Craft Cadence has created the ultimate air pollution face mask that combines the best antiviral and anti-odor technologies with the latest nanofibre filtration technology that will protect you from pollution, pollen, bacteria, smoke and viruses.    

Protection from pollutants and viruses

  • Swedish Polygiene ViralOff® technology that reduces viruses by 99% within 2 hours  (including SARS-CoV-2).  
  • Swedish Polygiene Stays Fresh® technology that reduces odor-causing bacteria by 99%
  • Internal nanofibre layer certified to filter 99% of particles at 0.3 microns to EN 149:2001 FFP3, equivalent to N99 rating.  Nanofibres filters are superior to melt-blown filters in breathability, washability, reusability and filtration.  Overall 4 layer construction for maximum protection, no need for double masking.  

Comfort

  • Unique shape and design with long robust metal nose wire to stop glasses fogging up, and chin wrap for a secure seal around the bottom of the face
  • Comfortable ear loops with adjusters, along with head straps for additional comfort (included)
  • Outer and inner fabrics designed for sportswear and hiking, comfortable to the skin

Eco-friendly and reusable

  • Truly reusable as nanofibre filter has been proven to retain filtration efficiency even after washing, unlike meltblown filters
  • Outer and inner layers made from recycled polyester, minimising energy, water and carbon emissions
  • Pocket for additional (optional) removable filter.  Continue using the mask even after the nanofibre filter has reached its useful life span

Value and practicality

  • 2 masks and 2 head straps included per pack, allowing you to alternate masks while one is being dried.

Description

Craft Cadence Nanofibre Mask is the first mask in the world to combine Polygiene’s  ViralOff® and Stays Fresh® technologies with a sewn in nanofibre filter that is certified to filter out 99% of particles at 0.3 microns (EN 149:2001 FFP3, equivalent to N99 rating)  

Antiviral and Anti-odor technology

The outer layer of the mask is water repellent and treated with Polygiene ViralOff®. This is certified to reduce 99% of viruses (like hepatitus, Influenza, Corona) and other bacteria.  

ViralOff® treatment is a Swedish technology from Polygiene. Craft Cadence is entitled to use the ViralOff mark as we have licensed the technology. Polygiene has tested the active ingredient against Influenza A, BirdFlu, Norovirus and Corona (SARS) over the years, and in all cases, have achieved 99% levels of virus reduction.  Recently, it has been tested and proven to be effective against SARS-CoV-2.

For more details about ViralOff®, see here.  

 

 

The inner layers of the mask that touches your skin are treated with Polygiene Biostatic Stays Fresh® technology.  This is certified antibacterial by IMSL (Industrial Microbiological Serives Ltd) to reduce 99% of odor causing bacteria.

Stays Fresh® applies a natural silver salt (AgCl, silver chloride) treatment that stops and breaks down odor-causing bacteria and fungi that builds up in the material.  This means less need for washing, reducing water, energy and carbon emissions.  

For more details about Stays Fresh®, see here.  

 

 

 

Filtration technology

The inner layer of the mask is a sewn in nanofibre filter which has been certified by Microtest International (MTI) Technology Laboratory to filter out 99% (99.41%) of particles at 0.3 microns in accordance with EN 149:2001 FFP3 (for EU), equivalent to a NIOSH N99 rating (for North America).  

The laboratory test results are available upon request.  

An internal wash test of the filter material showed a reduction of filtration efficiency by 0.2% after 5 washes. 

Nanofibre filters have been found to be superior to melt blown filters at retaining filtration efficiency.  In a study by Ullah et al, researchers applied an ethanol solution to sterilise masks with nanofibre and melt-blown filters.  The nanofibre filter was able to retain much of its filtration efficiency at 98% even after 10 rounds of spraying cycles using an ethanol solution.  By contrast, the melt-blown fabric began at a higher filtration efficacy rate of 99%, but that dropped to 62% after 10 spraying cycles.

Fit and comfort

Craft Cadence Nanofibre Mask has been thoughtfully designed to maximise fit, breathability and comfort, while minimising leakage:

  • A wider design than most masks, allowing the mask to fit the contours of the users face and to minimise leakage on the sides
  • A chin wrap for a secure and comfortable fit around the bottom of the user’s face, again minimising leakage through the bottom.  No more mask slipping.
  • A long metal nose wire to stop glasses fogging up
  • An adjustable earloop and soft earloop material for comfort around the user’s ears
  • To further remove strain around the user’s ears, a head strap is included which can position the tension to the back of the user’s head

Frequently asked questions

Will the size fit me?

The mask comes in three size that will fit the vast majority of all adults (women and men).  Follow our size guide to find the best fit for you.  

How often should I wash the mask? 

Frequency of washing depends on usage length and use case.  If you are mainly using it outside then it can be washed once a week.  It is recommended to have at least 2 masks to alternate between, to allow the masks to be properly sanitised between uses.   

How do I wash the mask?

Please wash the mask in warm water at 60 degrees by hand, for at least 5 minutes.  Please take care not to apply too much pressure to the nose wire or it will loosen up more easily.  You may also let it soak in the warm water for an additional 5 minutes, then hang to dry.  Please do not put it in the washing machine.  

How long does the mask last for?

The mask can be washed up to 30 times and the filter can last up to 300 hours.  Typically, this level of filtration will last 3-6 months depending on environment and intensity of use.  Thereafter, you can continue to use the mask by inserting removable nanofibre filters. However, please note that these may not be as effective as the original sewn in filters, which are more tightly sealed to the user’s face compared to removable filters.   

Will viruses still be able to pass through the 4 layers of the mask?

No mask will provide 100% protection and this mask is not medical grade and not intended as replacements for the N99 respiratory masks.

The outer layer will help to capture respiratory droplets and there is additional protection via the nanofibre filter. What cannot be guaranteed are the tiny airborne particles that are in the air in poorly ventilated indoor scenarios where there is a lot of shouting, singing, etc. This is an area of ongoing research where the WHO is still hesitant to provide official guidance even on the transmissibility of the virus. So that situation should be avoided altogether if the aim is to minimise risk of infection – such as going to concerts, singing classes, indoor religious gatherings, or any large indoor social situations.

DISCLAIMER: This mask is not a certified medical mask and should not be used as a substitute or as replacements of N99 respirator masks.  Like all masks it provides a degree of protection against viruses such as COVID-19 but no mask can guarantee that an individual is not infected.
