Huntsman to use Silpure by Thomson Research
March 30, 2007,
Toronto--Thomson Research Associates (TRA) said chemical manufacturer Huntsman Textile Effects will help develop new applications for TRA’s antimicrobial Silpure technology to be used in a range of its products.
Silpure utilizes the natural ability of silver to limit the growth of odor-causing bacteria, and is ideal for surface application to textiles, the companies said.
TRA president Dr. Laval Yau said, “We believe that Silpure’s huge potential as a ground-breaking new product will be fully realized by this alliance with Huntsman, with its unmatched resources and proven track record in sales to global industries.”
