TGA Listed product - This product is listed as a Medical Device Included Class 1
A surgical face mask is a disposable face mask worn over the nose and mouth to help protect against the inhalation of airborne particles and to help prevent the spread of unhealthy airborne particles. Surgical Masks are tested against their Bacteria Filtration Efficiency (BFE), Particular-Filtration Efficiency (PFE), Fluid Resistance Penetration (mmHg) and, Breathability (Delta P).
Unlike other cloth face coverings, a medical face mask is very carefully designed and manufactured to ensure that it remains effective at the prevention of spreading disease but not of minimising any respiratory distress a person may feel due to heavy pollution in the air.
Unlike general 3 Ply Face Masks, Surgical Masks are protective for General Public, Vulnerable Individuals, Medical and Health Care Workers, as well as Front Line Workers.
When wearing these mask’s, the user may limit their exposure to smoke, pollution, concrete/ sawdust, water/ virus particles and some vapours, and Bacteria.Features:
BACTERIAL FILTRATION EFFICIENCY (BFE)
With a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of greater than 99% for media greater than 3 microns, this mask provides superior protection from potential infection.
BFE is an independent test conducted by approved Independent testing facilities that measure the effectiveness of face mask materials to filter out bacteria.
PARTICULATE FILTRATION EFFICIENCY (PFE)
The super high Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE) material filters >99% of particles greater than 0.1 microns. When securely fitted, the mask helps to provide an effective barrier to particulate matter from laser plumes and electrocautery procedures.
PFE measures the effectiveness of the mask material to filter particulate matter.
BREATHABILITY (DELTA P)
The mask design provides excellent breathability and low delta P (≤2.8) ensuring coolness and comfort even when worn for an extended period.
Delta P, also conducted by approved Independent testing facilities, is a test that measures the breathability of mask materials, ranking masks on comfort and coolness for the surgical mask wearer. The lower the figure, the cooler and more comfortable the mask.
