UFC Partners With Sciessent To Develop Apparel With Agion Active™ Technology
Wakefield, Mass.-based antimicrobial and odor-control technology provider Sciessent LLC has
partnered with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) — a Las Vegas-based mixed martial arts
organization — to develop a line of high-performance men’s and women’s training apparel featuring
Sciessent’s Agion Active™ anti-odor technology.
Agion Active dual-action textile treatment combines Agion® silver ion-based antimicrobial technology with a proprietary mineral-based technology that pulls in and eliminates ambient or absorbed odors not caused by bacteria. The treatment is applied as a fabric finish, and its odor-absorbing agent regenerates during laundering.
The new UFC apparel line featuring Agion Active will debut in early 2013.
