Hong Kong and Scranton, PA – July 7, 2020 – Julius Group and Noble Biomaterials today announced the launch of a strategic partnership to produce reusable antiviral/antibacterial gloves and masks for consumer use. Amid the global pandemic, the two companies are partnering to allow Julius Group to manufacture antimicrobial/antiviral PPE using Noble Biomaterials’ powerful Ionic+™ Antimicrobial Technology.

The reusable antibacterial gloves and mask will incorporate 99.9% pure silver woven directly into the fabric, which in turn provides a dramatic reduction in virus viability on soft surfaces. The consumer products will be released through InnoTier (official launched by Julius Group recently) - an innovation-driven company with a mission to develop products that help people live a more sustainable life.

By ~ this with a passion and purpose for improving the world around us, we believe that we can deliver innumerable societal benefits. Noble Biomaterials is a great partner because we share a similar philosophy in bringing innovative solutions aimed at healthcare, logistics, college education and the day-to-day consumer.”

Noble Biomaterials’ infection-prevention textile technology has been used globally for decades in healthcare environments to reduce the growth of microbes and protect soft surfaces such as privacy curtains, bedding, scrubs and lab coats.
