Though not considered as a medical device, regular face masks are able to keep large particles from scattering to the environment. Commonly used by people who are sick or suffering from allergies, these masks are easy to use and disposed of immediately after. Face masks fit most users, requiring minimal adjustment regardless of age or gender of the user. Elastic ear loops secure the mask on the user’s face, while a plastic nose piece locks it to place.
Most face masks consist of three layers: two layers of spunbond fabric with a layer of melt-blown fabric at the middle that serves as the protective barrier. The middle layer is not exposed to electret treating, hence only able to control droplets of 3 microns at 95%.
Face masks have seen prevalent use among many East Asian nations as a method of protection against the increasing air pollution in their area.This is also seen in crowded locations, where people prone to several allergens use face masks as a precaution in case of an allergy attack.
Companies hurdle through several obstacles to becoming a certified manufacturer of face masks. Sourcing the proper equipment, materials, and obtaining the needed certifications from multiple agencies are paramount to being part of the industry. On a minimum, our face masks must meet the standards set by the following international agencies:
– USA: NIOSH
– EU: EN149, CE
– AU: TGA

(Additionally, a South Korean Company must be the license holder, and the consignee must go to Korea)
