How Folia's nano-silver coating works as an antiviral

  • Antiviral silver kills virus on the mask
  • Viruses survive on the outside of conventional masks and are transferred to your face by touch
  • Folia’s antiviral coating releases silver into virus-laden water droplets
  • Silver destroys the virus
  • How silver destroys the virus
  • Breaks down viral machinery before entering the body
  • Damages viral surface proteins which then cannot bind to human cell surface receptors
  • Silver binds to the virus and prevents its molecular machinery from operating, preventing replication
