Why Protexa?

At Protexa we are equally committed to protecting people and protecting our planet. First and foremost, while our world is going through a global crisis which we have not seen in our lifetime, we know that small changes in habits can have major effects on spreading of coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as other airborne illness-causing bacteria and viruses.

The World Health Organisation, along with a huge number of governments are now advising wearing face-coverings to help slow down rates of infection.

While peoples health is a priority, we are also concerned about the billions of disposable plastic masks and gloves which will inevitably end up in our environment, adding to the global textile waste problem which has been highlighted in recent years by well-publicised studies on micro-plastics polluting our oceans and harming fragile wildlife populations.

By using our range of washable and re-usable face and hand protection, you are helping both the people around you, and the environment in which we live.

What is EOC?

Evolution of Cotton (EOC) is a multiple award-winning green technology that was born from a story of true innovation and is set to transform the textile manufacturing industry.

Our EOC collection is an advancement in protective garment and face-mask design that offers superior protection for professionals and the public entering biologically hazardous work environments or social spaces.

Whereas other existing PPE face-mask technologies can only provide a comparatively low level of bio-protection, our newly developed sustainable and ecologically sound EOC materials naturally possess strong anti-bacterial and infection preventative properties, making them vastly more effective at enhancing biosafety than any sustainable and reusable mask on the market.

Furthermore, the use of EOC textiles which are safe, toxin-free and organic makes our products highly eco-friendly, thus tackling the major issue of eco-waste created by PPE made from synthetic textiles. Making Protexa an excellent solution for individuals or companies seeking to reduce their environmental impact and meet green-quotas.

The numerous impressive benefits of which include:

  • Fire retardant

EOC cotton is 30% less flammable than conventional synthetic fabrics that use toxic chemicals such as bromine and fluorine for fire retardancy

  • EMF shielding

EOC cotton fabrics are capable of holding up to 20% neutrons, which lowers exposure to EMF radiation

  • Durable and reusable

Despite being a soft material EOC cotton is far more durable than other industrial textile products and is 968(N) compared to the standard 250(N). Its unique features and properties are all permanent. In a test comprised of 45 washes conducted at 40° EOC lost only 18% of its qualities, but after 50 washes no further loss of functional quality was recorded

  • Water Absorption

EOC has a homogeneous surface that provides excellent hydrophilicity and a water absorption time of 1 second compared to the accepted standard of 5-10 seconds. Due to high liquid dispersion EOC cotton fabric dries quicker and faster

All of these unique features of EOC cotton make our PPE products excellently suited for use in the medical, travel, hotel, catering, military, office industries. And we are extremely proud to be able to supply a wide range of organisations with this vital, cutting edge protective wear.
