Nolla Silver Polymer Technology

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

  • Skin friendly
  • Hypoallergenic

Why silver?

Silver is an 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 and thus effective against various different pathogenic organisms such as bacteria and viruses. Silver possesses also multiple mechanisms of action, which prevents and hinders the development of resistance against it among pathogens.

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 polymeric structure results in an optimal surface area for antimicrobial silver ions, high stability, and outstanding adhesive properties to different surfaces. Nolla is the only true silver polymer available today without nanoparticles. It is a clear, viscous liquid and soluble to water and alcohols. This results in performance benefits never before seen in any antimicrobial products.

There are several different grades of Nolla silver polymer available. In the biocidal grade of Nolla silver polymer, the active component is silver chloride (AgCl).

In Nolla Silver Polymer Technology the active component is dispersed evenly on 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 an adequate antimicrobial effect. This explains how Nolla can eliminate up to 99.99999% of microbes in a skin-friendly manner.

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 biocidal/antimicrobial applications.

More skin friendly and effective than alcohol, Nolla is the optimal choice for hand 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.
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.
