Cloth Face Coverings & Surgical Masks
Air will always travel the path of least resistance:
Thus, making a complete air tight seal of great importance, that behind-the-ear strap "cloth face coverings", and the like, do not provide. These surgical masks types (and cloth face coverings) simply serve as a preventative barrier to reduce droplets and large particles expelled from the user upon others. Due to the lack of a tight seal, it does not effectively protect the user from inhalation of contaminated air of fine particles.
The Carbon Fusion 95 (CF95) provides real protection with an air tight seal and 6 layers of filtration media:
These mask are not your typical "cloth face coverings" that are found everywhere, they provide actual high filtration efficiency. No woven cloth fabrics are used. All full synthetic fibers, non woven, spun-bound and melt-blown fabrics with multi polypropylene filtration layers. CF95 respirator masks does not use behind the ear loop straps. It has braided elastic upper (w/adjustable tension) and lower straps through steel eyelets to provide a very strong, complete air tight seal on the user. For serious protection from airborne particulates.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) all regulate N95s' and the like, state:
''While a surgical mask (and cloth face coverings) may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a surgical mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and your face."
"Surgical masks", as the name implies, was designed to be donned by surgeons and nurses during surgery, to prevent the surgeons and nurses from expelling their own germs and saliva droplets into the open cavity of a patient, as a means to prevent infection.
NOTICE: We apologize, as this page and website is incomplete, we will be added more information and data of relevance to these subject matters as we go in the coming days and weeks. With the nations extreme shortage in PPEs' and N95s' and so many without proper respirator protection, we have prioritize the manufacturing and distribution of our CF95 respirators to the public. Thank you for your understanding.
