Can disposable masks be reused?
Reuse of disposable masks is not recommended.
One of the key features of these disposable masks is the utilization of ultra-fine electrostatic fiber and its electrostatic adsorption capacity. Disposal masks use the principle of electrostatic adsorption to adhere viruses and droplets to the outer layer of the masks, preventing them from entering the respiratory tract. This makes the mask an effective preventative health care product.
In many applications, these masks are recommended to be replaced within four hours or less, depending on the environment, use, policies, procedures and expertise, contamination, institution and geographic region surrounding the application. Instructions received with the masks must be strictly adhered to.
