Fitness wear brand Dcore invests in Polygiene Odor Control TechnologyAfter a three-year test period, the Swedish fitness wear clothing brand Dcore is investing in Polygiene Odor Control Technology, which will be featured in the company’s expanded range of workout wear.
With the focus on odour control, the fitness clothing manufacturer Dcore, primarily known for its high quality gym and fitness apparel sold online, now treats about 90% of its workout wear with Polygiene Odor Control Technology.
“I am really pleased with how well Polygiene works to make our workout clothes odour-free and how environmentally friendly Polygiene is compared to other alternatives,” says Dcore’s CEO Adam Tell. Now Dcore is expanding its product range and complementing online sales clothing with sales through traditional brick-and-mortar retail stores.
Positive environmental impact
The Polygiene Odor Control Technology treatment is permanent and is said to last at least 100 washes despite the fact that only a very small amount of silver salt is used, according to the manufacturer. The odour-control supplier guarantees functionality throughout the lifetime of the garment.
In addition, Polygiene Odor Control Technology meets the requirements of European Union REACH regulations and certified according to the environment, health and safety standards of bluesign and Oeko-Tex for environment, health and safety issues.
“A positive environmental impact of using Polygiene-treated workout clothes is that they can be washed less frequently. This helps reduce water and energy consumption as well as fabric wear and tear, making garments last longer,” the company explains.
“Dcore’s investment in Polygiene speaks volumes for our company,” commented Christian von Uthmann, CEO, Polygiene. “We value long-term customer relationships and appreciate the strengthening collaboration with a brand of Dcore’s high calibre."
Polygiene odour control technology was originally developed for the treatment of plastic materials and industrial flooring, but today most of the company's customers are premium clothing brands. The technology is especially popular among sports and outdoor clothing brands, and has been used by key players such as Adidas, Athleta, Millet, Patagonia and Vaude.
