Best protection against Covid-19


The ProXmask90V is made of comfortable, stretchable fabric.

PROLEXUS has launched its new revolutionary anti-virus protective mask ProXmask90V that could provide optimal protection against Covid-19.

Designed and engineered with its ProX technology, the ProXmask90V is marketed as being able to inactivate 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 that causes Covid-19, other coronaviruses as well as influenza viruses and bacteria.

The anti-virus technology in the mask fabric, developed with an European textile chemical manufacturer, features the presence of active positive charges on the fabric – as binding sites for viruses.

Upon contact with the fabric, the virus cells that are negatively charged are neutralised, leading to rapid destruction of its glycoprotein layers.

During the testing stage, the treated fabric was contaminated with a known concentration of SARS-CoV-2. The measurement that followed showed a reduction of over 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 on the fabric relative to the inoculum control.

The mask also comes with a water repellency feature and is fitted with an innovative self-developed microfiltration structure, which captures and deactivates viruses and bacteria down to a microscopic scale of 1,000 times smaller than a millimetre.

ProXmask90V is engineered to deliver a five-layer protection through the application of advanced textile technology. It is manufactured by Honsin Apparel Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Prolexus, with its manufacturing licence approved by the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA).

“We are actively encouraging local manufacturers to diversify or repurpose their businesses into producing personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks. This will bolster the production of PPE in Malaysia,” said MIDA chief executive officer Datuk Azman Mahmud.

“ProXmask90V is washable and reusable up to 60 times,” said Prolexus innovation and development manager Dr Harintharavimal Balakrishnan.

“It is more cost effective compared to purchasing 120 disposable masks. People have overlooked the environmental impact of disposable masks in our fight against Covid-19. In the current pandemic, if millions were to use two disposable masks a day, we will generate tonnes of landfill waste.”
