PM2.5 refers to atmospheric particulate matter (PM) that have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers, which is about 3% the diameter of a human hair. Commonly written as PM2.5, particles in this category are so small that they can only be detected with an electron microscope. PM10 is particulates that have a diameter of 10 micrometers or less. Dust particles are the main source of PM10. Filtration for PM2.5 is comparatively much smaller given a diameter of 2.5 , which increases health risk significantly.
Bacteria and fungi are biological compositions of PM2.5 and most of the microorganisms in air adhere to particles of different sizes. The pathogens in PM2.5 are considered to be the cause of various allergic and respiratory diseases.
The FDA & CDC has stated Surgical Masks & N-95 Respirators should not be used by the general public (in contribution to the shortage crisis for medical staff workers)
Rather than use disposable medical masks inherently designed for our heathcare workers, our safe alternative offers a reusable, tight fitting - size adjustable filtration respirator with an N-95 layer built in.
Layer 1.) Laminated Medical Grade Polypropylene
Layer 2.) Activated Charcoal Dust Protectant
Layer 3.) N-95 Flitration
Layer 4.) Hyroscopic Sweat Layer
Layer 5.) Skin Friendly Interior Fabric
EACH MASK COMES WITH TWO REMOVABLE PM2.5 FILTERS
