Higher Breathability, More Powerful Filtration
Aclarawell masks & respirators feature the "Aclara Layer" which is made of electrospun nanofibers fused with rose bengal. The high-tech layer creates a mechanical filter barrier which physically prevents 95-99% of all particulate matter from passing through the mask.
A Closer Look
A closer look at the Aclara Layer through an electron microscope reveals how dense and effective physical filter barriers look at the submicron level.
A Mask & Respirator Comparison
|Fabric Mask w/o Filter||KN95/KF94 w/ traditional meltblown||Aclarawell w/ Aclara Layer|
|Filter Material||None||Traditional Meltblown||Nanofibers|
|Filtration Mechanism||None||Electrostatic charge combined with brownian motion||Mechanical, physical filtration using nanofibers in a web-like structure|
Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE)
|Reusability||Reusable||Single-use Only||Multi-use (3-4x longer than traditional)|
|Breathability||Depends on fabric||Higher inhalation/exhalation resistance||Ultra low inhalation/exhalation resistance|
|Low impact if manufactured sustainability||Hazardous without recycling||Reusability and Manufacturing practices reduce carbon footprint|
