CAPTURE l INACTIVATE l REPETITION
Innovative PROX™ technology which inactivates bacteria and viruses, including ≥ 99.9% SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
How does the anti virus technology functions?
Step 1. Capture
PROX antiviral fabrics have imitative active silver and titanium based, positive charged binding sites for virus. Similar to an electrostatic attraction principle, the sited attract negatively charged Sulphur groups in glycoprotein layers of virus and bacteria. Upon contact, the microbes are captured at these active binding sites.
Step 2. Inactivate
The positive-negative counteraction adversely disrupts the glycoprotein layers (protein capsid envelopes) of virus subsequently, inactivating it. Additional fatty spherical vesicle technology (liposomes) also helps to deplete the viral membrane of its cholesterol content. The combination of both of these mechanisms rapidly destroy enveloped viruses including coronaviruses.
Step 3. Repetition
Upon disintegration, the virus falls off or can be easily removed through washing. The binding sites are now free to capture virus again. The mechanism is repeated offering continuous protection not only against virus, but also other harmful bacteria.
