The recent launch of the stylish and highly effective new anti-viral face masks by Hub industry partners Xefco and HeiQ has gained media attention. Hub researchers played a key role in characterising, testing and refining the new technology, which resulted in the recent launch. The patent-pending technology developed by Xefco, MetalliX™, is the world’s first thin-film antiviral copper treatment for textiles. Read more about the launch in our recent story here.
Reporters from Channel 9 News visited the Institute for Frontier Materials on Friday 14th May to record a story on the masks. The story then went to air during the 4pm and 6pm news that evening.
