Acteev® to Exhibit at 2023 Functional Fabric Fair Showcasing Textile Innovation

Award-winning Acteev combines the antimicrobial protection of zinc with high-performing specialty nylon.

Acteev, an award-winning, odor-fighting textile technology, will exhibit at this year’s Functional Fabric Fair in Portland, Oregon on April 4-5, 2023. The performance textile line will be on full display, giving prospective designer, product, purchasing and material partners the opportunity to experience the first-of-its-kind, zinc-powered technology.  

Acteev is working with high-fashion designers, entertainment personalities and professional athletic brands to bring innovative, sustainable visions to life. Currently, major brand partner collections include sustainable, high-performing tennis, yoga and golf athletic wear from InPhorm; odor-free socks created by puberty-positive, Gen-Z-favorite OOMLA; odor-free and UV resistant Suray sun shirt by Coalatree and more. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience our fabrics and sample garments hands-on,feeling how  luxuriously soft they are on the skin yet rugged enough for tough outdoor conditions,” Nikki Huffman, global business development director for Acteev, said. “The demand for sustainable, premium products has never been greater. With the latest antimicrobial innovation, our textiles give customers confidence their clothing and equipment are protected by keeping their garments and gear odor-free and safe from mildew.” 

Proud recipient of an ISPO Textrends Top 10 Award and Outdoor Retailer Innovation Award, Acteev showcases the next chapter of environmentally safe antimicrobial zinc ion protection.  This technology combined with its superior nylon 6,6, creates textiles that naturally combat odor and mildew-causing bacteria, mold and fungi while providing up to 50+ UPF protection. Acteev protects textiles – from base layers and outerwear to sleeping bags and more – using one of nature’s own elements.

Plus, unlike chemical applications that are coated or sprayed on, Acteev does not rely on any post-production treatment or after-market process. Instead, Acteev’s zinc ions are embedded directly into the matrix of the molecule, providing protection throughout the life of the product. This means Acteev Performance Textiles require less water in the manufacturing process while ensuring they remain as effective as day one.
