Although mostly invisible to the naked eye, the air we breathe is full of tiny particles of; chemicals, soil, smoke, dust, or allergens, in the form of liquids, gases, or solids. When we burn fossil fuels for energy use and production, the release of gases and chemicals creates air pollution, posing a risk to human health and the planet as a whole. These minuscule airborne hazards are referred to as particulate matter, or pm.
Face mask replacement filters are essential in order to protect us from inhaling any type of pollutants such as dust, pollen, smog, haze, viruses, and bacteria. However, not all filters are made equal. The pm2.5 type filter is made to capture 95% of all non-oil, airborne based contaminants.
Each mask comes with a multi-layer pm2.5 filter featuring melt-blown filter and carbon activated fabric. Filters should be replaced every 7 days. Particulate pollutants vary in size and the smaller they are, the more damage they cause to your health. A pm2.5 mask refers to a mask that is able to filter out particulates that have a diameter of 2.5 micrometers (microns) or less. Coronavirus particles are spheres with diameters of approximately 0.125 microns. The smallest particles are 0.06 microns, and the largest are 0.14 microns.
All face mask replacement filters for our various face mask models are found in this collection. There are only two types of replacement filters that are cut to fit many types of face masks. Make sure to purchase the fitting pm2.5 replacement filters for your masks.
