Osmotex Steriliser is a quick, effective, safe and environmentally friendly technology. Through a controlled interaction of moisture and electric pulses we create an anti-viral and anti-bacterial effect inside and on the surface of a textile, proven by the Zürich University of Applied Sciences. For more details on the tests and results, please scroll down and take a look at the reports from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.
Osmotex Steriliser Technology uses active membranes, conductive textiles and electro-osmotic processes to sterilise microorganisms inside and on textiles. Osmotex Steriliser Technology is a unique and ground-breaking technology that creates an active anti-viral and anti-bacterial effect inside and on the surface of textiles.
The Osmotex Steriliser Technology is based on Osmotex’ commercialized core technology, electronically controlled moisture transportation across fabric based on an electro-osmotic process. The technology has a three-layer structure; conductive textile, membrane and conductive textile. The materials are hygroscopic, and absorb water from the air, from humans (e.g. in a face mask) or from sprayed water. By conductors and membranes having selected properties, and by applying the right electric potential to the conductive textiles, a strong sterilizing effect is created inside and on the surfaces of the fabric.
Osmotex will use the Steriliser Technology to sterilise face masks in the short-term, public spaces in the medium term and protective apparel in the long term. Osmotex will initially launch face masks that have a stylish design and go to market as the Osmotex Active Steriliser Face Mask.
Electrochemical reactions as offered by Osmotex Steriliser can be used in development of many new functionalities and applications. Osmotex sees potential for the technology to high-touch surfaces in public spaces, such as seats and interior in public transport, to hospitals and institutions, and to sheets, beds/mattresses and similar at hotels. We expect the Osmotex Steriliser technology to also have a great impact on personal protective apparel.

Following the outbreak of Covid-19, Osmotex has worked intensively and tested the technology to bring the Osmotex Steriliser Technology efficiently to the market. Osmotex has adapted its technology to the global needs following the Covid-19 outbreak in January 2020. We have worked hard with intensive testing and the development of the Osmotex Steriliser Technology. Our internal tests continue to show disinfecting agents exterminating microorganisms such as virus and bacteria. Tests from the Zürich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) verify these results and confirm a 99.98% efficacy on virus and 100% efficacy on bacteria. To help solve the imminent challenges the world is facing, we are working to bring the Osmotex Steriliser Technology rapidly to the market.
