NordShield introduces environment friendly anti-microbial technology for fibers

Nordic BioTech group Oy, branded as NordShield, is the world top supplier of natural based antimicrobial solutions.

NordShield, has enhanced the market entry with its cutting-edge antimicrobial technology for consumer fibers.

NordShield BioLayr offers textiles such as garments, shoes, and accessories like gloves, a durable antimicrobial layer.

Compared to any other available solution on the market, it is free of heavy metals and the exclusive technology keeps its antimicrobial effectiveness for a minimum of 30 washes, more than the average lifetime of a garment.

By picking this biodegradable solution, the chemical load on the atmosphere can be ominously reduced, says NordShield.

As an end result of more than a decade of R&D, NordShield has, in 2020, commercialised its patented and scalable antimicrobial technology, which is unmatched, being both powerful and natural-based.

It is also non-leaching and safe for its users and the environment. Most prominently, it is sustainably fashioned and free of heavy metals, a growing danger to earth and life on it.

Current average antimicrobial treatments are based on heavy metals such as silver and copper, which are confirmed to be a threat to life and environment by discharge from products into nature, and even into humans through skin exposure.

Through its scalability – for the first time – NordShield has manufactured a technology that makes ecological antimicrobial protection for the masses possible.

The technology is also functional for sustainable and high-efficacy anti-mould protection for textiles during transportation and warehousing, an international issue that expenses the textile industry billions annually in lost revenues and causes thousands of tons in preventable waste.

NordShield removes the need for fossil based poly bags and environmentally doubtful silica bags, that are the industry standard to challenge this issue beside heavy metal based solutions.

Also, NordShield technology actions as a base to a wider range of applications, such as the NordShield Brilliant product family for antimicrobial protection for face masks, hands, feet, shoes and surfaces.

NordShield Pathogen Barrier, a CE-marked solution classified as a medical device, offers antimicrobial protection for the medical field.

Kristoffer Ekman, CEO of NordShield said, “Access to antiviral and antibacterial protection for everyone is key to stop pandemics like COVID-19 from spreading, or new ones forming. By using our technology, brands can offer their customers the next level added value through a physical and yet invisible armour of anti-microbiality, while serving current mega trends of naturality and sustainability.”
