Woollen fabrics manufacturer Yünsa started to produce a new fabric that have protective properties against viruses. They applied a special Antiviral Finishing Technique to the fabric developed during the Covid-19 outbreak, which influenced the world. The company announced that the fabric has passed these tests successfully and its production has started.
Yünsa fabrics produced with Antiviral Finishing Technique provide 98% protection against respiratory viruses. This result has been confirmed by the prestigious and reliable The International Antimicrobial Council (America) and Microbe Investigations AG (Switzerland).
The fabrics on which the Antiviral Finishing Technique is applied disintegrate the lipid layer on the outer layer of the viruses that come to its surface, thus breaking the viruses. With this technique, which can be applied to 100% wool, wool / polyester and wool / nylon blended fabrics, an antiviral protection feature that is resistant to 5 washes was developed in the first place. Studies are continuing to increase this rate to 10 washes and above.
Antiviral Yünsa fabrics offer full protection against viruses, bacteria and fungi. Applications are made for different usage areas according to the demands of suits and outerwear, upholstery and uniforms.
