Ciba Specialty Chemicals: Silver-based Antimicrobials Approved by Oeko-Tex

Ciba Specialty Chemicals’ range of silver-glass-based antimicrobials, Irgaguard B 7000, has gained approval by the Oeko-Tex Association in spinmelt applications for fibres and nonwovens used in items such as clothing, home textiles and bedding materials. Irgaguard B 7000 antimicrobials provide highly effective protection against a wide range of bacteria, mould and yeast. With their special glass matrix that allows controlled release of silver ions, the products are designed for use in polymers processed at up to 500°C. These properties make Irgaguard B 7000 antimicrobials especially suitable for thin items such as fibres for textiles, nonwovens, tapes and transparent applications.

The Oeko-Tex label is widely recognised in the textile industry as a standard of safety testing and inspection. Oeko-Tex Standard 100 was created in 1993 to address the increasing demand for garments and home textiles to be free from any substances that might pose a risk to human health as well as to provide a specific in-use quality standard. Manufacturers who comply with the strict testing and inspection procedures and provide safety and quality assurance are allowed to place the Oeko-Tex label on their products.
