AN ANTIBACTERIAL SKELETON

The foundations of all our garments

The basis of our garments is sustained by this grid, developed with ionized silver yarn with a high antibacterial power.

By definition most people who practice sports sweat. Many bacteria proliferate with body heat and humidity, producing unpleasant odours.
Despite repeated washing, the odour remains in the fibres and over time, it is common to get the feeling of smelling bad even when we are wearing freshly laundered sportswear.

The mission of this layer is to act as a central structure of all garments providing them with an antibacterial effect.

AN ANTI-ODOUR FRAMEWORK

1st
TREATMENT

Polyamide fibre is treated by a mechanical process with ionic silver particles. Silver concentration in the fibre is the highest possible trying to get a balance between particle adhesion for a maximum antibacterial action but without diminishing flexibility and resistance of yarn.

COATING

Two threads that become one: an ionized silver yarn coats an elastomer mine which provides it with elasticity and firmness. The combination of the elastomer and the coating ionized silver yarn results in a single thread. SILVER: The first to assess the natural antibacterial properties of silver were the Greeks and Romans, who used it to build water storage tanks to reduce diseases caused by its pollution.

MESH

Silver ionized polyamide mesh is part of the central structure as a base layer and is present in all Lurbel garments as a skeleton. It provides an antibacterial effect on garments and gives more durability.
