ACTEEV ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY: A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND SAFE, SELF-CLEANING FILAMENT FOR BRISTLES AND FIBERS.
Acteev delivers breakthrough natural permanent protection for brushes. Microbes can cause products to deteriorate, discolor and smell bad. But Acteev patented technology offers a permanent solution that guards against the growth of unwanted bacteria, fungi and microbes that can cause bristles to degrade.
The technology embeds active zinc ions into the matrix of the polymer. Unlike topical finishes or coatings, the zinc ions don’t flake away, providing long lasting functionality. Our high-performance nylon 6,12 offers superior durability for bristles with excellent clarity and improved appearance compared to other antimicrobial bristles.
Acteev filaments are suitable for a broad range of applications that could benefit from antimicrobial protection, including toothbrushes, cosmetic brushes, mascara wands, hairbrushes, brushes for animal care, cleaning brushes, and vacuum cleaner bristles.
