Dow Microbial Control, a business unit of Dow Chemical Co., has launched the Certified Mill Program to recognize textile manufacturers that have successfully completed a training program and demonstrated their proficiency in applying SILVADUR™ Antimicrobial in their production processes. SILVADUR Antimicrobial offers odor control and freshness in apparel, home textiles and footwear by releasing silver ions as odor-causing organisms appear on the surface of the treated fabric. Among the criteria for selection are a mill’s customer base and its relationship with those customers, its reputation for quality, relevant production volume and willingness to collaborate with Dow. Dow Microbial Control will provide eligible mills with advanced technical and production training, increased promotional support, such as inclusion in case studies, and, more importantly, expanded access to leading brands and retailers. Mills interested in participating in the Certified Mill Program can find additional information at www.silvadur.com or www.dow.com.
