The Ionic+ fabric treatment developed by Noble Biomaterials, headquartered in Scranton, Philadelphia, is now the sole antimicrobial for Flylow Gear, the independent outerwear and apparel manufacturer located in Denver, Colorado.

Ionic+ is uniquely positioned in the marketplace with antimicrobial treatments in both yarn and fabric, using silver ion technology to inhibit the growth of microbes and odour-causing bacteria on fabric.

In Spring 2021, Noble launched Ionic+ Durable, a self-cleaning, silver-based antimicrobial treatment that fights bacteria and other microbes that accumulate on the surface of fabrics.

Reducing odour-causing bacteria allows active users to wash garments less and extend the life of products. Ionic+ has become widely adopted in the outdoor, sport and athleisure markets, as well as in healthcare and medical applications.  

“We design our gear for long days outdoors, whether that’s sitting by the river or a six-hour mountain-bike epic,” says Flylow president and co-founder Dan Abrams. “Including Ionic+ in our apparel means you can do that day-in and day-out without a load of laundry in between, saving time and water.”

“Ionic+ is the perfect match for high performance apparel like Flylow Gear,” adds Allon Cohne, chief marketing officer at Noble Biomaterials. “We strive to be that secret ingredient of why people fall in love with their gear. Flylow has a discerning clientele for performance gear, and we’re thrilled they’ve chosen Ionic+.”

Noble Biomaterials is a registered FDA medical device facility, an essential sole-source technology supplier of medical components to the US military, and a US EPA-registered antimicrobial manufacturer.
