Water is life!
Silvertex aqua GmbH is active in the field of water conservation. With our products we protect water from microbiological contamination and water-bearing equipment from contamination by biofilms and damage by biofouling.
Low-germ water and water hygiene
silvertex aqua GmbH develops, produces and distributes innovative solutions against bacterial contamination based on the silvertex® solution developed in Germany and internationally patented. The multiplication of waterborne germs such as E Coli, Pseudomonas, Enterococci and Legionella in stagnant or stored water renders the precious commodity unusable. It is these germs that cause diseases. Contaminated water is a source of danger for the health of humans and animals.
Protection of natural resources and the environment
The technical solution
silvertex® uses the antimicrobial (bacteriostatic and bactericidal) effect of silver ions (AG+). As early as 5,000 years ago, silver, a naturally occurring precious metal, was used by people in Mesopotamia for disinfection during surgical procedures. The ancient Romans in 300 BC used silver vessels to be able to store their food for longer periods of time. Even today, silver is used in clothing or household appliances as a germ protection. These small-scale applications are based on the principle of the release of silver ions from the silver surface on contact with liquid. silvertex® has innovatively developed this application further. We are now able to provide permanent protection against germs and biofilms for water volumes ranging from a few liters to many thousands of cubic meters. All that is required is a very low silver concentration of 5 to 20 which is emitted from a large silver surface in our spacer fabric. All this happens self-dosing without any further action. Thanks to the flexible material structure, silvertex® can be installed almost anywhere. The service life of our silvertex® system is up to 2 years, depending on the application.
Our contribution to solving global problems
Is this claim too high for a single company? We do not want to believe that. On July 28, 2010, the United Nations decided that everyone has a right to clean water and sanitation. In 2018, there were still 844 million people who had no access to clean water at all. According to the United Nations definition, "access to clean water" means that there must be sufficient clean water for personal hygiene and food preparation of acceptable quality in accessible sources within a radius of 1,000 meters or less than 30 minutes walking distance.

This is where silvertex® can put its strengths to excellent use: light, durable, very easy to install, self-dosing, no equipment or electricity required. We are convinced that the silvertex® Good Water hygiene net will solve many problems in the supply of clean water worldwide.
