Kimtech Pure M3 Sterile Pouch Facemask Designed for Maximum Bacterial and Particle Filtration
ROSWELL, Ga. - Kimberly-Clark Professional announces the latest in contamination control for sterile environments: the Kimtech Pure M3 Sterile Pouch Facemask. The facemask is recommended for use in ISO Class 5 or higher cleanrooms.
The mask's pouch design and large breathing chamber reduce the chance for particle build-up. Its consistently tight seal helps to reduce goggle fogging and the risk of escaping particles.
"A protective, comfortable facemask means better performance," explains Damon Larkin, category manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional. "And better performance means better protection, which is important in sterile environments that require constant monitoring to prevent contamination."
The mask's two knitted headbands are comfortable and help to hold the mask in place while it's being worn. Additional comfort is provided by the mask's fabric inner facing.
Made of apertured, low-lint polyethylene film for protection against contamination, the Kimtech Pure M3 Sterile Pouch Facemask contains no natural rubber latex, thus reducing the risk of allergic reactions. The masks are individually packaged and triple-bagged for extra protection. They are gamma irradiated with a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-6. Certificates of Irradiation are available online at www.kimtech.com/certificates.
