How is PermaNet® 2.0 produced?
PermaNet® 2.0 is warp-knitted from strong, 100% polyester yarns. Our excellent production techniques provide PermaNet® 2.0 with uniformly woven netting material. To set the net and prevent shrinkage, the fabric is placed on a stenter and exposed to high heat. The next step, Deltamethrin-impregnation, uses a continuous industrial process that secures exact concentration and equal distribution of the insecticide, guaranteeing the long-lasting effects of PermaNet® 2.0. Lastly, the netting material is cut and sewn into various shapes and sizes that represent ready-to-use PermaNet® 2.0.
Every process is subject to extensive inline controls, which ensure that every finished PermaNet® 2.0 bed net meets company specifications and WHO recommendations.
