iFabric Corp Announces Breakthrough in EPA Public Health Claims Approval Process With Initial Registration of PROTX2 for Use in Non-Apparel Products


MARKHAM, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2023 / iFabric Corp. ("iFabric" or the "Company") (TSX:IFA)(OTCQX:IFABF), today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary company, Intelligent Fabric Technologies (North America) Inc. ("IFTNA"), has received a United States Environmental Agency ("EPA") registration for PROTX2® as a "Continually Self-Sanitizing Textile". This registration allows textiles treated with the PROTX2 technology, to make public health claims for use in non-apparel products, which includes, curtains, carpeting and home furnishing fabrics, amongst others.

"This new EPA registration is an extremely positive step forward, as public health claims for non-apparel products will help drive adoption of our textile treatments for those uses. That being said, we remain committed to obtaining comprehensive public health claims across all textile categories and that broader application process remains in process," said Giancarlo Beevis President and CEO of IFTNA. "Under this new registration, qualifying textile products integrating PROTX2, are now able to make a number of meaningful public health claims including:

  • PROTX2® Treated Textiles - Kills 99.99% of bacteria in 10 mins, with nonstop disinfection for 24 hours;
  • Kills pathogenic bacteria;
  • Kills 99.99% of bacteria non-stop for 24 hours; and
  • Continuously disinfects bacteria after 24 hours of continuous use without washing.

With this registration in hand, we can immediately make "kill claims" on a selection of products within non-apparel market sectors, creating an important catalyst to attract new customers representing significant market segments within home, office and healthcare settings," concluded Mr. Beevis.


ProTX2® is a powerful eco-friendly technology that provides antibacterial, antimicrobial, antimold, anti-mildew, and anti-odor protection. When treated, each textile fiber is fundamentally transformed through PROTX2®'s technology, providing proprietary unrivaled protection against pathogens associated with healthcare-associated infections as well as the toughest odors, for medical and performance textiles.
