Shieldex® Hygienic cloth
The Shieldex® Hygienic cloth protects against contact transmission in public spaces. Whether shopping, travelling or disinfecting your hands and personal items – the Shieldex® Hygienic cloth makes everyday life easier and is also an ideal companion when you’re on the move thanks to its handy size.
The globally unique 3D metallisation process, in which each individual filament is completely metallised, distinguishes our Shieldex® products and enables the ideal use of various metal properties in a textile form.
|Properties||The Shieldex® hygienic cloth is a textile finished with 99.9% pure silver. Thanks to the firm bond of the silver, the cloth can be reused, is sustainable and also retains its textile structure and self-disinfecting effect even after washing. The silver anchored into the textile enables the cloth to work without any chemicals, making it a resource-friendly alternative to conventional liquid disinfectants.|
|Applications||Handrails on public transport ; Aeroplane journeys ; Public places such as service stations and toilets ; Disinfection of surfaces, such as the handle on shopping trolleys and mobile phone touchscreens ; PIN pads on bank ATMs|
|Effectiveness & function||The cloth has a self-disinfecting effect thanks to the globally unique metallisation process that anchors the silver so firmly into the textile that it even withstands strong abrasion. The silver constantly releases ions into the environment and creates a surface on which germs cannot survive. The pronounced antiviral and antibacterial effect of the Shieldex® hygienic cloth has been confirmed by two independent institutes and laboratories.|
