Antiviral and antibacterial finish destroys coronavirus


With V-Block the Multi-Plot Europe GmbH, Bad Emsthal/Germany, offers an antiviral and antibacterial finish and textiles finished with V-Block.

 This is an antiviral and antibacterial finishing product for all types of fibers, especially suitable for medical nonwovens articles, mouth-nose protective masks, cloths, gloves, protective clothing, and filters, room dividers made out of fabric, curtains and furnishing textiles in hospitals, nursing homes, and hotels.
The technology of silver salt and lipid vesicles enables the binding and destruction of over 99 % of bacteria, viruses, and yeasts within minutes. The effectiveness on the corona virus was successfully tested by the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity in Melbourne/Australia. Further successful tests were carried out on H1N1, H5N1, H7N9 and RSV. V-Block is manufactured in Germany.
Due to the antibacterial effect, no odors are generated on the fabric, so there is no need for frequent washing, a benefit for the environment. V-block is odorless and a washing fastness of at least 30 washes at 40°C is given.
A washable FFP2 mask treated with V-block, shows a significant (>300 times) reduction of the virus infectivity (mist-contact). The biocide for textile applications was approved in May 2020 by the Federal Office for Occupational safety and occupational medicine for Germany.
