Today, one of the defensive weapons that we poses in-order to fight against viruses like the COVID-19, is a face mask. However, not just any face mask, but an N95 grade face mask. Many people do not understand what an ‘N95 Mask’ really means. In this article, we will educate our readers and our customers about what an N95 Mask is and how does HYPR Mask compare against it.
According to the FDA “an N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. The 'N95' designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles.” (Source: FDA).
How does the HYPR Mask’s Face Mask Material compare to those of the N95 masks? Well, the HYPR technology is a very advanced 'nano fiber spinning technology' that is engineered using a patent-pending Nanofiber technology and is highly-efficient (up to 95%) on sub-micron particles, including bacteria and viruses at 0.3 micron test particles.
We can not officially call ourselves an N95 mask due to the fact that we have not yet applied to get our masks N95 certified by the NIOSH. We are a small family business and this certification costs quite a bit of money for any small business. Check it out yourself here. We simply do not have the $50,000 to spend on a certification at this time.
Our goal is to one day get certified, however in the meantime, we want to bring manufacturing work back to the United States of America and also provide face masks to those who need it and need it NOW!
The reality of the matter is that there is a major shortage of masks in our country, that can truly provide the safety that we need from the COVID-19 virus and those alike. Many people have turned to fake Chinese imports, where they wait weeks for them to arrive or use cloth materials that in reality do not protect you against sub-micron particles like the COVID-19, no cloth material can achieve this.
This is where we come in. HYPR mask materials are N95 equivalent. We have gathered our local resources to find American manufacturers who can provide us the materials we need for us to create the face masks or filters that we all need to protect ourselves...
It is time for you to decide for yourself and protect your family from these potentially deadly viruses and no longer depend on fake Chinese materials to do so. We stand by our products and we assure you that you will be receiving true American quality masks and filters, made and assembled right here in the United States.
