What is the difference between ASTM Level 1/2/3?

ASTM is the North America Standard for Medical Masks

Civil use or non-medical masks are not formally tested to the North American ASTM level

The chart below shows the ASTM F2100-19 standard

What does a Polypropylene layer do?

The polypropylene layer in our masks is hydrophobic, meaning it repels water. As such, the layer acts as a filter and helps trap the small particles transferred through airflow

The Government of Canada states the proper structure of a mask should include a middle layer of filter-type fabric, such as non-woven polypropylene fabric

Our masks are designed to adhere to these guidelines, and to keep you safe

What are your masks made of?

Every mask we make contains an inner layer of our polypropylene fabric

Our 3-ply masks have two additional layers of non-woven fabric on either side

Our 4-ply masks have another layer of our non-woven fabric on the outside of the mask and gives us the unique ability to add depth to our colours

Do your masks contain graphene or biographene?

No

Viral Clean masks DO NOT and HAVE NEVER contained graphene or biographene

Are your masks medical grade?

Yes! We are licensed by Health Canada and manufacture level 1, 2 and 3 disposable medical-grade masks with a melt-blown polypropylene layer!

We also offer non-medical masks that remain a protective choice for yourself and your loved ones. Be sure to filter your search when shopping if you are looking for a particular level of protection

Are these masks washable?

Our masks are intended for single-use and are disposable

All of our masks are made with an inner layer of polypropylene fabric as recommended by the Government of Canada. Washing these masks may damage this protective layer and greatly reduce the protection the masks provide. Because of this, we cannot recommend washing them

Are your masks re-useable/recyclable?

Our masks are intended for single-use and are disposable

Currently, there are no mask recycling programs available to consumers in Canada. We recommend you place soiled masks in general waste

How do I dispose of my mask after use?

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Canadian Red Cross instruct you to discard your disposable mask after use in the following way:


1. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before handling the mask

2. Grab the ear loops, avoid touching the mask

3. Discard mask in a garbage bin

4. Wash hands or use hand sanitizer after handling


Please consider cutting or breaking the ear loops when disposing of masks, this can help stop wildlife from getting tangled and trapped in our waste

How long can I wear one of these masks?

There is no set amount of time for these masks, Health Canada recommends you replace your mask if it becomes wet, soiled or dirty

You may also want to replace your mask if you were in a densely populated areas (shopping centers) or between clients/customers if you have to be in close proximity. Consult your governing regulations if you have one (RMT, Nurses, Dentists…)

ASTM medical masks are intended as single use and should be disposed of after each use

Do you have different masks sizes?

Yes!

Apart from our traditional adult sizes, we also offer 3-ply children’s masks. These are also a great fit for adults who find the adult sizing too large for them

Look in the category “Kids Size Masks” for the designs we have currently in stock

What's the size difference between the adult and kids masks?




The difference between an adult or kid size mask is:

the width of the mask and the ear loops

Kids Size Mask is 14cm wide, Ear Loops are approx: 15cm

Adult Size Mask is 17cm wide, Ear loops are approx: 16cm

Can you change the size of the ear loops?

We are able to change the ear loop sizing on our machines to make them bigger or smaller depending on your needs. When placing an order, please let us know if you would like bigger or smaller ear loops! 

*There is no extra cost for this personalized service, however due to necessary modifications of the production process, there may be an increased wait-time*

Why should I choose disposable masks vs. cloth masks?

The Centre for Disease Control found that the filtration effectiveness of cloth masks is generally lower than that of medical masks and respirators. To read more about that please visit the following site: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/10/20-0948_article

Having a mask that includes a layer of polypropylene melt blown fabric is recommended by the Government of Canada. Every mask we make, whether it is medical or non-medical includes this layer of protective fabric
