How does a polypropylene filter work?

28 September 2020

Electrostatic Filtration! Face mask filtration mechanisms have to optimize between two competing requirements. The mask filters must have a pore size small enough to trap particles, but a pore size too small also prevents the individual from breathing, so mask filters cannot go below a certain average pore diameter.


1) Inertial Impaction: Aerosol or dust particles typically 1 micron or larger in size with enough inertia to prevent them from flowing around the fibers in the filtration layers slam into the mask material and get filtered.


2) Diffusion: Particles smaller than 1 micron, usually 0.1 microns and smaller that are not subject to inertia undergo diffusion and get stuck to fibrous layers of the filter while undergoing brownian motion around the tortuous porous matrix of the filter fiber.


3) Electrostatic attraction: This mechanism employs electrocharged polymer or resin fibers that attract both large and small oppositely charged particles and trap them.

Electrostatic Filter layers?

Ok, I love science, and I do a ton of research on literally everything. This concept intrigues me greatly; Electrostatic Filtration. Basically dumbed down to, static electricity cause by two differing materials, creating a charge to repel well...droplets...

 "The outstanding improvement in every filtration parameter, reliably attainable by aerosol charging and/or by imposing an electric field on the filter,

indicates clearly that fabric filtration has now reached an even higher

plateau in particulate control technology." Fibers, Electrostatics, and Filtration:

So we decided to see what charges best, naturally.

Did Someone Say T-SHIRTS?

06 July 2020

I've never been much for blogging, heck, I'm not even much for posting clever IG posts. I always struggle for the right words to say. I am proud to announce, however, our new T-Shirt line coming soon. We are super happy of what we're getting into, and everyone loves t-shirts....right?!?! Especially clever ones...now this...I can do. Can't wait to post on this newly developing way our business is headed. Stay tuned my friends.

Do our Masks have Filters?

28 April 2020

No. Cloth faced masks are not to be mistaken for surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Cloth masks are for deterring large airborne particles and droplets and to prevent facial touching. Health professionals emphasize that this is an important way to minimize the spread of viral transmission. Filters can present risks; many are not breathable and may contain harmful fibers that may be inhaled. The average person does not need the level of filtration that filters provide. However, if an opening for a filter is needed, please contact us. We recommend 2 or more masks per individual as they should be washed daily to maximize effectiveness. These masks are not to be confused with medical or N95 masks and will not prevent disease.

Enter the Mask

"Health Canada recommends the use of a mask or face covering every time you are in public or in proximity of people that are not members of your household." 

Well... here we go.
