HMT, the companies said, “provides 95% filtration efficiency at the one micron particle size – a performance level unmatched by traditional tightly woven materials.”
“Aller-Ease with DuPont HMT will ensure that allergy and asthma sufferers get the best night’s rest possible,” said Michael Guidry, vp of product development at ATC.
In related news, ATC said its Aller-Ease branded pillows, pillow protectors and mattress protectors have received the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, after undergoing rigorous testing by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute.
