The HeiQ Viroblock® NPJ03 technology has been tested to be 99.99% effective within 30 minutes against SARS-CoV-2*, the COVID-19 causing virus and is designed to inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria enveloped viruses on textile surfaces. Its antiviral and antibacterial properties are due to a unique combination of silver and vesicle technologies designed to significantly reduce viral and bacterial infectivity on treated surfaces.
‘Our industry has been badly affected with the pandemic and we have seen our customers and dealers’ businesses suffer. The treated stretch textile with the HeiQ Viroblock® technology is a game changer for the industry, as it opens the door to fabric displays across retail, exhibition, conference and events. The inherent self-sanitising properties means that the graphic remains germ and microbe resistant without the need to wipe clean.’
Mark McCleery
Managing Director, Ultima Displays


Our tension graphic displays are the mainstay of the industry and we lead the way with MODULATE™, an innovative magnetic display and the Formulate tubular systems, both of which benefit from the new treated textile.

To complement the stretch fabric, a Display Polyester version is also available for use with a variety of wall mounted or freestanding TFS frames.

Untreated Fabric
  • Textiles provide an ideal surface for harboring viruses and bacteria.
  • Viruses and bacteria are re-transmitted from the textile (eg. contact with other surfaces).
Treated Fabric
  • Textiles treated with HeiQ Viroblock® actively inhibit viruses and kill bacteria upon contact on the surface
  • By keeping the textile free of viable viruses and bacteria, HeiQ Viroblock® treated textiles help to minimise the potential for re-transmission of pathogens from textiles
Stringent tests have been carried out to ensure the treated textile with the HeiQ Viroblock® technology has a strong antimicrobial efficacy demonstrated by ISO 20743 and ISO18184. The technology is EU REACH compliant and certified as safe, as all its ingredients are cosmetic grade, bio-based (72% bio-based carbon) and recycled. The treated textile can be cleaned if graphics become dirty by gently washing at 60°C for up to 30 washes, without effecting the antimicrobial** properties. The HeiQ Viroblock® NPJ03 technology is a patent pending technology and is also OEKOTEX® certified, ZDHC and bluesign® homologized.
