The CARE3D Mask is a 3D-printed, re-usable protective mask with removable (single use) filter material. The composite mask consists of
- an impermeable body through which, if in good condition and fitted tightly to the user’s face, no external aerosol and/or particles can be transported and
- a filter segment through which all the inhaled and exhaled breath flows when the mask is fitted properly to the user’s face.
The CARE3D Mask is designed to ensure that no voids exist anywhere on or within the printed product that could be channels for aerosol/virus ingress. This is accomplished by fusing the inner and outer walls together and by using an appropriate layer height to prevent any horizontal voids from being created between layers. Each mask is carefully inspected, and a test is done to confirm that the mask is airtight. The filter is readily replaceable without use of special tools and is designed to reduce the risk of incorrect assembly.
Each Set comes with
- Filter Clamp
- Filter Material (melt-blown polypropelene – MBPP) – 5 sheets
