MICROORGANISMS AND DUSTMITES

Microorganisms: freshness, hygiene and comfort are desirable features for any textile product. The
primary outcome of microorganisms proliferating on textiles is the creation of unpleasant smells
and stains which can result in an uncomfortable feeling.
 
Dustmites: The proportion of the population with allergic reactions is on the increase and allergic
reactions can have adverse effects on health and quality of life. It is not uncommon for an allergy to
develop into a form of asthma. For example, it has been scientifically established that 25% of all
allergies and 50% of all asthma cases are caused by allergens of the dustmite in our homes,
particularly in bedding goods.
 
HOW DOES IT WORK?
 
ægis® is a revolutionary technology, which guarantees an optimal active freshness and hygiene for textiles. The technology is based on the fixation of a non-migrating permanent coating on the fibres. The microorganisms are being attracted by the coating. Once they come in contact with the ægis® coating, the cell membrane of the organism is punctured, as if by a sword. The piercing mechanism deactivates the microorganism, preventing growth and proliferation.
 
ægis® is specially designed to deactivate the microorganisms (fungi) that dustmite need for the predigestion of its food (skin cells). By disrupting the food chain, the dustmite population can be
controlled.
