Is the Sanitized® Silver nanotechnology?
No, it is not nanotechnology. Sanitized® Silver is neither produced by nanotechnology nor does the particle size of Sanitized® Silver fit into the nano-range.
Who ensures that Sanitized® Silver is not nano-silver?
An independent Institute has certified that Sanitized® Silver is not a nanosilver-based product. Particle size and partition of Sanitized® Silver has been measured by “Generic Latex Measurement”. The result confirmed clearly that the particle size of Sanitized® Silver is out of the nano-range.
How is it possible to differentiate nanosilver and other silver technologies?
The measurement of particles is the only possibility to separate between nano- and non-nano-based Silver. You can ask for a statement from the supplier.
Who defines nano particle size range?
Nano is a physical size which is clearly defined just like millimetres, meters etc. A nanometre is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one billionth of a metre. The particle size of Sanitized® Silver is far above this range.
Are articles with Sanitized® Silver technology safe?
Yes, they are safe. Sanitized® Silver fulfils strict requirements proven by stringent quality tests. This makes Sanitized® Silver safe for man and environment. It is accepted by Oeko-Tex 100 - Class I (safe for babies) as well as bluesign®.
Is Sanitized® Silver safe for the environment?
Yes. Sanitized® Silver is safe for man and environment. Sanitized® Silver has been designed to durably bond on the fibre. Therefore, Sanitized® Silver does not leak into the waste water. This has been proven by stringent quality tests following strict ecological requirements and certified by independent institutes. An awareness concerning health, safety and the environment is an integral component of the SANITIZED business policy.
Is Sanitized® Silver safe for the skin?
Yes, it is safe. Sanitized® Silver does not have a negative affect on skin; it is durably bonded to the fibre. This has been proven by strict international quality tests and confirmed by independent organisations: Test report OECD 404 confirms no skin irritation and test report OECD 406 proves that there is no sensitization of the skin. These results are also confirmed by Oeko-Tex 100 - Class I (safe for babies).
Is Sanitized® Silver dangerous for the respiratory system?
Definitely not. Sanitized® Silver is durably bonded to the fibre and can not be inhaled.
Can the silver finish leak into the washing machine and cause water contamination?
Sanitized® Silver does not cause water contamination. Sanitized® Silver does not transfer onto other clothing articles during home laundering because it is bonded to the fibre. It does not leak into the waste water. This is proven by stringent tests that meet highest requirements.
How can SANITIZED prove that there is no risk for man and environment?
The safety of Sanitized® Silver is proven by strict tests that meet highest requirements and it is certified by Oeko-Tex 100 – Class I (safe for babies) as well as bluesign®.
