Croatia’s leading clothing manufacturing company Varteks has unveiled a men’s suit with special technological innovation.
Although at first glance it may look like any other suit, the new suit is special, innovative and unique. It is made of Marzotto fabric made of 100% fleece wool with an antiviral coating that eliminates the presence of viruses on the fabric surface.
Varteks’ VIRAL OFF suit is the only one of its kind currently available on the Croatian market
The antiviral coating is a technological innovation of the Italian textile manufacturer Marzotto, which was developed and produced in cooperation with a leading company in the biomedical sector, Polygiene.
The advantages of antiviral coating on fabric are multiple. In addition to being proven to reduce the possible presence of more than 99% of viruses within 2 hours (as confirmed by the ISO standard and Oeko-tex certification), VIRAL OFF coating protects clothing, reduces the need for cleaning, disinfects clothing and prolongs its life.
The coating is applied to a finished fabric made of natural fibres such as wool, cotton or linen, and the active ingredient of the coating is the reaction mass of titanium dioxide and silver chloride. The antiviral coating is safe in contact with the skin, does not cause allergic reactions and is not dangerous to the health of adults and children, or pets.
“In order to maintain its effectiveness, the suit with VIRAL OFF coating is maintained by dry dry cleaning of the suit, which will not impair its properties. VIRAL OFF coating eliminates viruses as soon as they come in contact with the fabric and ensures that the presence of viruses that can rest on the fabric surface disappears from the clothes within 2 hours, but it is important to note that it does not provide complete protection against infection,” Varteks says.
ANTI VIRAL protection only acts on viruses that fall on the fabric of the suit, and in order to reduce the possibility of infection, it is still necessary to adhere to all prescribed epidemiological measures. Nevertheless, VIRAL OFF technology marks a significant milestone in the treatment of new materials and a shift towards the health protection that fashion can provide to consumers, indicating that its function is not only to be aesthetically beautiful, but also useful and safe.
The VIRAL OFF suits pants and jackets are classic cut and come in grey. You can find them at Varteks outlets and online on the webshop at www.varteks.com.
