An Effective Line of Defense against Viruses (Coronavirus), Bacteria & Microbes

Face masks are intended to be used by medical personnel, patients and general public for the protection against microorganisms, dust particles and fluids. Facemasks are definitely good choice to minimize the exposure to microorganisms and dust particles present in the environment; however, in certain conditions facemask may promote microbial buildup and thus spread infections. Specifically, in current pandemic face masks have become part of our daily life to keep ourselves protected from Coronavirus, however; choosing the right face mask is quite important.

Protector® Antimicrobial Face Masks provide protection against Viruses, Bacteria, Microbes and Dust particles. Viruses, bacteria and microbes are killed upon coming in contact with the mask surface thus, providing maximum protection. Its Antiviral Efficacy has been tested by independent laboratory in accordance to ISO 18184:2019 and proved to 99.9% effective against Coronavirus. While tested Antimicrobial Efficacy of Protector® Face Masks is 99.99% in accordance to ISO 22196 and ASTM E 2180.

Protector® offers Antimicrobial Face Masks in two variants Medical and Surgical. Both types are available in Ear-loop and Tie-on style. Available packaging sizes are:
