HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 antiviral textile technology tested effective against Coronavirus

HeiQ, winner of the Swiss Technology Award and Swiss Environmental Award, launches HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03, an antiviral and antimicrobial textile treatment that is tested effective against coronavirus.

Since its inception 15 years ago, HeiQ has forged a solid innovation track record helping brands improve textile products. Catalyzed to action by the global fight against Coronavirus, HeiQ launches HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03, an antiviral and antimicrobial textile treatment which is proven effective against human coronavirus (229E) in face mask testing, significantly enhancing the antiviral log reduction from 2.90 of untreated face masks to 4.48, over 99.99% reduction of virus infectivity. (Remarks: a log reduction of 2 is equivalent to 100 times the effectiveness).

Chinese protective masks producer Suzhou Bolisi is the lead adopter of HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03. Treated masks will be available on the market as early as this April. American legwear manufacturer Kayser-Roth is planning to add the technology to their new product, Ghluv hands protector, while Lufeng from China is evaluating the technology on other types of fabric used for garments.

HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is a unique combination of vesicle and silver technologies designed to inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria and viruses. The HeiQ vesicle technology targets lipid- enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus, providing rapid virus deactivation, while the HeiQ silver technology inhibits the replication of both bacteria and viruses. HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 can be applied to a wide spectrum of textile surfaces including face masks, air filters, medical gowns, curtains, drapes and more. HeiQ also has a range of highly wash-durable antimicrobial and odor control textile technologies, called HeiQ Pure, combining silver-based and bio-based materials for all fabric types.

HeiQ: nächste Generation der Produktfamilien Fresh und XReflex

Der Schweizer Textilinnovator HeiQ verbessert seine Produktlinien HeiQ Fresh und HeiQ XReflex. Die aktualisierten Produkte bieten Verbesserungen in mehreren technischen Aspekten für HeiQ Fresh und mehr Produktoptionen mit HeiQ XReflex.

Der Schweizer Textilinnovator HeiQ verbessert seine Produktlinien HeiQ Fresh und HeiQ XReflex. Die aktualisierten Produkte bieten Verbesserungen in mehreren technischen Aspekten für HeiQ Fresh und mehr Produktoptionen mit HeiQ XReflex.

HeiQ Fresh ist das erste Produkt von HeiQ, das entwickelt wurde, um das Problem stinkender Outdoor-Bekleidung zu lösen. Seitdem wurde die Produktfamilie zur Geruchskontrolle mit drei nachhaltigen Produkten - HeiQ Pure TAG, HeiQ Pure SPQR und HeiQ Fresh FFL - kontinuierlich aktualisiert. HeiQ Pure TAG wurde überarbeitet. Es handelt sich um eine Geruchskontrolle auf Basis von recyceltem Silber mit einer nichtionischen Neuformulierung, die mit den meisten Textilveredelungsprodukten in hohem Maße kompatibel ist. Es hat eine lange Haltbarkeit und ist sehr lagerstabil. HeiQ Pure SPQR ist eine silber- und biobasierte hybride Technologie zur Geruchskontrolle mit Zweifach-Wirkung und erfüllt die Anforderungen des USDA Biopreferred® Programms. HeiQ Fresh FFL ist eine biobasierte Technologie zur Geruchskontrolle, die ebenfalls die Anforderungen des USDA Biopreferred® Programms erfüllt. Alle diese Produkte sind OEKO-TEX® (Klasse 1-4) konform und bluesign® genehmigt. Sowohl HeiQ Pure SPQR als auch HeiQ Fresh FFL werden als Standardware ausgeliefert, was den weltweiten Versand und die Lagerhaltung erleichtert und zu einer Kostenreduzierung führt.

HeiQ bringt für HeiQ XReflex zusätzliche Stoff- und Isolationspakete auf den Markt. Diese Lösung bietet das gleiche Maß an Wärme bei einer bis zur Hälfte reduzierten Isolation, reduziert das Volumen und spart Material für Bekleidung, Schlafsäcke, Handschuhe, Decken usw. Eine durchschnittlich isolierte Jacke kann mit HeiQ XReflex den ökologischen Fußabdruck reduzieren und bis zu 280g CO2, 10 MJ Energie und 6L Wasser einsparen. Diese patentierte Technologie wird jetzt mit einer oder zwei Schichten wärmereflektierender Oberfläche angeboten, die bei gleicher Wärme bis zu 50% weniger Volumen bieten, ohne die Atmungsaktivität des Stoffes zu beeinträchtigen. HeiQ XReflex ist auch als leichte Gewebeschicht erhältlich und bietet damit eine ultradünne Wärmebarriere für eine grössere Design-Flexibilität sowie Logistik- und Kostenoptimierung.

„Wir sind ständig auf der Suche nach Möglichkeiten, um unsere Effizienz und Technologien bei HeiQ kontinuierlich zu verbessern“, sagt Carlo Centonze, CEO der HeiQ Group. „Mit diesen neuen Verbesserungen unserer HeiQ Fresh- und HeiQ XReflex-Technologien bieten wir unseren Kunden einen besseren Support und bessere Produkte, um deren Endprodukte auf dem Markt zu etablieren und zu differenzieren.“

Neue Technologie in der HeiQ Fresh-Serie verwandelt Vorhänge in Luftreiniger

Der Schweizer Textilinnovator HeiQ hat dem Luftmanagement eine neue Dimension in der HeiQ Fresh-Produktlinie gegeben – Luftreinigungsfunktionalität, die in Vorhängen von IKEA zur Reduzierung von Innenraumluftschadstoffen wie den flüchtigen organischen Verbindungen (VOCs) Acetaldehyd, Formaldehyd und Stickoxid (NO) eingesetzt wird.

Kein Stromanschluss, kein zusätzlicher Platzbedarf, der Gunrid-Vorhang von IKEA sieht aus wie ein gewöhnlicher Vorhang, erfüllt aber eine neuartige Funktion – er reinigt die Raumluft, dank der neuesten Technologie der HeiQ Fresh-Serie, HeiQ Fresh AIR, mit der er ausgestattet ist. Gunrid-Gardinen werden 2020 in den IKEA-Geschäften erhältlich sein.

Gunrid-Gardinen werden 2020 in den IKEA-Geschäften erhältlich sein.

Nach Angaben der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) sind über 80% der Stadtbewohner einer hohen Luftverschmutzung ausgesetzt1. Die Konzentration von VOCs in Innenräumen ist im Allgemeinen sogar höher als im Freien2. Während viele VOCs nicht als gesundheitsschädlich eingestuft werden, wie z.B. Parfüms und Duftstoffe, werden andere wie Acetaldehyd, Formaldehyd, Stickoxide (NO) und d-Limonene und andere halbflüchtige polyzyklische aromatische Kohlenwasserstoffe von der WHO als Verantwortliche erheblicher negativer Auswirkungen auf die Gesundheit angesehen. Diese VOCs stammen sowohl aus Quellen im Freien als auch aus Quellen im Innenbereich wie Möbel, Farben, Haushaltsreinigungsmittel, Sprays oder Kochaktivitäten, wie in der von IKEA durchgeführten Reinlufterhebung 2018 beschrieben wurde. HeiQ hat eine innovative Textilbehandlung entwickelt, die Heimtextilien wie Vorhänge als Medium zur Reinigung der Raumluft verwendet, um das Leben der Menschen zu verbessern.

HeiQ provides sustainable dyeing and finishing solutions

Swiss textile innovator HeiQ partners with Twinery to significantly reduce waste in their apparel production supply chain.

Apparel manufacturing is the second largest polluting industry in the world. While there are many solutions to this problem, Bodyline has taken the lead to focus on developing a low impact supply chain by reducing energy and waste across the entire value chain and develop No Waste Apparel – Truecycled.

Two steps in this supply chain lifecycle include improving the dyeing and finishing stages. To improve the dyeing stage by using less water and energy and save CO2 during the polyester dyeing process, Truecycled has implemented HeiQ Clean Tech for more efficient and ecological processing of textiles.

“Aiming to improve the everyday products of textiles by making them more functional, comfortable and sustainable, HeiQ is proud to partner with Bodyline on their Truecycled project”, says Carlo Centonze, Chief Executive Officer at HeiQ.

Powered by HeiQ Smart Temp technology, BUFF® launches CoolNet UV+® for activated cooling

Swiss textile innovator HeiQ partners with BUFF® on their new CoolNet UV+® fabric to stay dry and feel cool. For 25 years, BUFF® has premiered and innovated the tubular headwear category. Headquartered in Spain, the company was founded to keep warm the founder’s neck and head during his crosscountry motorcycle rides. Today, BUFF® continues its heritage of quality and reliability of multifunctional headwear.

HeiQ Smart Temp is an intelligent thermoregulation technology. Cooling is activated by rising body temperature and deactivated once cooling is complete. HeiQ Smart Temp keeps the wearer cooler, dryer and more comfortable.
“HeiQ and BUFF® have a shared vision of quality and reliability in our products. With the new CoolNet UV+® fabric, we are pleased that our HeiQ Smart Temp technology will allow the consumer to Stay Dry and Feel Cool”, says Christian von Uthmann, HeiQ’s Chief Sales Officer.
