How does VIROFORMULA™ work?

Albini Group presents the new VIROFORMULA™ fabrics with HeiQ Viroblock.

This cutting-edge technology prevents the fabrics from becoming a host for harmful viruses and bacteria and as a consequence reducing the risk and speed of contamination and re-transmission.

VIROFORMULA™ fabrics actively inhibit viruses and kill bacteria upon contact on the surface in a few minutes.

What's the technology behind VIROFORMULA™?

The technology behind VIROFORMULA™ fabrics allows protection from bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus which causes Covid-19.

The chemical-textile elements allow to destroy viruses thanks to the breakthrough combination of:

  • silver-based technologies which generate antiviral reactions by attracting viruses and permanently binding them to their sulfur groups;
  • the fatty vesicle technology (Liposomes) which works as a booster that destroys viruses by depleting the viral membrane of its cholesterol content.


VIROFORMULA™ fabrics have been created for all types of clothing, making them ideal for the production of shirts, jackets and trousers, as well as for masks, gowns and any other garment.

The application of this treatment does not change the physical and mechanical properties of the fabrics. The effect of textile finishing lasts up to 30 washes at a mild temperature.

What VIROFORMULA™ was tested for?

The products used in the VIROFORMULA ™ treatment are certified by HeiQ according to the ISO 20743, ISO 18184 and AATCC 100 standards for their antibacterial and antiviral characteristics. They have also been tested for the safety of people and are dermatologically non-irritating, harmless to the skin and body and environmentally sustainable.

VIROFORMULA ™ fabrics by Albini Group have been tested for their effectiveness by Microbe Investigations, Bureau Veritas and Guangdong Detection Center of Microbiology.


“In this critical and uncertain period in which we find ourselves today, we decided not to stop: on the contrary, we continued looking for innovative solutions and products, in order to face these new challenges. Because for us, innovation means interpreting the future, to improve our present.”
