Shiva Texyarn launches first of its kind antiviral fabrics in the Indian market.
 
"HeiQ Viroblock is a special combination of our advanced silver and vesicle technology that has been proven effective against the human coronavirus 229E with over 99.99 per cent reduction of virus. It is safe and non-toxic. A patent has been filed. We are pleased to launch this for the first time in India on PPE with Shiva Texyarn,” Carlo Centonze, CEO of HeiQ ,said in a press release.
 
“We have been at the forefront of the PPE response in the country, with our Technical Textiles Division being amongst the earliest SITRA Qualified Suppliers of PPE fabric. We have complemented Coverall manufacturing with a range of fabric masks with innovative protective systems and other components of the PPE system,” Dr Sundararaman K S, managing director of Shiva Texyarn, said.
 
The addition of HeiQ Viroblock to our manufacturing processes gives us another formidable technology in the race to provide high tech, comfortable PPE solutions.” 
 
The company is currently in the process of getting various international certifications to target the global marketplace for antiviral fabrics.
