SHIELD collection is a compelling innovation in the area of personal health & hygiene, offering a wide range of denim fabrics that aim to fight viruses & bacteria. This innovative denim range also features fabric powered by HeiQ Viroblock technology which has been tested effective against a dozen viruses and bacteria, including SARS-CoV-2, H1N1, H5N1, H7N9, H3N2, and Sendai virus, all with an effectiveness above 99.99%.
Studies suggest that viruses and bacteria can remain infective on textile surfaces for days. Human Coronavirus (SARS-CoV) persist for up to 2 days on surgical gowns at room temperature. In this context, antiviral treatments for textiles can significantly reduce the risk of transmission and contamination thus ensuring hygiene and safety. HeiQ Viroblock is a unique combination of advanced silver and vesicle components which is imparted technically on the fabric surface. These active components in the HeiQ Viroblock kill bacteria and destroy common harmful enveloped viruses within a short time span of 2 minutes of exposure (according to modified AATCC100 test conducted on Sendai virus). HeiQ Viroblock is designed to last on the fabric even after repeated domestic washes.
