ADVANCED FACE MASKS WITH NANO-WEB (BIO-PROTECTIVE)
- A five layered N-99 masks using a nano web filter layer is designed, developed and tested in bio threat mitigation project.
- Filter media for the face masks are made up of silver impregnated nano fibre of nylon multilayers which offer a much higher surface area and very fine pores to trap viruses and bacteria.
- Filter media was indigenously developed in collaboration with ATIRA, Ahmadabad and it offers ˃99.00 % efficiency against 0.3 µm particulates matter.
- This material is able to prevent spread of viruses and other respiratory infections. These masks are developed in flat & fold shape with exhalation valve to facilitate longer wear/donning. These masks are very cost effective, light weight and comfortable to wear.
ADVANCED FACE MASKS WITH MELT BROWN FILTER (BIO-PROTECTIVE)
- Filter media for the face masks are made of polypropylene melt blown multi layers which offer ˃97 % efficiency against 0.3 µm particulates matter. This is N-97 equivalent.
- Other design parameters are similar to the N-99 Masks.
BIODEGRADABLE HERBAL MASK- PAVITRAPATI
- DIAT, Pune has developed a 3 layered Ayurvedic based Biodegradable Face Mask ‘Pavitrapati’.
- The product is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, porous, super hydrophobic (outer layer), hydrophilic (inner layer) and biodegradable.
