PurThread Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

PurThread Technologies Partners with Beacon Linens to Provide Durable Antimicrobial Protection to Healthcare and Household Bed Linens

PurThread Technologies, Inc. announced a partnership with Beacon Linens to provide antimicrobial and anti-odor protection to the Simple-Fit woven sheets for healthcare and for the home. The foundation of this partnership is PurThread's silver-embedded yarn, which was recently shown in a study by the University of Arizona to kill 99.9% of MRSA, CRE, VRE, P. acnes, T. Menta and other harmful bacteria and fungi on its surface within two hours of contact. The silver, a safe, non-nano ionic silver salt, is EPA registered, and will provide Beacon Linens products made with PurThread with highly effective and durable antimicrobial and anti-odor protection. PurThread is the first to embed silver into the fiber itself before it is spun into yarn and woven into fabrics. This novel technology yields intrinsic antimicrobial benefits that don't wash off or wear away for the life of the fabric or change the fabric's physical characteristics.
