With bacteria propagation becoming a health concern of increasing urgency, DOMO has developed NYLEO® SAFE fiber to fight this problem.

A permanent bacteriostatic effect

A bacteriostatic agent is introduced into the polymeric matrix, creating a long-lasting effect to protect the fibers and inhibit the growth of bacteria while maintaining all the standard characteristics of polyamide 66 fibers like comfort, mechanical resistance and durability.

Thanks to this technology, we have better control over the level of bioactivity​ and the bacteriostatic properties, which are resistant to washing as the agent cannot wash out.

Silver-based ions inhibit bacteria growth

NYLEO® SAFE features a powerful and compliant solution of silver-based ions. Silver is widely used for human contact applications and is known to be effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms that cause odor, discoloration, biofouling and other aesthetic problems.

Excellent antibacterial efficiency

According to laboratory tests under the best standards, over 99.99% of bacteria are inhibited with bacteriostatic fiber on pure polyamide 6.6 fabrics  after 24 hours of contact with bacteria like staphylococcus aureus or klebsiella pneumoniae.

NYLEO® SAFE provides a proven, long-lasting effect even after 100 washing cycles, and a significant effect with a 20% blend of NYLEO® SAFE fiber with other non-treated fibers.
