Vital protection against insect bites

A single fabric application will provide 3 months protection and last for 30 wash cycles.


Vital Protection from HHL Technology is a highly effective insect repellent fabric treatment, that when applied to fabric safeguards the user from biting insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, midges and other insects.  Vital Protection is a unique product, created to help protect against diseases like Malaria and tick bite fever by inhibiting mosquitoes and reducing insect bites.

This product is ideal for use on outdoor fabrics, home textiles, linen, clothing, shoes, sportswear and outdoor equipment (e.g. tents and sleeping bags) that will be used on adventure travels and camping. In countries where mosquitoes and biting insects are prevalent, there is no limit for scope and this is one of the many reasons that HHL Technology’s Vital Protection is endorsed by the South African Society of Travel Medicine (SASTM). 

HHL Technology is the international innovative leader in multi-functional fabric technologies and has developed Vital Protection as a safer alternative to Deet based products meaning it is non-irritant and safe to use.  A single fabric application will provide 3 months protection and last for 30 wash cycles. The product is also odourless once applied, so you won’t even know that it is there.  

Vital Protection is avaliable in two application methods. The Soak and Dry fabric treatment is a textile application that protects you from insects, especially mosquitoes by simply soaking your mosquito nets and clothes. Soak and Dry allows the user to treat up to 1kg of fabric in a single application and is available in an extremely convenient 20ml sachet which is simply mixed with water.

The AM2 Spray-on provides all the benefits of Vital Protection in a versatile fabric spray and is an essential product to prevent malaria. Like all of HHL Technology’s products, AM2 is safe, effective and easy to use. All one has to do is simply spray on your clothing from hats, jackets, trousers, socks, shoes and outdoor gear, allow to dry, and you will be protected against insects and those pesky mosquitoes.
