Our masks are formed by a three-layer structure, the most important layer of which is the Scino B nanomembrane. This nanomembrane consists of a tangle of fibers with a size of about 200 nanometers. The mask thus creates a dense network preventing the passage of particles and, thanks to its high porosity, allows breathing through the mask. The size of the pores is significantly lower than with traditional cotton masks and thus allows the capture of smaller particles. The nonwoven fabric and the polyamide (PA6.6) used for the production of nanofibers are certified and are suitable and safe for use in contact with the skin. No chemicals are used in the manufacture of our products that would be inhaled during use.
The Scino B nanofiber membrane provides high filtration efficiency for particles as small as 20 nm (SARS-CoV-2 usually 80 – 150 nm). According to WHO recommendations, the use of face masks is effective only in combination with frequent hand washing with soap and water or alcohol-based disinfectants.
Use an alcohol-based disinfectant or wash your hands with soap and water before putting on the mouthpiece. Cover your nose and mouth with a face mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask. Do not touch the face mask while wearing it. If you do, clean your hands with alcohol-based disinfectant or soap and water. Do not wear the mask for more than 1 work shift. Remove the mask from behind (do not touch the front of the mask) and then throw it in a closed basket.
Frequently asked questions and answers
How long does the mask last?
Our nanomembrane face masks are tested for 1 work shift. With a very high physical load, their service life may be shortened.
Can the mask be washed or disinfected?
No, nanofibers are sensitive to mechanical damage. After washing, the filtration efficiency of the mask would be significantly reduced. We also do not recommend any methods of disinfection, as they could trigger unwanted material changes.
