Now available: a first-of-its-kind active line of protection for face masks, filtration, apparel and plastics
Acteev Protect fabrics, filtration media and engineered plastics deliver breakthrough protection for face masks, apparel, upholstery, air filters, high-touch surfaces 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 odor-causing 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.
