Antimicrobial: The efficacy of IONIC+ has been tested against bacteria, viruses, fungi and mould. IONIC+ silver thread technology is clinically proven to reduce 99.9% of pathogens on fabric.
It carries various EN and FDA approvals, with the antimicrobial efficacy tested to standards AATCC 100, AATCC 147, JIS L1902, EN ISO 20645, ISO 18184.
Using the ISO 18184 standard, which tests the antiviral activity of any garment or woven material against viruses and specifically tested against Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) the filter material showed a reduction in pathogens of 96.5% after 30 minutes and 98.7% are 1 hour.
Air Flow: the air flow loss is negligible. Results show an air permeability of 1 osy- 510cfm/sqft at a back pressure of 0.5.
Fire Safety: the IONIC+ air filter has certification to the EN 45545-2 standard, and meets the requirements for fire behaviour of materials and components for use within the railway industry.
