In response to the current situation, we at SQUATWOLF have decided to support the community by re-tooling our manufacturing partners to address the lack of face masks available. Stocks that were already under pressure will become more scarce after WHO’s advice that everyone should wear face masks. Let the health care workers use the N95 masks and get everyone else to use the Polygiene® ViralOff® treated adjustable and comfortable face-masks.
Polygiene® ViralOff® is the technology that can help block infectious particles with a 99% efficiency.
SQUAT WOLF has an aim, a vision; we strive to provide our consumers with quality and innovative products. So, we used the Polygiene® ViralOff® technology to create a 4-layered mask that can help you stay safe from infectious particles in the air around you.
We designed this mask for daily use. Whether you’re going for a stroll outside, buying groceries or going back to the gym if they are open in your country, this mask will offer protection against viruses and bacterias.
Polygiene® ViralOff® 4-Layered Mask by SQUAT WOLF
A daily use mask with a snug and adjustable fit that helps you breathe easily. The 4 layers concept is to maximize the antimicrobial properties while making it durable.
The mask features an adjustable metal nose strip and ear straps with cinch fastening for a secure and comfortable fit.
The 4 Layers:
- The outer and inner layer are made of Polygience® ViralOff® antimicrobial performance fabric. These layers play a key role in blocking infectious particles with 99% reduction of many different viruses. Also, these layers are moisture wicking and quick dry, making sure the inside of your mask doesn’t feel wet.
- The middle layer is a non-woven fused fabric. This layer acts as an extra filter for added filtration.
- The exterior face mask has a pleated design for more surface area allowing you to expand the mask from your nose to your chin.
Any Questions About Our Polygiene® ViralOff® Face Masks?
We designed this mask keeping your health and safety in mind. The goal is to provide you with an effective yet sleek face mask that reduces the risk of catching viruses.
The technology behind it works. To put your mind at ease, here is some more information for you
ViralOff® was created by Swedish hygiene specialist Polygiene. The CEO of Polygiene says “think of it as a sanitizer for garments”. ViralOff works on any kind of garment or surface.
A garment treated by ViralOff® reduces the virus by 99% in 2 hours as per ISO18184:2019 test. It is a durable treatment that doesn’t vanish from the garments after a few washes. Our masks retain this antimicrobial property for up to 100+ washes.
ViralOff® is a biocide that is safe for human skin. Chemically, it is made of titanium dioxide and silver chloride. This is not a nanosilver.
ViralOff® kills the virus on the surface by acting on the key proteins of the virus that slows down the metabolism, preventing it from infecting other cells. ViralOff® blocks an array of viruses with a reduction rate of 99%, on a treated material, within a 2 hours timespan.
This mask retains its anti-microbial properties even after 50 washes and anti-viral properties for more than 10 washes. It is a durable, washable and reusable. These masks should be washed depending on the frequency of use.
You should clean it with a damp cloth to lightly clean the mask. However, you can also wash it in a washing machine. It retains its properties to up to 100+ washes. To keep the treatment on for a longer period of time, washing it manually is more suitable than washing it in a machine.
Yes, it doesn’t interact with the skin’s natural bacteria flora.
The ingredient chemistry is manufactured in Germany with minimal use of resources and in accordance with strict environmental regulations. Masks are made in Thailand.
When removing the mask, make sure you don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Also, wash your hands thoroughly once the mask has been removed.
Get Extra Protection With PM2.5 Filters
PM 2.5 Filters have proven to be extremely effective in blocking out hazardous nanoparticles. These are five-layered filters that can be used with Polygiene® ViralOff® Face Masks or any other cotton or cloth face mask. Lab tests have shown that a PM2.5 filter coupled with a cloth mask can reduce airborne particles by 90%.
PM2.5 filters can be used continuously for a 16 to 24 hour period and retain their filtering properties over years.
The five layers:
- There are 2 layers of melt-blown fabric. This is a non-woven fabric that blocks microscopic particles. It also has electrostatic properties which acts as a barrier against nano-particles in the air.
- There are two layers of Spun-bond fabric. This fabric helps in filtering larger particles in the air and provides structural support to the Melt-blown layers.
- There is one layer of activated charcoal. This layer traps particles through a process called absorption, it also works as deodorizer and antibacterial.
These filters are tested to KN95 standards and work effectively to filter out hazardous particles in the air. PM2.5 Filter coupled with cloth face mask have proven to be effective against nano-particles.
These filters provide the same level of protection with less resistance during inhalation as compared to the N95 and KN95 respirators. Laboratory test showed that the maximum resistance during inhalation was 25% less than a N95 respirator.
The filter size is 120x80mm which usually fits in most mask slots.
You can use PM2.5 filters with any kind of cotton or cloth mask.
These filters are not washable, however, they are durable and retain their effectiveness depending on the frequency of the usage.
You can use PM2.5 filters for a continuous period of 16 to 24 or 1 to 2 weeks of occasional use. You should change your filter when it becomes harder to breath.
This is a non-medical device.
Face coverings have no guarantee of complete virus filtration.
This is not a substitute for medical respirators like the N95 and KN95
If you have any pre-existing lung conditions like emphysema or any chronic heart disease then use this product with caution. If you notice trouble breathing while wearing this mask, stop using it.
