Sanitized AG, producer of antimicrobial hygiene protection products for textiles and plastics, has hired Darrell Burnette as its new business development manager for North America.
The company is in the process of launching a new product called Sanitized Silver, an antimicrobial finish that can be applied without a binder during the exhaust process as well as the padding process.
Developed in Switzerland, the finish is based on silver salt – as opposed to metallic silver – so acts on bacterial cell membranes, preventing their growth and reproduction. The finish carries an Oeko-Tex 100 registration (class I-IV) as well as bluesign approval.
“This is good news to textile manufacturers because this means delicate and stretchable fabrics now can be protected against bacteria and order,” said Burnette.
Burnette, a veteran of the textiles/specialty chemical industry, will be responsible for marketing Sanitized Silver in conjunction with Clariant N.A.
