According to officials, two startups at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Delhi) have launched an antiviral T-shirt and a COVID-19 protection lotion, on Friday the products, which are components of an antiviral kit, were disclosed by the Director of the Institute V. Ramgopal Rao. There are two startups Kleinsta and E-TEX
The furnishings contains a novel Kleinsta Protection lotion, E-TEX armor antiviral T-shirt, hand sanitizer, and Kawach mask. The experts from the Department of Chemical and Textiles of IIT, Delhi supported the products.
As per the officials, the antiviral fabric designed by the startup E-TEX has been manufactured using advanced technology, which reduces the chance of pollution and transmission by destroying micro-organisms upon contact.
Refining is done on cellulosic fiber, which is safe for human interaction and the environment. Even after 30 washes in a mild condition, this antimicrobial property of the garment is effective.
The COVID-19 pandemic is emphasizing all-time high demand for multifunctional anti-viral and microbial items of clothing. Advancement of cost-effective bio-fabrics with antiviral and antimicrobial functionals through local resources and resilient manufacture neutralizing viral threats. The products can, efficiently stop or slow the reach of the infection.
Bipin Kumar, Department of Textiles and Fiber Engineering, IIT Delhi, said, it will improve the local economy for the textile and wardrobe sectors.
Mr. Kumar further said that the COVID-19 protection lotion started by a start-up named “Clensta” furnishes 99.9 percent virus protection up to 24 hours with antiviral and antiseptic properties.
