AVIRO – REUSABLE 99.99% EFFECTIVE ANTI-VIRAL/BACTERIAL FACEMASK
Created by JAMIE HUNT , co-founder of global sports brand 2XU, AVIRO is a certified, technical facemask and lifestyle brand that uses innovative, anti-viral and anti-bacterial technology to help prevent the spread of pathogens through textile surfaces.
AVIRO uses HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03, a safe and sustainable textile treatment, comprised of biobased renewable ingredients, that has been proven to reduce 99.99% of human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID- 19 along with other enveloped viruses and bacteria.
HOW IT WORKS
- Viruses and bacteria can remain ineffective on textile surfaces for days.
- These can be transferred by breathing and handling.
- Human Coronavirus can persist for up to 2 days at room temperature.
- For over 6 years the HeiQ team have been developing a treatment that can combat this problem.
- HeiQ Viroblock uses a unique combination of silver and vesicle technologies to destroy the membrane of the virus that the Viroblock comes in contact with.
Jamie, using his many years of experience and working closely alongside the HeiQ team, has developed a fabric that the Viroblock could adhere to. Using particular fibres and weaving methods he has finally created a line of clothing that combats the now perennial problem of pathogenic prevalence in the current climate.
VIROBLOCK FACEMASK – Made from 100% polyester, the hero 3- layer facemask uses HeiQ technology on the inner and outer layer, to produce a reusable and washable covering that prevents the spread of pathogens. Each facemask is anti-viral for at least 30 washes and anti-bacterial for at least 50 washes. The middle filter layer, by means of Smart Temp technology; temperature regulates whilst also managing moisture. This creates a cooling facemask that is both breathable and odourless. Unlike other masks that are just designed to filter airborne particles, AVIRO facemasks are engineered to inhibit the presence and growth of pathogens on fabric, creating a germ resistant surface.
