General Purpose Mask Usage
Our general purpose Quartz™ and Feather™ masks are multi-use. We recommend wearing the mask 10x times (or 80 hours) and then disposing of the mask. Our starting filtration is >98% BFE and PFE @ 0.1 micron versus a cloth mask offering ~50-60%. Wearing and washing general purpose Quartz and Feather will degrade their filtration. The Quartz version of our mask offers anti-fog. The anti-fog layer does degrade with usage and washing. We recommend applying a new anti-fog layer if you start to experience increased fog, condensation levels, or if you have recently cleaned or washed your mask. You may also experience increased fogging during quick temperature transitions. Wiping your mask may also accelerate the degradation of anti-fog performance. BendShape masks are made with premium materials and high quality construction. Please see Washing & Care Instructions for details about washing, cleaning, and caring for your BendShape mask. For optimal filtration and anti-fog performance, we recommend single use between 45 - 90°F.
ASTM3 Mask Usage
Our Quartz and Feather ASTM3 surgical masks are recommended as single-use, disposable masks. For optimal ani-fog performance, we recommend that Quartz ASTM3 surgical mask be used between 45 - 90°F. Please see Washing & Care Instructions for details about washing, cleaning, and caring for your BendShape mask.
