The вЂњmagicвЂќ fabric contains zinc and has unique properties вЂ” it can be used not only for masks
The Turkish company Aksa Akrilik claims to have created a material on which 97.5% of the coronavirus dies within 30 minutes.
This is reported by the Daily Sabah.
This material was called Everfresh. It consists of zinc-containing fibers and has antimicrobial properties.
It is planned to use it mainly for the production of protective face masks, but in the future, this material can be used in textile production, for example, for sewing clothes and home textiles.
The developers believe that this will be especially useful in public areas вЂ” in particular, in dormitories, hotels, or religious sites.
Aksa Akrilik claims that Everfresh does not undergo additional finishing that could impair its anti-virus properties, so the material does not wear out when used and can destroy viruses for many years.
It is worth noting that numerous studies, including the US National Institutes of Health, have shown that coronavirus particles can remain viable for a long time on various surfaces. For example:
вЂ” in aerosols (suspended water particles released when sneezing or coughing) вЂ” 3 hours;
вЂ” on copper вЂ” 4 hours;
вЂ” on plastic and stainless steel вЂ” 3 days.
Earlier, Turkish scientists created a Genoxyn nasal spray that destroys the coronavirus in just one minute.
It was also reported about the development of Turkish scientists-a nanotechnology test for COVID-19, which shows the result within 10 seconds with an accuracy of 99%.
