Cosmotex AVB kills 99.9% pathogens

Biodegradable and eco-friendly, the agent is free from silver technology, safe to use, compatible with detergents and does not hamper the colour fastness of fabrics. Cosmotex AVB absorbs on each fiber of the cloth and ruptures the cell wall of the pathogens. With no adverse effects on the quality of fabrics like strength, it can be applied to textiles with detergents or after washing with rinsing cycle.

With this new innovation in hand, Anil Gaikwad, business head, Cosmo Specialty Chemicals, said, “In the current scenario, viruses and bacteria are taking the lives of people at a rapid rate. With the help of our team, at Cosmo Specialty Chemicals, we have created a product which not only ensures the hygiene of your textiles, but also kills 99.9% of the bacteria and viruses present in them.”
