Our masks are made with a combination of materials including Polypropylene, Spun-bond and Melt-blown fibers, the standard for medical-grade facemasks. Spun-bond Melt-blown Spun-bond (SMS) is a tri-laminate non-woven fabric. It is made up of a top layer of spun-bond polypropylene, a middle layer of melt-blown polypropylene and a bottom layer of spun-bond polypropylene. Spun-bond polypropylene has many excellent properties, including strength, durability and breathability. On the other hand, melt-blown however has relatively weak tensile properties but due to the smaller fibers and larger surface area taken up by the fibers, it has excellent wicking, barrier and filtration properties. *Together, these fabrics create the ultimate barrier against fluids and particles.
