Mumbai, July 31, 2020. 

How about a reusable mask that kills coronavirus, kills various bacteria, is breathable, keeps you cool, is environment friendly and is affordable? Yes, Thermaissance’s masks exactly offer these features and much more. It strives to protect the wearer as well as our environment at a very affordable price. These fabrics are based on nanotechnology and are anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. 

Effectiveness against Covid-19 and other bacteria

Tested by a US-based ISO 17025 certified laboratory, a single layer of Thermaissance fabric have been proven to kill >93% coronavirus (human coronavirus) in less than 5 mins, and kill >99.99% in less than an hour. The testing was performed as per the actual ISO approved standard for testing anti-viral activity (ISO 18184). Since the masks are made of 2-layer fabrics, the actual Covid-19 kill rate of masks in 5 mins is estimated to be much higher than 93%. The fabrics are also anti-bacterial and have been proven to kill over 99% of various bacteria including Staphylococcus and Klebsiella Pneumoniae. The anti-bacterial effectiveness has already been proven to last for 60+ Industrial Washes (equivalent to 100+ machine washes/ 150+ gentle washes) as per NABL Accredited Labs in India. The MRP of the mask is between Rs. 300 to Rs. 500, making it really affordable. Additionally, being fabric-based, Thermaissance masks do not use any plastic like melt blown, poly propylene or spunbond, and hence are very environmental friendly.


 
Thermaissance Masks vs N95 Masks

The existing N95 masks are tested to filter up to 95% of particulate matter with a 0.30 micrometers (300 nanometers) diameter. On the other hand, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, is in the size range of 0.06-0.14 microns (60-140 nanometers). There is not much documentary evidence to show that the existing N95 masks have been successful in filtering Covid-19 viruses, which are way smaller in size compared to the size of particulate matter which N95 masks are certified for. Thermaissance masks also have high breathability factor compared to commonly used N95 masks. Moreover, since the viruses and bacteria are killed on the surface of the Thermaissance mask, the wearer stays protected against risk of contact transmission even while touching the surface of the mask.


 
Thermaissance Scrubs for Healthcare Professionals & Covid-19 warriors

During this Covid-19 pandemic, Thermaissance has also introduced Medical Scrubs for Healthcare Professionals using their special smart fabrics. Infact, popularly known as Protective Personal Clothing (PPC), several doctors in isolation units, emergency rooms and outpatient departments are already using Thermaissance’s Medical Scrubs to provide them with protection against infections. They wear these Medical Scrubs beneath their PPE kits. Given that the fabrics has also been proven to be effective against coronavirus, Thermaissance’s Medical Scrubs is expected to be used by more and more healthcare professionals and Covid-19 warriors. 



“We have been using Thermaissance’s scrubs since May. It has provided us with the much-needed protection against various bacteria, which is the common source of secondary infection during this pandemic. The smart fabrics used by Thermaissance are of excellent quality and comfortable to wear in the hospital environment for longer hours.”
