In order to keep up with demand from our distributors for disposable masks and to contribute to our local economy, we have purchased a state-of-the-art surgical face mask machine.

We have been busy here at the Red Deer facility rearranging our warehouse to accommodate the large machine which has the capability to produce thousands of ASTM Level 2 and Level 3 Disposable Face masks per day.

The 3-Ply disposable masks that we will be manufacturing will contain a protective layer that will be tested based on ASTM F2100 standards which covers the performance requirements for materials used to produce medical facemasks used in providing healthcare such as surgical services and patient care.  These masks are made from a 3 layer skin-friendly, non-woven material and have Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) & Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE) >98%.
