Approved medical devices (medical masks, surgical masks)
Thanks to its properties, confirmed by independent test institutes, our washable Topaz® Medical Face Mask is now available on a permanent basis as a fully approved Class 1 medical device bearing the CE mark (MNS). Additionally the masks are certified to Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® in the most stringent category – product class 1 – thus attesting to their soundness in human ecology terms.

Medical 3-ply membrane laminate: The technology
Laminates consist of multi-layer textile composites and are produced by bonding textiles in a durable dot lamination technique to impermeable but breathable (water vapour permeable) membrane systems. It is the membrane system that makes the laminate impermeable to microorganisms and liquids.
As washable reusable products, multi-ply membrane laminates are a long-established and track-tested solution.
Certification according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® confirms the high standards that Trans-Textil requires its Topaz® reusable medical face masks to fulfil in terms of harmlessness in human ecological terms. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide independent testing and certification system for textile products. It certifies conformity with all current limit values far beyond legal requirements. This mask fulfils the requirements of the highest OEKO-TEX® classification, product class I.
Outer layer: 100 % polyester
Intermediate layer/barrier: 100 % polyurethane

Wash before use.
The Topaz® reusable mouth and nose protective masks are available with textile straps for individual tying around the head or with elastic straps around the ears, optionally with a nose clip.
The benefit of reusability
Disinfectant laundering makes the masks ready for use again. Professional reprocessing can be obtained at industrial-scale laundry operations throughout Germany, washing and care instructions are provided with the masks. The repeated usability of the masks helps reduce medical waste.
