Surgical Masks offers the least protection against bad air as compared to its stronger counterparts like the N95 and HCDF* particulate respirator. These masks are used mainly for protection against moisture and visible splashes such as sneezes and coughs. Hence, they do not offer strong defenses against allergens. This is partly also due to loose ends where bad air can easily sip through without going through the filter.
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) Respirator Trusted-Source Information, the N95 mask is a NIOSH-approved particulate respirator for protection against allergens in the air. That being said, how much of it does it cover? How much of it does it NOT cover? As safe as it might sound, it’s sometimes easy to wonder how effective this particulate respirator really is. This is because you can still breathe pretty easily through the mask when you put one on. Even if it’s tested to be 99.9% safe, how can we be sure that it can safely protect us from the inhalation of bad air?
Particulate respirators such as the N95 Masks by 3M helps to reduce allergens in the air and helps the user isolate his own breathing to only healthy filtered air. Air is being filtered and stopped by the thick layers of soft fibers lining the mask. After which, they are pushed back out into the air upon exhalation by the user. Compared to the Surgical mask, the N95 Respirators is a definite win both hands down. But, what if there is an even better way to protect and shield yourself against harmful bad air, pollutants, and allergens. If you think that the N95 Mask is the best that you can find out there, then, you may be wrong.
Why HCDF* Respirators?
An HDCF Particulate Respirator is an upgraded enhanced version of the normal particulate respirators. Apart from the normal capturing and filtering of harmful particles in the air, an HCDF* respirator is layered with an additional carbon layer. This same layer of carbon is also used in HEPA air filters to transform harmful allergens into harmless particles. It acts as a secondary layer of protection to guard against the harmful air we breathe in. Think about the speed at which respirators can filter, an HCDF* filter seem to provide stronger protection and offer filtered, clean air into your lungs
However, HCDF* masks can be slightly higher and costly due to their additional carbon layer. It’s a good investment though for the safety and health of yourself and your workers. HCDF* masks are great for highly polluted areas where clean air is very unlikely to be found. Such areas include hospitals, construction work sites, checkpoints, and on the traffic congested roads.
Thinking of having cleaner air and healthier lungs? Then its time to invest in your health with our HCDF* Mask. This mask is so secure and leakage-proof that you won’t even smell the usual gas of the car exhaust. All you will get inside the mask is fresh and clean air.
