Hundreds of face masks filter airborne particles but most aren't designed to target bacteria and viruses. Even when they do filter dangerous germs, the trapped microorganisms are still present on the mask and can remain active for days.
There is a risk that germs can be transferred by breathing and handling the mask or from surface to surface.
AVIRO face masks are different. They are engineered with HeiQ Viroblock, a technology that inhibits the presence and growth of bacteria and viruses on fabric, creating a germ resistant surface.
Face masks are a potential surface for viruses and bacteria. During, before and after use, there is a risk of transferring pathogens or picking up pathogens from the surface of the face mask. For example: when picking it up, wearing and adjusting, removing or storing.
HOW IT WORKS
The fabric on the outer layer is engineered with HeiQ Viroblock, an advanced antiviral and antibacterial technology that inhibits the presence and growth of bacteria and viruses, creating a germ resistant surface.
Is constructed from a non-woven industry standard filter. Safely enclosed between the antimicrobial outer and inner layers, allowing the mask to be safely washed and reused.
The inner layer is also treated with HeiQ Viroblock to reduce the risk of contamination. This layer is made from a breathable and technical fabric that is comfortable to wear and doesn’t retain moisture.
Treated with an advanced antimicrobial technology which reduces viral and bacterial activity on textiles. This significantly diminishes the risk of them transferring microorganisms to you and to other surfaces. The technology is dermatologically tested and safe on skin.
Can be used for extended periods and reused before washing. AVIRO masks can be washed multiple times. Learn more here. Offering a sustainable alternative to single use face masks.
Designed to be worn comfortably for extended periods of time. The inner and outer layers are made with industry leading filament grading technology. It allows for a breathable and technical fabric that doesn’t retain moisture in the same way cotton and other natural fibres do.
