Face masks made with Acteev Protect™ resist the growth of bacteria and mold fungi that cause odor, discoloration and deterioration.* Available as spunbond, meltblown or nanofiber, Acteev Protect can be layered with your existing mask design, or we can help you construct masks made completely with Acteev Protect for maximum protection.
A new level of performance
Softer and more comfortable.
Does not require electrostatic charging.
Retains efficacy if exposed to water or alcohol.
Active layers of protection
Meltblown nanofiber nonwoven
Unique polyamide nanofibers with diameters between 400nm and 600nm are 100 times smaller than the size of human hair. Acteev Protect nonwoven membrane provides better filtration efficiency with lower pressure drop than traditional polypropylene meltblown nonwovens.
Acteev Protect meltblown microfiber nonwoven
Acteev Protect offers the world’s first polyamide microfiber meltblown nonwoven with fiber diameters between 2µ and 8µ. Also provides excellent filtration coupled with deep dust-holding capacity to remove unwanted microbes and particles.
Acteev Protect spunbond nonwoven
This Acteev spunbond layer provides additional strength to protect the inner filtration layers in the filter construction, with fiber diameters in the 23µ range. The PA66-based fibers are hygroscopic — moisture is drawn in, exposing microbes to the active zinc ions.
*Acteev Protect does not protect users or others against disease-causing bacteria. These claims fall under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's treated article exemption. Regulations in other countries may differ.
