US-based firm Acteev is set to launch its new performance textiles line at the 2021 Outdoor Retailer Expo, giving prospective brand and manufacturing partners the opportunity to experience the unique technology hands-on, in booth 51043-UL. Outdoor Retailer is a business-to-business outdoor sports show where brands, retailers, suppliers, and leaders gather.

A proud recipient of a 2021 Outdoor Retailer Innovation Award, Acteev locks in the environmentally safe antimicrobial protection of zinc ions within superior nylon 6,6, creating yarns and fabrics that naturally combat odour- and mildew-causing bacteria, mould, and fungi. The technology protects textiles - from base layers and outerwear to sleeping bags and more - using one of nature’s own elements, according to a media statement by Acteev.

Plus, unlike chemical applications that are coated or sprayed on, Acteev does not rely on any post-production treatment or after-market process. Instead, Acteev’s zinc ions are embedded directly into the matrix of the molecule, providing protection throughout the life of the product. This means that Acteev Performance Textiles require less water in the manufacturing process while ensuring they remain as effective as day one.

“Attendees can see and touch our fabrics and sample garments and experience how our materials are luxuriously soft on the skin yet rugged enough for tough outdoors conditions. As more and more brands work to create sustainable, premium products with the latest in antimicrobial innovation to keep their garments and gear odour-free and safe from mildew, our textiles can help give customers confidence their clothing and equipment are protected,” Joey Barbaree, global segment leader for Acteev said.
