A non-woven surgical mask is a mask that protects the wearers respiratory tract. Non-woven masks filters inhaled air, minimizing the risk of spreading viruses and bacteria. The disposable surgical face mask covers a large portion of the face and protects the wearer from dust and microorganisms. These facemasks are essential for doctors and hospital staff as it protects them from viruses which may spread from patients.
Food industry workers also use non-woven face masks to prevent human contamination and the transmission of viruses through food. Non-woven surgical masks are better than woven face masks because they have better air permeability, lightweight, waterproof, flexible, durable and provides better filtration.
Usage of non-woven facemasks minimizes the risk of contamination as compared to reusable products, disposable products are disposed of after usage.
Overall, the usage of facemasks, gloves, social distancing, hand washing and other protective measures when you do not need to be in public are all effective ways to flatten the curve and prevent exposure to bacteria and viruses.
A surgical face mask is a disposable face mask worn over the nose and mouth which protects against the inhalation of airborne particles. Surgical face masks also help prevent the spread of unhealthy airborne particles.
A 3-ply face mask is carefully designed and manufactured to ensure that it’s effective at preventing the spread of disease and limiting any respiratory distress a person may feel due to heavy pollution in the air.
1 ply or single ply masks involve only a single layer of microfibers without any folding. The 2 or double ply mask consists of two layers of spun bonded thermal polypropylene microfibers which provides better filtration and absorption.
The 3 ply mask or triple ply mask has three layers of folding arranged vertically which covers the mouth, nose and chin. In practical applications, for hospital use and dental use, facemasks require mandatory utilization of non-woven face masks as the mask ensures the prevention of virus transmission.
