Fisher Textiles (Matthews, North Carolina), a leading U.S.-based supplier of fabrics for digital printing applications, has introduced Disenfectex, a new line of printable fabrics treated with HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03. HeiQ Viroblock is an antiviral and antibacterial textile treatment that uses a unique combination of silver and vesicle technologies to trap and immediately kill viruses and bacteria – on contact!
Disenfectex fabrics promote antiviral and antibacterial protection for healthy environments and are also flame-retardant for additioinal indoor safety. They have a wide variety of uses for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – including face masks, sanitation stations, counter-top barriers, desk dividers, table and booth dividers, table throws, room dividers as well as pop-up screens for retail stores, pharmacies, restaurants, hotels, banks, museums, casinos, professional services, business offices and healthcare facilities.
When used in SEG systems as protective barriers, they aid in social-distancing requirements and also act as an acoustic insulator to absorb sound and background noise, the company added. Disenfectex fabrics are washable and can withstand up to 30 “gentle” washes. The new fabric line consists of a face-mask fabric, soft-knit fabric, sheer fabric and suede fabric available in roll widths from 57 inches to 125 inches wide, for transfer and direct dye-sublimation printing.
