Fineotex Chemical, headquartered in Mumbai, India, is to become the exclusive global marketing and sales channel partner for HealthGuard Corporation, of Melbourne Australia

With textiles treated with HealthGuard AMIC, India will be able to step up its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and be on par with other developed economies, Fineotex says.

Metals-free HealthGuard AMIC is 99.94% effective against coronavirus (H1N1-ISO18184 tested) SARS and influenza virus and remains active on treated fabric even after 20 washing cycles.

“The synergy with HealthGuard will add a crucial certified product line to our growing range of solutions,” said Arindam Choudhuri, CEO of Fineotex Chemical. “Protected and treated fabrics that are breathable, comfortable, and easy-to-care are going to be increasingly in demand. As India and the world opens up gradually, just about everyone in public-facing industries will need to wear protected garments that can bring down the chances of them getting infected by the virus.”

HealthGuard AMIC is already a well-known name in the Indian market, with textile giants like Welspun, Trident and Himmatsingka Seide treating their fabrics with it.
