EVOLUTION’s Sleep-Safe ZipCover Pillow Protectors feature EVOLON fabric. EVOLON is a soft, cottonlike fabric with incredibly tiny pores (1 micron pore size). This tight microfilament is a breathable, nonwoven fabric that provides a protective barrier against bed bugs, dust mites, and other allergens. Washing the pillow protector only makes it softer and will not remove its efficacy. EVOLON fabric can withstand repeated washings up to 203 degrees Fahrenheit (95 degrees Celsius). Sleep-Safe Zipcovers Evolution is a great complement to your high thread count sheets, offering peace of mind and a comfortable night's sleep. Out of the package, this product feels slightly stiff; however, after the very first wash, it becomes cottony and soft to the touch, yet maintains its durability. Encasing your mattress, pillows, and box springs in an allergen proof, impenetrable encasement is the simplest way to protect your sleep. Construction of our "Evolution" line is controlled in our American plant, employing highly skilled U.S. Workers.
Millions of people suffer from allergic rhinitis and asthma caused by house dust mites. House dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments like the bed, where they feed on dead skin. More than the mites themselves, their droppings and dead mite debris are the main triggers for allergic reactions. The allergenic particles can be as small as 2 microns. To avoid contact with allergens, mattresses, box springs, duvets, and pillows should be enclosed in fully zipped dust and allergen-proof encasings, washable at up to 203 degrees Fahrenheit (95 degrees Celsius).
When selecting a Sleep-Safe ZipCover Evolution pillow protector, you will need to know the dimensions of your pillow. Our pillow protectors come in a variety of sizes, including: USA Standard 21" x 27", USA Queen 21" x 31", USA King 21" x 37", UK (United Kingdom) Standard 50 cm x 75 cm , Euro Square 65 cm x 65 cm, and Euro Square 85 cm x 85 cm. There are also two packs available for the USA Standard 21" x 27", USA Queen 21" x 31", and USA King 21" x 37".
Before first use, it is recommended to machine wash the pillow protector (fully zipped up) in warm water and to tumble dry it at a medium heat setting. This will increase the fabric softness and take it from a slightly stiff feel to a suede-like texture. If there is a bed bug infestation, DO NOT REMOVE the pillow protector unless there are doubled protectors. Bed bugs should remain inside the protector for at least 5 months so that the insects and eggs die from lack of food and water. In addition to encasing pillows and mattresses, we suggest covering the box springs with our Sleep-Safe ZipCovers Encasements for full protection.
Evolon is a German-engineered microfilament fabric that provides superior protection against irritating dust mite allergens.
It is a densely constructed fabric that creates an effective physical barrier against allergens. Our mattress encasements keep the dust mite allergen debris retained under the encasement, preventing those particles from coming into contact with the allergy sufferer.
Evolon microfilament fabric has millions of "micro" channels making the fabric permerable, allowing for air and water vapor flow.
This breathable nature of the fabric allows for moisture wicking, keeping perspiration away from the skin. As an added benefit, Evolon fabric also dries very quickly.
Evolon microfilament fabric is manufactured free of the use of any binders, solvents, and PVC.
Evolon is long-lasting and durable, and the fabric itself does all the work. There is no need for any “plastic” coating or chemical treatment for it to provide its level of protection.
