Fiber that kills the viability of the coronavirus by 97.4% within 30 minutes revealed

Published on

The fiber is called “Everfresh”, its secret is that it is based on zinc, which, according to engineers, has antimicrobial properties.

“It can be particularly useful for materials used in common, shared spaces, like dormitories, hotels or mosques. We believe it will address hygiene expectations of users,” says Atakan Koru from the Aksa Akrilik’s research and development.

As it does not have any additional finishing process that may degrade its antiviral feature, the fiber does not wear away with use and engineers say it will be able to eliminate virus for years, it can be used to make clothes or other materials used in public places.

According to the company Aksa Akrilik’s research and development located in western Turkey, the fiber-containing zinc has antimicrobial features and can be used in textile production as well.

Engineers believe it is a promising solution as the transmission of COVID-19 via surfaces remains low, according to the CDC, but you cannot be too careful when it comes to a mutating virus and the fibre, engineers have developed “eliminates the viability of the coronavirus by 97.4% within a half an hour.”
