anti-bacteria Rhovyl As fiber for bedding

The properties most needed for really hygienic and comfortable bedding are: thermal insulation, non-flammability, antibacterial effectiveness, anti dust-mite action. Rhovyl developed two fibers with these advantages: Rhovyl'As® antibacterial and Rhovyl'A.S.+®.

The natural non-flammability derives from the basic polymer used and provides effective protection from fire risks caused by negligence with a cigarette or a lighted match, or other dangers.

These two fibers are also the right answer where warmth and perfect protection from the cold are required along with good evacuation of natural moisture. They also prevent the development of bacteria thanks to the antibacterial agent introduced into the core of the fiber before extrusion. Finally, Rhovyl'A.S.+® eliminates in 8 days the dust mites that are the cause for most allergies.

Thanks to the strong bonds between molecules of the polymer and the antibacterial and anti dust-mite agents, Rhovyl'As® antibacterial and Rhovyl'A.S.+® fibers retain their properties, even after frequent washings. This efficiency has been tested by independent organizations.


Rhovyl'As® antibacterial and Rhovyl'A.S.+® can be used directly by blown carded laps or bubble stuffing for articles of bedding. They are also suitable for mattress covers and under sheets, either knitted or non-woven. They are very good for making sheets, continental quilts coverings and pillow cases. The great names in bedding markets are already showing their confidence in Rhovyl® fiber: Willefert, PEG, Faratex, Platt & Hill…
