Odor-free polyester functional clothing: Patented Sanitized® Odoractiv 10 technology with bluesign®, ECO PASSPORT, and Skin Friendly certification (2/5/19)
Burgdorf/CH, 5 February 2019: Polyester sport and functional textiles treated with Sanitized®
Odoractiv 10 are protected against “permastink”. Already a holder of the Swiss Technology Award, the
Sanitized® Odoractiv 10 odor-management technology can now carry the bluesign® sustainability
label, the Skin Friendly certification from the Hohenstein Institute and the ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-
TEX® label. SANITIZED AG has been a bluesign® system partner for over 10 years.
An unwelcome odor can quickly develop in polyester sport and functional clothing, even if freshly
washed. This is “permastink”. It’s a challenge to the textile industry as it generally reduces the
attractiveness and market opportunities of sport and functional clothing made from polyester.
The patented, non-biocidal Sanitized® Odoractiv 10 technology provides specific solutions and sales
arguments for the end products. It works in two ways: The odor-causing bacteria can’t stick to the
textile surface and are washed out completely in a normal wash cycle. This is due to the anti-adhesive
“coating” applied in the padding process. This effect has been proven in a test procedure developed in
cooperation with EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Material Science and Technology). Secondly,
the treatment has an adsorbing effect. The odors are “trapped” and repeatedly expelled during a
normal wash cycle.
No binder, no nano
Another characteristic: The treatment with Sanitized® Odoractiv 10 doesn’t apply an additional binder
system. As with all of our products, SANITZED AG uses no nano technology. The safety and tolerability
have been confirmed by the Skin Friendly certification from the Hohenstein Institute and ECO
PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® label. These have now been joined by the bluesign® accreditation.
