A.M.Y.® - A.M.Y.® is Unifi's performance yarn providing permanent antimicrobial protection. A.M.Y. incorporates a silver ceramic additive providing durable antimicrobial performance for the life of the textile product. Unifi's proprietary process embeds the additive into the polymer matrix during manufacturing, creating a yarn with inherent antimicrobial properties.
  AEGIS Excaliber® - Developed by Microban International Ltd., AEGIS Excalibur® technology is designed for footwear and apparel, combining antimicrobial and an odor absorbing functionality. Excalibur’s proprietary bonding process provides optimal antimicrobial performance when applied to polyester fabrics and fibers. Specifically, the microbes’ negatively- charged cells are attracted to Excalibur’s positive charge, and when they meet, Excalibur punctures the offending cell membrane to help kill the microbes, making the environment inhospitable for them to grow. Excalibur is highly durable and reduces odor and stain causing microbes, and prolongs product deterioration for up to 40 home launderings. Lastly, the formulation is easily incorporated into typical fabric and fiber manufacturing processes without extra steps or special equipment
