A German-made mask developed by Freudenberg Filtration Technologies has been certified as a TYPE II medical face mask (EN 14683).

Freudenberg Filtration Technologies completed all the necessary certifications within a few weeks.

Companies will be able to purchase the masks for their employees from the middle of October.

“At the heart of our medical face masks is a soft three-layer polypropylene filter medium that is characterized by its superior breathability,” said Dr Thomas Caesar, Director Global Filter Engineering Industrial Filtration at Freudenberg Filtration Technologies.

The special structure of the three layers reduces the release of aerosols contaminated with viruses and bacteria. Freudenberg Filtration Technologies says that external laboratory tests confirm a filtration efficiency of more than 98% in aerosol separation.

The soft nonwoven fabric also offers optimum wearing comfort and facilitates easy breathing.

The independent dermatological institute Dermatest has rated the product’s skin compatibility as “excellent”. Elastic ear loops and a nose clip allow Freudenberg Filtration Technologies’ mouth-nose protection to be individually adjusted and ensure a comfortable fit.

Freudenberg Filtration Technologies is only supplying these certified face masks to companies that order 7500 units or more. For small household quantities, Freudenberg Home and Cleaning Solutions sells medical face masks under the Collectex brand to consumers and companies.
