You probably know by now that we like to add functions to our fabrics. We always thought that beautiful fabric is just not enough, it also must make life better and easier for the user.
So, Safe Front is the name of our antibacterial technology that we apply to all Aquaclean fabrics. It kills 99,9% of bacteria and mites making it a perfect solution for users with allergy issues.
We invented the technology over 20 years ago with people suffering from allergies in mind. In the beginning, it was included in certain collections but over time it became an integral part of Aquaclean’s story and all our products. All RUSTIKA AQUACLEAN collections have been protected with Safe Front® as standard since 1999. Since March 2019, all AQUACLEAN collections have incorporated the SAFE FRONT® treatment.
For your peace of mind, Aquaclean fabrics offer a double guarantee of hygiene from the factory to your home:
On the one hand, the SAFE FRONT® component protects against viruses and bacteria as standard, effectively reducing its activity.
On the other hand, the AQUACLEAN component limits the penetration of viruses and bacteria into the fabric.
The joint formula of AQUACLEAN and SAFE FRONT® has been effective after multiple washes* and years of use. (*10 washing cycles have been tested at 30ºC, demonstrating their effectiveness)
The active component of Safe Front is a biocide based on Zinc Pyritione.
AQUACLEAN / SAFE FRONT® fabrics are currently certified in the following ISO standards:
ISO 20743:2013 8.1
Reducing bacterial activity by 99.99% after 24 hours.
For the determination of antiviral activity in textile products, demonstrating its effectiveness in more than 91% against Feline Coronavirus, an envelope virus very similar to COVID-19.
