How many times can I wash it? The antimicrobial treatment will last up to 30 washes
Can I wear it after the antimicrobial is worn off? Yes, wear it as long as you like
Are these masks medical grade? No, currently they are not rated for medical use
How does the antimicrobial effect the mask and protect against viruses? Textiles provide an ideal surface for harboring viruses and bacteria. Over time, viruses and bacteria can be retransmitted from the textile( IE contact with other surfaces when you set them down, or your own hands). Textile treated with the antimicrobial HeiQ Viroblok actively inhibit viruses and kill bacteria. By keeping the textile free of viruses and bacteria, the HeiQ Viroblock treated textiles help to minimize the potential for retransmission of pathogens
Aren’t all masks the same?
Face masks are supposed to protect the wearer and/or the others but they are also a potential vector for viruses and bacteria!
During, before and after use, there is a risk of transferring pathogen to and picking up pathogen from the surface of the face masks:
a) When picking it up
b) When putting it on or taking off
c) When disposing it unsafely/leaving it lying around
d) When touching it while wearing or for adjustment
And there is always the risk of contracting the virus through touching the face after touching the contaminated surface of the mask or other surfaces contaminated by the mask.
The antimicrobial resists those germs and will help avoid becoming a vector for transmission
Is this ECO-Friendly? Yes, the washable mask helps reduce waste
Can I add a filter? Yes, the filters are available separately and fit nicely into the 2 layer design
