KILLS VIRUSES EMITTED BY THE USER AND THIS IS ESPECIALLY RELEVANT FOR ASYMPTOMATIC USERS

The Inner Layer Antiviral material serves to kill viruses emitted by the user and this is especially relevant for asymptomatic users who contaminate their mask and then when handling the masks they contaminate their hands and the surrounding with infectious viruses.

REDUCE THE RISK OF SARS-COV-2 CROSS-CONTAMINATION

The whole issue is cross-contamination due to the misuse and reuse of regular masks. Сross-contamination is an inadvertent transfer of bacteria/viruses or other contaminants from one surface to another. The most common type of cross-contamination related to COVID-19 is the transfer of harmful microorganisms. This is a particular concern with bacterial or viral cross-contamination. Facemask-to-surface (like a door handle, elevator button, etc.) cross-contamination can happen when you touch the virus/bacteria-infected mask on your face and then the surfaces around you.

SARS-CoV-2 virus can be retrieved from the surface of regular masks even after 7 days of exposure of the mask to the virus. Reference:” Chin AWH, et al. (2020) Stability of SARS-CoV-2 in different environmental conditions”. Lancet Microbe; 1(1): e10.)

Copper-Inside Mask’s material with Copper Oxide particles reduces all kinds of cross-contamination, especially SARS-COV-2 cross-contamination. Copper-Inside Mask prevents cross-contamination and inadvertent transfer of bacteria/viruses or other contaminants from infected masks to other surfaces.

FEATURES ARE SUSTAINABLE FOR THE PRODUCT LIFETIME
  • The Copper-Inside mask was successfully tested for 7 days of anti-bacterial sustainability.
  • The result shows the Mask has been proven to sustain antimicrobial efficacy, achieving > 99.9% antimicrobial efficacy even after 7 repeated inoculations of high titers of bacteria.
  • The copper oxide particles are a potent ability to repel viruses that do not decline over time. The mask is working exactly the same (99.9% killing bacteria and viruses ) after 7 days.
BACTERIA CONTAMINATION ON INSIDE AND OUTSIDE AREAS OF THE MASK

Bacteria or fungi can proliferate in a regular mask. They do form colonies and contaminate on inside and outside areas of the mask.
The added value of Copper-Inside mask material is antibacterial properties which prevents proliferation of the bacteria and fungi on inside layer and outside layer, providing dual protection.

ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION

By using Copper-Inside mask you use less regular masks and less plastic is being spread.

ISRAEL TECHNOLOGY

Israeli Copper Inside Mask material is produced from a tiny amount of copper particles CU2O which are blended during the development of polymers.

The raw material for the masks produced in Israel, embeds various copper formulations in select polymers that enable finished products to deliver the desired impact.

COPPER-OXIDE PROCESS

Copper-Inside Technology Process
HOW IT WORKS

Functionality and Property of copper oxide (CU2O): Copper is a known antiviral and antibacterial microbial material. The element dramatically affects bacteria through ions that damage bacterial cells. Copper is registered with the EPA as a public-health antimicrobial product because of its proven antiviral features. When bacteria and copper ions come into contact, the copper ions weaken the outer membrane of the bacteria cell through the process of oxidation.

Copper is toxic to the inside of the bacteria cell and, eventually, the copper ions cause the cell to rupture. The cell then loses its vital structure and finally dies. Copper has multiple pathways to damage the virus & bacteria. That makes it more difficult for viruses & bacteria to become resistant to its powerful effect.

According to the latest MedCu Laboratory Report “Determination of Antimicrobial Efficacy of MedCu Masks following 7 sequential inoculations of Klebsiella pneumoniae” the mask presents very good efficacy (> 99.9%) and does not deteriorate with time even after 7 days.

As proven in multiple researches and laboratories tests the Copper’s Potent Antibacterial and Antiviral Properties. Copper Oxide micro-particles are applied on non-woven non-binding fabric layers, repel viruses, and bacterias.

  • The same Copper particles eliminate new viruses every single day, forever
  • The copper oxide particles are potent for life and their ability to repel viruses do not decline over time

dual side effect

The mask itself is made out of three layers. The outer layer prevents droplets from entering and holds microscopic copper oxide polymers. The middle layer traps small particles that may pass through the outer layer. It also prevents the flow of particles outward. The inner layer is close to the nose and mouth and was designed to absorb moisture, also holds microscopic copper oxide polymers.

A tiny amount of copper particles are blended into the mask hence the brownish or salmon-pink color. The copper antiviral properties do not decline over time. So as long as the mask is physically intact, it provides protection without a need for sterilization.

Copper-inside mask layers

Layer A:

Copper micro-particles based external non-woven non-binding fabric provides bacteria-free clean airflow

Layer B:

The internal non-woven fabric keeps the bacteria trapped in the layer

Layer C:
