OutDoor 2014: Sympatex cooperates with Polygiene


Eco-friendly Sympatex laminates become permanently odourless 

Munich / Unterföhring, 2nd July 2014. At OutDoor 2014, Sympatex Technologies and Polygiene, the worldwide leading supplier of odour-blocking treatments will announce their future cooperation. Polygiene Permanent Odor Control Technology stands for active odour control and long-lasting freshness for apparel, accessories and footwear. As an ecological alternative among functional textile specialists, Sympatex adds another eco-friendly highlight to its portfolio. At OutDoor 2014, Sympatex will present newly developed and current laminates with a sustainable treatments (hall A4, booth 303).

This is how it works: The Polygiene treatment is applied to the inner side of the Sympatex three-layer laminate or the Sympatex liners. The active ingredients of Polygiene neutralise body odour by stopping the growth of bacteria that create odours. In combination with the compact hydrophilic, bacteria-proof Sympatex membrane, bacteria won't stand a chance. The development of body odour on apparel and equipment is stopped permanently.

The environment is also protected: The skin-friendly treatment is based on natural
silver salt, which is extracted from recycled silver. It is also sustainable and eco-friendly, because garments that have been treated with Polygiene stay fresh longer and have to be washed less often. Due to reduced washing cycles, Polygiene increases the life of Sympatex laminates in a sustainable way, reduces the water consumption and protects the environment. Just as the “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane, it is bluesign approved and Öko-tex Standard 100 certified.
