The active antimicrobial agent utilizes non-toxic hydrogen peroxide which degrades to eco-friendly water and oxygen.

The company said Textiles treated with Stay Fres have been proven to retain potent antimicrobial activity for as many as 100 wash cycles, with reduction of bacterial levels by up to 99.9999%.

Quick-Med Technologies president Bernd Liesenfeld said,"This allows us to offer our partners a very well protected license position for our unique hydrogen peroxide based antimicrobial, which is already EPA-registered."
