Questions & Answers

ViralRepel prevents viruses and bacteria from persisting on textiles, reducing up to 99% of viral load.
ViralRepel also provides better hygiene and reduced odour, as any adhered bacteria are deactivated and unable to grow.
ViralRepel accelerates the deactivation of the virus on the fabric surface by interacting with key viral proteins.
It has a safe bacteriostatic effect acting against a large number of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) as well as some yeasts and micro-fungi types. The high-tech functionalization effectively reduces the development of odour caused by bacteria as it acts on the bacterial cell membrane, which inhibits the function of the microorganism.
Treated fabrics were tested against viruses in accordance with ISO 18184:2019, a standard test for the determination of the antiviral activity of textile products in a two-hour timespan, where it has to reduce the virus by 99%, to be approved effectiveness on textiles.
Tests show a reduction of viral load by up to 99% on treated PES textiles. The tests were conducted using a feline coronavirus possessing structures and mechanisms reminiscent of SARS-CoV-2, thus facilitating inferences about COVID-19.
Yes. This finish is durable and highly resistant to washing, maintaining its efficiency even after multiple domestic washes.
Yes. The products used in ViralRepel finish are gentle to the skin and dermatologically tested.
Our concern for environmentally conscious and responsible choices remains intact, for this reason, the products used in ViralRepel finishing are Oeko-Tex® and Bluesign® approved, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered.
The active ingredient is a polymer compound with bound silver ions. This new silver technology forms an extensive polymeric network on the fabric and is not nano-silver based. It does not release particles to the skin or the environment, presenting an excellent safety profile.
No. Our fabrics maintain their authenticity and versatility, always privileging comfort, design and performance.
Yes. We can apply ViralRepel in all fibres, cellulosic, synthetics and their blends.
