New American Fabric

An antimicrobial textile platform

Two innovations enable the creation of this platform:

  1. Standard chemical moieties in the textile industry for attaching compounds to cellulose-based fibers.
  2. Innovative selenium chemistry that allows for the economical creation of organo-selenium compounds.

Selenium is a unique and ideal anti-microbial for incorporating into cellulosic materials

Selenium treated materials are stable and have long term effect on bacterial and fungal biofilms.

New American Fabric combines these innovations to create a patent protected approach to creating economical antimicrobial textiles.

These patented compounds are “drop in” by their nature, and do not require utilizing non-standard industry applicators to bind to cellulose.
