SURGICAL MASK - EN 14683:2019 + AC:2019 Type IIR; BFE ≥ 98%
[ASTM LEVEL 2]
Our surgical masks cover the users' nose and mouth and provide a physical barrier to fluids and particles. They meet EN 14683:2019 + AC:2019 Type IIR; BFE ≥ 98% [ASTM LEVEL 2] fluid barrier protection standards and Class I flammability tests.
They are also tested for biocompatibility and are considered medical-grade personal protective equipment (PPE). While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, it may not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the mask and your face.
