About the technology and product N9 Pure SilverTM
N9 Pure SilverTM is an antibacterial and hygiene finish applied on fabrics or garments. It is a revolutionary particulate Silver-based technology that, on contact, neutralizes odour causing bacteria, keeping textiles fresher for longer. This breakthrough technology delivers outstanding odour control performance, combined with impeccable environmental credentials and safety profile.
N9 Pure Silver™, a globally patented technology, consists of pure metallic silver in ultra-pure deionized water. The actual silver loading in each gram of N9 Pure Silver™ is incredibly low.
However, the configuration of the individual N9 Pure Silver™ particles makes them highly effective at neutralizing bacteria and other microbes even with this low silver loading.
