AdhviQ Technologies' Surgical 3-Ply Face Mask
Our 3-ply face masks were sent to an Intertek Testing facility. There it was tested in accordance with ASTM F2101-19, ASTM F2100-19, ASTM F2299-19, ASTM F1862-17, and 16 CFR 1610.
ASTM F2101-19 is a bacterial filtration efficiency test where the product was tested against a flow rate of 28.3 liters per minute containing particles of 3.27 microns. Our product provided 99.9% efficiency and needed a 98% to pass the test.
ASTM F2100-19 is a differential pressure test where the product is tested to gauge airflow from one side of the mask to the other. A result of less than 6 mm H2O/cm2 is required to pass. Our product scored an average of 4.1 mm H2O/cm2 and passed the inspection.
ASTM F2299-19 is particle filtration efficiency test where the product is tested against an airflow rate of 24.05 liters per minute containing particles of 0.1 microns. This test is to be a representation of some viruses. Passing this shows that the product can provide effective filtration against sub-micron particulate matter. A result of 98% filtration is required to pass. Our product passed with an average 99.4% efficiency rate.
ASTM F1862-17 is a fluid resistance test where the product is tested with by its resistance to synthetic blood at a pressure of 120 mm Hg. Passing shows that the product can be used in environments that have a moderate risk of fluid exposure (such as splashes or sprays). 31/32 sampled products passed the test and overall, the product passed the test.
16 CFR 1610 is a test to determine the flammability of the product. Passing the test shows that the product has no risk to burning when held to a flame for 3.5 seconds or longer. Our product did not ignite while exposed to a flame for 3.5 seconds and passed the test.
AdhviQ Technologies Washable Face Mask
Our washable mask has been tested by 4C Air to see if it meets a minimum of 95% efficiency after being washed 10 times. The products sent to 4C Air came from 4 different batches to ensure consistency between the batches. Masks of 4 varying levels of washing were sent. Each batch contained a control mask which wasn’t washed or dried at all. One mask was washed and dried 3 times, one was washed and dried 5 times, and finally, one mask was washed and dried 10 times. Mask ‘A’ refers to the unwashed mask. Mask ‘B’ refers to the mask washed 3 times. Mask ‘C’ refers to the mask washed 5 times. Mask ‘D’ Refers to the mask washed 10 times.
