The Saving The Mask project aims to use scientific methods solving problems in daily life, which is also the objective of S.T.E.M. education. This proposal aims at promoting the general public to use reusable masks in order to reserve critical resources - surgical masks for the healthcare professionals. Since the project organizer and sponsor are S.T.E.M. teachers, they discovered the difficulty for school in purchasing enough immunizations. A reusable and environmentally- friendly mask can assist in resolving the resource issues for nearly one million students. Therefore, we sincerely want to take care of teachers’ and students’ needs and help them pass through the epidemic.
The MASKSAVERTM production team is from Hong Kong, who has more than 20 years of experience in product development and engineering research. We are very confident in the product’s effectiveness.
The MASKSAVERTM is designed for daily use, such as school, work, indoor activities, etc. Industrial mask or mask with higher specification is recommended for special activities such as working on site, transportation, or polluted environment.
Most of the reusable masks now available in the market are usually made of cloth, unlike material used by The MASKSAVERTM. The shell of The MASKSAVERTM is made of 2 layers of food-safe soft plastic, which is harmless, biodegradable, recyclable and reusable. For more, the design of The MASKSAVERTM is easy for cleaning, simply detach the filter from the shell, clean the shell with alcohol or other detergent, and replace the old filter with a new one.
The internal mask space is sufficient and it does not stick to the mouth, it feels good and has a different experience.

About Certificate / Lab Report
The whole product (Mask with filter and earloops) has already got national certification GB2626 KN95. And the product is considering applying for international certification, such as CE, RoHS, etc.
About the Filter
The filter we are currently using meets the EU Standard EN-149 FFP Level 2 or KN95 (effective protection of oily and non-oily suspended particles up to 94% or above). It is recommended to replace the filter at least once per day. For outdoor activities or high contact rate with people, it is recommended to replace the filter every 4 hours.
The filter will have different colors according to different batches:
1) The use direction of the blue and white filter is: blue outward and white inward;
2) For the direction of the white filter, please refer to the following figure:
The assemble direction of the filter is suggested as the meltblown layer supposed to face outward. Our filter is different from those of surgical masks, while the outer layer of the surgical mask is anti-spray, the middle layer is anti-bacterial, and the inner layer absorbs moisture; but the outer and inner layers of our filter are both anti-spray layers. Even if the filter assemble direction is reversed, the filter element can still function effectively.
Instruction to clean the mask
The mask can be cleaned with cleaning spray, disinfectant, or even directly with detergent. Cleaning steps:
1. Clean before adding the filter (please note: contact with the filter element will affect performance)
2. Let the mask dry after cleaning
3. Add the filter with pliers after cleaning your hands
Reminder: If you use disinfection products for cleaning, wear the mask after the disinfection evaporates.
