Tungtex combines style and safety with three-layer mask design
The fashionable Tmask protects users through its internationally patented antiviral technology.
Tungtex Holdings Company Limited clinches the Designed in Hong Kong Award 2020 in the Textiles Category, thanks to its three-layer mask design.
Face masks have become the trendiest fashion item of 2020. But masks are not accessories; these should be designed to protect users against airborne pathogens. This is why Tungtex Holdings has designed the Tmask, a three-layer face mask that guarantees safety without sacrificing style.
The mask’s first layer is treated with the HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03, a patented material designed to make textiles more resistant to bacteria and viruses. HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 is an intelligent Swiss textile technology that is added to the fabric during the final stage of the textile manufacturing process. It has been proven to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 and is suitable for all fabric types. It is also certified safe and sustainable as all of its ingredients are organic and cosmetic-grade. The HeiQ Viroblock is completely hypoallergenic, and creates a self-sanitising and germ-resistant surface
Tmask’s second layer offers unmatched antimicrobial protection with technology to deliver silver ions which eliminate pathogens. The second layer is further treated with a water-repellent finish to enhance protection.
With its double antimicrobial coating, the Tmask keeps wearers safe by actively preventing the growth of viruses. But protection does not need to come at the cost of style and comfort. The mask’s third layer features a pure silk lining treated with skin-friendly materials such Vitamins E, A, and hyaluronic acid, ensuring that the mask can be worn easily even for extended periods.
The mask has a three-dimensional cut to ensure breathability. It also has a coated aluminum nose wire to help keep it in place, and an adjustable ear strap to ensure a snug fit. Tmask comes in a variety of colors and prints to suit every taste. It is completely reusable and can be washed up to 50 times whilst still maintaining its antimicrobial function.
