On January 26, Casall in collaboration with Polygiene launches a completely unique training glove treated with Polygiene ViralOff® technology. The treatment has in an ISO18184:2019 test* shown a reduction of virus by over 99% within 2 hours on treated materials. The test has been performed on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, causing COVID-19, among other viruses.
This is the start of the collaboration with the Swedish company Casall Sport AB, which has been developing premium training clothes and home training equipment since 1984. They have strong roots in Sweden and the Nordic countries, with additional presence in a total of 20 markets worldwide.
“There is a huge demand for products with antiviral properties right now. With Polygiene ViralOff®, we can protect surfaces from viruses and thereby create added value for the treated product, in addition to the fact that the product in principle does not need to be washed and will therefore also last significantly longer. We look forward to a long-term collaboration with Casall and hope to add additional function to more of their unique products for the home gym, an area where our wholly owned subsidiary Addmaster has specialist knowledge”, says Ulrika Björk, CEO of Polygiene.
“We always strive to be at the forefront when it comes to product innovation and are therefore very happy to be able to launch this unique glove. Wearing a full coverage training glove at the gym can in itself be an effective way to refrain from touching your face. In addition, the ViralOff® treatment ensures that any viruses on the gloves are eliminated before each new use. The glove is designed for a training environment but can of course be used in other everyday situations”, says Nanna Hedlund, CEO of Casall Sport.
