ANTI BACTERIAL TREATMENTS

 

The goal of an anti-odor treatment is to keep a garment smelling fresh, enabling multiple wears between washes and preventing the buildup of persistent odor over time, making sure the garment has a long life.

Nimbus currently uses HeiQ® Fresh durable odor control additive on select styles.
HeiQ® Fresh is a silver-ion-based odor-control additive. While some silver-containing technologies can have adverse environmental impacts, we have carefully chosen this technology because it is able to provide good performance with
minimal environmental impact.
