Are masks made of ordinary fabrics effective?

Summary

kn95 / N95 masks and ffp1 / FFP2 / ffp3 masks are mainly made of melt blown fabric and non-woven fabric. Suntech provides mask materials with ultra-high cost performance. It has Intertek, TUV, SGS, gttc certificates, etc. some customers have made masks with the mask machine and mask materials of SJX and passed the local inspection. It can be customized and has a high return rate.

When the covid-19 is spreading, respirators have become mandatory public health necessities. Because of the shortage of masks, many ordinary public have to use headscarves, scarves or neck sleeves instead of respirators in public places without masks. At the same time, the market is full of mask products that claim to be effective but have not been tested at all. What about the efficacy of these mask substitutes in preventing germs?

 

Scientists at Duke University in the United States demonstrated a simple technique for testing the effectiveness of different mask fabrics and designs in reducing respiratory droplets transmission during normal speech.click to share to linkedin

 

The results showed that a suitable size N95 mask can reduce the spray most effectively, followed by surgical mask. Most of the cotton masks tested are awesome, and the barrier rate to droplets is not far from that of surgical masks. 

 

Unfortunately, not all types of mouth and nose covers are effective in reducing spray. Among them, the effect of knitted fabrics and scarves is particularly poor. Even more surprising to the researchers was the test result of the cashmere neck cover: the amount of droplets penetrating the cashmere neck cover was similar to that emitted during the benchmark test without wearing a mask.Click to share to Facebook

 

The study suggests that wearing a cashmere mask may pose a greater risk of transmission than not wearing a mask. According to the test results, the order of the effect of mask materials on preventing droplet is N95 > surgical mask > cotton > knitted fabric and square towel > cashmere neck cover. 

 

So, what kind of mask material is suitable for making masks? At present, the mainstream masks are still I / II / IIR masks, 1 / 2 / 3 level masks, kn95 / N95 masks and ffp1 / FFP2 / ffp3 masks. Melt blown fabrics and non-woven fabrics are used as the main materials. The layer of melt blown cloth in the middle of the mask is the real barrier to bacteria.
