Design & Technology
Our 30X Mask and 30X SafeSleeve products are treated with the innovative HeiQ NPJ03 Antimicrobial protection.
This intelligent Swiss textile technology is added to the fabric during the final stage of the textile manufacturing process. The treatment is CERTIFIED as safe and sustainable as all its ingredients are cosmetic grade, bio-based (72% bio-based carbon) (4) recycled and approved by the USA EPA. This textile technology makes the surface of textiles resistant to microbes and germs.
BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency), otherwise referred to as filtration, measures how well the mask filters out bacteria when challenged with a bacteria-containing aerosol. ASTM specifies testing with a droplet size of 3.0 microns containing Staph. aureus (average size 0.6-0.8 microns). In order to be called a medical/surgical mask, a minimum 95% filtration rate is required.
Delta P (Pressure Differential), otherwise referred to as breathability, measures the air flow resistance of the mask and is an objective measure of breathability. The higher the Delta P value, the harder it is for the wearer to breathe. The Delta P is measured in units of mm H2O/cm2. The ASTM standard requires that masks have a Delta P of less than 5.0.
