1. How do I wash the mask?

  • Sanitise internal + external aspect of the mask daily with aerosolised alcohol based sanitiser ( min 70 % ).
  • Sanitise the valve filter in the same fashion by removing the valve cover and applying sanitiser to the surface area )
  • Hand Wash the mask fortnightly in 30 degree water with soap used for general hygiene.
  • NB Wash with care as the mask has many dynamic components

2. Is the mask durable?

The NanoWave has been designed to be as comfortable as possible while maintaining the highest possible robustness. The end user is advised to please handle the mask with care specifically around the ear loops as well as the nose clip. The nose clip should be moulded ONCE on first application and thereafter only adjusted to fit. Do not straighten and bend repeatedly as this will cause any pliable metal to break.

When removing the mask: ensure careful removal starting with one ear loop and then moving to the other removing the mask in a systematic manner to avoid damage as well as contact with the mask.

3. How long can I use the mask?

The NanoWave is reusable for 30 consecutive days IF sanitized daily and washed weekly. Usage beyond the 30 day period is not advised as the filter components are rated to 30 days.

4. Where can I use the mask ?

NanoWave is a civilian mask combining the class leading filtration technology with advanced textile technology. Our recommendation is day to day use in all seasons. NanoWave can be used while engaging in any form of exercise / physical activity affording the user an additional layer of protection. The NanoWave can be used in various professional environments as per the end user’s discretion.

5. Is the mask certified?

GB/T 32610-2016 Compliance

This standard is a mandatory standard that is proposed by the State Administration of Safety and Production Supervision.
This standard is under the authority of the National Technical Committee for Standardization of Individual Protective Equipment (SAC/TC 112).

The compliance is made up of the following sub-compliance items:
- Respiratory protection Self-absorbing filter gas mask
- Textiles Determination of formaldehyde

Part 1: Free and hydrolysed formaldehyde (water extraction method)
- Textiles Water Extract Measurement of pH
- Technical conditions of the wet heat test chamber
- Technical conditions of the cryogenic test chamber
- High-temperature test chamber technical conditions
- Textiles Seam tensile properties of fabrics and their products

Part 2: Measurement of seam strength by grip method
- Test Methods for Medical Infusions, Blood Transfusions, Syringes

Part 1: Chemical Analysis Methods
- Hygiene standards for single-use sanitary products
- Textiles Determination of prohibited azo dyes
- Determination of 4-aminoazobenzene in textiles
- Textiles Colour fastness test Frictional colour fastness Small area method

6. Does the mask protect the wearer and people around them?

The NanoWave has been designed to add an additional layer of protection to the end user from both airborne and fomite type organisms. The unique dynamic 5 layer filtered unidirectional valve filters the minute amount of air released by the valve. The NanoWave puts a total of 7 layers of specialized filtration layers between the user and the air around them as well as people on the other side of the mask.

7. Where do I store my mask?

The NanoWave can be stored in any clean brown paper bag / Ziploc bag. When handling the NanoWave please ensure that your hands have been sanitized. Storage is ultimately the end users responsibility as dedicated mask hygiene is required to ensure lowest likelihood of contracting/spreading infections of various degrees of virulence.

8. What does the valve do?

The uni-directional valve has been integrated into the mask housing to provide partial C02 release on exhalation so that the wearer’s temperature does not increase and that the mask does not restrict normal breathing during the normal activities of daily life. This unique exhalation valve system is made up of 4 key components: a silicone rubber membrane, a seat cover base, a valve filter and a protective valve cover providing additional protective filtration to the uni-directional valve.

The seat of the valve is designed as a contoured peripheral base, and the valve membrane is attached to the seat. The valve membrane sits against the base to block the valve hole during inhalation and lifts from the base due to the positive pressure established during exhalation. The valve covers provide protection to the delicate valve. Using this base structure - a proprietary filter has been integrated into the valve to add additional filtration to the uni-directional valve.

This proprietary uni-directional valve dissipates small amounts of the wearers normal breathing, C02 exhalation across the surface area of the valve membrane, which is again filtered. Should pressure of any kind beyond normal breathing occur such as a cough the valve closes completely.

9. Are there different sizes?

NanoWave is available in Junior and Adult sizes. Adult sizes have Male and a unique female size which fits perfectly in between.

10. Can I design my own masks ?

We do offer custom branded masks at specific MOQs
