What are different types of Face Masks & Specifications for coronavirus Covid19 Pandemic?

Respiratory viruses that includes Coronaviruses target mainly the upper and lower respiratory tracts. Hence protecting the airway from the particulate matter generated by droplets / aerosols prevents human infection. Contamination of mucous membranes of the mouth and nose by infective droplets or through a contaminated hand also allows the virus to enter the host. Hence the droplet precautions/airborne precautions using masks are crucial while dealing with a suspect or confirmed case of COVID-19/performing aerosol-generating procedures.

Masks are of different types. The type of mask to be used is related to the particular risk profile of the category of personnel and his/her work.





Types of Face Masks

There are two types of masks which are recommended for various categories of personnel working in hospital or community settings, depending upon the work environment:


  1. Triple-layer medical mask (3Ply Masks)

  2. N-95 Respirator mask


Triple layer medical mask (Also known as 3PLY Mask)

Triple-layer medical mask (Also known as 3PLY Mask) fluid-resistant, provide protection to the wearer from droplets of infectious material emitted during coughing/sneezing/talking.


More details on 3Ply Masks:

3Ply masks are of two types when it comes to certification:-

  1. 3Ply Normal Mask for Civilian Use

  2. 3Ply Surgical Mask

Recently the Chinese government has imposed restrictions on export of 3Ply Normal Mask and has allowed only 3Ply Surgical Mask. This decision has increased overall price of 3Ply Mask exports throughout the world during the Covid19 Pandemic. If you wish to buy 3Ply masks from www.facemaskexporters.com then contact us today!


N-95 Respirator Mask

An N-95 respirator mask is a respiratory protective device with high filtration efficiency to airborne particles. To provide the requisite air seal to the wearer, such masks are designed to achieve a very close facial fit.


Such mask should have high fluid resistance, good breathability (preferably with an expiratory valve), clearly identifiable internal and external faces, duckbill/cup-shaped structured design that does not collapse against the mouth.

If correctly worn, the filtration capacity of these masks exceeds those of 3Ply medical masks. Since these provide a much tighter air seal than 3Ply medical masks, they are designed to protect the wearer from inhaling airborne particles.
