Guidance for Discharge of Textile Processing Wastewater Containing SILVADUR™ Antimicrobial

Posted on 13 Sep , 2018

SILVADUR™ Antimicrobial is a polymer-based silver ion release technology derived from silver nitrate as the active biocidal substance. SILVADUR™ contains a proprietary polymer designed to control silver ion delivery into fabric fibers for effectively controlling mal-odour, unwanted fabric deterioration or discoloration caused by microorganism growth. During textile processing, SILVADUR™ is effectively transferred from the treatment bath to the textile. Because of its unique, patented composition and mode-of-action, the SILVADUR™ treatment process results in baths with minimal to no residual silver.
