Polygiene announced at a press conference that it is developing a new formula for its ViralOff technology that will provide a testable lifetime of virus reduction in garments. Products treated with the new ViralOff+ will continue to reduce more than 99 percent of viruses within two hours, even after 30 washes. The new formula will not be available until later in the autumn, at an unknown date, as the availability of laboratory tests and other factors are difficult to predict during the ongoing crisis. Many products may never need to be washed because of viruses or odor, but the effect on products that do need washing should last for a long time, Polygiene said.
