COVID19: Seamless face mask to help minimize transmission of airborne viruses


With COVID-19 we are in the midst of a serious pandemic, with great impact on our normal life patterns. As a manufacturer of medical textile garments, we have the know-how and the processes required to develop products that help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. Parts of our production have therefore now been dedicated to the manufacture of a reusable face mask which is already launched and ready for distribution.

The intended use of the mask is as a preventive garment to reduce the risk of viral airborne and hand-to-face contamination.

There is no doubt that in future the world will see more pandemics like Corona with a huge impact on our social life and how we interact with others. In this context, we anticipate that the use of face masks will increase, as it is likely that wearing a mask will be standard practice, e.g. when travelling. In this context the Carefix face mask is a product with long-term prospect.

How does the mask work?

The textile face mask forms a barrier for hand-to-face contamination and minimizes the transmission of airborne organisms from coughing, speaking, sneezing or respiration from persons nearby. The face mask is in a seamless and so-called one-piece tube design, eliminating the use of irritating elastic bands around the ears. The design of the product ensures an easy and safe use as well as a good fit, so that the mask stays in place and is extremely comfortable to wear. 

Recommended for:

People who are looking for personal protection as a result of social distancing and other government regulations.

NOTE: This mask is not a suitable replacement for medical grade face mask.
