A surgical face mask has the primary objective of protecting the healthcare worker and patient against contamination and projections of potentially contagious biological fluids. Since face masks can be worn for long periods of time, the nonwoven fabric used to construct the face mask should be soft and gentle on the skin.
Pleated surgical face masks are typically produced with three layers of nonwoven materials: an inner comfort layer, a middle filtration layer and an outer protection layer. Ahlstrom-Munksjö offers a complete range of surgical face mask material used to construct the finished face mask including the coverstock for the inner and outer layer and the middle filtration/mask lace media layer.
