permanent bacteriostatic textiles

NgaPure by NobleBond is a new science for natural wool textiles based on ancient medicine that offers effective and permanent protection for wool.

• NgaPure captures and imparts the long established and well known, natural antimicrobial effectiveness of noble elements against some 600 plus different microbes, including Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli & MRSA to wool fibres, fabrics and textiles.

• The active ingredient is strongly and permanently bound to the wool fibre proteins. As such it cannot be washed out.

• NgaPure is suitable for a range of products in the apparel, interior textiles, and rug and carpet markets.

NgaPure by Noble Bond is a true scientific break-through combining ancient medicinal practice with innovative modern science and technology and the attributes of natural fibres.
