Amicor additives used to enforce anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties are of the highest purity in pharmaceutical grades and have been notified on the European Biocidals Directive.
Amicor additives have been continuously tested over the thirty-year period that they have been in existence. The additives used in Amicor have a track record of being safe and effective. Amicor fibres are highly effective even against resistant bacteria and bioactive materials.
Amicor fibre delivers anti-microbial additives in the most safe and effective way. The additives are added to the liquid polymer before the fibres are fully formed, which means that 99.5% of the additive is inside the fibre structure - not just on the surface of the fibre. As the additives are washed and worn away, the fibre structure allows for replacement by slowly diffusing more additive to the fibre surface, thereby maintaining constant activity. Amicor claims upto 100-washes or more than 5 years durability , depending on washing frequency. The slow diffusion mechanism deep within the fibre is the key to Amicor's durability and continuous control.
