96% effective at stopping viruses penetrating the shield
protect yourself and your family from viruses
The Virustatic Shield helps slow the spread of viruses like no other face mask currently on the market. Its revolutionary protein coating disables viruses on contact.
The full face snood is lightweight and can be worn with comfort for hours at a time. It is safe to handle, reusable and effective for up to 10 washes.
It is the result of 10 years of research and testing—a collaboration between Virustatic and The Manchester Institute of Biotechnology and other academic institutions.
The Virustatic Shield (manufactured in the UK by Carrington Textiles) has been proven in the lab to be 96% effective against influenza. It also works against: Coronavirus, SARS, MERS, The common cold.
Coronavirus infects its host by binding to receptors in the upper respiratory tract. Once there it can cause coughs, fever, breathing difficulties and, in severe cases, organ failure. Each coronavirus is wrapped in a protein “envelope”. Virustatic Shield’s innovative fabric coating disrupts this protective membrane, killing the virus. Virustatic Shield’s cationic properties mean it works on a virus even though it is 400 times smaller than a human hair—and easily small enough to pass through material.
