BioProtect is the most used antimicrobial in the clothing industry.  It inhibits 99.99% of bacteria on all types of cloth. BioProtect greatly increases the level of clean in healthcare settings.

BioProtect’s unique mechanical mechanism of action destroys odor and stain-causing microbes.  This unique biostatic product provides a residual protective barrier that extends the life of treated goods.  It enhances hydrophobic characteristics without using poisons, toxins or heavy metals.  This cost- effective system will provide a biostatic barrier to keep bacteria, fungi, algae and yeast from treated cloth.  It creates persistently clean sheets, blankets and uniforms.

Bacteria traditionally feed off discarded skin cells and oils that are absorbed into clothing fibers or that reside on clothing surfaces. It weakens the material.  BioProtect is an inhospitable barrier for microbes. Clothing fibers are better preserved, thus increasing the useful life of a garment.

When applied to standard dividing curtains, which separate patients in healthcare, the result is a material that acts as a substantial biological barrier.

Key points:
