For fresh and longer lasting products
NordShield Crisp® protects fabrics and garments against bad odor and reduces linting. It’s an invisible, yet highly effective protective layer that improves textile performance. Say hi to sustainable, safe and scalable innovation – inspired by nature.
What’s that smell?
Odor in textiles is a combination of two effects, microbial growth, and chemical adsorption.
Bacteria form biofilm on the fiber. They feed off sweat and sebum compounds and degrade them to volatiles that smell bad.
The skin flora releases particles that are adsorbed by the fiber. When these are released, bad smell happens.
NordShield Crisp® is an odor control technology that makes fabrics and garments stay fresh for longer, contributing to longer lasting products.
The layer formed by NordShield Crisp® cannot be seen or felt, but it’s there, enhancing the user experience by hindering bad odor.
