Omniflex LLC has developed antibacterial, odor-control versions of its Transport waterproof, breathable films and its Vacuflex barrier films.
The Greenfield, Mass., firm says the new films combine several properties in a single lamination that also helps control mold and mildew in applications such as footwear, apparel, medical textiles and upholstery.
The Transport products are made of polyurethane, copolyester or ether-amide polymers laminated to fabrics. Vacuflex films are made of moldable polyurethane and are used in automotive trim and medical devices. The odor-control feature is based on technology from Omniflex's partner Etcetera LLC of Northampton, Mass. It relies on silver or copper chemistry, or both, or nonmetallic additives.
