SANITIZED UV-resistant mildew protection

News | April 1, 2015 | By:

A new development from Swiss SANITIZED AG, specialist in antimicrobial hygiene function and material protection, prevents loss of performance in textile treatments under aggressive insolation. Sanitized® TH 12-13, which can be used on textiles and for polymer coatings, offers long-lasting UV-resistant protection against mildew.

A large number of treatments are available to protect textiles in outdoor use against environmental influences such as sun, wind and rain. However, user experiences and market observations show that the protective functions do not last in the long term. Sunlight intensity massively impairs the functions applied, with possible consequences such as premature material fatigue and unsightly stains caused by mildew infestation.

SANITIZED AG’s new technology assures a UV-resistant, outstanding anti-mildew effect. Sanitized TH 12-13 counteracts destructive infestation by micro-organisms. It is temperature-resistant, can be used in conventional application methods and is suitable for aqueous coating systems. Sanitized TH 12-13 can be used in standard polymer matrices.

Products whose primary function is sun-protection, such as tarpaulins, tents, awnings, parasols and umbrellas, architectural textiles, as well as coated textiles, can benefit from a UV-resistant, anti-mildew treatment using Sanitized TH 12-13, a product that is still convincing even under high air humidity and persistent rain.

The product is subject to the SANITIZED AG standard of using only registered (BPR registration) and safety-tested antimicrobial active ingredients.

This product innovation won the ITMA future materials award.

SANITIZED AG is a producer of antimicrobial hygiene function and material protection for textiles and plastics. The company’s range of services includes advice on marketing and technical issues, diverse testing services, as well as a well-founded brand and license concept.
