Amicor ensures consistent and lasting hygiene inside textile towels and wipes for both contract as well as domestic markets. Amicor elevates the all-round standards by preventing the growth of potentially harmful bacteria on towels and wipes. Be it glass cloths, hand towels, aprons or surface wipes, textiles will stay more hygienic during use, owing to a marked reduction in cross-contamination.
Bathroom towels pose a slightly different problem- one of fungal growth, because these towels are usually thicker and take longer to dry, they are more prone to the growth of fungi. Bathrooms are humid and warm places thereby providing the micro-organisms an eco-system to thrive. A large, fluffy towel can actually take some time to dry out and by the time it dries, microbes gradually begin to take hold. Amicor makes towels more hygienic to use on freshly bathed skin.
The stale odour associated with sports changing rooms and sports bags attaches itself to sports towels if they are not dried immediately after use.
It is an established fact that odour is caused by bacteria and fungi. Sports towels can quickly become unhygienic since they harbour these organisms. Amicor prevents the growth of a broad variety of both bacteria and fungi within towelling, keeping towels hygienic during and after use.
Relax, Amicor ensures that there will be no nasty smells emanating from your sports bag!
A combination of high temperature laundering and bacterial growth causes bio-degradation of cotton fibres. Amicor performs a different function in this end use - the incorporation of Amicor fibre into roller towels dramatically reduces the rate of bio-degradation and prolongs the life of the towel. Towels with Amicor inside become more tear-resistant and have the ability to retain their original structure for a longer duration.
Since Amicor enhances the useful life of roller towels, rental companies and suppliers tend to receive higher cost benefits. The proven benefits of selling a towel containing 30% Amicor blended inside also means that the towel will last for an incredible 30% longer.
Amicor roller towels are noteworthy for the fact that when the Amicor effect has been worn out, laundries recycle the fabric and turn them into cleaning rags.
Amicor intimately blends with cotton and linen. It stays soft even through repeated washes and is inherently a soft fibre.
The fibre does not affect the softness or fluffiness of bath towels or the absorption rate of kitchen towels. Amicor even prevents the rapid degradation of cotton fibres thereby extending the life of towels by up to 25%.
Amicor also blends with viscose, thus enabling the non-woven production of wipes for kitchens and bathrooms. It extends the life of individual wipes to provide greater value for money.
Towelling materials made of Amicor can be laundered at hospitals and commercial food preparation temperatures and yet maintain a protective zone for up to 200 washes.
