Devan Chemicals, a Belgian-headquartered provider of finishing technologies, has launched a new multifunctional antimicrobial brand line.

The brand line consists of the company’s well-known, but recently rebranded quat-silane antimicrobial solution, combined with extra features. “This enables textile manufacturers to apply multiple functionalities via one single treatment,” the company explains.

BI-OME, Devan’s recently rebranded antimicrobial solution, has been launched with extra features. The company has combined its antimicrobial technology with other functional finishes in its product range and now offers a variety of combinations:

  • BI-OME Quick dry combines the antimicrobial properties (for odour control) with advanced moisture management properties to promote efficient and faster evaporation to aid cooling and comfort.
  • BI-OME Stretch combines the antimicrobial solution with stretch recovery properties for better fit.
  • BI-OME AV is said to have an antiviral activity in addition to its antimicrobial properties.

BI-OME, the antimicrobial solution without any extra features, remains available. BI-OME is fully BPR and EPA compliant, Oeko-Tex and bluesign registered and is applicable for apparel, home textiles, bedding, transport and mobility applications.

Devan Chemicals is a provider of speciality chemicals, headquartered in Belgium and with offices in the UK, Portugal and the USA. The company was founded in 1977 and has a strong focus on innovation, R&D and sustainability.

The company created the BI-OME product range more than 25 years ago. “Thanks to the combination of a cross-border support package and unique product excellence, Devan’s antimicrobial technology is widely chosen across the globe,” the company reports.

Devan is a leading innovator in the fields of protection (flame retardants), performance (odour control technology and others), thermoregulation (PCM technologies), health and wellness (microencapsulated technologies), and fibres and yarns (functional masterbatch technologies).
