Antimicrobial

Aegle Gear is treated with Protx2 ™, a proprietary technology that provides long-term effective control of microorganisms.

Safe & Effective...Even After 100 Washes

Protx2™ has no skin irritation issues and is more environmentally friendly than silver and quaternary ammonium compounds. Protx2™ has EPA registration both federally and in all states.* The best part is Aegle Gear apparel will continue to offer the best antimicrobial protection in the industry even after 100 washings.

Fluid Resistant

Our quick drying, fluid-resistant fabric helps reduce the chance of contaminants infecting a wearer, while resisting stains from everyday use.

*EPA-regulated products containing Protx2™ are used solely to protect the finished product itself from microbial growth and odor. Protx2™ products do not have any associated public health claims.​

How Protx2 Works with Aegle Gear Healthcare Performance Apparel

1. Disruption of the cell wall coupling enzyme

Protx2™ halts the addition of the main building block of a cell wall. By blocking further development, as the cell wall degrades, there is no mechanism in place by which to repair or replace those weak wall components. Over time the cell wall will just fall apart.

2. Disruption of the respiratory cycle

Protx2™ binds to the nutrients Manganese and Zinc, making them unable to be processed normally by a cell. If the cell cannot bind to the nutrients, the cell starves to death for lack of nutrition.

3. Inhibition of ATP synthesis

Every cell in the body requires energy to survive, grow, and multiply. A cell gains energy through the conversion of molecules into ATP. The process of converting energy requires Hydrogen ions, like gasoline in a car for combustion. Protx2™ prevents the uptake of Hydrogen ions by the cell, therefore starving the engine of the fuel it requires; in this case, the production of ATP for energy.
