Matthews, N.C. – Fisher Textiles announces the launch of Disenfectex TM printable fabric enhanced by HeiQ V-block in collaboration with HeiQ. Marketed as HeiQ Viroblock in other countries, HeiQ V-block is an antiviral textile technology for industrial use, specially engineered to work against enveloped viruses, such as influenza viruses and human coronaviruses. Treated fabrics submitted by HeiQ have been tested by the Doherty Institute in Australia to be effective against 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2.
Disenfectex TM fabrics treated with HeiQ V-block are resistant to microbes and HeiQ V-block inhibits the growth of bacteria on the fabric. The line consists of a face mask fabric, soft knit fabric, sheer fabric and suede fabric available in roll widths 57 inches to 125 inches wide for transfer and direct dye sublimation printing. All styles are available now in the US.
Disenfectex TM fabrics have many uses for personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks and gaiters, sanitation stations, counter-top barriers, desk dividers, table and booth dividers, table throws, room dividers and pop-up screens for retail stores, pharmacies, restaurants, hotels, banks, museums, casinos, professional services, business offices and healthcare facilities. When used in SEG systems as protective barriers, DisenfectexTM fabrics aid in social distancing requirements and act as an acoustic insulator to absorb sound and background noise. All Disenfectex TM fabrics are reusable and washable up to 30 gentle washes.
