PPE Mask Testing and COVID-19
While there are many viruses and bacteria that we should be protecting ourselves from, COVID-19 is the most concerning one at this point in time. Rankin PPE masks and gowns have undergone extensive testing at Johns Hopkins University. The primary mask material has shown BFE and PFE Filtration Standards of over 99%. In testing, a washed sterile wrap mask had a collection rate of 99% for particle sizes of 5 μm. The coronavirus is approximately 0.1 μm. For particles of that size, the washed sterile material had a collection efficiency of nearly 75%. That is extremely high for a reusable fabric mask.
