Prolexus unveils its ProX™ anti-virus technology, claimed to inactivate >99% SARS-CoV-2

The ProXmask is washable and reusable up to 60 times, making it an environmental friendly product.

The recent spike in Covid-19 cases worldwide should not be taken lightly as the new variants are more infectious.

Even with the vaccination roll out, wearing a face mask is still considered a necessity as the virus continues to mutate.

Double-masking has become a topic of conversation to enhance protection by improving filtration.

It also fits more closely against the face for a better seal.

However, one of the disadvantages of double-masking is poor breathability which will cause frequent removal of the mask and hence, increases exposure.

ProXmask is the better alternative to double-masking and it also has an added advantage.

Designed and engineered with ProX technology, ProXmask is able to inactivate 99% of SARS-CoV-2 that causes Covid-19, other coronaviruses as well as influenza viruses and bacteria.

The antiviral technology involves the presence of active positive charges on the fabric, as binding sites for viruses.

Upon contact with the fabric, virus cells that are negatively charged are neutralised, leading to the rapid destruction of its glycoprotein layers.

ProXmask is also water repellent, offers better breathability and enhanced microfiltration technology, achieving above 95% BFE (bacteria filtration efficiency) and PFE (particle filtration efficiency) versus 85.4% in double-masking.

Its water repellent feature enables effective shielding from respiratory droplets containing viruses and bacteria.

It is washable and reusable up to 60 times, which makes it an environmental friendly product.

ProXmask is also the first fabric mask in Malaysia to obtain product certification from Sirim QAS International.

It also carries CE marking for the European Economic Area and is US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) registered.
