Des Plaines, IL (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
At a time when consumers search for ways to reduce allergens and bacteria in their homes, luxury bedding manufacturer United Feather & Down introduces SilverFill™ with X-STATIC®: a revolutionary, patent-pending new fill made with X-STATIC silver fibers. United Feather & Down is the sole manufacturer of pillows, comforters, and mattress pads with X-STATIC, a patented fiber with a layer of pure silver permanently bonded to it, delivering natural, permanent protection from odor and bacteria.
Widely known and proven to be the most potent antimicrobial and odor elimination system available today, X-STATIC offers all of the benefits known for years to be inherent to pure silver, including natural, chemical-free protection against bacteria and fungi, anti-odor benefits, thermal management, and even healing and anti-static properties. SilverFill with X-STATIC combines the power of X-STATIC with United Feather & Down's best down alternative for a dynamic filling material that provides the comfort and loft of premium bedding with the unique power of X-STATIC.
While X-STATIC has been used and trusted for several years by NASA, the U.S. Army and companies such as Johnson & Johnson, this is the first time it's been used in pillows, comforters, and mattress pads.
"For more than 200 years, United Feather & Down has pioneered technology in down and down alternative bedding, and we're proud to be the first to bring the myriad benefits of X-STATIC to the bedroom," said Brandon Palmer, Co-President at United Feather & Down. "Today's consumers are not only looking for comfort and luxury in the bedroom, but a healthy environment as well - and SilverFill with X-STATIC delivers on both counts."
Benefits of United Feather & Down's SilverFill with X-STATIC include:
Antimicrobial and Anti-Odor: SilverFill with X-STATIC eliminates 99 percent of odor-causing bacteria. The 99.9 percent pure silver in X-STATIC fibers also immediately binds to ammonia and denatured proteins (both causes of odor), resulting in instant odor reduction. Prestigious institutions throughout the world have validated the antimicrobial performance and safety of X-STATIC in published medical journals.
Comfort in All Conditions: The fibers in SilverFill with X-STATIC offer the best possible thermodynamic properties, meaning SilverFill with X-STATIC bedding regulates body temperature to quickly and evenly distribute and transfer heat, improving moisture management. More simply, SilverFill with X-STATIC helps keep you warmer in the fall and winter, and cooler in the spring and summer.
Natural Protection: Bacteria growth is restricted by X-STATIC's 99.9 percent pure silver fibers, rather than chemical additives.
Proven Performance and Comfort that Lasts: SilverFill with X-STATIC is designed to last. United Feather & Down's patent pending blend of micro fiber and X-STATIC silver fibers has the loft and comfort of a premium down alternative product, providing maximum comfort that will continue for years. And SilverFill with X-STATIC is unique in that it will never lose its antimicrobial and anti-odor properties, regardless of how many times it is washed.
SilverFill with X-STATIC is available in comforters, pillows, blankets, mattress pads and other bedding products. As with each of its products, SilverFill with X-STATIC is manufactured to the exacting standards United Feather & Down has employed for more than 200 years. Products featuring SilverFill with X-STATIC were introduced to the trade during the 2007 New York Home Fashions Market, August 6th - 10th.
