Replacement Face Mask Filters PM2.5 (set of 2)
PM 2.5 - 5 layer filter including activated carbon and small particulate filters.
PM 2.5 filter means it filters particules over 2.5 microns (ie pollen and most bacteria/viruses).
Filters can last extended periods – discard when become clogged.
Sold as a set of 4 filters per order.
How long do the 2 filters last that are provided with the masks?
The manufacturer states the filters can last one week of daily use (each filter). Proper care should be taken to enable the best life of the filters. This includes never machine washing the filter (ie remove the filter from the mask when washing the mask), inspecting the filters regularly for structural integrity. If the integrity of the filter is compromised (ie the filter is tearing or holes apparent), it should be immediately discarded.
Should I disinfect the filters and how?
The filters can be disinfected if desired (although not required) using UV disinfection (using UVC devices). Disinfecting the filter will not extend its use, but will make it safer to use and wear. Ensure you wash your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser, after handling the filter.
