SEFAR AntiBac Technology
Minimizes the colonization of micro-organisms / bacteria on filter fabrics in the areas of food, non-food and medicine.
Equipping yarn/fabrics with silver
Sefar has developed a special anti-microbial fabric that does not need any coating and is nonetheless highly efficient.
The silver particles integrated in the polymer are a fixed component of the yarn.
This minimizes the breakdown of silver particles through thermal and mechanical stress. It also achieves a good repository effect.
Affect on micro-organisms
The yarn generates a permanent 'protective cloak' and inhibits or prevents any microbial or bacterial regrowth.
Micro-organism tries to form a colony and absorbs Ag+
Micro-organism dies off after contamination with Ag+
For industry/application specific use please see links below:
Silver ions are universally effective against 650 types of bacteria
Long-term release of positively charged silver ions
General improvement of hygiene and prevention of odor formation
Water (potable and process water)
The use of additives such as chlorine, anti-algae and flocculants can be reduced or completely discontinued
Reduces carbonate hardness (calcium and magnesium ions) and the amount of chlorine and lead in water
Prevents the formation of a biofilm on water
Minimizes or completely prevents odor formation
Increases the shelf-life of water in closed circuits or storage systems
