The power to control.

The problem:
Bacteria that causes germs and odor

The solution:

Garmatex’s proprietary antimicrobial technology enables superior odor and fiber degradation resistance in our fabrics through the use of this powerful antimicrobial agent.

Bact-Out® is integrated into the fabric in a manner which allows for complete protection of the fabric and has been proven to be consistently effective with no tendency to cause discoloration.

Laboratory results confirm that the antimicrobial properties of Bact-Out® remain strong after 50 or more machine washes – a powerful benefit for consumers of sports and leisure wear. In trials, using typical application processes on Garmatex fabrics, the bacterial kill rate after 50 machine washes was 99.9%.

The superior performance of this new generation antimicrobial technology has been achieved by combining application expertise with proprietary nano-technology manufacturing processes. The ultra-fine particles adhere more effectively to the fabric for longer protection and is 100% natural.
