What is COVID-19?

Understanding the Virus

The principal form of transformation of COVID-19 is the inhalation of infected airborne droplets exhaled by an infectious person whilst coughing or sneezing. The virus can also be transmitted via surfaces (including fabrics) that have been in direct contact with an infectious person.

The Risk of

Non-Treated Masks

When ever you pickup, put on, adjust or remove a non-treated mask, you are at risk of transferring bacteria/viruses (such as COVID-19) from the surface of the mask to your hands. You then further risk transmitting it from your hands to your face.


HeiQ Viroblock Treatment

HeiQ is a Swiss textile Technology company that has developed a highly effective fabric treatment called HeiQ Viroblock, which is added to our 1TCA face mask and snoods during manufacturing.

How does

HeiQ Viroblock Work?

“This is achieved via a combination of HeiQ’s silver & vesicle technology: the silver technology attracts the oppositely charged viruses and binds permanently to their sulfur groups. Subsequently, the fatty spherical vesicle technology (Liposomes) helps to deplete the viral membrane of its cholesterol content in minutes, therefore the silver can destroy the virus rapidly.”


1 TcA Masks

Both the 1TCA mask and snood are treated with HeiQ Viroblock. HeiQ Viroblock is a product that treats the fabric with biocidal silver to prevent contamination by Germs and Microbes. (a) Contains a biocide (b) to protect the textile from microbes and germs. (c) Active ingredient: Reaction mass of titanium dioxide and silver chloride.


No device can guarantee 100% protection against viruses. The 1TcA mask and snood effectiveness is improved when used alongside government-issued hygiene guidelines.
