Face masks have become a necessity for many people since the beginning of COVID-19, and they have been shown to protect people from both transmitting and contracting the virus. As face masks have become the new normal worldwide as the nature of the virus is evolving, there have been many advancements to the materials and technologies used when manufacturing face masks, with reusable face masks in Australia becoming increasingly popular.
At Biomed, we manufacture and produce high-quality respiratory face and medical masks which utilise antibacterial and hypoallergenic materials, to suit everybody’s needs. We manufacture and produce various types of face masks that use different materials and fabrics, different layering options and fits, such as:
- The Bioshield
- 5-layer face mask
- 7-layer face mask
- Antibacterial face mask
- 3-layer face mask
- Kids face masks
If you are looking for a face mask that suits you, consider these tips:
How often will you use the face mask?
If you use your face masks regularly, a reusable face mask may be a beneficial option for you to consider. Reusable face masks utilise embedded silver fibres to destroy bacteria and microbial growth, to ensure they are 99 per cent anti-bacterial. Reusable face masks are a durable, efficient and cost-effective option if you are planning on wearing a face mask consistently. Reusable face masks in Australia are growing in popularity due to their versatility, ease and being both environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Reusable face masks are simple to wash as they require to be submerged in boiling water for a minimum of 3 minutes and left to air dry. If you are looking for a face mask that will serve its purpose and is aesthetically pleasing, many reusable face masks have customisable patterns and colours to make them stand out from the crowd!
Disposable face masks are another option that utilises several different layer options and utilises different materials. Disposable masks can be washed a certain number of times depending on the make of the mask and can then be disposed of. Disposable face masks have a 0.075 filtering effect, are dustproof, and have PM2.5 protection. Layered face masks can be cleaned between uses by using a 75 per cent alcohol spray on the surfaces of the mask.
How much protection do you need from your face mask?
A medical mask such as the antibacterial face mask and the BioShield face mask are options that would suit someone who may be immunocompromised and may need extra protection, or for someone who has regular contact with the public or who works in healthcare.
Medical masks utilise medical-grade fabrics which are effective in stopping bacteria, pollen and dust, and are an effective option for reducing the spread and transmission of viruses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Medical masks use fabrics such as copper, wicking, lycra, eco-friendly nylon, and brushed lycra or velvet to achieve the results of stopping bacteria, pollen and dust inhalation. The variety of fabrics and materials used makes medical and health masks customisable, and available with various densities, sizes and colours.
What are your desired needs when choosing your face mask?
Certain face masks are better suited to people who wear glasses that need masks that are less likely to cause glasses to fog up, or with greater rates of breathability and utilise deodorisation. A medical mask with a metal strip at the top can be moulded to fit your nose and create your desired fit.
Medical and health masks may be beneficial for people who have medical concerns, skin sensitivities or personal concerns. The materials used in these masks fight the spread of germs, whilst preventing allergic reactions. Our Biomed medical fabrics and materials experts can help you find the right face mask, medical mask or health mask for you, with the possibility to customise the fabric to suit individual requirements.
Ensure the size and fit of the face mask are correct
The size and fit of a face mask are important in order for the mask to protect you effectively, as well as ensure that the mask is comfortable to wear for a substantial period. Face masks come in both children and adult sizes for females and males, with multiple different sizes ranging from XS to L in various types of masks. Our experts at Biomed can help you to determine which mask size would be the best fit for you.
