MALMÖ, Sweden — August 13, 2020 — WEKO is a German supplier of industrial application systems for surface finishing. Together with Polygiene it will now offer solutions for applying Polygiene ViralOff as a spray of microdroplets. This saves up to 80 percent of water, 80 percent of chemistry and 90 percent of drying energy.
The machines and application solutions will be sold to existing and new customers which include numerous leading textile treatment and manufacturing mills. This means Polygiene will further reinforce their presence in the whole value chain, from branded consumer and professional products brand labels to their partners on the manufacturing side.
“We see the demand for ViralOff in the market, and we wanted to bring our expertise in applications to make this technology even better,” said Tobias Schurr, sales and marketing director at WEKO. “The savings in water, energy and chemical footprint are more than substantial. We also give perfect repeatability of the application, which is important when promising the >99 percent virus reduction of ViralOff.”
“ViralOff is as much a sustainability initiative as it is a part of battling the current and future pandemics,” said Mats Georgson, chief marketing officer, Polygiene. “With ViralOff you can skip maybe 80 percent of washes — there is no ‘just in case’ reasons. And that will save so much on the environment. Now with WEKO we can realize dramatic savings in the production side too.
