March 05, 2020: TLX WEB15, the world’s first cargo cover to be built from viral barrier material to aid in the fight against Covid-19 (coronavirus) was launched by TLX Cargo.
The company is part of TLX Insulation Ltd, a technology leader in cool chain fabrics.
“The challenge for our customers has been that although they can control their products against viral contamination within their premises, they are unable to assure their customers that the container itself is not contaminated. We took the problem to our partner company Web Dynamics Ltd, who has over twenty years’ experience in manufacturing viral barrier materials,” the company stated in a release.
TLX WEB15 is a breathable, waterproof, cargo cover built from viral barrier material that is being offered to the customers worldwide.
The material has passed testing by Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake City, US, the world’s leading laboratory for viral barrier testing. The Web 15 fabric used in this new cover passed the Nelson test when the bacteriophage applied at a pressure of 14 kPa (2 pounds per square inch) failed to permeate from one side of the material to the other.
The TLX WEB15 cargo cover is a two-part system involving a cover and base, sealed with tape. There is no stitching in the product.
The cover, that exhausts water vapour, uses material that is a barrier to viruses between 0.1 – 0.2 microns. This enables customers to deliver their product confidently as that pallet load is transported and delivered under controlled conditions irrespective of the external environment.
