April 29, 2021 - Switzerland

Sanitized T 99-19 antimicrobial technology has been proven 99.84 per cent effective against SARS-CoV-2 virus by independent labs in France. The antimicrobial protection of Sanitized T 99-19 is valued by global textile manufacturers. 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 precisely these areas of application can now not only be antimicrobial, but also reliably protective against SARS CoV-2, according to a media statement by Sanitized.

Tests on end products, which were additionally carried out by textile manufacturers, also prove the effectiveness of Sanitized T 99-19 against SARS CoV-2. License partners praise this confidence-building benefit of the end products. Sanitized license partners receive concrete support in terms of marketing and legal aspects (health claims). Sanitized has always been more than just a manufacturer of innovative antimicrobial products. Advice and support for customers in achieving optimal hygiene protection for their products are an integral part of the company’s offering. A claim guide has therefore been developed especially for products that protect against COVID-19. Sanitized works closely with institutes, universities and global labs on testing methods, the company said.

“This excellent antiviral test result of our particle and metal-free Silane Quat technology, achieved on the basis of a standardised and reproducible test method, meets the expectation of our customers and the market. 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 our efforts to control the pandemic,” Stefan Müller, head of business unit textile additives at Sanitised said in statement.

Sanitized is the world’s leading Swiss company for hygiene function, material protection, and odour-management for textiles, polymers, coatings, and paints.
