Hudson Industries, DuPont Launch Allergen Barrier
March 12, 2007-- Home Textiles Today,
Hudson Industries, Inc. and its Science of Sleep brand has announced a new exclusive partnership with the DuPont Company in launching a membrane technology to be incorporated into luxury allergen barrier bedding products.
Called HMT (Hybrid Membrane Technology), this patented technology provides an efficient barrier to common allergens such as pet dander, pollen, and dust mites, as well as viral allergens, fungal spores, and most microscopic allergens.
Hudson Industries vp Lonnie Scheps notes that the bedding fabric is fully breathable, soft, quiet, and luxurious. The company has found that the level of protection is very durable, with tests showing more than 50 washings reduce the effectiveness by only 5%. Hudson is launching at the March 11-13 Housewares Show in Chicago; product shipments to retailers will commence later this month.
