Face masks prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, such as influenza, and also help protect against pollutants and dust particles in the air. Wearing a face mask can significantly reduce the risk of contracting or spreading airborne viral infections, as they filter out droplets containing virus particles when someone talks, coughs or sneezes. By wearing a face mask, you are helping to protect yourself and others from potential exposure to dangerous virus particles.

Face Mask meltblown media is a type of nonwoven fabric composed of ultra-fine fibres used to make protective face masks. The material possesses properties that make it ideal for use in face masks, such as its breathability, lightness and filtration capability. GESSNER's NeenahGuard™ & Delpore™ media are able to filter out particles as small as 0.3 microns due to its intricate network of fibre layers. This makes it ideal for trapping droplets from coughs or sneezes, thus providing an effective barrier against the transmission of potentially harmful viruses and bacteria. 



Achieving Peak Filtration Efficiency with GESSNER's Electrostatically Charged Meltblown Media

GESSNER's electrostatically charged meltblown media sets a new benchmark in filtration efficiency, with the capability to reach efficiencies of up to 99.95%. Our comprehensive portfolio encompasses a wide range from FFP1 to FFP3, adhering to EN149 standards, and we also fulfill NIOSH 95 and 99 requirements.

One of our key strengths lies in our highly flexible media composition. We're committed to offering the best solution tailored to your process, whether you're seeking pleatable or non-pleatable media.

Our NeenahGuard™ & Delpore™ media stand out for their excellent breathability, making them an ideal choice for medical applications. While a single layer of our Meltblown media is sufficient to achieve high filtration efficiency, we also provide options for a composite with spunbond. This adaptability allows us to cater to diverse filtration needs while maintaining top-tier performance.
