Face Mask Material: PP Nonwoven Meltblown Fabric | ES Hot Air Cotton | Nose Wire | Earloops

Face mask materials are the base of qualified antiviral masks,

For flat earloop 3 ply face masks, the raw materials are pp non-woven fabric(external and interior layer), melt-blown fabric as the middle filter material, nose wire, and earloops to get better facial fit.

While for the KN95 face mask, more layers are applied, one or two meltblown fabric are added to achieve a better filtration efficiency, and hot air cotton(es fiber) is also used to produced kn95 face mask.

    It's not an easy task to buy the qualified face mask materials, there are many speculators in the market that offering bad quality face mask materials, which can not be used to produce antiviral masks, we, TESTEX, as the mask-making machine manufacturer, mask testing instruments manufacturer, and also produce disposable 3 ply antiviral masks in our own workshop, we can identify the face mask materials quality before purchasing from our supplier by testing the face mask material sample in our textile testing lab with our instruments.

    We have a series of testing instruments to validate the materials we source from the non woven fabric supplier, for example, we will use the Particle Filtration Tester to classify the filtration efficiency of the meltblown fabric, the differential pressure tester to test the breathability of the pp.spunbonded nonwoven fabric, and etc.

    Our aim is to provide you with the right mask materials, which has high filtration efficiency and at the same time easy to breathe,  these are two vital aspects when you buy melt blown fabric from non woven cloth suppliers, rather than negotiating on non woven fabric price only.
