December 30, 2020 in News

Homework fabrics brand from Gold House Décor has launched a new collection of anti-viral curtains with Amicor™ fibre. The collection is for both home & hospital curtains and is available in a range of colors and designs. The fabrics contain Amicor™ fibre and have shown high level of efficacy against SARS-Cov-2 (Covid-19) virus, tested as per ISO 18184:2019 test standards. The results show a kill rate of 99% of the viruses in just 15 seconds. Amicor™ is an anti-microbial fibre from Thai Acrylic Fibre Co. Ltd., which is specially engineered by incorporating additives into the core of the fibre. The fibre has shown its effectiveness against bacteria, fungi and lately against viruses.

“We have seen a surge in demand for anti-microbial products from our customers since the pandemic. We have been a close partner of TAF and have been using their various other fibres. When it comes to anti-microbial product, there was no need to look beyond Amicor™. With only 33% of Amicor™ in our fabrics, we have excellent results against the SARS-Cov-2 virus in our fabrics. Not only that, Amicor™ has proven durability to upto 100 washes which makes the curtains almost permanently anti-microbial. There is already a lot of excitement in our team and the customers on the product and we will be developing many more products in addition to the curtains with Amicor™”, says Mr. Thaveechai Sirikulthada, Director of Gold House Décor.

“We are of course very pleased with the recent adoption of Amicor™ in various end-uses. This range of curtains developed by Gold House is the first time use of Amicor™ in curtains and it is very satisfactory to see the performance against SARS-Cov-2 virus. Amicor™ has been one of the most desirable fibres when it comes to hygienic products and has been one of the more preferred fibres when it comes to anti-bacterial and anti-fungal functions. With the new tests done against SARS-Covid-2 virus, Amicor™ now offers the highest level of protection against all the three kinds of micro-organisms – bacteria, fungus and viruses”, says Tuhin Kulshreshtha, Head of Marketing, Value Added Products, TAF.

This is the second anti-microbial range developed by Bulliontex (the parent group of Gold House). Last month a collection of outdoor furniture fabrics using Durashine™ solution dyed acrylic fibre and Amicor™ was launched by them in IFAI Expo.
