YKK has launched its first ViralOff zippers at the Italian trade fair Lineapelle ‘A New Point of View’’ from September 22-23, 2020. The company launched a line of zippers that are tape treated with Viraloff a technology patented by the Swedish company Polygiene, an important global reality for the hygienic treatment of garments which, applied in the finishing phase, eliminates 99 percent of viruses on fabrics in about two hours.
The chemical components of these zippers are eco-sustainable and the treatment of fabrics with an antibacterial product such as Viraloff encourages a reduction in the frequency of washing of the garments, prolonging their life cycle and the consumption of energy, water and chemical additives.
Following a philosophy of the “Cycle of Goodness”, YKK focuses on contributing to the containment of the virus that even a detail such as the zipper can offer. Moreover, the zipper is the protagonist of the motto that completes the YKK logo “Little Parts, Big Difference” and in which the Group has invested for more than 80 years.
