The ultra-lightweight fabric used in all LifeThreads garments is impregnated with an EPA -registered antimicrobial agent that ruptures the cell walls of bacteria and other microbial pathogens, quickly killing them. The agent doesn't break down or leach from the fabric with repeated washing-it lasts for the garment's useful life.
LifeThreads' antimicrobial compound so blocks the reproduction cycles of fungi-much more complex than those of bacteria-that cause problems like dandruff, athlete's foot, and ringworm as well as more serious conditions like the fungal lung infection aspergillosis. Given that fungal pathogens now cause more deaths than malaria worldwide, such protection is increasingly important to healthcare environments.
ODOR CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
LifeThreads clothing has been engineered to eliminate unwanted odors 24/7. The technology physically absorbs odor -source molecules generated from polymer oxidation, migration of external contaminants, or wearer perspiration.
FLUID BARRIER TECHNOLOGY
LifeThreads fabric repels liquids - they bead up and roll off rather than soaking in. This prevents staining and lowers the frequency of laundering, lengthening the life of the garment and reducing energy and water use. Crucially, together with Life Threads antimicrobial impregnation, this reduces soft -surface contamination.
