COVID-19 and Face Masks

What You Need to Know about Facemasks and Coronavirus 

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19, face masks have become an indispensable part of our lives. The novel coronavirus pandemic created widespread panic amongst the general public, resulting in a worldwide shortage of various items, including facemasks. As a result, many individuals and small businesses started making facemasks from easily accessible fabrics, which although provided a physical barrier, were essentially ineffective.

A combination of practicing social distancing and wearing protective masks has become the primary nonpharmaceutical standard to protect people from the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is transmitted in the form of respiratory droplets. A wide range of masks are available, from reusable cloth masks, to surgical N95 respirators. Facemask provide varying levels of protection from the virus. No two masks are created equal. It's important to understand what a good protective mask is made of and why it is so important.  A study showed that the size of SARS-CoV-2 particles were in the range of 60-140 nm. Thus, only masks made from fabrics with a pore size smaller than 60 nm would be able to effectively filter the virus particles.

Current Recommendations

With the recent identification of new variants of SARS-CoV-2 in various parts of the world, there has been an increase in efforts to develop new strategies to combat the spread. Recently, the CDC issued a recommendation to wear double masks to reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission and exposure. They advised wearing a cloth mask over a surgical mask or knotting the ear loops and tucking-in the sides of the mask, with the basic idea being that a tight fit will result in an improved performance (> 95% reduction in exposure to particles). However, wearing two cloth masks might not be as effective since one of them (the inner one) must act as an efficient filter (high particle filtration efficiency or PFE) and not just a barrier.

What are the benefits of wearing DNA facemasks?

DNA face masks and surgical masks are reusable and durable, high-quality masks with five-layer protection, including a tri-laminate filter made of three layers of Spunbond and Meltblown polypropylene along with two additional layers of proprietary filtration and protection. With a clinically-proven 98.5% Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE) and Bacteria Filtration Efficiency (BFE), DNA facemasks are the best protective masks on the market, rivaling the N99 respirator for filtration efficiency, while providing a level of comfort unmatched by any competitor. You will be safer and be able to wear this mask for many hours without discomfort.

Style. Comfort. Protection.

The three greatest benefits of wearing a DNA mask are style, comfort, and protection. These facemasks greatly surpass all industry standards, making DNA industry leaders and trend-setters in PPE manufacturing.

Facemasks with Flair

DNA tri-fold masks have style like no other. Using a state-of-the-art, large format dye sublimation industrial printer and a large format industrial calender press with oil-filled, DNA is able to offer a wide variety of colorful and modern options to choose from including: holiday designs, digital camoflauge designs, 3D designs, and much more.

What a Relief

Utilizing a moisture absorbing polycotton lining, DNA masks provide a higher level of comfort than other masks. These masks even come with a patent-pending adjustable elastic headstrap that alleviates the pressure from the back of the ears caused by the earloops. 

The Coronavirus Shield

The highest-level of protection DNA masks were able to achieve, was through a filtration system that improved the quality of N95 masks.  Additional layers of filtration were added,  including a moisture resistant, polyester outer layer. Using elastic under the chin and a heavy-duty, durable aluminum nose insert, DNA masks create a great seal around the face forcing the wearer to breathe through the fabric and not around it.

 

The Best Overall Facemask on the Planet 

Many people have attempted to make facemasks since the Coronavirus outbreak, most didn't protect people. It wasn't well understood what makes a good mask. People thought a mask was a mask. But there are many aspects to manufacturing the highest-quality facemask. 

There are a bunch of facemasks options. Most will not protect you. Of those that will protect you, few will offer any form of style. Best of all, like a unicorn of facemasks, DNA masks provide hours of comfort thanks to the patent pending headstrap. They are truly the best facemask on the planet, trusted by nurses, doctors, and surgeons worldwide.
