While our country continues to fight the war against the COVID-19 pandemic, V Technical Textiles Inc. has retooled our cut and sew shop to produce face masks using our antimicrobial silver cotton jersey material. VTT will be continuing its practice of donating masks to the healthcare providers that are working on the front line of this battle in hospitals and medical settings that require our much-needed support.
Thank you for the overwhelming response that we have received from everyone who wants to join us in our efforts at this time to support our women and men on the front lines of this war against COVID-19. VTT has heard your message requesting that these masks being made accessible to everyone.
We will be publishing the pricing of the masks for personal and business use. At that time, the masks will be available for purchase. Please stay tuned to our website for updates on other antimicrobial products that will soon be available.
A donation of a silver jersey mask will be made for every purchase of a silver jersey mask to the medical professionals who are treating the victims of this the COVID-19 virus.
Silver in application with face mask
Viruses work on a mechanism to alter the DNA structure of cells which in turn produces mutant cells. In a face mask, as you breathe out, moisture expels along with bodily fluids containing human cells, providing the kind of media needed for a virus to activate. When a virus comes in contact with a human cell, it attaches itself and begins altering the DNA of the cell and creating mutated cells. These mutated cells are aerobic and still have the receptors for oxygen. Silver, having similar polarity to oxygen, lodges itself into these receptors, preventing the oxygen ions from being absorbed, thus killing the mutated cells. Moisture will free silver ions, and this can also help fight off resulting infection in the upper airway.
