WHAT ARE VIRUSES AND CORONAVIRUSES?

In biology, a virus is a microscopic acellular infectious agent that contaminates all kinds of organisms and can only reproduce within the cells of other organisms.

Viruses spread in many different ways, and each type of virus has a way of transmitting itself. We call transmission vectors the living organisms that transport them from one person to another, from an animal to a person or vice versa. The vast majority of viruses are too small to be observed with an optical microscope, which is why they are called sub-microscopic.

Coronaviruses are a wide family of viruses and some of them have the ability to spread from animals to humans.

They produce clinical pictures that range from a common cold up to more serious diseases, as it happens with the coronavirus that is currently blighting us in a pandemic degree and that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV).

The new coronavirus is called SARS-CoV-2.

The disease that causes SARS-CoV-2 is called COVID-19.

ARE THERE TEXTILES WITH TREATMENTS THAT ENSURE KEEPING AWAY THE PRESENCE OF VIRUSES, SUCH AS CORONAVIRUSES, AS WELL AS BACTERIA, MICROBES, MITE AND FUNGI?

Currently, yes.

In Pytón, as in the society, the impact that the pandemic has caused us, has sensitized us to obtain the maximum guarantees of health security in our environment and towards us.

We have adopted Agion® Antimicrobial SOLUTION and others as a biocidal treatment, in order to provide, in production, to the structures of our fabrics, the inhibitory protection that ensures their aseptic value, thus being free of any infectious presence, whether microscopic or sub-microscopic..

HOW DO YOU CERTIFY, IN AN OFFICIAL APPROVAL, THE ABSENCE OF VIRUSES, BACTERIA AND FUNGI IN YOUR PRODUCTS?

You should always demand a certificate from an approved centre that validates the treatment which is being advertised as product’s value. In our case, we always detail the certificate of the treatment that is incorporated in production and, then, depending on the type of product, we approve its result in a technological centre recognized in the EEC and specific for the composition of the treated textile.

Agion Antimicrobial Efficacy Against Coronavirus is Tested

Agion® Antimicrobial is registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as a preservative and bacteriostatic agent for use in products treated under 40 CFR 152.25a.

WHICH QUALITIES FROM YOUR OFFER CARRY THIS SANITARY OPTION?

All our textile offer has, as an option, the possibility to incorporate this treatment in production, both in the range of fabrics for upholstery, as well as textiles for curtains and sheers.

Agion® Antimicrobial

Similarly, our proposal in Synthetics has the option of specific treatment for its sanitary resistance, being possible to complement it with reference treatments such as

 

Teflon® or, Sanitized®
