Now available: a first-of-its-kind active line of protection for face masks, filtration and apparel
Acteev Protect fabrics and filtration media deliver breakthrough protection for face masks, apparel, upholstery, air filters and more. Microbes can cause products to deteriorate, discolor and smell bad. But Acteev Protect’s patent-pending technology offers a permanent solution that guards against the growth of unwanted bacteria,fungi and microbes.
The 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.
