FLUID RESISTANT FEATURES
Surgimask Surgical mask has a fluid resistance of 120mmHg/16.0kPa consistent with level 2 barrier protection.
Fluid and Splash Resistance is measured by Nelson Laboratories. This is in accordance with ASTM F1862-98 & ASTM F1862-00a standard testing methods for resistance of surgical face masks to penetration of synthetic blood at 16.0kPa pressures.
Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE)
Surgimask provides the user with a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency of greater than 99% for media that is greater than 3 microns. This surgical mask provides the user with superior protection from a potential infection.
Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE)
The PFE measures filtration of particles 0.1micron in size which relates to fine dust and viral filtration. The mask meets a PFE of ≥ 98% as per the ASTMF2100 standard
With this surgical mask being used now by the general public as well as clinicians, the surgimask provides excellent breathability with a low delta P (<1.8) ensuring maximum comfort and coolness when in use. Allows extended use of the mask.
Delta P is also conducted by Nelson Laboratories and is a comfort measure of the mask testing breathability of the mask for the user. The lower the P level the more comfort the mask in while in use. <1.8 is a low level ensuring maximum comfort.
