Tevero becomes the first brand to launch a mask with HeiQ textile technology in India. HeiQ is a Swiss textile innovation leader for the production of masks, gloves and clothing fabric that provides the wearer safety against the virus.
The textile treated with HeiQViroblock NPJ03 technology is known to eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 viruses by 99.99 per cent within 30 minutes.
The masks and gloves produced using the technology can provide the wearer extra protection from the virus while maintaining the softness and breathability.
HeiQViroblock has been developed to inhibit growth and persistence of bacteria and enveloped viruses and textile surfaces. The technology integrates the silver technology for antiviral and antibacterial effect and the vesicle technology as a booster.
The products are made available under the collection ‘Virus Sheild’. The mask is made using two layers of soft-knitted cotton that helps in maintaining the breathability of the fabric.
The mask is treated with the anti-viral treatment on both layers to ensure complete protection. Between the layers is a filter made of melt-blown fabric that provides 99.5 per cent bacterial filtration efficiency.
“If a fabric deactivates a virus that comes into contact with it, it becomes an important line of protection in our fight against this pandemic. We intend to make these masks, gloves & fashion fabric available to all leading retailers & gamesters so that it is made more accessible in these difficult times,” said Kruti Adnani, brand representative.
