Treating PES textiles with Sanitized® additives can reduce viral load by up to 99 %. SANITIZED AG celebrates validation from independent laboratories: Tried and tested products Sanitized® T 99-19 and Sanitized® T 11-15 are now verifiably effective against viruses (in accordance with ISO 18184:2019).
