Reliance Industries Ltd’s ‘Only Vimal’ brand has received US patent for its DEO2 technology. The DEO2 process technology enables fabric to resist the settlement of micro-organisms keeping it off perspiration odour.
“DEO2 has been granted a patent by the US government’s United Sates Patent & Trademark Office. The Indian government had in July 2015 granted patent to DEO2 technology,” RIL said.
RIL has developed DEO2 fabric processing technology that provides anti-microbial finish on fabric that arrest the growth of fungi and bacteria, keeping the fabric clean and fresh.
RIL’s DEO2 process innovations allows it to process 100% Wool, 100% Rayon, 100% Polyester, Polyester/Viscose, Polyester/Wool and other combination fabrics with anti-microbial coating. RIL claims DEO2 coating provides protection from ill-effects of ultra violet rays emanated from sun rays.
“The US patent award is a testimony to our thrust on the technological innovation,” Pradeep Bhandari, CEO (textiles business) of RIL said.
RIL also added it is focusing on domestic market as typically warm and humid tropical environs in Indian cause perspiration and provide ideal condition for growth of bacterial and fungi on once cloths.
