How Do Type I 3-Layer Masks Work?

Our UK made Type I 3-Layer face masks filter the expelled air/mucous/spit of the wearer to protect those around them from infection. These UK made 3-ply Type I masks, have three protective layers designed for both safety and comfort.

Here’s a little bit more about the materials used to create our UK made medical face masks.

1 The outer layer is made from nonwoven fabric which keeps the face masks splash resistant.

2 The middle layer is where the magic happens, as the meltblown nonwoven fabric acts as a protective filter, boasting > 95% bacterial filtration efficiency.

3 Finally, the hydrophilic inner layer is ultra-soft for sensitive skin and reduces moisture within the mask.

4 Complete with elasticated ear loops and adjustable wire nose bridge that bends to fit the shape of your nose, these comfortable, one-size-fits-all 3_layer Type I face masks are perfect for laypersons in the community setting.
