Filti, an air filtration startup that produces nanofiber materials for face masks and HVAC filters, officially announced the launch of its new NF95 Respirator.
The pre-certified NF95 Respirators are constructed using the company's state-of-the-art nanofiber technology and is proven to filter 95% of aerosolized, airborne particles - like COVID-19 - moving through the material. Unlike a traditional N95 mask, the nanofiber material mechanically filters out pollutants as opposed to electrostatically filtering them.
Expected approvals and standards for this product include:
- Expected - NIOSH approved N95 respirator
- Expected - Meets NIOSH 42 CFR 84 N95 requirements for a minimum
95% filtration efficiency against solid and liquid aerosols that do not contain oil
- NIOSH Approval Number - TBA
- Expected BFE and PFE (third-party testing results)
- Expected level 3 blood splatter
"We designed these respirators to safeguard our customers and their families from harmful airborne particles including bacteria and viruses," said Dakota Hendrickson, co-founder of Filti. "With limited, high-quality and cost-effective respirator options on the market, we knew we could use our technology to provide an excellent, low-cost option for American households. All 100% Made in the USA."
Engineered for extreme comfort, with enhanced sealing capabilities and exceptional breathability, the Filti NF95 respirator is constructed with a spunbond, nonwoven and nanofiber composite media. During the soft launch phase, the company sold nearly 40,000 respirators. Sold in packs of 20 or 50, Filti's NF95 Respirators are currently available for purchase at: https://filti.com/product/nf95-respirator/
