3-ply face masks made with Folia's silverized nonwoven outer coverstock are sold as non-filtering masks under the non-surgical FDA Emergency Use Authorization. To meet our own high standards, we tested silverized 3-ply masks to a variety of United States ASTM standards. Results are available upon request.
Our silver antimicrobial preservative is a low dose that limits microbial growth in order to keep the mask clean. It is not intended to offer antimicrobial or protection to the wearer, nor is it intended to reduce or prevent infection. Regulatory disclaimer details can be found here.
