Face masks, referred to by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as respiratory protection, provide face and respiratory barrier protection whenever "splashes, sprays, splatters, or droplets of blood or OPIM pose a hazard." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, guidelines also state that masks must be worn to protect the respiratory tract from airborne infectious agents. When left unprotected, mucous membranes of the mouth and nose can be portals of entry for microorganisms into the body. Respiratory protection is meant to protect both portals to the respiratory system. Inhalation of airborne droplets can lead to many types of respiratory infections, including colds, influenza, tuberculosis, and others.

To highlight the quality and effectiveness of ValuMax Extra-Safe-Sensitive Face Masks, below is the breakdown of it’s features.

  • Delta P, or Differential Pressure, represents the pressure drop across the mask or resistance to air flow in mmH2O/cm2. The higher the Delta P, the less breathability, but the better the filtration. ValuMax masks have a Delta P<2.5.
  • The PFE, or Particulate Filtration Efficiency, represents percentage of particles filtered out at a pore size of 0.1–1.0 microns. It’s the measure of the efficiency of the mask in filtering particles passing through it. ValuMax’s PFE of 99.7% is considered one of the highest in the industry.
  • The BFE, or Bacterial Filtration Efficiency, represents the percentage of bacteria filtered out at pore size of 1–5 microns. It’s the measure of efficiency of the mask filtering bacteria through it. With a BFE of 99.5%, ValuMax’s masks are one of the best forms of protection.
