How safe is BENCHBARRIER®?
The fabric we use is treated with polymer based silver ions and is non-toxic, non-sensitizing, and non-irritating to human skin. It has been assessed as harmless to human health and approved by the International Oeko-Tex® Association. The antimicrobial technology used is a polymer-containing silver-technology that delivers silver ions when organisms land or form on treated fabric. These silver ions are bound to the textile surface and release only when they are needed. The silver ion treatment used is registered with the U.S. EPA, meets REACH requirements in the European Union, and is supported under the EU Biocidal Products Registry.
