WHAT WR/AB OFFERS
WORKS ON ANY FABRIC
Antimicrobial Hygiene Protection
Sanitized® T99-19 and Sanitized® T11-15 textile products were tested against viruses (in accordance with ISO 18184:2019) and showed a reduction of viral load by up to 99% on treated PES textiles. Tests were conducted using feline coronavirus possessing structures and mechanisms reminiscent of SARS-CoV-2, thus facilitating inferences about COVID-19. A positive viral load reduction on a treated article has to be tested according to national legislation requirements. The chemical technology used in WR/AB spray solution is provided by Archroma Management LLC.
How Does It Work?
Droplets emitted by humans when sneezing or coughing are water-based and hydrophilicmicro-sized drops with a maximum 100-micron diameter. Coming from human saliva, they contain many different body-based particles and can also carry bacteria and viruses.
When comparing the existing barrier technologies that are widely accepted in apparel and technical textiles, polyfluorinated chemicals (PFC) provide superior functionalities as they not only protect against water but also fat or oil-based liquids, and their ability to reduce the surface energy of textile materials are much higher. This high efficacy prevents droplets from adhering and allows them to easily roll off the article surface, thus avoiding contact with the skin surface.
