Most everyday masks made of fabric are far removed from such functions. “I would advise against these models. They often look good, but the filtration performance is either far too low or it is hard to breathe if they consist of several layers of fabric”, Caesar explains. Not all masks are the same. He says it is therefore important for people to pay attention to quality if they want to protect other people efficiently.
Freudenberg has had its Collectex masks tested in independent laboratories according to medical standards. They are also labeled with the European CE mark as a medical product. When people buy everyday masks with this marking, they can be sure that they meet high standards, for example in terms of tolerability and performance.
