Huntsman Textile Effects partners with Sciessent to promote Microbe & Odor-resistant Textiles

03 March 2021: Huntsman Textile Effects has joined hand with Sciessent, an industry-leading antimicrobial solution provider, to offer revolutionary antimicrobial and odor-control solutions to textile mills and brands worldwide.

Huntsman Textile Effects will also become the exclusive distribution partner of Sciessent’s Agion Antimicrobial, Lava XL anti-odor solution, and dual-action Active XL. Sciessent Lava XL is a next-generation non-bioactive odor-control solution, ideal for sportwear and athleisure wear. The antimicrobial fights odor-causing bacteria on the garment, while the odor-control solution captures odor generated by sweat on the skin. The result is that garments smell fresher for longer and sustain a high level of performance for more wears.

As consumers around the world begin paying more attention to health and hygiene, Huntsman Textile Effects and Sciessent will cooperate to help mills and brands deliver active wear, outerwear, home textiles and other products with long-lasting protection against microbial growth and odor. “Huntsman Textile Effects now has one of the industry’s most complete end-to-end systems for high-performance protection effects, with a full range of innovative and sustainable protection and comfort technologies from pre-treatment to coloration and finishing,” says Rohit Aggarwal, President of Huntsman Textile Effects.

Designed with smart-release technology, Sciessent antimicrobial and anti-odor technologies deliver long-lasting protection by releasing its active antimicrobial agents only when needed. It can be built-in or applied via padding, exhaust or package yarn to any textile alongside other functional finishes, dyes, inks and pre-treatments. Durable up to 100 home washes, Agion is also customizable to meet brands’ performance and cost goals.

And Sciessent CEO Paul C. Ford, added “Through this partnership, we are both extending our reach to manufacturers and enhancing our offerings by coupling them with Huntsman Textile Effects’ broad range of innovative and sustainable protection technologies.” /
