The difference between non-woven, cotton and polyester.
In our range of mouth masks you will see different substances recur. We are happy to give you some extra information to help you find your way around this. This way you also understand why sometimes 2 layers and sometimes 3 layers are used to manufacture a mouth mask.
A non-woven mask can be used only once. You can throw it away afterwards. Non-woven is an imitation fabric made of polypropylene in which synthetic fibers are brought together into a whole. No yarn is used and it is not knitted. It is a strong, durable and light material. Non-woven material itself acts as a filter, so that no extra filter is required for this mouth mask.
A cotton mask can be reused by washing it at 60 ° and allowing it to dry completely. Cotton is made from natural fibers of the cotton plant. It is an air-permeable textile, so it is recommended to use a mouth mask made of cotton with an extra filter (this can consist of polyester or non-woven material).
Polyester is a synthetic textile made from plastic granules. It is a smooth, light and strong material. You can reuse mouth masks made of polyester by washing at 60 ° and allowing it to dry completely. Polyester itself acts as a filter for the mouth mask, so no extra filter is needed when using it.
