Cover with "Superstretch" and "Silverfresh
The Air Wave Silver Fresh mattress cover has silver strips incorporated. This inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi and thus also the formation of odors. Silver ions are currently the most effective means against bacteria and odors. They attach themselves to the fibers and do their job without causing allergic reactions and without losing their function over time. Silver ions are used as a disinfectant and therapeutic agent in wound therapy. They can reversibly inhibit silver-sensitive pathogens after a relatively long exposure time, and can also have a bacteriostatic or even bactericidal (i.e. killing) effect. The TENCEL® content also provides perfect moisture management. The optimum moisture transport of TENCEL® is unique compared to synthetic fibers. Compared to cotton, TENCEL® can absorb moisture in a controlled and regular manner. Moreover, TENCEL® absorbs 50 % more moisture than cotton.
The perfect moisture management also prevents the unrestricted proliferation of mites in bed. A test in a mattress (polyurethane foam with integrated TENCEL® powder) showed that the majority of an applied mite population dies off. With a conventional product, however, the number of mites increases 17-fold within 6 weeks. The mite concentration decreases dramatically due to the moisture management of TENCEL®. TENCEL® buffers moisture and the mites die. This is why this upholstery fabric is also particularly recommended for house dust and animal hair allergy sufferers. The pleasantly soft voluminous stretch quality is particularly elastic, hard-wearing and very dimensionally stable.
