Morarjee Introduces ViroShield Protective Fabrics


Morarjee Textiles Ltd, a vertically integrated textile company manufacturing high-end products in prints, dyed and yarn dyed fabrics in a variety of substrates, has launched ViroShield range of protective finishes in collaboration with Australia-based Health Guard Corporation Pvt Ltd.

ViroShield by Morarjee meets anti-viral efficacy of 99.99% on all corona strains including Covid-19, as per ISO18184 anti-viral test and Bacteriostatic efficacy test ISO 20743. The fabrics have a special chemical molecule which destroys the envelope cell wall of the virus, and as a result the virus dies. Thus, it helps in minimising the chance of re-transmission of pathogens by killing viruses and bacteria upon contact with the fabric. “As a leading supplier of premium and niche fabric to the global brands, we bring the anti-viral fabric ViroShield from the house of Morarjee,” said Mr Harsh Piramal, Vice-Chairman of Morarjee Textiles Ltd. ViroShield is compatible with all textile substrates and gives protection from droplets and fluids. In addition to being anti-viral and anti-bacterial, the finish is anti-odour, hygienic, skin compatible, non-irritating, and has no impairment on hand feel.
