Eliminates > 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2
Livinguard Technology scientifically proven to destroy > 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2. Researchers of the Freien Universität Berlin at the Institute for Animal and Environmental Hygiene and the Institute for Textile Technology (ITA) of the RWTH Aachen University have proven that the Livinguard Technology inactivates the pathogen Sars-CoV-2. These results are supported by similar results from the University of Arizona.
“The textiles in these masks can thus continuously inactivate the exhaled viruses adhering to the face mask and make the handling of these masks altogether safer,” explains Professor Dr. Uwe Rösler from the Institute for Animal and Environmental Hygiene at the Free University of Berlin.
The principle of the Livinguard technology is to provide the textile surface with a strong positive charge. When bacteria and viruses come into contact with the technology, the negatively charged microbial cell is destroyed, resulting in the permanent destruction of the pathogens. In contrast to alternative metal-based solutions, the novel technology has proven to be safe for skin and lungs. In addition, the Livinguard technology is highly sustainable and allows users to reuse the mask up to 200 times without compromising safety or efficacy.
