Jun. 17, 2019

Nowadays, we can see that many people often wear Disposable Face Mask on the street. Why is this happening? It turns out that because the air quality is getting worse, the dust and bacteria in the air will cause discomfort to the human body through the respiratory tract. In order to solve this situation, people often choose to wear a face mask when going out.

According to different number of uses, the dust mask can be divided into three types: one-time, repeated use, and maintenance-free. Why can the disposable dust mask be used only once? Since it is called a disposable mask, it naturally has its truth. Now as a professional factory who is doing Disposable Medical Products Wholesale,I will tell you the reason. Let's take a brief look at it.


First of all, disposable face masks are generally made of materials such as non-woven fabrics. Such materials are extremely fragile, and damaged dust masks are not safe for the user's breathing. The filter material of the disposable face mask is usually an activated carbon filter layer, which is easy to damage the structure after washing, then resulting in loss of filtration effect.


Second, the outer layer of the disposable face masks often accumulates a lot of dust, bacteria and other dirt in the outside air, while the inner layer blocks the exhaled bacteria and saliva. It must be noted that the two sides cannot be confused. If it is worn for a long time, the dust mask will be wetted by the exhaled hot air or saliva. And its blocking effect will be greatly weakened, so it is recommended to replace it. It should not be used repeatedly.
