What is the Airific 2.0 face covering made of?
The Airific is one of the best pollution masks consists of three layers. In the middle layer, we use an electro spun nanofiber media to provide a higher level of safety and protection and filter down to particle sizes up to 0.1 micron (including respiratory droplets and pollutants such as bacteria, pollen and other allergens) as small as 0.1 micron in size.
Each face covering’s middle-layer media is estimated to contain over 25km of nanofiber in an area less than 1mm thick.
The inner and outer layers are made of all-natural fabrics namely cotton, linen, hemp and flax.
What are the safety procedures for handling a face covering?
You have to wash your hands with soap/sanitizer before and after you touch your face covering. Only touch the face covering from the ear loops to wear and remove it. Avoid touching the outer or inner face of the face covering as it may be contaminated.

If you have been in a crowded space, then you must disinfect after every use, irrespective of the length of time of usage.
How do we identify that the Airific needs to be discarded?
If the fit is compromised in any way, so that all the air on the inhale is not being forced through the face of the mask, then it is time to get a replacement. In addition, do replace your mask if the breathing resistance becomes too high.
What is the process for disposal?

The mask is so lightweight, does it actually have a filter in the middle layer?
We use nanotech fibres in the middle layer, while the inner and outer layers are made with natural breathable fabrics. One of our metrics is to reduce the weight of the mask to drive comfort with each version - the goal is to deliver a featherweight mask, so the user doesn’t even realise that they have a mask on.
Is it a 3-layer mask?
Yes, outer and inner layers are made using natural breathable fabrics and the middle is made from an electrospun nanotech filter. It is one of the best air pollution masks available in the market.
Considering that the mask has three layers, is it breathable and comfortable?
Based on test reports of inhalation and exhalation resistance from Nelson Labs, USA, the Airific is one of the best air pollution masks and is the most breathable mask in the category of masks with similar efficacy.
