Dust Mites are tiny creatures with no more than 0.3mm in length. They are very reproductive in the environment of 25oC and 75% relative humidity. Together with the dead skin that we shower off, our pillows and mattresses are perfect home for dust mites. We are sharing our pillows and mattresses with millions of dust mites. They are no harm to most of us however their feces contains potent allergens proteins which can trigger asthma, rhinitis or eczema for people that are sensitive to allergens. The best way is avoid the allergic disorder is to isolate the dust mites from their food chain and reduce our contact with the allergens.
AegisTM is using precision microweave fabric with less than 6 micron pore size between threads. It is an effective barrier to dust mites and their allergens. With high air permeability and moisture vapor transport rate, it is an effective allergen barrier with soft and comfortable feel.
