Rudolf Group is thrilled to unveil the perfected antiviral features embedded in ruco®-bac agp, the company’s flagship antimicrobial product for textile applications.
As a consequence of COVID-19 global pandemic the demand for chemical auxiliaries with antimicrobial effect has boomed. RUDOLF GROUP invested important resources in the meticulous assessment of a new antiviral feature which is now added to one of their leading technologies.
Such an effort returned the surprisingly fast and most comprehensive antibacterial and antiviral textile finishing on the market: RUCO®-BAC AGP.
The microstructures in RUCO®-BAC AGP trigger their powerful antibacterial and antiviral effects based on 3 distinctive inhibiting mechanisms:
- Blocking of oxygen-transporting enzymes therefore leading to impaired growth.
- Crushing of disulfide bonds and therefore structure of sulphur-containing proteins.
- Possible interference with Bacteria and virus surface protein in the membrane.
“This year 2020 is being highly emotional and it’s leading to the widespread introduction of antimicrobials on textile and to a myriad of vague, misleading or unsubstantiated marketing claims”, states Dr. Gunther Duschek, Managing Director at RUDOLF GROUP.
He concludes “As a highly responsible company, we move cautiously and stand for technologies and practices that are effective, truthful and limit the exposure of apparel manufacturers, retailers and buyers to any risk”.
