FTTS-FA-001 Antibacterial Textiles for General Use

Antibacterial Textiles can prevent harmful bacteria from proliferating on fabrics and thus effectively reduce bacterial infection and related pathological changes that might adversely affect human health. Therefore, antibacterial treatments are widely applied in textile industry. Antibacterial Textiles find applications in products for households, furnishings, hygiene, cleansing and automobiles. Products include towels, socks, insoles, shoe linings, underwear, sportswear, leisurewear, shirts, blouses, work wear, medical garments, bedding, non-woven products and many others. The quantitative evaluation of antibacterial activity is judged by the bacteria reduction.

With current technology in Taiwan, antibacterial textiles for general use shall possess a Bacteriostatic Activity Value of at least 2.2 for quantitative test and there shall be existence of inhibiting halos for qualitative test (halo test). Bacteria used for testing are Staphylococcus aureus and the test method applied is JIS L1902.

 

Scope

This criterion is applicable to the evaluation and testing of antibacterial activity of textile for general use. The quantitative evaluation of antibacterial activity is judged by the percentage of bacteria reduction.

Performance specification

3.1 Criteria:

Textile must achieve antibacterial activity expressed by percentage reduction of bacteria (%) to grade 2 or above on two specified test organisms, after being washed for 50, 20 cycles by an approved lab, or no washing required for disposableproduct so to meet the requirement set for FTTS-FA-001.

3.2 Washing requiremen:

Type

Washing cycles

I

Antibacterial activity after 50 washing

II

Antibacterial activity after 20 washing

III

Antibacterial activity without washing
(for disposable products)

3.3 Classification of antibacterial activit

3.4 Toxicity test:

The applicant must provide animal test reports with dermal irritation test (PII primary irritation index1000 mg/kg, no mortality nor abnormal symptom) for the antibacterial finishing reagent used for the treated textile. This can also be provided by test report copy from a third party or guarantee letter from antibacterial finishing reagent supplier.
