The ERT group has just presented the results of the Active TNT project, created with the aim to innovate and provide answers in the fight against the pandemic. The results are a set of personal protection equipment such as new-generation masks, caps, cuffs, shoes and surgical gowns.
The goal of the Active TNT project was to obtain personal protective equipment with antimicrobial and antiviral characteristics, and increased durability and resistance. An example is the surgical gowns made from a bi-laminate with TNT and protective film, with the TNT being on the inside to allow greater comfort, and the film acting as an external barrier to the droplets. The products are certified by CITEVE.
ERT also presented an innovative mask capable of detecting if someone has a fever. The lining is made of cotton to ensure comfort during long and repetitive contact against the skin; protection is ensured by TNT, which does the filtering; and the outer part is made of thermo and hydrochromatic materials that change colour when in contact with heat.
