1st Place Worthy Innovation

Ascend Performance Materials’ Acteev Protect antimicrobial odor-resistant fabric technology has been named a winner at the 2021 Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards. The awards recognize new and groundbreaking technologies used in winter apparel, outdoor and sports products and materials.

What Is Acteev Technology?

At its core, Acteev incorporates the antimicrobial benefits of zinc ions straight into the molecules of its superior nylon 6,6 yarn and fabric.

Journey Into the Great Unknown with Acteev

Superior design and embedded zinc ion technology enhances your gear’s performance while providing you with the freedom and peace of mind that comes with Acteev materials.

Protection Meant to Last

Unlike silver or copper antimicrobial technology, Acteev’s zinc ions are embedded into the product instead of coated on. Not only is this production more sustainable and safe for consumers, but it’s built to last. Even after 50 washes, our zinc ion technology is still just as effective as the first day it’s used.

*Acteev’s antimicrobial technology is embedded to protect the product. The product does not protect users or others against disease-causing bacteria, viruses, germs or other organisms.
