The idea of Masks by Mrs F branched out of love for her family and friends during the COVID 19 pandemic. She wanted to make masks for those who deeply needed them such as health care workers or mothers who have to take their newborn babies to the doctors. Now that they all have masks, she is able to make masks for all individuals who want masks. All proceeds are donated to COVID 19 research. Donate HERE!
Each mask has haylard 600 filters. This means that it blocks 99.9% of particulates, making the masks about 4% more effective at blocking particulate material than the N95 masks.
Bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) is a measure of the effectiveness of a material to filter bacteria 3.0 µm in size, whereas filtration efficiency (FE) is a measure of the effectiveness of a material to filter submicron (median diameter of 0.075 µm) particles of NaCl. Medical masks have a BFE of >95–99% and a >78–87% FE. The N95 respirator has an FE of >95% and a BFE of >>99% [ref].
