Textile Firm On Spain  S Costa Blanca Produces Colour Changing Mask To Help In Battle Against Covid 19

A TEXTILE printing company has produced a reusable mask that turns from green to white if the wearer gets a high temperature and possibly COVID-19.

The heat-sensitive fabric has been created by Colorprint Fashion in Muro de Alcoy.

Company founder, Rafael Torregrosa said: “We’ve had a fantastic response as the material helps health workers to detect possible infections and to stop the spread of the coronavirus.”

The fabric changes colour when it reaches approximately 37.5 degrees Celsius, and has been approved for official use in masks by the Textile Technological Institute (AITEX).

The material also has a high bacteria filtration rate of 98 per cent and keeps its high level of protection after washing and disinfection.

Colorprint says that the fabric can also be used in bracelets or sticky patches to detect temperature rises.
