Jones product innovation takes one more step on our journey along the green path with our new and improved AM™ antimicrobial yarns. Jones 5065 yarns are spun with fibers infused with silver nanoparticles. These extremely small particles are introduced into the polyester fiber during the extrusion process. The treatment is not topical, so the protection lasts for the life of the yarn; it will not wear or wash off.
Silver ions are non-leaching, environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-allergenic, and completely safe for human contact. Our antimicrobial yarns are ideal for wet mopping applications in food service, healthcare, and commercial facilities with limited laundering capabilities due to silver’s natural resistance to the bacteria, molds, and mildew that contribute to mop rot. The 5065 yarns resist the growth of destructive microbes that cause mop odor, yarn discoloration, yarn staining, and fiber breakdown.
