Interceptor® Long-Lasting Insecticidal Nets
Interceptor® is a unique, high‑performance mosquito net which demonstrates a fusion of BASF’s expertise in textile development and insect control.
A polymer binder system is combined with Fendona® insecticide and applied directly to the fibers of the nets in a unique treatment process. Fendona®, based on the active ingredient alpha-cypermethrin, is slowly exposed on the polymer surface and rapidly knocks down, kills or repels mosquitoes as they come into contact with the net. This controlled availability of the insecticide ensures long-term effectiveness and the net delivers its protection even after 20 washes. The system also ensures the nets are odorless, soft to the touch and pleasant to sleep under.
100% knockdown at one-hour post exposure – even after the net has been washed 20 times.
The Interceptor® net literally intercepts mosquitoes as they come into contact with the net, thereby preventing them from biting or sucking blood from hosts, and therefore malaria cannot be transmitted.
Fendona® is slowly exposed on the surface of the net and thus remains effective even after 20 washes.
The polymer binder system is invisible and the patented textile-finishing process ensures the nets are odorless, soft to the touch and pleasant to sleep under. All to ensure a good night’s rest.
Because the net is long-lasting, it is highly cost-effective as well as being user-friendly. No dipping. No re-treatment. No mess. No fuss.
Interceptor® has been evaluated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and a full recommendation has been given for its use in malaria prevention and control. Interceptor® exceeds the WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme requirements for long-lasting insecticidal nets. Study results show that Interceptor® nets achieve 100% knockdown at one-hour post exposure and 100% prevention of blood feeding even after 20 washes.
