We're pleased to announce that all of our Ultra Compact Microfiber Towels sold under the Outgo® and McNett® Tactical brands will now be treated with SILVADUR™ silver antimicrobial ions. SILVADUR keeps the towel fabric fresh and odor-free by inhibiting the growth of microbes. The antimicrobial technology prevents unpleasant odors, decay and discoloration by preventing the growth of bacteria in the first place.
Our microfiber towels have always led the pack in terms of versatility and features. From patented sewn grommets, snap loops and retention straps to the free toiletry bag. Now that we’ve added the SILVADUR treatment by Dow consumers can grab the towel that truly has it all.
The SILVADUR silver antimicrobial technology offers superior performance over the competition. SILVADUR's patented technology delivers silver ions to fabric surfaces and activates them in the presence of undesirable bacteria. Only SILVADUR uses the world's most advanced intelligent control mechanism to deliver this technology. During testing, after 50 rigorous launderings, SILVADUR still had a 99% antimicrobial control rate against bacteria and fungi.
In addition, SILVADUR has been approved as non-toxic by the International OEKO-TEX® Association. Tested at 10 times the recommended dosage and use levels, SILVADUR is proven to neither irritate nor cause sensitizations in humans. It is truly a durable antimicrobial that can stand up to real life.
This should put an end to towel odors once and for all!
