Aerosilver™ Antimicrobial Fabrics
Avantguard breathable face masks are made with our in house developed antimicrobial fabric using Aerosilver™️ technology, which is antiviral, antifungal as well as antibacterial. The functionality of our masks go beyond that of traditional fashion face masks masks as the Aerosilver™️ technology is a safe alternative to chemical and nano treatments most antimicrobial fabrics use. The Aerosilver™️ technology in our unique health care fabric is part of the fiber that the fabric is woven of and doesn’t cause skin irritations, health issues and doesn’t wash out into the environment or loses its antimicrobial properties.
Avantguard masks are the only ones on the market based on Aerosilver™️ technology that have more than one layer: to complement the antimicrobial water resistant outer layer we have complemented the mask with a super soft hypoallergenic quick drying inner #skinprotectlayer™️ made of our in house developed organic jersey fabric with moisture wicking technology that prevents the humid environment that encourages bacterial growth and breakouts.
Our materials come with six international antiviral, antibacterial and safety certifications by the US EPA, Japan SEK, S Korea SF, EU Oeko-Tex 100, ISO1814:2019 and CE.
Aerosilver™️ antibacterial yarn has earned an SEK mark, which is a certification mark given by the Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council. It certifies that this textile product meets the industry-accepted requirements for antibacterial efficacy, safety, labeling, and resistance to washing.
Aerosilver™️ kills 99.9% of germs over time, including Influenza A, H1N1, H3N2 (the cause of influenza and various other respiratory diseases), staphylococcus aureus (the cause of food poisoning) and pneumococcus, which causes various respiratory infectious diseases. These lab results are from KOTITI and KOTERI, Korea's nationally authorized testing, inspection and research institute.
