Reusable Face Masks – Graphene Enhanced FFP2 R

Introducing the Reusable Graphene Enhanced Face Mask from the UK’s very own Versarien PLC.

Versarien’s FFP2 R Graphene Face Mask has received official certification confirming this mask as reusable. The environmental benefits and lifetime cost of the mask when compared to ‘single use masks’ are clear.

A novel reusable mask that combines world class British technology with high quality PPE to help in the fight against viral transmission.

The graphene enhanced face mask range is a very exciting development that can help us manage current social distancing restrictions in every day life, public spaces, schools, the work place etc. This is not just a simple face covering but a filtering face piece. Finding certified masks that are also certified as reusable (FFP2 R) is of huge benefit to the wearer and the environment.

These Graphene Protective Face Masks provide an enhanced level of protection. Whilst we follow government guidelines for face coverings to be worn, or make a personal decision to wear one, this advanced protective mask has many advantages.

The added benefit of being reusable whilst retaining it’s ability to meet the filtration standards for several cleaning cycles offers cost savings over single use masks. This is subject to many factors, especially how it is stored, sanitised, washed and handled. No fixed guarantee of lifespan can be provided and the user must make that judgment based on its condition, however even after some deterioration, this mask is still an excellent face covering when compared to others.

See care instructions for more information.

A four-ply design

To help provide enhanced protection against airborne bacteria and to minimise the spread of viral infection, the face mask has a robust four-ply design which uniquely boosts filtration.

The four-ply arrangement offers users a beneficial level of protection against airborne allergens, pathogens, pollen, and dust particles that are larger than 0.3 microns in size,  providing >94% air filtration and meeting FFP2  R standards. The mask provides improved breathability, and offers significant comfort when worn. The ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution is enabled via adjustable ear loop straps to supply extra comfort.

The mask is enhanced with a coated layer utilising Polygrene™. Polygrene™ is an advanced graphene-based material featuring Nanene™ – the world’s only independently Verified Graphene Product certified by The Graphene Council.

The benefits of our Graphene Enhanced Face Mask?

Can be Cleaned

Our range of FFP2 R rated face masks are certified and the mask life can be extended by using our disinfectant spray along with the care instructions provided.

  • CE Marked
  • Approved under REACH
  • Also reached KN95 standard in accordance
    with GB2626-2019.

Consequently, they meet the guidelines issued by the World Health Organisation and have been approved by REACH.

Environmental Impact – Reusable

Our face masks can be worn more than once and have been developed in such a way that they can be cleaned using Versarien’s sanitiser spray or carefully washed and reused multiple times. Investing in one of our masks reduces the impact on the environment significantly as a reusable FFP2 R rated option instead of single use disposable masks.  They also come in a pouch that can be used to keep the mask clean and protected from deterioration when stored.

Versarien’s new disinfectant spray can also be used instead of washing to kill surface bacteria from the mask without compromising the lifespan of the material. This disinfectant spray is Chemical free and non-toxic. See our shop for more specific product information.

CERTIFICATION

Our Graphene Enhanced Face Masks not only contain Graphene as an additive, but they been developed in the laboratory and have successfully passed the tests required to meet FFP2 R / KN95, CE, EN149 standards as below and are fully certified.

Not just a face covering, but a FILTERING FACE MASK

European Standard: EN 149:2001+A1:2009 (FFP2 R)

CE-marked in accordance with the requirements of European Directive EU 2016-425

Product Performance: PFE≥95%,

KN95 Standard in accordance with GB2626-2019

Comfortable

Our masks are available in a variety of colours and sizes for both adults and children. The benefits of a Graphene enhanced mask are that they light, comfortable, cool and effective.

  • No valve = 2 way protection
  • Fully adjustable nose strip and ear straps
  • Can be worn for 8+ hours at a time (Clogging tested)

Reduced-Fogging Effect

If worn correctly, the benefit of this FFP2 R rated mask is the fit. With a very good seal around the outer perimeter, including across the bridge of the nose, those fogging glasses can become much less of an issue!

Sizing for adults and children

Our masks are available in two sizes and types to equip the whole family. Only Adult sizes can be effectively tested and certified to meet FFP2 R ratings and these ratings mentioned on our site are only relevant to the adult sizes. The children’s masks do however offer very good protection manufactured using the same technology, however these are classed as face covers. Both adults and children’s masks are available in multiple colours for the whole family. With such variety, wearing a graphene enhanced face mask is now possible in the cafe, in the work place and in the class room, you decide!

What is Graphene?

Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice and was considered to be a breakthrough in science in 2004 by two scientists at the University of Manchester in England. Both scientists later went on to win the Nobel Prize.

The applications for Graphene are seemingly endless, with laboratories working to develop new ways of producing Graphene in various forms for use in commercial products that will touch us all in one way or another.

According to the Graphene Council, Graphene is described as the thinnest and strongest material known to man. It is the best conductor of electricity, nearly transparent and also the best conductor of heat, even better than diamond, also a carbon material.

Why Graphene + PPE?

Working with Versarien PLC’s Graphene products, we are confident our face masks are one of the best on the market.

In reference to the materials used in this face mask and as quoted by Versarien:

” The mask is enhanced with a coated layer utilising Polygrene™. Polygrene™ is an advanced graphene-based material featuring Nanene™ – the world’s only independently Verified Graphene Product certified by The Graphene Council.”

What is FFP2 R?

FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece.

Certified to FFP2  standards = European Certified Face Masks. This mask has also been certified to meet the requirements of KN95 standard (Chinese Certified Face Masks) in accordance with GB2626-2019.

Both standards require the face mask to pass rigorous testing to establish that the mask is capable of filtering out pollutants and microparticles that carry viruses. All of which guarantee ≥94% filtration of all particles larger than 0.3microns in size from passing through it when worn correctly with a proper fit.

The added ‘R’ (FFP2 R) on the Versarien mask stands for reusable. This means that when worn and handled with care and cleaned through the recommended care instructions, this mask is certified to be reusable with no loss of filtration.

The different names and abbreviations of N95, KN95 or FFP2 face masks all similarly provide 94% filtration or more, the only difference is the region of accreditation.

Also CE marked for additional peace of mind.

Care Instructions – How to prolong the life of your mask

This mask is classed as reusable and has been proven to retain its ability to filter and protect you the wearer for several cleaning cycles if handled with care between each use, and cleaned according to the care instructions as linked to below. No guarantee can be given as this is dependant on how the mask is handled, stored, cleaned etc. You must use your judgment on when to renew the mask to guarantee your FFP2 R benefits. This can only be done based on your inspection of the mask condition, which even after some deterioration still makes an excellent face cover. A maximum of 10 cleaning cycles can be performed on the mask. After which, the mask should be replaced or disposed of.

Fabric information

The mask is made of a mixture of fabrics as shown in the Mask Design section of our website. These fabrics are necessary in order to meet filtration standards and provide the final graphene enhanced layer to the outer layer. These fabrics do however require care by the user. If not handled with care, protective properties in the mask may deteriorate. At such times, the mask is still effective as a face covering.

Self-Seal Storage Pouch

Each mask is supplied in a packet has a self seal top edge once opened and when not in use the mask should be stored flat in this packet to prevent the mask from being repeatedly bent or rubbed against thus compromising the mask and causing avoidable deterioration. This also protects the mask from getting dirty inside your pocket or bag.

Cleaning in-between use

Care instructions on the Product Information Sheet should be followed carefully.

Our recommendation is to purchase a bottle of the Sanitiser from our SHOP to go with your masks. If this sanitiser is used on the mask instead of washing, you will not add to the deterioration of the fabric and will prolong the life of the mask and be certain that it is still providing you with the highest level of protection.

To wash the mask, please DO NOT machine wash, it must be washed very carefully by hand according to the instructions on the product information sheet.
