Due to the uniform and fine microcell pore size of our foam, SuperMasks is able to provide a degree of water resistance and protection against water droplets.
By undergoing a process of reticulation, SuperMask’s foam is converted into a porous yet complex mesh-like filtration cell structure that effectively traps and filters particles while allowing breathability. This allows protection against environmental pollution, dust, pollen and some PM2.5 particles.
