HeiQ creates some of the most effective, durable and high-performance textile effects in the market today, which lasts upto 30 washes. Tests conducted by HeiQ on HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 in Melbourne showed that treated fabric achieved 99.99 per cent reduction of the virus.
The research project involved a disinfection test protocol simulating real-life interaction of small aerosol droplets contaminating clothing with a known concentration of SARS-CoV-2 virus. The virus was contacted with the sample fabric for a few minutes followed by measurement of remaining infectious SARS-CoV-2 viruses.
When the fabric sample was treated with HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03, no infective viruses were left after a few minutes and the result indicated a SARS-CoV-2 virus reduction of 99.99 per cent relative to the inoculum control.
"Being market leaders in the suitings space, the Donear Group has endeavored and perfected the touch and feel of this fabric which continues to remain as is pre and post the treatment. The selvedge with Neo Tech antiviral fabrics will become a seal of safety and protection for the times to come," a Donear Group press release said.
The Group is very confident that the combined power of Neo Tech and HeiQ Viroblock will prove to be a game-changer for the Indian textile industry, especially in the performance fabrics category.
“The confirmation of antiviral activity of HeiQ Viroblock against SARS-CoV-2 is an important milestone. This data forms part of our ongoing efforts to help provide textiles with greater levels of protection against viruses and contribute to efforts towards mitigation of the global pandemic. We are delighted to partner with the prestigious Donear Group and to extend our joint products in the Indian sub-continent. Neo Tech is a highly advanced fashion-tech developed by Donear group and we are sure that we will be exchanging lots of notes between us," said HeiQ Group CEO Carlo Centonze.
"What sets our product apart is that it kills the viruses and microbes within minutes, thereby reducing the risk of contamination drastically. The product has been tested and certified by various world-renowned labs including the prestigious ISO 18184 rapid test," Centonze added.
“We have always wanted to extend our forte in poly viscose and worsted fabrics – be it for trousers, jackets or suits. This partnership has added another feather in our cap for breakthrough technology with anti-corona fabrics that shows its effects within minutes rather than hours! I strongly believe that the antiviral fabrics will boost our established group turnover (of ₹1300 crore) by at least 15 per cent,” said Donear Group MD Rajendra Agarwal.
