Garmon, the chemical solutions brand for the denim and fashion industry, has introduced 'Safe Wear' a line of products that gives extra protection to garments. This is Garmon’s first endeavor into performance finishing, that provides solutions for the industrial laundry and manufacturing processes that address consumers’ demand for safety.
The goal of Garmon’s new Safe Wear line is to make people feel safe and comfortable living their lives outdoors again. “In a few months, the world has changed in a way that no one expected, and things we once considered normal – like eating in restaurants or taking public transportation – are now considered risky,” Kimberly Nelson, president of Kemin Textile Auxiliaries, said in a press release. 
Being based in Italy and San Marino, we have seen firsthand the tremendous impact of the pandemic. People want to protect themselves as much as possible, and that includes the garments they wear.”
The Safe Wear line has been designed to include different technologies, levels of protection and price points to suit all the needs of the textile industry and consumers. The Safe Wear product line includes: HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03; Garmon Sani-tex; and Garmon Elam Sani-tex.
HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is the most advanced product in the Safe Wear line. Created by HeiQ, a Swiss company of which Kemin Industries is part owner, HeiQ Viroblock has a strong, patent-pending antiviral and antibacterial effect against enveloped viruses – including coronaviruses – and bacteria.
HeiQ Viroblock has been designed to stay active on treated garments for 30 gentle domestic washes, ensuring safety for the consumer that lasts for a good part of the garment’s life.  
Two of the other products in the Safe Wear line, Sani-tex and Elam Sani-tex, are easy solutions to remove germs and bacteria from garments, ensuring hygiene standards. Both have been designed to guarantee an effective, immediate action while maintaining a very competitive price point.
Garmon suggested that due to their composition and based on some of the most useful and versatile active sanitising contents, the application of Sani-tex and Elam Sani-tex on garments removes a variety of microorganisms and different types of viruses, in particular lipophilic viruses (eg herpes simplex, vaccinia, influenza and adenovirus). Using Sani-tex and Elam Sani-tex helps both laundries and brands provide consumers a finished product that is safe and respectful of their health.
