Livinguard has announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved the hygiene-technology company’s patented self-disinfecting textile (EPA Reg N. 95700-2). Livinguard’s new textile is effective against Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria to the tune of 100,000 times in 10 minutes, among the highest levels of defense against disease-causing pathogens.
In addition to killing 99.999% of bacteria, Livinguard’s technology continuously disinfects and is safe for humans and the environment. Furthermore, the EPA approval confirms Livinguard’s self-disinfecting technology remains effective on textiles tested after 30 industrial washes, giving it broad application across many industries.
The self-disinfecting textile is expected to be used in airplane seats, hospital and hotel linens, sports apparel, medical scrubs, footwear, uniforms, carpeting and more.
