Cleaning your Next-Gen Face Mask
How often you clean your mask will depend on how often you wear it and how long you wear it for, as well as variables like sweat-rate, air pollution, and exposure.
As a general rule, your masks should be washed a minimum of once every two days, assuming regular or daily usage.
✓Handwash with mild soap.
✓Do not bleach.
✓Do not dry clean.
✓Do not iron.
✓Do not tumble dry.
✓Dry flat, dries in minutes.
What is the Antimicrobial Agent?
The antimicrobial agent is a composition of silver and copper embedded in the polyester fabric. For centuries, the antimicrobial properties of silver and copper have been known. Silver has been used in purification and medicinal purposes. Today, the same antimicrobial agents have been used safely in medical and industrial applications.
The basis to the technology is silver in its ionic form. The delivery system is a zeolite carrier that allows a controlled and effective release of the silver ions, on demand, thus killing and inhibiting the growth of bacteria, viruses, mold and fungus over long periods of time. This stable ion exchange process is non-reactive and allows the compound to be used in virtually every imaginable manufacturing process.
How does the Antimicrobial Agent work?
The silver-copper zeolite antimicrobial agent is embedded throughout the fabric of the mask. As humidity in the environment naturally interacts with the silver-copper zeolites, an ion is omitted which interacts with the cells of microorganism and interrupts its ability to function or reproduce. This safe and nontoxic release of the ions are continuous and remain active over long periods of time.
Silver and copper active elements are released at a steady rate as they interact with humidity in the environment, producing an antibacterial/antifungal/antiviral surface. The moisture in the environment causes a controlled release of the copper and silver through a proprietary ionic exchange.
In many applications, the antimicrobial compound has been shown to provide antimicrobial efficacy in just a few minutes while maintaining optimal killing and inhibitory performance for months.
