A protective mask is a sanitary product, generally refers to a device worn on the nose and nose to filter the air entering the nose and nose to prevent harmful gases, odors, and droplets from entering and exiting the wearer's nose and nose, and is made of gauze or paper.

Protective masks have a certain filtering effect on the air entering the lungs. When respiratory infections are prevalent, wearing masks has a very good effect when working in a polluted environment such as dust.

Protective masks can be divided into air filter masks and air supply masks .


Which side do you choose to wear?

The correct way to wear the protective mask is blue on the outside. Generally speaking, the masks of different colors have the color side out, such as blue, pink, purple, etc., with the side facing outward, and the white color side facing in, clinging to our faces. Not only that, the mask is also divided up and down, the metal strip inside is harder to touch and the upper end is close to the bridge of the nose when worn.

Generally blue medical masks are composed of a mask face and a tension band. The mask face is divided into inner, middle and outer layers, the inner layer is skin-friendly material, the middle layer is an isolation filter layer, and the outer layer is a special material antibacterial layer. This highly effective medical mask is highly hydrophobic and breathable, and has a significant filtering effect on micro-band virus aerosols or harmful dust, but cannot effectively filter PM10 and PM2.5. The overall filtering effect is good, and the materials used are non-toxic and harmless to wear and comfortable.

There are two sides of the surgical mask which are white and blue (or green). The white side contains filter. Therefore, if you have flu, it should be attached to your face so that the blue side faces out to prevent the germs from spreading outwards.


How to wear a protective mask correctly?

When wearing a protective mask, ensure that:

The coloured side of the protective mask faces outwards, with the metallic strip uppermost.

The strings or elastic bands are positioned properly to keep the mask firmly in place.

The mask covers the nose, mouth and chin.

The metallic strip moulds to the bridge of the nose.


Protective mask help limit bacterial transmission. When someone speaks, coughs or sneezes, they may infect others by releasing tiny droplets of water into the air. If someone is ill, the mask reduces the number of bacteria released by the wearer and protects others from disease. The mask also protects the wearer's nose and mouth from splashes or sprayed body fluids.Please contact Vench when you want to buy protective mask.
