“The Spread Ends Here”! We proudly introduce our first fully Anti-Microbial XGermination line of products. These gloves protect the user from exposure to Anti-Microbial agents through the point of contact. They also help prevent the spread of them. All 3 gloves have been tested and proved to block contamination through the use of Anti-Microbial fabric. Please review case study below. The gloves are reusable and effective for up to 35 washes. Be proactive in stopping the spread!

Making XGermiNATION antimicrobial products takes time and ingenuity
The treatment of the pre-made, imported nylon gloves with antimicrobial metallic salts is a several step process.
The first step involves removing materials that are used to help yarn move more easily through the manufacturing machinery. This is done by thoroughly washing and drying the gloves.
The cloth is then put into a proprietary aqueous solution which has silver as the active ingredient. After soaking for a period of time, the excess is centrifuged out and the cloth is then heated to a temp that will cause the antimicrobial material to penetrate and permanently attach to the nylon fibers. The temp at which this happens will exceed the temperature reached by any conventional dryer, which makes the treatment durable, even when put in the washer and dryer.
Once the chemicals are set into the surface of the fiber, it actually shrinks a bit. We then wash and dry the cloth once again to remove any excess chemical and relax the fiber which also helps expand the cloth back to something very close to what it was before the high temp treatment.
Then it is time to inspect and individually package the gloves.
The gloves are treated with a solution which contains antimicrobial silver. The solution is also used in military specialty clothing and has passed many tests to confirm its antimicrobial qualities. Covid-19 lives for various times on various surfaces i.e. cotton, metal, cardboard, skin etc. These gloves are designed to reduce the time the virus may live on the surface of the glove vs your hand (where it can easily be transmitted to your mouth and eyes). The Company that manufactures the specialty wash has completed some preliminary testing on textiles that have been treated this way. Please see White Paper below.
The product is intended to be used by those who must be out and about to work, shop, take care of loved ones and deliver essential goods. They are designed to help reduce their risk. They are designed to be comfortable and should not be considered a replacement for sterile latex, which for one-time use and removed correctly will provide complete protection, however, must be replaced repeatedly. Please do not consider our gloves as a product that will keep you completely safe from getting sick from the current Corona or any other virus; rather, that your gloves will help to reduce the probability of getting sick. No product can completely eliminate the risk as far as we know. Our gloves are also machine washable and we recommend washing them between uses, especially when potential exposure to the virus has occurred.
Helping to maintain the health and well-being of our customers is the reason we have developed this product. We also recommend the use of masks when in public spaces. XGermiNATION has also developed MASKS that are treated with the same antimicrobial formula.
Obviously, staying home is still the best way to avoid the virus.
WHITE PAPER EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: EFFICACIOUSNESS OF EXTERNAL ANTI-MICROBIAL TREATMENTS FOR FIBEROUS MATERIALS
Antiviral properties of selected Sanitized® products on polymer surfaces are confirmed.
Tests conducted by independent laboratories in accordance with ISO 21702:2019 have now confirmed that several Sanitized® products including T-1115 and have an efficacy against viruses on hard, nonporous surfaces.
Tests were performed using a feline coronavirus with structures and mechanisms similar to SARSCov2.
Comprehensive hygiene management is gaining in importance in the Corona crisis. Sanitized® additives are the perfect tool for an antiviral and antibacterial treatment of different polymer types which play a
central role in healthcare applications, technical applications, mattress protectors, public transportation, food industry or everyday necessities.
