JCT has partnered with Polygiene to launch VB-GO hazmat suits, face masks, and coveralls, all of which will have the functionality of Polygiene ViralOff antiviral treatment technology. JCT is a leading composite textile mill, producing cotton and synthetic textiles, technical textiles, specialised garments, sportswear, medicalwear, and filament yarns.

“JCT has also extended the use of this ViralOff technology to enhance the hygiene and protection factor of its range of workwear, medicalwear, hospitality wear, school uniforms, and a range of other products, as today, more than ever before, Anti-infective wear is going to be the new normal,” Priya Thapar, director strategic business development, JCT said in a press release.

“JCT has always been a pioneer in the textile industry in India, having developed in-house several new and innovative technologies. This has been exemplified most recently, with JCT being the first in India to develop and produce a personal protection hazmat suit for the government of India, that exceeds the existing standards set by them, for protective wear suits to be worn by first responders and healthcare workers combating the current Covid-19 pandemic,” Thapar said.

“To be able to also offer JCT’s customers world class, environmentally friendly and sustainable anti-infective safety wear products and fabrics, we are honoured and privileged to announce our partnership with Polygiene for using their specialised technologies like ViralOff to address the requirements for anti-infective wear that the post COVID-19 world scenario will demand from the clothing and workwear sector, to ward off a range of infective agents. I am confident that our partnership with Polygiene will synergise the efforts of both companies to jointly develop new products for the changing global market,” she concludes.

“We are proud to be able to supply ViralOff to JCT in this time of emergency. For us, JCT is an ideal and strong partner that has the aim to expand in the segment of protective clothing together with us, and we are looking forward to a long and prosperous cooperation going forward,” Ulrika Björk, CEO, Polygiene said.
