Guardian with Microban®

Guardian Antimicrobial Polyester and Nylon Thread

Guardian with Microban® Antimicrobial Product Protection is the first thread on the market with Microban® technology that helps prevent the uncontrolled growth of bacteria, which can cause stains, odors, and product degradation. Surface fabrics can be wiped clean to effectively remove dirt and impurities, however, the seams in many applications are typically unable to be cleaned and sanitized because of the crevices that are naturally created during the sewing process. The seam offers a haven for dirt and bacterial growth.

Quality Thread has partnered with Microban® technology to create a product utilizing technology which inhibits the growth of microbes which lead to premature product failure and keeps the seams cleaner for longer in sewn upholstery.
