What are the Types of Masks

| | From: ADSS

1.Disposable Masks

Medical masks are mostly made of one or more layers of non-woven composite fabric, the main production process includes melt spray, spunbond, hot air or needle puncture, etc. It has the effect of resisting liquids, filtering particles and bacteria, and is a medical protective textile. Medical masks can be divided into general medical masks, medical-surgical masks, medical protective masks.

Disposable Masks Advantage

  • 1.Good quality and reliable

  • 2.Strict standard and high quality with ISO,FDA&CE

  • 3.Rich experience for many years

  • 4.Good working environment and stable production capacity

  • 5.OEM order is available

  • 6.Competitive price, Fast delivery and Excellent service.

2.Disposable Protective Mask

In daily life, various suspended particulate matter in the atmosphere can affect people’s health, especially in places with high air pollution, we need to wear face masks that can filter particulate matter. Since Europe and the United States do not have the habit of wearing a mask in ordinary life, there is no relevant standard, therefore, only the Chinese standard GB 32610 here.

Disposable Protective Mask Advantage

  • 1.disposable and anti-bacterial

  • 2.Folds up for easy carrying, comfortable

  • 3.Extra-soft ear loops eliminate pressure to the ears

  • 4.Suitable for outdoor, indoor and industrial usage.

  • 5.Silk-like, ultra-soft cellulosic white inner layer

  • 6.Designed specifically for people with sensitive skin,the better the protection from exposure to blood and splash/spray/spatter.

3.KN95 mask

Cover the nose and mouth and hang the ear straps on both sides of the mask on the ear; Fix the bridge of the nose in a nose to prevent dirty air from entering; Pull the mask to the lower jaw to create a three-dimensional breathing space. Best Wear time is 8 hours.

KN95 Mask Advantage

  • 1.N95 masks are effective according to the CDC in helping to prevent the spread of Flu, swine flu and avian flu transmission from person to person.

  • 2.N95 is the United States standard, it is also called KN95 masks in China, able to filter out 95% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air.

  • 3.These KN95 masks are designed to fit over the nose and mouth of the wearer, and properly fitted can provide excellent protection.

  • 4.A comfortable elastic headband, adjustable nose bridge and single strap construction provide a secure, customized fit; one size fits most faces.

  • 5.Apply: Filters non-toxic dust, pollen, flu, dander, sawdust, garage dust, garden and general household dust and irritants.

  • 6.Folding thin section, lightweight and easy to use

4.labor protective mask

Labor protective masks, also known as self-absorbing filtered particulate matter respirators. It is an important protection against pneumoconiosis and occupational diseases, as well as respiratory inhalation protection against harmful substances such as oxygen-deficient air and dust poisoning. There are three types of disposable masks, replaceable half masks, and full masks, as follows.

labor protective mask Advantage

Disposable masks are lighter in weight and are generally single-use products; replaceable masks are heavier in weight and have replaceable filter elements in the inner layer. Labor protective masks are mainly used in construction, mining, foundry, woodworking, electronics, pharmaceuticals, material handling, and grinding operations to protect the dust generated.

1.What is the difference between medical masks and non-medical protective masks?

Due to the peculiarities of the medical environment, when medical personnel operates on patients, it is necessary to prevent bacteria from infecting the patient and also to prevent the spilling of bodily fluids from the patient. Medical masks need to meet the following three conditions, filter bacteria, prevent blood spatter, and cannot have a breathing valve. These three conditions are not directly related to antiviral.

2.Why can anti-particle masks be used to antiviral? Is it mandatory to use a medical mask for protection 2019-nCoV?

It must be understood that viruses cannot exist in air species alone and that pathogenic microorganisms in the air (such as pathogens or viruses) are also particulate matter, which can be filtered by particulate matter filter material. Studies have shown that particles of 0.3um diameter are the most difficult to capture, so particulate matter filtration tests are all about selecting particles of 0.3um diameter.

If protection from bodily fluids or blood splashes is not required, just protection from the presence of influenza virus, infectious droplets, or other harmful particulate matter in the air, the use of non-medical protective masks is sufficient.

3.Medical masks have no particulate matter filtration efficiency, how do they antiviral?

In contrast to non-medical protective masks, medical masks do not specify particulate filtration, e.g. medical standard YY/T 0969, EN 14683, ASTM F2100, but these standards have been shown to be effective against viruses because bacteria are also particulates. If it can filter out bacteria and therefore particulates, but the exact relationship between them has yet to be demonstrated.

4.Can a breath valve antiviral?

For the 2019-nCoV, a face mask with a respiratory valve is not to be worn. The reason for this is that while wearing a filtered mask with a breath valve can prevent others from infecting us, but we can’t be sure we’re not infected, and antiviral face masks that don’t use a breath valve are meant to prevent us from infecting others.

5.Filtration does not kill the virus

The purpose of the antiviral face mask is to filter out the tiny particles of air that may be attached to the virus; filtering is not the same as killing. The antiviral face mask simply keeps the virus out, preventing it from getting inside, and the surface of the antiviral face mask can still hold the virus. Therefore, try not to touch the outer layer of the mouthpiece with your hands, and if you do, you need to wash your hands.

6.How to choose an antiviral face mask?

If it’s just to antiviral, choose a face mask that can filter the particles. The 9 standard masks given in this paper can effectively antiviral virus. But remember that you shouldn’t choose ordinary cotton masks or privacy protection masks worn by movie stars or sport starts. These masks are mainly for beauty and can’t effectively antiviral.
