NORCROSS, Ga. & SCRANTON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PureAir Filtration, the trailblazer in removing corrosive gases, toxic vapors and odors, today announced it has launched a strategic partnership with Noble Biomaterials, the global leader in antimicrobial and conductivity solutions for soft-surface applications. The companies have developed an antimicrobial fiber called FiberShield™ that can be used as an added fabric layer in particulate filters to help fight microbes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
FiberShield™ is made of a proprietary blend of nonwoven nanofibers that are impregnated with antimicrobial Ionic+™ silver technology. The antimicrobial fabric can be used in any particulate filter and is the only one on the market to offer such flexibility to filter manufacturers. FiberShield™ with Ionic+ technology has been tested and proven effective by independent testing laboratories to inactivate over 99% of specific pathogens.
PureAir also debuted a second product in its antimicrobial line called Microbe-sorb™, an adsorbent media that utilizes a proprietary blend of compounds to activate, enhance and deliver the strong antimicrobial properties of permanganate, a material commonly used in medical practices since the early 1800s. Independent laboratory tests show Microbe-sorb inactivates over 99% of microbes on contact.
Both of PureAir’s new products are aimed at mitigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic by focusing on improving air quality through gas, odor and pathogen removal.
