Bacteria and viruses are able to adhere to textile surfaces, which can carry these microorganisms, becoming a dangerous vehicle for contamination and transmission.

Taking this into account, Solvay developed the Amni® Virus-Bac OFF, an antiviral and antibacterial polyamide textile yarn with permanent effect.

It is a functional polyamide yarn with antiviral and antibacterial agent in its polymeric matrix helping to avoid the re-transmission of viruses from textile surfaces.

Developed to eliminate the proliferation of bacteria and inhibit the transmission of viruses on textile articles. Amni® Virus-Bac OFF polyamide yarn offers protection against bacteria and viruses, including enveloped viruses, as influenza, herpesvirus, new coronavirus and others.

Textile articles developed from Amni® Virus-Bac OFF Polyamide reduce the likelihood of contamination, since they are capable of disabling the viruses and bacteria present on the textile surface.

Amni® Virus-Bac OFF yarn acts on groups of enveloped, non-enveloped viruses and bacterias.
