N 9 XTS 18 is a custom blend of Sanitized® T 20 19 a patented Swiss
quaternary silane technology. It creates a highly cationic charge
density on the textile’s surface, deactivating the spread of the
virus on contact.
Depending upon the type of functional finish, we recommend it to
be applied either in a single bath operation for example can be
applied in single bath with the wicking or cooling finish & in case
of a OWR finish, we recommend N9 XTS-18 to be applied first
followed by OWR finish for best results of both the finishes.
How easily adaptable is this to a mill & current set-up? Would this need a different way of finishing at the mill?
It can be easily run in any mill set-up without making any big
changes. It is cationic in nature. So, it is advisable to separately
add anionic agents like OBA etc. Use standard coating methods
such as padding, saturation, spray, foam, or exhaust.
Can the treated articles be sold as an antiviral product in the USA under the treated articles exemption?
While the product has US EPA registration, the treated articles
cannot be sold as Antiviral as it is a health claim and US EPA
doesn’t permit health claims.
