Trovotechs Silver Innovation

Posted by on October 1, 2016 in General |

Already the ancient Romans was known that silver has antibacterial properties. The TROVOtech from Bitterfeld-Wolfen has rediscovered the active ingredient silver for themselves. The result is called TROVOguard – an anti-microbial material with unprecedented possibilities. Silver has probably nobody expected as part of textile fibres and colours. “We modify the ground glass and replace the sodium ions in the glass for silver ions through our special process”, explains managing director Hans-Jurgen Voss the process steps. “As a result we get Ionic Silver into the glass particles up to three percent.” The Ionic silver acts as inorganic, sanitary and environmentally acceptable biocide with good long-term effect in the finished product. Silver is a precious metal, which is why often the question arises about the cost. Because the amount of silver is but vanishingly small, also uses for which arise bulk products, such as textiles, cleaning cloths, carpets and floor documents.

Much is possible. “With TROVOguard equipped textile fibers are certified as suitable for wound dressings and tested also by the dermatological Institute of the University Clinic in Jena”, Voss. The antibacterial glass particles are directly in the fibers, while other similarly equipped fibres are usually coated. “And every coating washes of course faster.” One of the first developments of the company was, however, a fungus-resistant silicone. Two years, the company tested the grout in the thermal baths of Bad Sulza – with positive results. “We have also one and a half years run a large test field in the Kaiserstuhl in a wine cellar. There we have demonstrated that the colors equipped with TROVOguard stay longer mushroom free than all comparable products”, explains Hans-Jurgen Voss a different approach. “This is true even for a wine cellar, where the fungus by several fungal strains is extreme.” Because TROVOtech itself produces no products, looking for suitable partners – the companies and, where appropriate, brings Customers directly. “When the silicone we have been successful, because we already had customers who just wanted to have equipped its spas so.
