The Re think Reusable Type 1 Mask Filter is the best reusable alternative to the traditional single-use medical mask. It has been designed to meet the filtration performance, differential pressure and microbial cleanliness requirements for a Type 1 Medical Face Mask as set out in SANS 1866-1 and European Standard EN14683. When the nanofiber filter is used in combination with a compatible cloth mask, it is intended to effectively function as a medical device-grade Type 1 Medical Mask.

A few key characteristics about these masks clearly distinguish them from the rest, as they ensure superior performance and increased benefits to all who use them. Their performance characteristics are tested according to a set of standardized test methods (ASTM F2100, EN 14683, or equivalent) that aim to balance high filtration efficiency, high breathability and optionally, fluid penetration resistance.

FAQ’s ON FILTERS

So, I can save money on logistics?2020-11-27T04:41:58-05:00

In Addition to improved safety and convenience, reusable masks provide additional benefits such as:

  • The number of masks that need to be sourced is reduced by 90%, since every filter replaces 9 out of 10 single-use masks.
  • The reduced volume of masks simplifies the logistics of getting them to their intended users.

  • Each nanofiber filter avoids the use of 9 single-use masks, thereby drastically reducing the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of.

  • The nanofiber filters and compatible masks can be disinfected at home by submerging in boiling hot water, so no special equipment or additional chemical disinfectants are needed.
Can the filters be used in any mask?2021-03-26T04:31:28-04:00

Yes, RethinkReusable Surgical Mask Filters can be used in any compatible face mask with a suitable filter pocket.

The Rethink cloth mask is designed with a filter pocket that works very well with the RethinkReusable Surgical Mask Filter. The filters can be bought separately.

Can the filter be re-used?2021-03-26T04:32:49-04:00

After the initial use, the RethinkReusable Surgical Mask Filter can be disinfected with boiling hot water and reused 9 times. This is a significant differentiator from the filter media used in traditional single-use masks. Numerous systematic studies* on the extended use, re-use, or reprocessing of single-use medical masks have shown that extended use and re-use of single-use medical masks leads to diminished performance.

Filter specifications?2020-11-26T15:32:47-05:00

The nanofiber filter layer ensures that the mask has a particle (PFE) and bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) greater than 95%, whilst keeping the breathability very high (< 40 Pa/cm²), in line with European standard EN 14683.

What does the filter consist of?2020-11-26T15:33:55-05:00

It consists of a filtering layer of tiny PVDF nanofibers with diameters smaller than 155 nanometers. This layer is created through a process called electrospinning with SNC’s patented high-throughput ball-electrospinning technology (SNC BEST®).

FAQ’s ON MASKS

Why are single-use masks bad for the environment?2020-11-27T04:40:39-05:00

It is estimated that 129 billion* single-use face masks are being used per month in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. This mind-boggling volume of single-use masks poses an extraordinary risk to the environment. Landfills and oceans already bear evidence of the crisis on hand.

Can I wash the mask?2020-11-26T16:43:05-05:00

The cloth masks are machine washable and can be disinfected with boiling hot water. The cloth masks are made from a durable polyester warp knit fabric which is quick-drying, to ensure the user can continue to use the mask soon after washing.

Does the mask have a nose piece?2020-11-27T05:56:53-05:00

The Rethink compatible cloth mask designs have a wire nose piece to ensure optimal conformance to the wearer’s face and have been extensively field-tested and refined to ensure maximum user comfort.

Optional fabric finishes?2020-11-26T14:33:43-05:00

Masks also come with optional fabric finishes for water repellency, flame retardancy, and antiviral and antibacterial activity.

Does the mask come with ear loops or ties?2020-11-26T14:35:21-05:00

Different mask designs, using ear loops or ties, and different sizes, ensure that masks can be selected for different face shapes and use scenarios.
