A true innovation in water repellency for clothing of polyester, polyamide and cotton-based textiles. PFC Free*
Personal protective textiles needed, specially nowadays, in healthcare or hospitals must fulfil many performance requirements, where one of the most important properties is the resistance against fluids. Creating a barrier against fluids is needed to avoid skin contact with infective contaminants.
Ideally, medical textiles and clothing should be treated with additives proving some barrier, anti-bacterial and viral reduction on the textile.
Archroma has the expertise and technology systems to make sure that your clothes are safe.
A repellent treatment of the textile helps to create a barrier effect on the surface and to allow less droplets sticking to the outer layer of the mask by minimizing contact between a potentially infectious agent and the fabric.
Protection with Nuva® N
Protection with Smartrepel® Hydro
An antimicrobial treatment provides additional protection, better hygiene and reduced odor, as any adhered bacteria are deactivated and unable to grow. In medical hygiene this is very important as multi-resistant MRSA is a common threat nowadays and adds a risk to any virus-infected person who is hospitalized.
SANITIZED AG, our partner for hygiene technologies, aids measures to promote hygiene management.
Archroma has you covered with potentially life-saving chemistry, in the outer layer, that helps to create a barrier against contaminated sneezes and droplets, and with antimicrobial treatments for the middle layer that provides additional material protection for better hygiene and comfort. The inner layer is usually kept chemical-free to avoid skin irritation.
COVID-19 transmits from people to people due to water-based droplets transportation.
The virus can adhere to various surfaces, and can be carried by breath vapor and saliva droplets.
When our daily lives return to normal again, it is likely that masks will be part of our regular equipment. We will need to be protected with a comfortable and efficent face mask.
Archroma has the expertise and technology systems to make sure that your mask have you covered.
