SCRANTON, PA. (April 1, 2021) — Noble Biomaterials, creator of the most advanced antimicrobial system on the planet, announces today the release of their new Ionic+TM fabric solution, Ionic+TM Durable.
Ionic+ Durable is a silver-based fabric finish that is an effective, expedient way to deliver antimicrobial benefits. It is applied at the finishing stage, allowing for maximum design freedom and production flexibility. The novel solution meets or exceeds state-of-market performance, and while the application has achieved a 50x wash durability rating, the self cleaning, odor-eliminating ionized silver will ensure fewer washes to help conserve water, energy, and natural resources, as well as reduce fabric degradation over time.
Noble’s history of groundbreaking innovation – from their commitment to pushing the barriers of material science with its proprietary silver-coating technology. the first EPA-approved silver antimicrobial, to the first silver technology in an FDA approved medical device, to the first antimicrobial on the ￼International Space Station – showcases their commitment to pushing the barriers of material science with its proprietary silver-coating technology.
With the addition of the new Ionic+ topical treatment to an already robust portfolio, this new offering is the capstone that allows Noble to offer the most advanced antimicrobial system on the planet for clothing, footwear, luggage, bedding, medical wound care products, and more.
“The addition of Ionic+ Durable to our technology portfolio is the result of years of innovation and research into the benefits of ionic silver. We want to ensure that our partners have access to the highest performing and broadest array of antimicrobial solutions,” says Joel Furey, Noble Biomaterials Co-founder, and Chief Commercial Officer. “Noble pioneered the use of silver in textiles and is a key technology supplier to leading healthcare, consumer, aerospace, and defense companies around the world. With the addition of Ionic+ Durable, we are excited to continue our mission by powering products that protect, save, heal, and improve lives.”
