X-Care

Protected against germs and microbes

X-Care is the shirt that prevents the proliferation of germs and microbes by destroying them in just a few minutes. The technology used in the Viroformula™ fabrics has been developed by Cotonificio Albini together with the Swiss company Heiq. Small silver particles activate anti-pathogenic reactions, binding themselves to groups of sulphur founds permanently in microbes. A second technology uses the fatty vesicles (liposomes) that destroy the germs by cutting through the protective membranes formed by cholesterol.

The specific ISO18184, ISO20743 and AATCC 100 tests that assess antiviral and antibacterial characteristics in textile products were positive, thus certifying the efficacy of the active principles.

The garments produced using X-care technology provide greater protection for those wearing them on working days, right up to returning home. The applied technology lasts for up to 30 washes, without altering the garment’s physical characteristics.
