Nolla Silver Polymer Technology

Silver is a powerful antimicrobial substance used to fight bacteria, viruses and mold for more than 2000 years. Nolla’s silver polymer technology is the next step in the evolution of antimicrobial silver. Safe, economical and highly effective, Nolla is the platform for a new generation of antimicrobial products.

Why silver?

Silver is a highly attractive choice for an antimicrobial agent: its toxicity to mammals is exceptionally low, but at the same time it is extremely toxic to microbes.

Additional benefit of silver is that it is a broad spectrum biocide, which means that microbes can’t develop a resistance to it.

Due to its beneficial qualities, silver has been used in different forms to eliminate microbes for thousands of years. Currently, silver is being used in anything from water purification to medical applications.

What is Nolla?

Nolla technology uses a polymer backbone as the carrier and distribution agent of ionic silver.

Nolla’s unique self-organizing structure results in an optimal surface area for antimicrobial silver ions, stability and outstanding adhesion properties to different surfaces. Nolla is the only true silver polymer available today without nano particles. It is a viscous liquid and soluble to water and alcohols. All this equals performance benefits never before seen in antimicrobial silver products.

There are several different Nolla grades available. In the biocide grade Nolla silver polymer, the active component is either silver (Ag), silver chloride (AgCl) or silver nitrate (AgNO3). In cosmetic grade Nolla, the active component is silver oxide (Ag2O). The choice of active component guarantees the best performance in different applications and offers regulatory flexibility.

In Nolla the active component is dispersed evenly in ionic level to the carrier matrix, a skin-hydrating polymer. This attaches the active silver component as a self-organizing thin film on any surface, providing both an immediate antimicrobial effect and a long-lasting antimicrobial protection.

Thanks to Nolla’s patented dispersion technology, only a very small amount of silver is required for the full antimicrobial effect. This explains how Nolla can eliminate up to 99.99999% of microbes and also be highly cost effective, safe to use and skin-friendly all at the same time.

What can Nolla be used for?

Nolla’s unique qualities make it the ideal choice for a wide variety of antimicrobial products from consumer cosmetics to medical applications.

This amount of biocidal Nolla concentrate is enough for 120 foamer bottles (50ml) of Hand Sanitizer Foam.

More skin friendly and effective than alcohol, Nolla is the optimal choice for hand and skin sanitizers and medical applications (see Nolla Pharmaceutical for medical applications).

Gentle on surfaces, including textiles, Nolla is used in surface disinfectant sprays, shoe deodorants, textile sprays and others.

Cosmetic-grade Nolla is suitable even for sensitive skin and perfect for effective but safe consumer products like deodorants, shampoos, lotions… Nolla can be used wherever an effective and safe antimicrobial agent is needed.

Nolla offers numerous practical benefits over older antimicrobial technologies. These remarkable benefits come with a very low price tag: compared to other antimicrobial technologies, like alcohol, using Nolla can be up to 95% cheaper.

Taking advantage of the Nolla benefits

You can license Nolla technology.

Like Nolla technology itself, the licensing package is cost effective. It includes more than 30 product formulations and permits global sales and production of all Nolla biocide and cosmetic products.

Nolla is the future

Nolla is the future of antimicrobial products from sanitizers to cosmetics to industrial use and beyond.
