HEIQ | Effective and skin-safe antiviral textile technology
Aug. 27, 2020

 HeiQ’s Viroblock is a patent-applied textile technology that adds an antimicrobial (antibacterial and antiviral) efficacy to textiles. It is an unique combination of HeiQ's advanced silver technology and a vescicle technology as a booster. Silver admits silver-ions to inhibit bacteria on the fabric surface. The vesicle technology depletes the viral membrane thus silver can work more efficiently and rapidly to attack the core of the virus. All ingredients in HeiQ Viroblock (complete name: HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03) are selected from international Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) list and Beta Analytics laboratory has certified the formulation as comprised of at least 72% bio-based materials. The technology is tested as skin-safe and non-irritant.
