The TEX4SafeCare project aims to develop a line of innovative products with antimicrobial properties (virus/bacteria) and to alert the user to possible contamination, reducing these articles' ability to be a source of infection and avoiding the spread of COVID-19. We intend to develop a new range of products with added value in combating Covid-19 through expeditious systems for signalling contamination, the study and development of new antimicrobial properties, and sustainable processes. The main target market for these products is care homes and charities though they will also be of interest for the hotel, restaurant (in the case of curtains) and home areas.
