Introduction

Antimicrobial Treated Textiles

Innofa’s finish has proven effective against human coronavirus (HCoV-229E)* in face mask testing,

significantly reducing viral and bacterial infectivity on contact

* The coronavirus tested is the Human coronavirus 229E and not the Covid-19

1. Mode Of Action

Destroying A Virus Cell Wall

The vesicle technology applied on our textiles targets lipid-enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus 229E*, providing rapid virus destruction,

The effective technology applied by our newest finish application inhibits the replication of both bacteria and deactivates viruses.

* The coronavirus tested is the Human coronavirus 229E and not the Covid-19

2. Safe to use

Controlled

the applied technology is tested and checked and compliant to Oekotex Standard 100 Class 1-4

The technology is EPA registered and ISO tests prove that Viruses get eliminated on the fabric

Claims need to be limited to

3. What it did on PPE

Effective in masks

Aerosol challenge test, is the antiviral test to evaluate the efficacy of protective masks

The application shows more than 10 times improved reduction of virus infectivity and was tested officially against H1N1, H5N1, H7N9, coronavirus 229E* and RSV

* The coronavirus tested is the Human coronavirus 229E and not the Covid-19

4. Effective on Textiles

Antiviral efficacy test
(ISO 18184)

ISO 18184 measures the property to give morphological change or structural damage to the surface protein of virus

A reference cloth is used to compare the efficacy of the application

Infectivity titre of virus is measured with the number of infectious viral particles present per unit volume in a cell lysate or in a solution
