XTIO2 Self-Cleaning Global Travel Facemask with Record Year of Orders Features at the RAND Luxury Technology Event
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) showcased its
world-exclusive self-cleaning XTIO2 GLOBAL Travel Facemask for
travelers with the world's highest protection: 100%, proven by SGS U.S.
The revolutionary XTIO2 GLOBAL Travel Facemask is GREEN and the
only product of its kind designed specifically to provide travelers the
best sustainable personal protection. It's based on XTIO2 Inc.'s new
generation of world-exclusive nanocoating technology utilizing
sunlight/indoor light to activate TIO2-particles to break down germs and
air pollution (VOCs) into water and nano-amounts of CO2. The proven
self-cleaning function protects its users from cross-contamination, e.g.
spreading germs from one surface to another by contact.
XTIO2 GLOBAL Facemask received record-setting orders with full capacity
for 2014, a 400% growth from the previous year. Facemasks have grown
into a multi-billion dollar industry in Japan, Taiwan, China and other
Asia regions where wearing a mask is a common practice.
Demand for the breathable and comfortable mas is expected to grow in
2015, driven by high flu rates this season. Pandemics are feared because
the strains mutate fast (H3N2), spread from animals to people (H10N8),
and develop ability to get transmitted from person-to-person (H7N9).
Threats including severe air pollution (haze PM2.5), norovirus,
drug-resistant superbug infections such as MRSA, MERS, and tuberculosis
have brought up awareness of critical need for personal protection by
wearing a facemask in crowded public spaces and public transportation
(train/bus/plane). When a sick person coughs/sneezes, germs spread into
the air where they can float for several hours. People who breathe in
the air containing the germs can become infected. The risk increases in
pressurized and contained spaces (e.g. airplanes).
"Viruses thrive in high altitude and dry environments, affecting the
body's ability to fight infection. A study showed that when a plane was
stuck on a tarmac for 3 hours, 72% of the passengers got flu from one
sick person," says Dr. Keri Peterson (Source (News - Alert):MSNBC).
