Replin Fabric Anti-Viral (RFAV)
Replin Fabric Anti-Viral (RFAV) is a Silver Chloride-based anti-viral treatment proven effective at halting the spread of harmful microorganisms, ideal for use on textiles in the transport market. The latest innovative treatment from Replin by Hainsworth, RFAV protects your fabrics from the transmission of harmful bacteria and enveloped viruses.
RFAV takes the anti-microbial properties of silver, used since the time of the Ancient Greeks, and mounts them on a series of highly sophisticated microstructures to strengthen its protective qualities even further, impairing the growth and spread of viruses. On contact with harmful microorganisms, RFAV blocks the spread of oxygen-transporting enzymes, crushes disulphide bonds to impair growth, and locks the cell membrane to rupture the surface of the organism.
In addition to protecting against viral spread RFAV also shields fabrics against odour-causing bacteria, keeping them both hygienic and fresh.
Protection for the new world
Our approach to long-distance travel has changed dramatically. RFAV has been developed with this new world of transport in mind, and has been assessed against a range of viruses in accordance with ISO 18184:2019. Upon testing it was found that RFAV is immediately effective against viral transmission, making it the ideal protective treatment for the modern traveller.
Safety on every level
RFAV has been demonstrated to be non-migrating and is only active when present in or on the treated textile, leaving you confident in the safety of your customers.
