Recently, our Armor fabric passed testing with SARS-COVID-2 virus that shares the same RNA genome and responds in the same way as COVID-19. The tests used a Control fabric that did not have the AEGIS® or stain-guard finishes to compare with the Armor Test fabric printed on both sides with the AEGIS® and stain-guard. One hour after the feline coronavirus was applied, both swatches were exposed to UV light mimicking a similar protocol using UV-C machines. The Control fabric showed an 81.58% reduction of the viral load, while the treated Armor fabric showed a 99.95% reduction of the viral load.
Our Armor fabric has the Microban AEGIS Microbe Shield® which forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer that attracts, then electrocutes and ruptures, a microbe’s negatively charged cell membrane. Our stain-guard repels dirt, oil, bodily fluids, betadine, and charcoal. Stains can easily clean off in-place with off-the-shelf cleaners.
