|Properties||The Shieldex® hygiene wipe is a textile refined with 99.9% pure silver. Due to the firm binding of the silver, the wipe can be reused, is sustainable and retains its textile structure and self-disinfecting effect even after washing. Due to the silver anchored in the textile, the cloth works without chemicals and is a resource-saving alternative to conventional liquid disinfectants.|
|Application fields||Grab bars on public transportation; airplane travel; public places such as rest stops and restrooms; disinfection of surfaces such as the handle of the shopping cart or the touch screen of the cell phone; pin pads of ATMs.|
|Effectiveness & Function||The cloth develops its self-disinfecting effect through the worldwide unique metallization process, which anchors the silver so firmly in the textile that it even withstands strong abrasion forces. The silver permanently releases ions into the environment, creating a surface that is hostile to germ survival. The pronounced antiviral and antibacterial effect of the Shieldex® hygiene wipe has been confirmed by two independent institutes and laboratories.|
