POLYGIENE
How it works

HOW IT WORKS We offer different solutions that make garments, footwear, gear and textiles stay fresh

Today we have two different technologies, as well as a combination of the two. We are constantly working on new and developed solutions to fulfill and broaden our overall promise of Polygiene stays fresh. More technologies are on the way. Stay tuned.

All our stays fresh technlogies are also active in saving water due to less need for washing. Read more about:
Wear More. Wash Less

Biostatic
Stays Fresh Technology

Protection against body odors and more. Based on a silver salt solution. Sweat contains bacteria and they will grow and die in ever-increasing numbers. Absorbing, hiding or delaying will fail at some point. This treatment simply makes it impossible for them to multiply. Hence, it stops the odor at the source to make your stuff stay fresh, and it works for the lifetime of the garment.

The treatment stops the growth of odor causing bacteria in the material. As several treatments can be simultaneously applied at the finish stages of the fabric production process, no additional water or energy is needed and the impact on the environment is reduced.

The active ingredient is a biocide made of silver chloride, it is not nano-silver and does not interfere with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. The treatment is manufactured in the EU with minimal use of resources and in accordance with strict environmental regulations. Polygiene biostatic stays fresh technology has the approvals and certifications relevant for textiles: EPA, BPA, REACH, bluesign® and Oeko-tex Eco Passports and treated products can be recycled.

Odor Crunch
Stays Fresh Technology

Odor control that simply is based on a sand and water solution. Environmental odors such as cooking fumes and cigarette smoke tend to stick to your garments. But once the odor molecules have stuck to the modified silica particles in odor crunch, they will be crunched and cracked to smaller odorless molecules and the odor is eliminated. This also works for the lifetime of the garment.

Offensive odor consists of oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur containing molecules. These odor molecules will stick to the modified silica particles in Odor Crunch. Once the odor molecules are adsorbed, they will be catalytically cracked and broken down and the offensive odor is permanently eliminated.

The production technology is patented and produced in Sweded. No waste is accumulated during the production process, as all raw material is turned into final product. Polygiene odor crunch consists of 95% filtered river water and 5% modified silica sand particles, and it is not a biocide. Polygiene odor crunch stays fresh technology has the approvals and certifications relevant for textiles: (EPA, REACH??), bluesign® and Oeko-tex Eco Passports and treated products can be recycled.

Odor Crunch

Combination of the
two stays fresh technologies

In most cases, combining these two technologies – stopping the growth of odor-causing bacteria and cracking environmental odors to stop the offensive odor – will be the most efficient solution and truly keep the stays fresh-promise. Products and garments will feel fresh and clean despite sweaty conditions and smelly environments.
