ASTM F2100-19 Level 3 Surgical Mask with active protection functionsTM Technology
Anti-Viral Mask Line Construction
The mask features a four-layer construction. The outer two layers use our patented ViraxTM biotechnology to quickly destroy viruses & pathogens.
Outer ViraxTM Layer
- The outer ViraxTM layer coating is hydrophilic, allowing infectious laden droplets to be rapidly absorbed and trapped.
- The outer ViraxTM layer coating is a low pH environment which starts to denature and damage the surface membrane of viruses within 5 seconds.
- Infected droplets are quickly wicked away from the outer surface into the second ViraxTM virucidal layer where the viruses are trapped and destroyed.
Second ViraxTM Layer
The second ViraxTM virucidal layer is a non-woven rayon material treated with active functional groups that mimic the binding of viruses to sialic acid on the surface of living host cells.
Viruses trapped in this layer are exposed to high localized concentrations of copper and zinc ions which destroy the viruses through ionic interactions with proteins and RNA or DNA.
