Protection against corona with fully antiviral apparel


To manufacture a viroblocked jacket, the 5 textile companies 2A SpA (Italy), Coats Plc (UK), Vagotex Windtex SpA (Italy), Sitip SpA (Italy) and HeiQ Materials AG (Switzerland) have joint forces to form Just 5. The multi-functional and fashionable jacket Just 5 provides very good garment solution for resuming normal life by protecting the wearer from spoilage by contaminating microorganisms in just 5 minutes.

 This jacket is featuring HeiQ Viroblock technology in all the components.
The HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 that has been developed by HeiQ is a new technology that is effective against corona viruses thanks to its antibacterial and antiviral properties. HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is a unique combination of vesicle and silver technologies designed to inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria and viruses. The vesicle technology targets lipid-enveloped viruses, e.g. coronavirus, providing rapid virus deactivation, while the silver technology inhibits the replication of both bacteria and viruses.
Zippers are touched often throughout the day. The self-sanitizing zippers 2A Nyguard Nyshield will restore its usability in just 5 minutes after every touch. Sewing threads from Coats add anti-microbial and anti-viral properties to every stitch. The Sitip warp-knitted fabric shields the hands when touching potentially contaminated surfaces. And the Windtex Vagotex fabric is a breathable, water-repellent and wind-resistant fabric, which is also treated with HeiQ Viroblock.
