Copper masks that protect more against COVID - 19 and can be reused up to 50 times
A simple mask has become a gold mine for Chilean SME CoureTex, the only company that manufactures copper masks and has seen its business skyrocket with the coronavirus pandemic as orders from the most affected countries have increased.
"We are 15 employees. Before the coronavirus crisis we sold about 20,000 masks a month, " the company explained in a statement. The increase in demand has been so radical that the company is working with its maximum production capacity: half a million masks a month.
"It was not necessary to increase the number of employees, but we did have to buy new machines," they explain.
At a time when markets are short of protective equipment, CoureTex antibacterial fabric allows masks to be washed and reused.
"It can be washed up to 50 times with any chlorine-free detergent, by hand, like any delicate clothing. Being reusable makes it much more convenient, as disposable masks have to be removed after each use, " they explain.
The SME has been running at full throttle since China ordered 6 million masks in January, as copper is a great protector against coronavirus, and admits that it has to offer its customers much lower amounts than they ask for.
In addition to masks, CoureTex also manufactures other items such as insoles, masks or gloves. The products are certified in Chile by Lictex, in America by Senai and in the European community by Intertek.
The SME has a very particular origin. On the one hand, owners Mauricio and Oscar Silva, followed with anguish the case of the 33 miners trapped in the San Jose mine in 2010. The Miners suffered from fungal infections, something common among the profession, and the Silva thought about creating and marketing a fabric that could protect them in the future, explains Efe.
It was also personal for the family. "It arose out of a family need. A relative of mine died from intrahospital infection, so I wanted to make an antibacterial cloth to prevent this from happening to more people," explains the company's founder.
After acquiring a "patent of invention" in 2018, the owners of the Chilean Couretex assure that they are the only company that manufactures this type of product worldwide.
"Masks were one more of the products we had and since coronavirus is the best-selling. I never imagined that they would be so successful", reflect from the company, that I work for many years on the product until I manage to start marketing it.
The main markets of CoureTex are Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Argentina and Chile. Although the company warns that it is not authorized to disclose the names of its customers, it says that it has sent masks to Andalusia, Barcelona and Lleida.
The SME confirms that Spain is its main customer in Europe: "we have sold approximately 1.2 million masks".
The company recognizes that the price of its masks may be higher than a traditional mask, "but its use is long-term and its level of protection is much higher," they note.
CoureTex sells both wholesale and retail, with a base price of about 5.3 euros per unit in small sales, explains Efe.
