STATE COLLEGE, PA | Posted on June 20th, 2007

NanoHorizons , Inc., an emerging leader in applied nanoscale materials and solutions, today announced that Pooghe Laundry has integrated SmartSilver antimicrobial/anti-odor nanotechnology into the company's new casual cotton underwear line. SmartSilver, the smarter anti-odor and antimicrobial answer, is engineered at the nanoscale to impart permanent anti-odor/antimicrobial properties to natural and synthetic fibers and fabrics without compromising fabric integrity.

"SmartSilver's powerful antimicrobial performance simply makes Pooghe Laundry clothing more comfortable" said Steve Monte, president and CEO of Pooghe Laundry.

Our Pooghe line is an instant hit with the market because it combines comfort, style, and technology to deliver real value."

SmartSilver Nanoscale Technology

SmartSilver-enhanced products deliver the natural antimicrobial power of pure silver, without forcing designers seeking permanent anti-odor performance to compromise in other areas, such as dye performance, hand, stretch, durability, or manufacturability or environmental responsibility. SmartSilver additives are engineered to be easily used in existing textile manufacturing equipment, evenly disperse and permanently bond with fiber structures ranging from natural cotton and wool to rayon, polyester, nylon, and polypropylene.
