BI-OME Antimicrobial Yarn Coating
Bi-Ome® is a non-migrating antimicrobial coating on the carpet fibres which kills the micro-organisms when they come into contact with the fibre. Bi-Ome® doesn’t lose strength over time and creates an environment to which microorganisms can’t adapt.
Bi-Ome® is important for anyone needing to eliminate odours and increase health protection. It is ideal for sectors where carpeting is used near or around food and drink, such as in the healthcare and hospitality sectors.
