The ‘new normal’ in the Covid-19 world presents challenges in many everyday situations; how do you go about safely opening schools, public transport, and shops? Finding solutions to combat SARS CoV-2 on hard surfaces is one thing, but finding a solution for soft furnishings such as curtains, seats and other commonly used textiles is not as simple. Typically, these are items that are not practical or easy to wash regularly at high temperatures. Liquid Guard® Textile offers a simple one-step solution that is certified to kill TGEV Coronavirus and influenza A on contact (download certificates here).
Liquid Guard Textile is a water-based spray-on product that is multi-functional. Primarily, it is antimicrobial, tested and certified to kill TGVE Coronavirus and Influenza A on contact. In addition, the coating repels water and dirt, making it ideal f
or use on uniforms, masks and upholstery, especially in high traffic areas or where regular washing is not a viable option.
Liquid Guard Textile is applied by spray and can also be incorporated to the Foulard / padding process. Fabric needs to be clean prior to application (free from surface active substances, such as silicon & surfactants). The coating is fully cured after 6 hours and is resistant to approximately 12 washes.
TGEV Coronavirus is the model structure of SARS-CoV, and Liquid Guard awaits testing at one of Europe’s leading laboratories against SARS CoV-2. Currently no other commercial coating products have been tested against SARS CoV-2. However, Liquid Guard’s effectiveness against the Coronavirus group means we are extremely confident that it is SARS CoV-2 effective.
Furthermore, its effectiveness against Influenza A, Klebsiella pneumoniae (Pneumonia) and tens of other bacterial microbes (see list here) confirms its valuable contribution to continually reducing the chances of co-infection from surfaces alongside SARS CoV-2. It’s the co-infection risk that can place those most prone in society (with underlying health conditions) who contract the disease at the greatest risk.
