Viruses-inactive Textiles & covid 19
The world is facing an unprecedented crisis due to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic which has spurred innovation in fabrics with antiviral properties. COVID-19 can be caught by breathing in droplets of body fluids expelled from an infected person as he or she coughs, sneezes, or speaks. It is also possible to catch the virus by touching a surface such as clothing that has been contaminated by droplets of body fluids landing on it and then touching the eyes, nose, or mouth.
The researchers also found the textile is one of the main vectors for transmission for viruses and bacteria and remains active on it for up to 72 hours. Thus, the fabrics with antiviral properties play a vital role in preventing the spread of the disease and ensuring safety no matter for health care workers or citizens.
The viruses-inactive fabric collection designed as a barrier
Yuantex & Hsttex launched the viruses-inactive fabric collection, which combined high-density woven fabrics and laminated fabrics with the Ag+ viruses-inactive chemical. This collection provided an excellent barrier function to block the transport of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) particles. It directly inactivates the virus and bacterias on the surface of the textile to avoid the potential for re-transmission of pathogens from textiles.
Surfaces contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) particles can infect a person who touches them and then touches their face. Our viruses-inactive fabrics are suitable for packable outwear, which will not only help to reduce the risk of viral and bacterial persistence on dry inanimate surfaces but also provides the optimal breathability and durable water repellent to keep the fabric surface dry and clean.
Our viruses-inactive fabrics can reduce high amounts of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) particles by up to 99.9 % within a few hours and pass the AAMI Level 3, according to a report released by HeiQ, and Sciessent. Moreover, the efficacy remains 99.9% after 30 times washes.
