What quality and standards do these face coverings meet?
When assembled, our 3 layer masks conform to guidance from the W.H.O. (World Health Organization) and the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for breathability and filtration performance.
What are the masks made of?
Each mask is made from a sheet of our specially developed 100% cotton inkjet media. This is laminated onto a backing paper that you simply peel away after printing. A pre-cut inner layer of melt-blown filtration fabric is enveloped by two layers of the 100% cotton. The pack also includes flexible nose-bridge strips, and comfort fit elastic cord for ear-loops.
What do I have to do to make my mask?
It’s really easy and takes just a few minutes. Just print the template onto our inkjet sheet, and use scissors to cut out the mask outline. Fold the fabric in half, placing the inner filtration layer in between and put the nose-bridge strip in place. Fold the flaps of the mask, and seal them using a hot iron and the fabric welding strip included. Attach the elastic ear loops the same way – and your mask is completed!
Are they re-usable?
Like all disposable masks, Snap Style! Masks are designed for wearing for up to 4 hours, after which they should be safely disposed of.
Are they washable?
The inner layer of melt-blown filtration fabric is not washable and its performance would be damaged so we do not recommend or promote the mask as washable.
