BactiBlock® in the ACP list from OEKO-TEX® !

OEKO-TEX® standards, focused on textiles and leather goods, enable everyone to make responsible decisions and protect natural resources. According to these specific manufacturing standards, BactiBlock 920 B4 has been successfully registered in the ACP list from OEKO-TEX®.

In principle, according to OEKO-TEX®, it is not possible the use of active chemical products (ACPs). However, with some textiles, the use of ACPs is unavoidable. In this case, ACPs may be used, provided that they are assessed by independent toxicologists as being harmless to human health.

What are ACPs? ACPs are modified polymers, preparations and chemical substances used in the textile industry. ACPs are either already integrated in fibre production or added during a later phase of textile manufacture. With regard to ACPs, OEKO-TEX® differentiates mainly between biologically active substances / biocides and flame-retardant substances. Biologically active fibre materials, like BactiBlock 920 B4, can be part of odour-preventing or antimicrobial textiles. 

OEKO-TEX® only includes those ACPs in the list of accepted substances if they have been checked by accredited toxicologists and assessed as being harmless to human health.The safety assessments by the toxicology institute are based on the information and formulas from the manufacturer and are compliant with current European legislation.

And what about how to add BactiBlock to textile or leather?

BactiBlock can be applied during common textile finishing processes such as dip coating, padding, foaming or spraying. Other processes like extrusion, commonly used for synthetic fibres processing are also compatible with BactiBlock. When it comes to leather treatment, Bactiblock can be easily added trough surpeficial treatment at a low dosage to obtain antimicrobial protection. On the other hand, polymeric foams, commonly used in the production of mattresses or furniture can also be treated successfully with Bactiblock.  Get in touch with us for further information about BactiBlock in textile & leather products!
