Acteev technology combines virus-deactivating active zinc ions with the softness of polyamide fabrics and fibers to deliver unparalleled performance and antimicrobial efficacy. Acteev's patent-pending technology embeds active zinc ions into the matrix of the polymer. Unlike topical finishes or coatings, the zinc ions don't flake away, providing long-lasting functionality.
Ascend has partnered with world-renowned scientists and laboratories to analyze this cutting-edge technology.
