PurThreadTM Technologies Inc. is dedicated to developing proprietary antimicrobial textile technology. Our patent-pending, integration technology and fiber formulations incorporate an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive into every fiber and yarn to protect the fabric from degradation.
PurThread hopes to help hospitals reduce bioburden on fabric surfaces in the patient environment. Our linens, privacy curtains, and scrubs are easy substitutes for current healthcare textiles. We are researching the impact of these products in the clinical environment. A recent article in the journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology (ICHE) cited encouraging preliminary results from a randomized, controlled clinical study that incorporated privacy curtains using PurThread technology. The EPA has not yet reviewed any potential public health claims for PurThread products.
PurThread also makes a range of freshness products for other markets such as the military, emergency first responders and performance athletic wear in which our next-generation technology and fiber formulations expand the high performance options available to protect fabrics from odor, mold and mildew causing bacteria.
