What Is Acteev Technology?

At its core, Acteev incorporates the antimicrobial benefits of zinc ions straight into the molecules of nylon 6,6 polymer. And we’ve had 70 years in the business to perfect the capabilities of nylon 6,6 when it comes to nonwovens, including spunbonds, microfibers and nanofibers plus laminated and composite materials.

Antimicrobial Protection

Safeguarded against bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Design Flexibility

Easily incorporated into your current applications and processes.

Mildew Fighting

1st Place Worthy Innovation

Ascend Performance Materials’ Acteev Protect antimicrobial odor-resistant fabric technology has been named a winner at the 2021 Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards. The awards recognize new and groundbreaking technologies used in winter apparel, outdoor and sports products and materials.

Ultimate Protection and Flexibility

Superior design and embedded zinc ion technology enhances your the performance of your nonwoven and filtration products while providing you with the freedom and peace of mind that comes with all Acteev materials.

Protection Meant to Last

Unlike silver or copper antimicrobial technology, Acteev’s zinc ions are embedded into the product instead of coated on*. Whereas coatings and finishes can negatively affect performance, Acteev layers can be incorporated into finished goods without damaging quality.

*Acteev’s antimicrobial technology is embedded to protect the product. The product does not protect users or others against disease-causing bacteria, viruses, germs or other organisms.
