Devan Chemicals, a Belgian-headquartered provider of finishing technologies and a speciality chemical provider, has launched a new multifunctional antimicrobial brand line. The line consists of their well-known, but recently rebranded quat-silane antimicrobial solution, combined with extra features. This enables textile manufacturers to apply multiple functionalities using only one single treatment.
BI-OME®, Devan’s recently rebranded antimicrobial solution, has been launched with interesting extra features. They have combined its antimicrobial technology with other functional finishes in its product range and now offer a variety of combinations. BI-OME® Quick dry combines the antimicrobial properties (for odour control) with advanced moisture management properties to promote efficient and faster evaporation to aid cooling and comfort.
BI-OME® Stretch combines the antimicrobial solution with stretch recovery properties for better fit. A revolutionary variation is BI-OME® AV, which has an antiviral activity in addition to its antimicrobial properties. BI-OME®, the antimicrobial solution without any extra features, remains available.
The company’s experience with antimicrobial technology goes back a long time where over 25 years of research led to the creation of the BI-OME® product range. Due to a combination of a cross-border support package (mill training, quality control, etc.) and unique product excellence (non-migrating and not using silver), Devan’s antimicrobial technology is used internationally.
BI-OME® is fully BPR and EPA compliant, Oekotex and Bluesign registered, can be delivered worldwide and is applicable for apparel, home textiles, bedding, transport and mobility, among others.
