Duranet® is a long-lasting insecticidal net (LLIN) made of polyethylene, which makes it much stronger than polyester or cloth nets.
With Duranet LLINs, the insecticide is incorporated into the fiber and is control released over time. Just the right amount of insecticide migrates to the surface over the product's entire lifespan. As a result, Duranets do not need to be retreated with insecticide like traditional surface treated polyester nets. With insecticide incorporated into the net fibers instead of on the surface, Duranet allows for the safe transport and handling of large quantities of nets.
Compared to traditional mosquito nets, Duranets are slightly rigid, which allows for increased air flow through the nets. As a result, users remain cool while they sleep. Duranet LLINs are available in a variety of colors, including dark colors, which do not need to be washed as frequently as white nets. Duranet® LLINs will maintain their effectiveness for a lifetime of up to 5 years, which is almost twice as long as the lifespan of all polyester nets on the market.
