Open or Close How is the performance of VP Bacto Protect for Textiles tested?

The performance is rigorously tested for properties such as hydrophobicity, oleophobicity, antibacterial activity, and durability. Tests include water droplet tests, spray tests, antibacterial activity determination according to international standards, and efficacy against viruses like SARS-CoV-2.

Open or Close What is the composition of VP Bacto Protect for Textiles?

It consists of SiO2 dissolved in water, with each 100g solution containing 0.02499g Triclosan. The formulation is designed to provide effective antimicrobial properties while being safe for use.

Open or Close How is VP Bacto Protect for Textiles applied?

It is a ready-to-use solution applied by spraying onto cleaned textiles. Optimal protection is achieved by spraying 2-3 times wet-on-wet on the textile surface, followed by spreading excess liquid if necessary. Hardening time varies but is typically complete after 24 hours at ambient temperature.

Open or Close How should stains be treated on textiles treated with VP Bacto Protect?

Stains should be treated immediately by absorbing with a cloth without rubbing. For persistent stains, mild surfactant cleaners can be used, followed by rinsing with clear water. Care instructions from the textile manufacturer should be followed for best results.

Open or Close What factors affect the durability of VP Bacto Protect for Textiles?

The durability depends on the type and frequency of cleaning and care. Proper maintenance, following recommended procedures, helps maintain the effectiveness of the nanocoating over time.

Open or Close Are colour changes normal after applying VP Bacto Protect for Textiles?

Yes, slight colour changes can occur due to various factors such as surface structures, applications, and environmental influences. These changes do not affect the performance of the product and are not considered grounds for complaint.

Open or Close What is the shelf life and storage requirement for VP Bacto Protect for Textiles?

The unopened product has a shelf life of at least 2 years when stored between +4°C to +30°C. Once opened, it should be used within 6 months for optimal performance.

Open or Close How does VP Bacto Protect withstand abrasion and weathering?

VP Bacto Protect undergoes testing for abrasion resistance and longevity to ensure its durability over time. It can withstand artificial weathering and maintains its effectiveness even after prolonged exposure to environmental conditions.
