Polygiene, a leader in odour control technologies, has announced that its new Canadian partner Stormtech, with presence in Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Russia and Middle East, is launching face covers with Polygiene ViralOff in the form of masks, gaiters and bandanas. The initial order is 500,000 pieces and demand for these has been high from the start.
Stormtech has created a mask collection with the best in technical apparel paired with the best in protective face coverings. With distribution via outdoor retailers, major retailers and a direct-to-consumer website, Stormtech gets a global spread of its products. “We have spent the last few months designing a mask that works for all-day wear, as well as high output activities. As we were looking for an effective solution to treat knit face coverings to enhance antimicrobial performance, we got in contact Polygiene via our UK customers that recommended ViralOff. After having done a subsequent study of the technology we decided to treat our entire collection of textile face covers with ViralOff,” CEO Blake Annable from Stormtech, said in a press release.
“Stormtech is a great partner that has managed to design a face cover that works in all situations and that is ‘self-cleaning in regard to microbes,” Polygiene CEO Ulrika Björk, said.
“With ViralOff, over 99 per cent of the microbes in the textile are reduced within two hours, which means that you can let the product rest and within two hours it is good to go again. In addition, it also reduces the need to wash and makes the masks last longer,” Björk said. “We are impressed by their product solutions and hope that we together can develop products that are smart, both for the user and the environment. And finally, their 1:1 initiative where they donate outdoor apparel to introduce youth to the outdoors, really makes a difference,” Björk said in the release.
ViralOff protects treated fabrics from microbial contamination but does not protect against infection or disease.
