Emergency filtration medical grade adhesion mask. Filters out Bird Flu sized particles and reduces inhalation risk virus such as Germs, Pollens, Fumes, Allergens, Molds, Dust,and Smoke. Viramask with Viraseal provides features that are not available in other masks. The Viramask comes packaged conveniently with 5 separate masks.
VIRAMASKTM with Viraseal is real world tested for optimum viral seal using medical adhesion grade conformable flexible adhesive to lock the advanced filtration media to the face. This is actually how NIOSH certifies the N, R, and P type respirator masks by hot melt gluing the test masks to the filter testing machine faceplate. Why The VIRAMASKTM with Viraseal?
The glaring deficiency of present mask technology seems to be excessive TOTAL INWARD LEAKAGE which the CDC and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH/CDC) have recognized for some time as an Achilles heal of mask technology. NIOSH NPPTL, (THE NATIONAL PERSONAL PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGY LABORATORY) has an ongoing program for correction of the leakage problem TIL PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS for TOTAL INWARD LEAKAGE which has not as yet been implemented.
Basically, infectious virus laden air will take the least resistant pathway into your lungs and bypass any facemask filters by going around and through ANY face to mask openings. There are plenty of opportunities in existing facemasks so instead of a 5% penetration resistance rating; the individual ill fitting mask may instead be a 25% or greater "LEAKER."
This is as good as no protection at all when millions of viruses are airborne indoors with just one person nearby coughing or sneezing or even talking! With the flu, unlike SARS, you may not know the symptoms and still be infectious!
Wein found this pandemic adhesion emergency filtration mask to also be the best solution for real world airborne germ hazard lockout and have constructed the VIRAMASKTM with Viraseal, with hypoallergenic breathable and conformable surgical adhesion. This construction forces the inhaled virus loaded air to go through the advanced filtration media rather than around it and directly into the lungs.
Testing by leading respiratory protection experts have confirmed VIRAMASKTM with Viraseal NIOSH N99 pre certification ratings for filter depth loading, inhalation, exhalation, and bacterial and viral filtration of greater than 99.9% and 85 lpm. At normal breathing rates, penetration of bird flu sized particles is less than .05% at 30 lpm.
