PurThread™ fibers are integrated with an antimicrobial agent when the polymer is molten, providing an even distribution as opposed to a topical coating or coated standard fiber. The result is a flexible fiber that can be blended into multiple yarn combinations and is easily dyed. The antimicrobial agent is non-leaching and retains its efficacy through launderings and wear. Hospital privacy curtains using PurThread fabric take seven times longer to become contaminated than control curtains and are eight times less likely to be contaminated with the superbug VRE.
