Respiratory Protection

Respirator is a protective device that provides protection for the nose and mouth to guard the wearer against hazardous atmosphere. The respirators might be in tight-fitting like N95 respirator masks and loose-fitting like non-woven face masks. Wearing a face mask will help people to prevent the spread of infection and provide the basic protection for people to prevent them from contracting any airborne infectious germs. Face masks can filter the bacteria and particles that are released by people when they cough, talks and sneezes. These might be the harmful germs, viruses and bacteria that may infect people. Therefore, wearing a face mask is a kind of infection control strategy to eliminate the cross-contamination and prevent the spread of disease.

Why SAFETYWARE?

We have more than 30 years of experience in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) manufacturing, manufactures under stringent quality control systems certified to ISO 9001:2015 Standard. Our quality products are certified to CE, ANSI, AS/NZS, SIRIM, Singapore Standard, etc. and supported by a Strong R&D Team for continuous improvement on Product Quality.

Safetyware face masks meet ASTM F1862 & ISO 22609 and ASTM F2100 & EN 14683 standards. We utilize ultraviolet sterilisation to ensure the highest hygiene standard for the entire category of products. Besides, our face mask employs ultrasonic welding technology to firm the bonding between mask and ties. Safetyware face masks also achieved customers’ high satisfaction with the good breathability feature and hypoallergenic materials. Undeniable, these are the key advantages of our products.

Ultraviolet Sterilisation

Mask Cover-05

Face masks are considered as one of the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) that provide the protection of nose and mouth against dust, pollen, bacterias and so on. Therefore, we highly ensure that our face masks are always achieved the highest hygiene standard in order to reach you free of bacterial contamination. To achieve the standard, we utilize ultraviolet sterilisation technology to sanitize the entire range of PPE products.

Ultraviolet sterilisation technology uses UV light to kill a wide array of harmful organisms such as the germs and bacteria on a certain product sufficiently. It is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, unlike some harsh chemicals. This method can be far more effective and it is an excellent supplement compared with other traditional disinfection methods.

Ultrasonic Welding Technology

Ultrasonic welding technology uses ultrasonic energy at high frequencies (20–40 kHz) to produce low amplitude (1–25 μm) mechanical vibrations. The vibrations will then generate heat at the joint interface of the parts being welded, resulting in melting of the thermoplastic materials and weld formation after cooling.

It is a fast, clean, efficient, and repeatable process that produces strong and integral bonds between the mask body with thread. There are no solvents, adhesives, mechanical fasteners or external heat required. Therefore, the finished assemblies are strong in bonding while also maintaining the face mask hygiene standard.

Comfort

Mask Cover-03

The hypoallergenic materials of face masks bring comfort and are suitable for each skin type. It cuts down on skin irritation and helps prevent Maskne where it is acne caused by wearing a face mask for extended periods of time. The hydrophilic inner layer helps to absorb moisture to be more comfortable to wear while maintaining good breathability, especially for long hour usage.

Design and packaging

Mask Cover-04

Our face masks are designed with a contoured shape for excellent fit to various face shapes. The soft elasticated earloops and flexible head ties provide the perfect fitting for every wearer. The stylish design with various colour choices makes the face masks more attractive and fashionable to wear. Safetyware face masks are packed in a bundle and seal nicely in a plastic bag for better storage against dust contamination. It provided a smart pull dispenser box to easily pull out a mask when needed.


How to verify the mask’s quality?

A comprehensive set of tests is being offered for the surgical face mask and general-use medical face masks. These tests are essential to ensure the performance properties are validated to support marketing label claims and to classify the different mask types. From that, people can select the face mask that offers the most effective protection which matches with the international health standards.

BFE & PFE

The Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) test measures the percentage of bacteria larger than 3 microns filtered out by the mask. While the Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE) test measures the percentage of particles larger than 1 micron filtered out by the mask. Our medical procedure face mask offers high BFE and PFE for more than 93.6% to 99%.

Synthetic Blood Penetration Resistance

The Synthetic Blood Penetration Resistance test determines a product’s ability to act as a barrier to blood-borne pathogens. This test is required by ASTM F2100 and is tested in compliance with ASTM F1862, ASTM F2100, EN 14683, and ISO 26609. Safetyware face masks tested under these methods to ensure the product quality and masks’ safety for the wearer.

Differential Pressure

The Delta P test is performed to determine the breathability of masks by measuring the differential air pressure on either side of the test article using a manometer, at a constant flow rate. The Delta P is measured in units of mm H2O/cm2. ASTM standard requires that masks have a Delta P of less than 5.0 for good breathability.

Fluid Resistance

This test was performed to evaluate the performance of face masks to provide the protection against fluid penetration. Our face masks meet the official requirements and standards which have 80mm Hg, 120mm Hg and 160mm Hg of fluid resistance rating.

N95 Respirator

An N95 respirator designed to achieve the perfect protection with a very close facial fit and high efficiency of airborne particles filtration. The edges of the N95 respirator are designed to form a fit seal around the wearer’s nose and mouth. The N95 respirators are having the similarities with medical procedure face masks where they are also tested for bacterial and particle filtration efficiency (BFE & PFE), fluid resistance and flammability.

With the label of “N95”, “N” refers to the Respirator Rating Letter Class which stands for “Non-Oil”. It means that people can use this mask in a work environment that does not contain oil-based particulates. This mask ending with “95” means that it has 95% of filtration efficiency. It can filter out the contaminants like dusts, mists and fumes. The particulates with minimum size of .3 microns and large droplets won’t be able to pass through the mask. The material of N95 respirator will also be the non-woven polypropylene fibre that ensures superior performance and comfort to the wearer.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What is the difference between a medical procedure mask and an N95 respirator?

A medical procedure mask creates a physical barrier to provide the basic protection for nose and mouth from sprays, splashes and large-particle droplets. It can help to prevent the transmission of potentially infectious respiratory secretions from the wearer to others.

While N95 respirator is designed to achieve a very close facial fit and provides high efficiency of viruses, bacterial and airborne particles filtration. The edges of the N95 mask are designed to form a seal around the wearers’ nose and mouth.

2. Can the mask be washed and reuse it?

It is not recommended to wash and reuse the mask. The filtration layer of the mask might be destroyed after washing. Therefore, the mask will no longer function as a barrier device to provide the protection against dust, pollen, virus and bacteria to the wearer.

3. Where are the face masks being made?

The face masks are made in Malaysia by Safetyware Sdn. Bhd. Our company gained the approval of the Quality Management Systems, ISO 9001:2015 certified that is internationally recognized and accepted to ensure excellent product quality control.
