Disinfection of the tissues is a constant problem for anyone working in the healthcare field. To counter this problem, numerous solutions are adopted, from the addition of disinfectant additives to the washing product to nanotechnology, which offers the best disinfection as a result of silver properties. Any disadvantages of these solutions are mainly economical, for the cost of disinfectants, of any allergic reactions in case the disinfected garment is not adequately rinsed, or of limited life in case of nanotechnology for the progressive release of silver nanoparticles that affect the bactericidal effect.
In Pastelli we have adopted a permanent solution, already active at low temperatures, which allows the release of pure silver molecules (999) in the washing water that guarantee a natural and continuous active antibacterial process on more than 650 different types of bacteria, parasites, fungi and Viruses, all without side effects in men, animals and plants.
The “Dinamic Shake Flask” test method in accordance with test standard ASTME2149-01 is the optimal system to demonstrate the antimicrobial effect by imitating the use of fabrics. Additional tests were carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Pastelli DIS-SY 2017 System.
