ADVATEX by Biz Corporates heralds a new era in bacteria control.
Designed specifically for Health and Aged Care environments, ADVATEX limits the spread of bacteria from care giver to patient via their workplace apparel.
The technology behind ADVATEX was developed from the long-proven history that the element silver has a bacteriostatic effect. To create ADVATEX, the element Silver has been converted into a highly efficient, microscopic Silver Compound which is then applied to our textiles via a unique coating procedure. Once coated, the ADVATEX fabric is able to not only resist bacteria, but actively eliminate it. How does ADVATEX work Micro-structured titanium dioxide is the carrier for the anti-bacterially active component silver chloride. In the presence of moisture (e.g. sweat) silver ions with anti-bacterial effect are set free.
Not just another 'Anti-Bacterial' Claim -ADVATEX will control the above bacteria strains with an effectiveness of between 80% and 99%.
Textiles are tested at 400C across 40+ washes, knitwear is tested at 400C across 30+ washes.
Bacterial control, as described above, for the life of the garment can be extended by using an ADVATEX Booster additive. ADVATEX also includes the application of an ‘easy care’ technology to cellulosic fibre garments
The range of 8 bacteria tested for the ADVATEX range is as follows:
• Staphylococcus aureus
• Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
• Escherichia coli (Ecoli)
• Klebsiella pneumonia
• Listeria moncytogenes
• Enterobacter aerogenes
• Pseudomonas aeruginosa
• Corynebacterium xerosis

Absolute Product Safety
Cytoxicity test shows silver ion technology has no influence on the natural balance of the skin. The fresh effect develops in the textile, leaving the skin unaffected and fully functional.
ADVATEX for effectiveness only requires using low temperature wash using less energy and preserving CO2 balance. The active silver ingredient cannot be washed out of the textile. Added benefit of using ADVATEX is the washing machine stays clean.
