AQA WOOL O3 Ozone Wool™

The world’s first Ozone-treated, Shrink-resistant, Environmentally Friendly wool

Shrink-resistant processes have generally been done to remove the scales and to coat the surface of wool fibers with resin (BAP treatment). However, these methods impair the scales of wool fibers and spoil the wool’s soft handle and inherent properties of wool.

ECO-WASH process modifies only the tips of the scales with Ozone (O3) without causing serious damage to wool fibers and shrink-resistance and excellent washability are kept unimpaired. ECO-WASH is such an innovative treatment and the world’s very first environmentally friendly and shrink-resistant process.

Benefits of the treatment with Ozone (O3)

Given its oxidizing power, ozone is used to whiten and disinfect:

  • disinfects water in aqueducts and water for bottling
  • disinfects surfaces in contact with food products
  • disinfects the air from mould and yeast spores
  • disinfects foodstuffs from mould and yeast spores
  • cleans and whitens fabrics
  • BAP treated WOOL (BAP Bisulfite Adduct Polyurethan-Polymer.

  • AQA-WOOL O3 retains its original water repellency.

  • No-Museling and Chlorine-free Washable Wool

  • The world’s first Ozone-treated, Shrink-resistant, Environmentally Friendly wool
