O'Mara Introduces Antimicrobial Yarns

O'Mara Inc., Rutherford, N.C., has developed two new antimicrobial yarns, MicroFresh and SoleFresh, which feature Spartanburg-based Milliken Chemical's AlphaSan® antimicrobial agent for odor control. O'Mara developed MicroFresh for activewear, while SoleFresh was designed for hosiery applications.

O'Mara's new SoleFresh yarns for hosiery applications feature Milliken Chemical's AlphaSan® antimicrobial agent.

"We developed these new high-performance yarns in response to market demand for value-added yarns that offer specific benefits to consumers," said Tim O'Mara, manager. "We would like to expand the use of AlphaSan antimicrobials to more of our yarn products. We have been testing different applications in value-added areas such as automotive and industrial furniture coverings, and have been extremely pleased with the results. "
