India-based integrated textile manufacturer Vardhman Textiles Limited has launched a new range of fabrics with anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. The 'Travel Shield' range of fabrics are water and stain repellent, breathable and easy to care. The fabrics will help in mitigating the risk of COVID-19 when these are used for making garments.

"These fabrics will definitely make you travel safer, comfortable and stylish. Further strengthening Vardhman’s commitment towards sustainability, these fabrics are washable and reusable unlike nonwovens. Icing on the cake is that these Travel Shield range of fabrics are made from non-metal based chemistry," said Vardhman's head-Marketing Mukesh Bansal.

The new range of fabrics comes in multiple variants – 100 per cent polyester, 100 per cent viscose and a blend of cotton and polyester to provide the customers a better performing, soft and easy-care product.

For the new range, Vardhman has partnered with the pioneers of health care finishes, HealthGuard, an Australia based company for developing several healthcare finishes like anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-dust etc.

Health Guard AMIC is 99.94 per cent effective against killing coronavirus (H1N1, ISO18184 tested), SARS and influenza virus. It remains active on treated fabric even after 20 home laundering.
