Polygiene in Workwear


All-day Freshness – anti-odor technology for workwear

Polygiene’s powerful anti-odor and antibacterial technology for workwear eliminates smells at the source, so employee clothing stays fresher for longer. By reducing odors, our Freshness solutions enable users to wash their garments less frequently without them becoming smelly or uncomfortable. Whether you manufacture sharp suits for the office, overalls for the workshop, or PPE for clinical environments, our antibacterial technology for work clothes ensures employees don’t have to worry about unpleasant odors and feel more comfortable and confident.

At the same time, Polygiene Freshness solutions boast significant environmental benefits. Garments that require less washing last longer and do not need replacing as often, making them a more sustainable option. Less frequent washing also means end-users consume less water and energy and spend less time and money on laundry.

  • Fresher for longer

    Polygiene Freshness technologies eliminate unpleasant odors, so workwear needs less washing and end-users save energy, water, money and time.

  • Extending product lifespan

    Because workwear needs less frequent washing, it lasts longer and does not need replacing as frequently.

  • Lifetime protection

    Polygiene technology is built-in, providing ongoing protection and freshness for a product’s entire lifespan.

  • Safety compliant

    Polygiene additives comply with REACH, the EU’s chemical products and manufacturing legislation, and meet all current safety standards.

Better hygiene built-inbuilt-in

We’re already in hundreds of workwear garments, from chefs’ jackets and hospital gowns to performance clothing and staff uniforms, increasing levels of freshness and eliminating odors. That means less frequent laundry for you (or your staff) leading to less water use and less need to replace – that saves you money and reduces your impact on the environment.

Polygiene technology provides lifetime protection

Polygiene solutions are integrated into textiles during manufacturing. As such, they are IN fabrics, not ON them. Because they form part of the textile, they cannot wash off and provide 24/7 protection for a product’s entire lifespan. 

Each of our solutions tackles a unique source of unpleasant scents, from odor-causing bacteria to the molecules responsible for bad smells.

The technology

Established anti-odor technology for workwear

Polygiene Freshness technology is already in hundreds of workwear garments, from chef whites and hospital gowns to performance clothing and retail uniforms. By tackling unpleasant odors, it drastically reduces the laundry burden on businesses and employees. It also cuts resource use, avoids issues with regular garment replacement and reduces long-term costs.

Polygiene technologies are added during the manufacturing process and integrated into the fabric, ensuring they last for the product’s entire lifetime and there is no need for reapplication. This is a considerable improvement on standard anti-odor and antibacterial technologies, which often break down quickly and require regular reapplication.

Each Polygiene solution has its advantages and specialist applications. Polygiene StayFresh™ prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria, making it ideal for workwear used in hot, humid and sweaty environments. Or workplaces where dirt and grime are commonplace. Polygiene OdorCrunch™ tackles environmental odors, such as cooking smells and smoke. As a result, it is fantastic for hospitality workwear and other garments regularly exposed to environmental odors. Polygiene ViralOff™ is super-tough on microbes of all kinds, making it the preferred choice for healthcare settings or work environments where hygiene is a critical concern.

For manufacturers concerned with reducing their environmental footprint and producing more eco-friendly workwear, Polygiene Freshness technology is an excellent option. As Polygiene solutions are added during manufacturing, application requires no additional energy or water. Reduction in resource use due to less frequent washing and longer garment lifespans also contribute to more sustainable products. An independent Life Cycle Assessment on a Polygiene StayFresh-treated T-shirt demonstrated the technology reduces the product’s overall environmental impact by a third.
