The first clinically acceptable, durable, bio-component family of high-performance fibers, designed and manufactured in the USA, incorporating Micrillon® which provides rechargeable antimicrobial product protection. The fibers have been independently challenged with a wide range of bacteria, endospores, viruses, and fungi, and have proven effective in minutes – not hours or days.
Micrillon is incorporated into the alternating fibers providing extremely effective rechargeable antimicrobial efficacy.
The filament (yarn) is split, after knitting, into 16 triangular,4-6 micron fibers.
Micrillon is a permanent, non-leaching polymer additive.
Micrillon is added to the sheath which limits the amount of Micrillon additive required, resulting in increased antimicrobial efficacy.
DIAMONDfiber is 50% polyamide and 50% polyester, extruded, bio-component filament that when split, results in 16 diamond shaped fibers.
DIAMONDfiber can also be made using the Islands in the Sea method.
