Face Mask | Transparent Face Mask

Masks are becoming permanent but, they do not have to be boring!!!

  • Transparent
  • Reusable
  • Replaceable PM2.5 filters
  • Sterilizable
  • Resistant to bacterial contamination
  • Made in the USA
  • Patent Pending

Background

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a great need to protect ourselves with face masks along with other methods. We saw that these masks block the person's view and appearance, hiding their expressions. So much of the way we communicate with each other is through non-verbal cues, making it crucial that we see one another clearly while interacting. Hence is our effort to bring a mask which is comfortable, stylish, transparent, reusable, washable/ sterilizable and resistant to bacterial contaminations. We will be going through the FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) process shortly.

Timeline

  • May 2020 – Concept and Design

  • October 2020 - Prototype
  • November 2020 - Testing
  • December 2020 - Full run production
  • December/January 2020 - Shipments to begin

Our mask is made with both professional and regular daily use in mind. We have designed a product that is comfortable enough to wear every day, all day, and easily sterilized for reuse.

We currently have two models available, Base Model, and Model 360.

** Patent Pending Technology **

Base Model

Our base model, the clear tilium N95 mask is stylish and made with breathable and comfortable material so the person wearing can communicate with confidence and visual expressions. This mask is for daily use and could be reused and sanitized. Most importantly, available in multiple sizes to fit all.


  • Cutting edge technology; activated carbon, aerospace grade hepa, UVC power technology filter
  • Transparency; improves self-esteem and social communications
  • Facial Recognition; enables you to utilize facial recognition software
  • Five Layer Filter Protection; remove 95% of .25 + micron-particles
  • Superior Protection; protect your mouth from dust, germs, allergens, smoke, pollution etc.
  • Easily Replaceable filters

  • Price: $60 (includes 5 replaceable filters)

Model 360

Model 360 offers all of the above, plus the added feature of a micro-fan with rechargeable batteries. The objective of the model 360 is to circulate oxygen in to the face to help wearers feel as if they are breathing in fresh air. Without circulating air, prolonged mask use of any kind can reduce blood oxygenation by 20% causing headaches, carbon dioxide accumulation and hypoxia, and skin issues. Model 360 increases wearability and removes any feelings of suffocation due to prolonged use by allowing the user to have a continuous flow of air circulating.

N-95 Respirators

There are various types of masks out there. During the COVID19 outbreak, N95 masks, once labeled as strictly professional, have quickly become common. N95 masks are a lot more reliable compared to the typical surgical masks or handmade face masks. Compared to the regular surgical masks, specialized N-95 respirators are tight-fitting, reliable, and aren’t prone to leakage. Therefore, if approached wisely, N-95 filters work very well when it comes to protecting people from the new deadly disease.

The similarities among surgical masks and surgical N-95s are:

  • They are tested for fluid resistance, filtration efficiency (particulate filtration efficiency and bacterial filtration efficiency), flammability and biocompatibility.
  • They should not be shared or reused.

N-95 respirators are examples of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer from airborne particles and from liquid contaminating the face. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also regulate N-95 respirators.

It is important to recognize that the optimal way to prevent airborne transmission is to use a combination of interventions from across the hierarchy of controls, not just Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) alone.

N

This is a Respirator Rating Letter Class. It stands for “Non-Oil” meaning that if no oil-based particulates are present, then you can use the mask in the work environment. Other masks ratings are R (resistant to oil for 8 hours) and P (oil proof).

95

Masks ending in a 95, have a 95 percent efficiency. Masks ending in a 99 have a 99 percent efficiency. Masks ending in 100 are 99.97 percent efficient and that is the same as a HEPA quality filter.

.25 micron

The masks filter out contaminants like dust, mists and fumes. The minimum size of .25 micron of particulates and large droplets won’t pass through the barrier, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.)

Material

The filtration material on the mask is an electrostatic non-woven polypropylene fiber.

N-95 General Respirator Precautions

  • People with chronic respiratory, cardiac, or other medical conditions that make breathing difficult should check with their health care provider before using an N-95 respirator because the N-95 respirator can make it more difficult for the wearer to breathe.
  • Replace filter frequently for best results.
  • If your respirator is damaged or soiled, or if breathing becomes difficult, you should remove the respirator, discard it properly, and replace it with a new one. To safely discard your N-95 respirator, place it in a plastic bag and put it in the trash. Wash your hands after handling the used respirator.
  • N-95 respirators are not designed for children or people with facial hair. Because a proper fit cannot be achieved on children and people with facial hair, the N-95 respirator may not provide full protection.

N-95 How to Wear an N95 Mask Properly?

  1. Sanitize your hands and put on your N95 respirator mask.
  2. Ensure that your clean N95 mask doesn't have any defects such as tears. Ensure, the filters are clean (replace filters as required)
  3. Hold the N-95 respirator face mask in your palm with the mouthpiece at fingertips, while hanging the head straps loosely.
  4. Position your reusable N-95 mask below your chin with the mouthpiece up.
  5. While holding the N-95 mask in place, pull the top strap behind your head and leave it to rest high on the back of your head.
  6. Position the bottom strap around the back of your neck, below your ears.
  7. Untwist the straps of your washable N-95 mask.
  8. Position both your palms over the respirator to check if it fits your face right.
  9. After you put on the mask, don’t forget to sanitize your hands again.

N-95 Respirators in Industrial and Health Care Settings

Most N-95 respirators are manufactured for use in construction and other industrial type jobs that expose workers to dust and small particles. They are regulated by the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

However, some N-95 respirators are intended for use in a health care setting. Specifically, single-use, disposable respiratory protective devices used and worn by health care personnel during procedures to protect both the patient and health care personnel from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids, and particulate material. These surgical N-95 respirators are class II devices regulated by the FDA, under 21 CFR 878.4040, and CDC NIOSH under 42 CFR Part 84.

N-95s respirators regulated under product code MSH are class II medical devices exempt from 510(k) premarket notification, unless:

  • The respirator is intended to prevent specific diseases or infections, or
  • The respirator is labeled or otherwise represented as filtering surgical smoke or plumes, filtering specific amounts of viruses or bacteria, reducing the amount of and/or killing viruses, bacteria, or fungi, or affecting allergenicity, or
  • The respirator contains coating technologies unrelated to filtration (e.g., to reduce and or kill microorganisms).
