OdorCrunch

ODORCRUNCH REMOVES ENVIRONMENTAL ODORS

Odors such as cooking fumes or cigarette smoke can build up in certain environments. These odors tend to stick to our garments, leading us to wash our clothes more often.

Polygiene OdorCrunch™ Stays Fresh technology provides a solution to this problem. This natural anti-odor treatment captures, ‘crunches’ and permanently eliminates the odors – keeping the product fresh, reducing the need to wash, and therefore making it last longer.

By removing any environmental odors from the garment, Polygiene OdorCrunch helps create more sustainable fabrics and eco-friendly clothes.

Offensive odor consists of oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur-containing molecules. These odor molecules will stick to the modified silica particles in OdorCrunch. Once the odor molecules are adsorbed, they will be catalytically cracked and broken down and the offensive odor is permanently eliminated.

Combination of the
two stays fresh technologies

The combination of the Polygiene BioStatic™ and Polygiene OdorCrunch™ Stays Fresh technologies stops odors caused by bacteria, such as from sweat, as well as odors from environmental factors, such as cooking fumes. The result is the most efficient and comprehensive anti-odor solution. Garments and other products will feel fresh and clean despite sweaty conditions and smelly environments. And by making products last longer this combination reduces waste, creating more eco-friendly clothes and sustainable fabrics.
