Ok... maybe face masks can assist in preventing the spread of germs. But why is TECMASK so special?
Glad you asked!! With respect to our TECMASK products specifically, we incorporate a high-quality PM2.5 filter which has been tested and certified by the Nelsons Laboratory in Salt Lake City, USA to be effective in warding off 99% of BFE and PFE particles. PM2.5 particles are so small in size that they can only be detected with an electron microscope. Take a look at the picture below to see exactly how small that is.
They are even smaller than what’s classified as ‘finer particles’, and come from various sources including power plants, motor vehicles, airplanes, dust storms, fires, among others. These particles can be quite harmful to your respiratory system if inhaled, triggering or worsening chronic disease such as asthma, bronchitis, heart attack or other respiratory problems.
The important thing to note is that, when wearing a TECMASK it is important to make sure it fits your face properly, to assist in providing maximum protection possible. But we've got that covered too! As our designs are available across 2 different sizes, to help you find the best fit for you.
