Filters Viruses including Corona

CareNow AIRMASK meets a wide range of tests to ensure effective filtration, anti-microbial activity, exhalation and durability. SARS-Cov2 virus which is responsible for COVID-19 has a size of 150nm. CareNow AIRMASK has been tested for 60nm Viruses(Bacteriophages) at 99.9% filtration

CareNow AIRMASK is a 4 layer mask consisting of multiple filtration layers. The filtration of mask is achieved using Diffusion, Interception & Impaction.

 

  • 99.9% Virus filtration Efficiency
  • 98% Particluate Filtration Efficiency at 300nm
  • 95% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency

 

A good filtration product is defined by the amount of filtration achieved at Particulate Matter of 300nm. The mask is engineered for excellent fit on face to avoid any gaps and leakages in inhaling and exhaling. Ergonomically designed contact points ensure well balanced resting without uncomfortable pinch points to the user

CareNow AIRMASK is made of BLUFENZ technology of CareNow. The science behind BLUFENZ is a unique antimicrobial technology that provides a barrier of protection which is highly effective and everlasting through the life of the fabric. An antimicrobial shield is formed by a long molecular chain of carbon atoms with a +vely charged to a Silica Atom & bonded to the fabric. Pathogen, which are -vely charged comes in contact with the +vely charged molecular chain & undergoes lysis. This mechanism provides continuous defense achieving anti-microbial activity and does not deplete over washes.

CareNow MASK is not NIOSH certified since its intended use is for General use.

  • Can we use AIRMASK in a Surgical Setup?

    According to FDA rules, for a surgical setup, a one time use product is only preferred. Further, an exhalation valve for a surgical setup is not recommended. CareNow is developing CareNow HealthMASK which is similar to AIRMASK without Valve. Further the HealthMask will be splash proof, Autoclaveable and Fire retardant with added safety. CareNow HealthMASK will be NIOSH Certified

  • How long does the Anti-microbial efficacy last?

    The anti-microbial efficacy is permanently bonded and does not deplete in its efficieny. AIRMASK has been tested effective for more than 100 washes under the labeled washing instructions.

  • How to wash?

    A simple wash at your sink with normal soap will keep the AIRMASK Clean. Since the mask is made of Microbicidal technology, there is no need for any disinfectants to be used. Indoor Drying will help in longer durability of the product.
