Lion’s HAIR-TEC+® range is based on our industry leading 3mm and 5mm mesh sizes. Featured products in this range use patent pending technology, which sees the world’s first use of antibacterial powers for Hairnets and Beard Snoods in critical environments.

These Hairnets and Beard Snoods use Prolen Siltex® antimicrobial yarn, a highly advanced fibre that is active against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria including food industry hazard, staphylococcus aureus, regularly found at the hair, scalp and skin.

Lion’s exclusive use of antimicrobial capabilities results in the only Hairnet and Beard Snood range that combats all of the hair contamination risks identified by leading trichologists (hair and scalp specialists) in publications for the food industry in 2014. For further information visit the Hairnet Science page.

Special use of silver ions, which are added through a modified bacteriostatic agent, applied to the core of the Prolen Siltex® yarn at polymer stage, are the key to inhibiting the spread of bacteria and reducing the potential for the food operative to be a direct source of microbial contamination.

Prolen Siltex® antibacterial yarn meets both the American Standard for Assessment of Antibacterial Finishes on Textile Materials, AATCC 100-2012 and the French Institut Francais Textile Habillement, according to standard ISO/CD 20743 absorption method (2004).

The water absorption index of Prolen® Siltex is almost nil (just 0.01% at 65% air humidity and a temperature of 20 degrees Celsuis). Its fibres transport humidity to the surface from where it gradually evaporates to give a cooling and drying effect.
