for SILVERPLUS® products

The family brand SILVERPLUS® combines application-specific as well as article-specific antimicrobial products. As with other antimicrobial products, the chemical basis is not crucial for its classification as biocide. However, marketing attributes of such a product (such as antimicrobial, antibacterial, bacteriostatic, amongst others) are decisive. These marketing attributes as well as the positioning of the customers’ final articles in the respective consumer market are crucial for substrates functionalised with SILVERPLUS®.

Due to the fact that the use of articles finished with SILVERPLUS® can vary extremely, the customer of SILVERPLUS® himself should examine, test and conduct marketing research - despite the information, recommendations, test results, sample, care, labelling and processing instructions as well as marketing advice provided by RUDOLF GROUP. Therefore, every customer of SILVERPLUS® is responsible for his own specific use, further processing, labelling, marketing (see abovementioned marketing attributes) etc. of substrates finished with SILVERPLUS®. RUDOLF GROUP - Rudolf GmbH as well as its respective national subsidiaries, representations, etc. - does not assume any guarantee and/or liability for consequences of examinations and tests or similar omitted by the customer. Furthermore, RUDOLF GROUP does not assume any liability for non-authorised additional formulations of SILVERPLUS®.

SILVERPLUS® is a non-medical product. It is not designed or approved for the direct internal or external use on humans, animals or plants. This means that it must neither be taken directly (e.g. in form of drops) nor be applied directly onto the body (e.g. in form of creams, lotions), nor be recommended for this field of application. Moreover, SILVERPLUS® is not approved for food contact materials. It is explicitly warned against the claim of an antimicrobial effect on other surfaces due to a fabric treated with SILVERPLUS®. Depending on the respective national, European, federal or similar legalisation, that means that this textile article turns itself a biocide and has to be separately authorised as biocidal-active product.

SILVERPLUS® is marketed worldwide. The claims, attributes and statements in this brochure serve as general information and orientation. Due to possibly varying national, European, federal or similar legislation, not all information given in this brochure will be valid in all countries.

In some cases, the respective national legislation may restrict the fields of application and technical claim of SILVERPLUS®. The customer has to check this individually and assume the responsibility.

SILVERPLUS® must only be used and marketed in accordance with the official local agencies’ directives and the specifications on their labels. Depending on the legislation applied in the respective country, substrates finished with SILVERPLUS® have to be registered or authorised by the responsible local agency. RUDOLF GROUP - Rudolf GmbH as well as its respective national subsidiaries, representations etc. - does not assume liability, if substrates finished with SILVERPLUS® have not been authorised or registered. The responsibility lies exclusively with the person distributing substrates finished with SILVERPLUS®.
