Gladiodor® Garment Odour Control
Climbing, skiing, running: at some point you’re going to sweat. And at some point you’re going to stink. There was a time when body odour was considered a natural byproduct of exertion – something to be expected, even celebrated. For most people those days are gone. Customers nowadays expect some form of odour control with their technical knits. Gladiodor® Garment Odour Control is our solution.
Sweat does not stink. The bacteria that grow on our skin or the clothing we wear are what cause odour. These bacteria convert the sweat and oils from skin into a complex mixture of chemical compounds that lead to unpleasant odours.
How Gladiodor® technology works
Gladiodor® technology reduces the odour on a garment in a couple of different ways:
- One method uses molecular “spears” to puncture the cellular wall of the bacteria, effectively killing it.
- The other method adsorbs odour-causing chemical compounds inside the pores of carbon particles.
Gladiodor® treatments are thoroughly tested for functionality, initially and after washing. To pass our lab testing, the treatment must be effective after 50 washes.Background Photo: by Terri Laine
