Our disposable 3 ply child face mask (also know as a respirator) has been designed as a single use disposable mask. The mask is designed to be comfortable, hypoallergenic and fluid resistant. A metal strip at the top of the mask helps with custom fitting the mask to your child’s face for a better fit, and elastic ear loops help secure the mask to their face.
The 3 ply child face mask is ideal to be used in public environments including walking, going to the shops and travelling on public transport. Designed as a single use mask, they are ideal for short to medium trips, being used for a maximum of 4 hours. If you require a mask to wear all day (for example going to school) we would recommend that you combine the 3 ply face mask with our child face shield.
Why Choose Our 3 Ply Child Face Mask?
Face masks are designed to capture a majority of particles measuring a median of 0.3 µm, and as nanoparticles mainly travel by Brownian motion, they are effectively captured within the face mask filter via electrostatic and mechanical forces. Unfortunately, when it comes to face masks, not all masks are equal, no matter what they look like. It is a very sad, but true fact, that many of the new manufacturers of face masks (set up in China once they returned to work from the Coronavirus pandemic) are not honest, and are shipping below par products using either faked certification, or have produced high quality samples to gain their certification, but are then producing cheaper face masks with a cheap melt blown layer – see below.
The face masks consist primarily of 3 main parts:
• The outer breathable fabric, which can be coloured (usually blue)
• The inner skin facing fabric, which helps to prevent skin irritation
• The melt blown layer, which is the most important and expensive part
The melt blown layer is a process that converts polymer resin into low diameter fibre non-woven web. As a minimum requirement for the mask to be effective, the melt blown layer needs have a 90% micro filter. As the melt blown layer you use increases in price with the higher the percentage, many of the new companies are producing face masks with either a very low percentage of melt blown layer, or none at all.
It is impossible to tell without testing the face mask what the melt blown percentage is. However we have a very strict quality control team in our factories, and you can be assured that our 3 ply adult face mask is the highest quality available.
