Bellingham, WA (May 13, 2015) — McNett® Corporation announces that all microfiber towels sold under the McNett® Tactical and Outgo® brands will now be treated with SILVADUR™ silver antimicrobial ions. SILVADUR keeps the towel fabric fresh and odor-free by inhibiting the growth of microbes. The antimicrobial technology prevents unpleasant odors, decay and discoloration by preventing the growth of bacteria in the first place.
“The Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel by McNett is packed with more features than a Swiss Army knife. From patented sewn grommets, snap loops and retention straps to the free toiletry bag, our microfiber towels have always been loaded with attractive features missing from the competition,” said Gerald Craft, consumer marketing director. “Now that we’ve added the SILVADUR treatment by Dow consumers can grab the towel that truly has it all.”
The SILVADUR antimicrobial treatment is unique in that it offers a controlled release of silver for improved durability. During testing, after 50 rigorous launderings, SILVADUR still had a 99% antimicrobial control rate against bacteria and fungi.
In addition, SILVADUR has been approved as non-toxic by the International OEKO-TEX® Association. Tested at 10 times the recommended dosage and use levels, SILVADUR is proven to neither irritate nor cause sensitizations in humans. It is truly a durable antimicrobial that can stand up to real life.
All Ultra Compact Microfiber Towels by Outgo and McNett Tactical will now be treated with SILVADUR silver antimicrobial ions to keep them fresh and odor free. For more information, please visit: www.mcnett.com/tactical/microfiber-towel#44035.
