Now because the masks are very nervous, I only bought disposable masks. Do you want to know what is the difference between medical masks and disposable masks? And do you know what is the use of disposable masks?
This passage is going to talk about following questions about disposable mask and medical mask:
General differences between disposable mask and medical mask
What is the difference between medical masks and disposable masks?
What is the use of disposable masks?
How long can disposable masks last?
The difference between disposable protective masks and medical masks, first of all, is the difference in nature. Disposable protective masks are mostly made of two layers of non-woven fabrics. At this time, there is no filter layer and waterproof layer in the middle, and the protection level is low. Medical masks are made of multiple layers of non-woven fabrics. They have a higher level of protection and contain filter layers and waterproof layers. Their protective effects are also different. Disposable protective masks are mainly used to filter dust and particles; medical masks are mainly used to resist liquids, droplets, filter dust particles, bacteria, viruses, etc.
1. Different properties: disposable masks are made of two layers of 28 grams of non-woven fabric. Medical masks are mostly made of one or more layers of non-woven fabric.
2. Different processes: The main production processes of medical masks include melt-blown, spun-bond, hot-air or needle punch, etc., which are equivalent to resisting liquids, filtering particles and bacteria, and are a kind of medical protective textiles. The disposable three-layer mask is made of two layers of fiber non-woven fabrics for professional use in medical and sanitation, and a layer of filter melt spray cloth with more than 99% filtering and antibacterial in the middle is welded by ultrasonic.
3. The effect is different: under the condition of air flow (85±2) L/min, the filtration efficiency of the medical mask to the median aerodynamic diameter (0.24±0.06) μm sodium chloride aerosol is not less than 95%, which is in line N95 (or FFP2) and above. It can block airborne infectious agents with a diameter of <5μm or close contact with infectious agents transmitted by droplets. Disposable masks cannot.
Disposable masks are very breathable; they can filter toxic gases; they can keep warm; they can absorb water; they can be waterproof; they are stretchable; they will not be messy; they feel very good and quite soft; they are lighter than other masks ; Very elastic, it can be restored after stretching; the price is relatively low, suitable for mass production; but there are also disadvantages: compared with other fabric masks, disposable masks cannot be cleaned because the fibers are arranged in a certain direction , So it is easier to be torn apart; compared with other textile masks, the strength and durability of disposable masks are worse than other masks.
Disposable masks cannot be reused, and generally need to be replaced after 6-8 hours of use. Moreover, the two sides of the mask cannot be used interchangeably, because the outer layer of the mask often accumulates a lot of dust, bacteria and other dirt in the outside air, while the inner layer blocks the exhaled bacteria and saliva. If the two sides are used alternately, it will Some dirt and other substances on the outer layer directly adhere to the mouth and nose.
