Noble Biomaterials, maker of the X-Static silver-based antimicrobial fibre technology, has received Bluesign approval for its XT2 anti-odour protection.

The XT2 technology offers permanent anti-odour protection that does not wash off or wear out. The treated fibres are dyeable, providing brands with flexibility in design.

The product line met Bluesign requirements for durability, adherence, efficacy, and low human toxicity, as well as other quality and safety performance measures, the company said.

“This next milestone in our partnership with Bluesign demonstrates our continued commitment to sustainability,” said Noble Biomaterials CEO Jeff Keane.

Bluesign works with chemical suppliers, textile mills and component manufacturers to address the environmental, health, and safety impacts of textile manufacturing. Noble Biomaterials has been a Bluesign system partner since 2013.
