Tagged with: | | | | |

WEKO, a German supplier of industrial application systems for surface finishing, has joined forces with Swedish chemicals company Polygiene to offer solutions for applying the latter’s Polygiene ViralOff as a spray of microdroplets.

Polygiene ViralOff has been designed for the treatment of textiles and other products, and is claimed to reduce viruses by 99% in a couple of hours.

According to Polygiene, by applying Polygiene ViralOff as a spray of microdroplets, up to 80% of water, 80% of chemistry, and 90% of drying energy can be saved.

Mats Georgson – CMO at Polygiene said: “ViralOff is as much a sustainability initiative as it is a part of battling the current and future pandemics.

“With ViralOff you can skip maybe 80% of washes – there is no “just in case” reasons. And that will save so much on the environment. Now with WEKO we can realize dramatic savings in the production side too. And while this application method is not as dry as my puns, it uses only 20% of the water of conventional methods.”

The Swedish chemicals company said that machines and application solutions will be sold to present and new customers which include various textile treatment and manufacturing mills. This will enable Polygiene to further strengthen its footprint in the whole value chain, from branded consumer and professional products brand labels to their manufacturing partners.

Tobias Schurr – sales and marketing director at WEKO said: “We see the demand for ViralOff in the market, and we wanted to bring our expertise in applications to make this technology even better. The savings in water, energy and chemical footprint are more than substantial. We also give perfect repeatability of the application, which is important when promising the >99% virus reduction of ViralOff.”
