Outdoor 2014: Sympatex Cooperates With Polygiene

MUNICH/UNTERFOHRING, Germany — July 2, 2014 — At Outdoor 2014, Sympatex Technologies and Polygiene, the worldwide leading supplier of odor-blocking treatments will announce their future cooperation. Polygiene Permanent Odor Control Technology stands for active odor control and long-lasting freshness for apparel, accessories and footwear. As an ecological alternative among functional textile specialists, Sympatex adds another eco-friendly highlight to its portfolio. At Outdoor 2014, Sypatex will present newly developed and current laminates with sustainable treatments.

This is how it works: The Polygiene treatment is applied to the inner side of the Sympatex three-layer laminate or the Sympatex liners. The active ingredients of Polygiene neutralize body odor by stopping the growth of bacteria that create odors. In combination with the compact hydrophillic, bacteria-proof Sympatex membrane, bacteria won't stand a chance. The development of body odor on apparel and equipment is stopped permanently.

The environment also is protected. The skin-friendly treatment is based on natural silver salt, which is extracted from recycled silver. It is also sustainable and eco-friendly, because garments that have been treated with Polygiene stay fresh longer and have to be washed less often. Due to reduced washing cycles, Polygiene increases the life of Sypatex laminates in a sustainable way, reduces the water consumption and protects the environment. Just as the "guaranteed green" Sympatex membrane, it it bluesign approved and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified.
