Ruby Mills Launches H+ Technology For COVID-19 Protection


The Ruby Mills Limited, a leader in fabric engineering and interlining since 1917, has launched H+ Technology to help people protect from novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The H+ Technology has shown more than 99 per cent microbe reduction on a range of dangerous microbes such as Staph. Aureus, K. Pneumonie, Ps. Aeruginosa and most importantly MRSA.

"Even after 30 washes, the microbe reduction remains above 99 per cent in an independent lab testing, making it an extremely dependable technology," the company said in a statement.

Since protection from the virus on clothing is one of the perplexing problems during the current COVID-19 crisis, Ruby Mills has been doing research and development on H+ Technology, anti-viral, anti-microbial, and antifungal protection with trials ranging from using fibres to finishes to deliver the efficacy.

The H+ Technology active ingredient has been tested at the Guang Dong Detection Centre of Microbiology. It was found to be 99 per cent effective against the H1N1 Influenza Virus (Corona Virus & SARS are a part of this family), when used correctly with fabrics. The formulation has proven to retain the efficacy over 30 wash cycles. 

“Ruby Mills has always been at the forefront of innovation in fabrics. In face of the challenge of COVID-19 outbreak, we are ready to launch H+ Technology based fabric range into the market. This will greatly help the common man stay protected in the times of the pandemic,” said Viraj Shah, MD, The Ruby Mills.

As the 103-year young Ruby Mills rolls out this innovation, "it is being seen as a significant trigger that would help restart the industry wheels," the statement said.
