3 Layer Filtration Technology

Honeywell anti-pollution masks use 3 Layer Media filtration technology which blocks even the smallest of particles responsible for air pollution.  These masks are made of High quality filter media which blocks PM2.5 dust, haze, bacteria, influenza viruses etc. The 3 layer filter media increases effective filtration time by 50 percent, compared to similar products. These masks have a filtration capacity ranging from 80% to 95% depending upon the certification standard like FFP1/N95/KN95 etc.

In the 3 layer filter technology, the most critical is the middle layer which is electrostatically charged and the same is not present in normal surgical masks. This layer is responsible for filtering out up to 0.5 micron level of dust particle.

Always insist on masks which are approved to recognized standards such as BIS/EN/NIOSH/KN as a complete mask and do not get misguided by claims stating that the mask is made from materials confirming to these standards. A mask is always tested and approved as a complete set of 3 layers along with the other accessories like headband, nose clip etc.

HOW TO WEAR ANTI POLLUTION MASK

  • 1.

    Open the respirator by pushing slightly on both sides.

  • 2.

    Place the mask under the Chin, the nose-bridge upward and outside.

  • 3.

    Place the lower headband around the neck, below the ears. Holding the mask against the face with one hand, place the top headband above the ears, around the crown of the head.

  • 4.

    Mold the nose area to the shape of the nose by pinching the nose-bridge from the top to the bottom.

  • 5.

    Check the leak tightness for optimal proctection.

faqs

  • 1. Difference between a surgical mask and a Honeywell pollution mask?

    Honeywell masks/respirators provide 3 layers of filtration with an electrostatically charged filter media which block even the smallest of particles while the Ssurgical masks are single layer and provide barrier protection only against droplets and large respiratory particles. Most surgical masks do not effectively filter small particles from the air and do not prevent leakage around the edge of the mask when the user inhales.

  • 2. What is a valve on a mask and its benefits?

    For Faster dissipation of exhaled air
    An exhalation valve is a one way opening valve which allows the hot exhaled air to be released quickly making it comfortable for the user to wear the mask in hot and humid conditions. A valve mask is recommended for those who have an active lifestyle and are engaged into physical activities like running, cycling etc. An exhalation valve is not a filter and it does not offer any filtration properties.

  • 3. What is an N95 mask?

    With certified filtering efficiency of around 95%
    Different masks have different filtering efficiencies approved by different certifying bodies. Some well known and reputed certifying bodies are BIS (Bureau of India Safety), NIOSH (National institute of occupational safety and health) and GB Standards (Guobiao standards). All these bodies test and certify masks as per different filtering efficiencies such as 80%(FFP1), 95%(N95, KN95) etc. Always go for a mask which is approved and certified by these reputed bodies to ensure you get the best product. Also, do not get misguided by manufacturers claiming that the mask is "made of material confirming to N95/KN95 standards" as these bodies certify a complete mask and not just the materials used for construction. You can check the list of N95 certified masks from the below link,

  • 4. How Safe Is The Air You Breathe In?

    While air pollution is a global issue, India has been one of the worst affected countries in the world. The WHO Global Ambient Air Quality Database's ranking of particulate pollution (PM2.5) in cities revealed that 14 out of the 15 most polluted cities in the world are in India.

    PM2.5 stands for particulate matters measuring 2.5 micrometers in diameter. They are a mixture of solid and liquid particles suspended in the air that can easily enter the respiratory system and cause irreversible damage to vital organs.

    In India, major causes of air pollution are fuelwood and biomass burning, fuel adulteration, vehicle emission, and traffic congestion. During autumn and winter, crop residue burning in farmlands across the country further escalates smoke, smog, and particulate pollution. Research shows that exposure to particulate matter for a long time can lead to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, lung cancer, and heart attacks. Children and the elderly population are most susceptible to air pollution.

  • 5. Are masks washable?

    Think of masks as similar to car air filters, Would you ever wash a car air filter? Probably not. Reason being that an air filter/mask will lose its air filtering ability, in case of masks their electrostatic charge, which will impact their ability to filter small particles.
