Level 3 Medical Masks: a matter of live or death
Why should you choose a Level 3 medical mask over a non-medical mask?
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) treatment-oriented hospitals are designated with highest level of protection, the use of Level 3 ASTM standards medical mask, to protect their health care workers from being infected.
Airborne, droplet, and contact transmissions are the primary methods of transmission, wearing a level 3 medical mask can significantly reduce airborne and droplet transmissions of COVID-19.
COVID-19 particles have an average diameter of 12 μm and can stay active in air for 3 hours. These small airborne aerosols can be easily inhaled and breathed into the lung. A Level 3 medical mask uses a non-woven melt blown fabric as the middle layer and adopts a three-layer design to effectively filter out and absorb >98% of the aerosols with particle size as tiny as 0.1 μm. The non-woven melt blown fabric cloth was also subjected to electrostatic treatment to facilitate its filtration and absorption capacity.
Our focus is to ensure healthcare workers and individuals get the protection they need on a daily basis.
Our line of Level 3 medical face masks exceeds ASTM standards and are available for personal use and/or clinical workers. The ear-loop design offers comfort and easiness for daily use. Our masks are highly breathable and are made from hypoallergenic and latex-free materials.
Medical masks are used as a standard precaution to protect from pathogen, bacteria, and virus transmission resulting from coughing, sneezing, and talking.
Medical procedure masks are used to reduce direct transmission of infectious agents between individuals by covering the mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, lungs with filtering materials. They can be used as a protection for asymptomatic individuals and a barrier for symptomatic individuals; however, no mask can completely eliminate the risk of exposure to pathogen, bacterial, and/or virus.
Medical masks are single-use products and are considered contaminated after use. The filtration efficiency and protective ability are compromised when masks become wet, torn or dislodged.
What are ASTM Standards for medical masks?
ASTM refers to the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM). The current standards for a medical mask ASTM F2100-19 specifies the following performance requirements:
Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE): The Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) determines the filtration efficiency of the mask in filtering bacteria.
Differential Pressure (Delta P): Differential Pressure measures the air flow resistance of the mask, in other words, a measure of breathability.
Flammability Test: The Flammability test evaluates the flammability of the medical textiles and determines the time of flame spread for the given material.
Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE): The Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE) evaluates the filtration efficiency of the mask in filtering sub-micron particles (similar to filtration of viruses).
Synthetic Blood Penetration (SBP): The Synthetic Blood Penetration (SBP) determines the ability to act as a barrier to blood-borne pathogens.
