Sanitized® Antimicrobial Finishes Featured In Levi's®

San Francisco-based apparel marketer Levi Strauss & Co. has selected Switzerland-based Sanitized AG's Sanitized® antimicrobial fabric finishes for use in the new Levi's® Commuter collection of apparel for urban commuter cyclists. In addition to antimicrobial protection, the apparel offers increased mobility and durability owing to fabric and construction upgrades, plus water resistance, dirt repellency and reflectivity.

The denim fabrics in the collection feature Sanitized T20-19, a quaternary ammonium-based finish that is designed for cotton and cotton-blend items requiring high-wash durability. The finish acts as a chemical anchor through an organic silicium function, which forms a stable and highly wash-resistant bond with cellulosic fibers, Sanitized reports.

Non-denim fabrics in the collection feature Sanitized Silver, a finish based on silver salt.

The Sanitized finishes are bluesign® approved; meet Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class I-IV requirements; and are compatible with other treatment technologies applied to fabrics in the Commuter collection.
