❝In short, a water based spray that can be applied to clothing, vehicle interiors or other textiles and has been tested 99.997% effective at killing human coronavirus (SARS COV-2) within 5 mins. In addition, the treated fabrics remain resistant to bacteria and viruses for 10 days.❞
Virastop is an end-user antiviral clothing and textile spray developed in cooperation with a leading European chemical research and manufacturing company.
The data is profound and compelling! The use of Virastop’s silver salt and lipid vesicle technology (patent pending) allows the user to kill Coronavirus on clothing, vehicle seats and other textiles on contact and up to 99.997% in 2-5 minutes.
In addition, Virastop remains on these surfaces for days. In most cases as long as 10 days on fabrics and up to 30 washes @ 40C on clothing.
The breakthrough of these synergistic technologies have been tested to ISO:18184 (antiviral), ISO:20743 (anti-microbial).
Not only is this effective against Coronavirus, but it is also highly effective against human influenza, bird flu, swine flu, and most commune bacterial/ viral strains with similar results.
This joint effort is a huge milestone for infinity chemicals (Infinity Wax) & will be aiming to release this product in a few week's time (exact timescale will be confirmed at a later date) selling via Infinity Wax online and our distribution partners.
In addition and in line with our sustainability goals, Virastop will be provided in sustainable bottles that are multi-use and can be refilled with a plastic refill pouch that can be purchased separately.
It is our belief that together we can rely on this and other products to begin regaining a safe living and working environment for our customers and end users.
How It Works
Infinity Chemicals Virastop! is a unique combination of ourregistered silver technologyfor antiviral and antibacterial effect and ourvesicle technologyas a booster.
The silver technology attracts the oppositely charged viruses and binds permanently to their sulfur groups, and the fatty spherical vesicle technology (Liposomes) helps to deplete the viral membrane (the pericapsis) of its cholesterin content in seconds, thereby destroying the viruses, such as coronavirus.
How Can This Help Fight Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Today the virus can survive 1-2 days on a textile surface, so you’re basically bringing the virus home on your textiles and clothing, car seats etc, and there’s always a risk that you’ll touch the textile somewhere and then don’t wash your hands properly before you change your outdoor clothing to indoor clothing, for instance. Then, there’s always the risk that you’ll touch your face and get infected that way. That’s exactly the risk that we want to mitigate. We want to make the textile surface such that the virus and bacteria are deactivated immediately in a short time – and we’re talking minutes.
How Long Does It Last On Fabric?
There are two components of Virastop!, both antiviral. The silver stays for 30 washes, the vesicle for 20 washes at 40°C. The technologies are synergistic, the vesicle acts as a booster, the silver gives the baseline performance. In real terms this can mean 2 weeks on clothing and around a week on vehicle fabrics.
Is Virastop Skin Safe?
A human patch dermatological testing was similarly performed, which demonstrated perfect skin compatibility.
