Membrane technology increases wear duration in washable medical devices acc. to EN 14683, type IIR
Mask wearers working in high temperatures and in refrigerated areas such as cold stores have one problem in particular: the material in standard masks soon wets through due to exhaled moisture and sweat. Thus the masks have to be frequently changed to avoid the unpleasant feeling of damp on the skin and loss of protection most especially. Significantly reducing this risk with special membrane technology, the German manufacturer Trans-Textil GmbH offers washable surgical masks acc. to EN 14683, type IIR as ecologically responsible medical devices for frequent re-use.
