Loyal Textile Mills Limited is engaged in the manufacturing of yarn, cloth, and hosiery cloth. The Company operates in five segments: Yarn Manufacturing, Yarn Trading, Cloth, Cloth Trading, and Garments.

The company has recently launched a line of first-ever anti-viral, reusable Personal Protective Equipment, face masks, and protective fashion wear. Loyal has worked hard to come up with a range of products that will meet the current demand for reliable and reusable protective gear during this pandemic. The company collaborated with Reliance Industries India and HeiQ from Switzerland to innovate this reusable protective PPE, mask, and fashion wear.

R|Elan FeelFresh (from Reliance Industries India) fiber was used in manufacturing this fabric. It is inherently anti-microbial that inhibits any viral or bacterial growth. The fabric is specially treated with “HeiQ Viroblock” the latest technology innovation from Switzerland, proven to have astounding Anti-Viral efficacy of 99.99% against Coronavirus. Loyal Textile Mills Limited has engineered the fabric with a Viral Barrier PU film lamination from Taiwan that makes up as another powerful protective later.

Launching the triple viral shield products from Loyal’s signature brand SUPERA SHIELDT, Mrs. Valli M Ramaswami, Chairperson of Loyal Textile Mills Ltd., said “Loyal Textile Mills Ltd has a heritage of 125 years of continuous existence in Indian Textile Industry. Our R&D Centre recognized by the Government of India and Technical teams have 27 years of experience in Technical Textiles. During Feb/ March 2020, Loyal Management team felt the need to join the war against COVID-19 Pandemic and designed Reusable Masks and PPE Kits and today has reached a stage of offering a range of PPE clothing, masks and a range of fashion wear and casual wear, which have a triple protection technology from viruses and bacteria”.   “This is first of its kind in the world. Guided by the philosophy of our late Chairman Sri Manikam Ramaswami, we will continue to keep abreast of the technology and add several more firsts to our credit, as in the past”, she added.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dhamodaraswamy Devadas, Chief Technology and Business Development Officer of Loyal Textiles Mills Limited said, “This reusable PPE product can be washed ten times and sterilized 10 times for reuse. Heat Sealing PU tapes have been used to seal the seams. All the three components of the PPE have been tested and passed for Viral Penetration test ASTM F 1671 – 2013, Synthetic Blood penetration test ASTM F 1670/F, and the seams have passed SBPR test ASTM 1670-08 (2014). This is the World’s first Reusable PPE that has passed the Viral Penetration Test. ”

Mr. Dhamodaraswamy Devadas, also added, “SS 95 medical respiratory type Mask launched today is a Reusable N95 type of mask with the same level of protection of 95% Particulate Filtration Efficiency and 99.9% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency.
