Compliance and Testing

The Silver Life Face Covering USPs:

  • Fully compliant with the recommendations of the WHO – the only authority making recommendations for standardized use of face coverings in the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Made entirely of a silver-based fabric manufactured into our face covering using advanced 3D knitting technology. Silver is a well-known, proven, anti-microbial element.
  • The textile is proven to destroy viruses, bacteria and fungi and is:
    • Fully, successfully, tested against human coronavirus.
  • Filters particulates with over 99.9% efficiency down to THREE microns.
  • Reusable for up to 100 washes at 60 degrees C and can be hand washed.
  • Fully effective when wet – unlike the existing PPE/N-95 face coverings (incl the FFP2 mask).
  • The polyester component is derived from 100% recycled material.
  • Meets US Environmental Protection Agency standards for disposal – the only silver- based material that does so.
  • Fully adjustable in a “one-fits-all” design.
  • Produced in line with international manufacturing and safety standards.

The Life Face Covering is available in black and can be “white-labelled” as necessary.

Other colours will be available early in 2021.

NOTE:

  • Our Life Face Covering is not a FFP2 mask.
  • FFP2 masks are classified as a respirator and only work (and are tested) on particulates. FFP2 masks are not antiviral, antibacterial nor antifungal.
  • FFP2 masks are not effective when wet.
