The almost100% efficacy of Sanitized T 99-19 against the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been confirmed by independent labs in France based on  ISO 18184:2019.

Textile and polymer products with Sanitized antimicrobial treatment have been used in hygiene-sensitive areas for many years. For textiles, Sanitized T 99-19 is a patented technology based on a silane-ammonia compound, a globally proven product. Its hygiene function is used in workwear and protective clothing for nursing staff, bed linen or mattresses in hotels, nursing care facilities and hospitals.

Polyester goods for these areas of application can now not only be antimicrobial, but also reliably protective against SARS CoV-2. The antiviral efficacy (99.84 %) of the Sanitized T 99-19 product has been officially confirmed by tests conducted by external labs.

 “This excellent antiviral test result of our particle and metal-free Silane Quat technology, achieved on the basis of a standardized and reproducible test method, meets the expectation of our customers and the market,” Stefan Müller, head of textile additives at Sanitized AG, headquartered in Burgdorf, Switzerland. “Thanks to its wide range of applications, Sanitized T 99-19 can be used in a variety of ways in daily hygiene and can make a positive contribution to efforts to control the pandemic.

Sanitized has always been more than just a manufacturer of antimicrobial products and advice and support for customers in achieving optimal hygiene protection for their products is an integral part of the company’s services. A claim guide has therefore been developed especially for products that protect against Covid-19.
