SportCoatings(TM) and NABCA Introduce FabricAide(TM) to High Schools

Nationally

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Industry leading SportCoatings(TM) and the North American Booster Club Association (NABCA), enthusiastically introduce the FabricAide(TM) Boosters Program, a breakthrough program that allows parents to raise funds while being proactive against the threat of microbial contamination.

FabricAide is a laundry additive that imparts a layer of active antimicrobial onto all sports laundry including towels, socks, and equipment bags. On old and new fabrics alike, FabricAide remains active 24/7 and is long lasting. It will not change the properties of the fabric and inhibits odor and stain causing bacteria from growth, eliminating the famous "sweat smell."

"With FabricAide, parents can obtain priceless peace-of-mind that their student athletes are being protected with the most advanced antimicrobial available in the industry. This is an easy, unique, affordable program that has benefits that go beyond just raising healthy profits," says Craig Andrews, CEO of SportCoatings.

According to the August 2007 Readers Digest article Deadly Superbugs, Dr. Henry Chambers, chief of infectious diseases at San Francisco General Hospital states, "People are bent out of shape about bird flu, but CA-MRSA is already here and, in my opinion, ranks second only to HIV as a public health threat."

As staph and MRSA are becoming prevalent in the sports community, doctors, sport administrations and media outlets across the nation are focusing their attention on beating bacteria. FabricAide Boosters Program is a great way for parents to be proactive while simultaneously raising unparalleled funds for athletics.

"NABCA is excited to offer the FabricAide Boosters Program to parents nationally. Defending against bacteria is a must in today's sports community, and now, parents can minimize bacterial infections while also raising money," says Steve Beden, President of NABCA.

As part of the Sports Antimicrobial System(R) (SAS), a family of treatments designed to inhibit and minimize microbial contamination on all sport surfaces for extended periods, FabricAide offers antimicrobial defense to all textiles.

Powered by the AEGIS Microbe Shield(R) technology, used in medical and consumer applications for over 30 years, all SAS treatments impart invisible, odorless antimicrobial protection. Registered with the EPA, the technology will not leach any chemicals or heavy metals into the environment and will not rub off onto a player's skin. Since the microbes can not adapt to the treatments, no "super bugs" can develop.

SAS also includes TurfAide(TM) and SportsAide(R). TurfAide provides antimicrobial protection for synthetic turf systems while SportsAide is used on a wide range of sport surfaces including locker rooms, whirlpools, gym mats, and exercise equipment.
