Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the use of masks has greatly increased. It can be said that masks will become a must-have product for everyone in recent years. The ability of masks to play an antibacterial effect is all due to the raw materials of masks. So why do mask raw materials play an antibacterial role? Let's take a look.

Introduction of face mask raw materials

We usually say that the mask raw materials are non-woven materials, and non-woven fabrics are non-woven fabrics compared to woven fabrics, which are composed of directional or random fibers. Specifically for masks, all the raw materials are polypropylene, and medical masks are generally multi-layered structures, generally referred to as SMS structures. 

From the perspective of mask materials, polypropylene high-melt fat non-woven fabrics have become the best choice, producing polypropylene products with a melt mass flow rate of 33-41g per minute, which meets the standard of polypropylene non-woven fabrics. From the perspective of fiber application, polypropylene fiber special material products are used in non-woven fabrics, clothing fabrics, carpet silk, medical-surgical supplies, civil hygiene products, and other fields. 

In terms of medical and health care, non-woven fabrics produced from polypropylene non-woven fabrics can be used for disposable surgical gowns, masks, drapes, etc. In the middle, a layer of filter melt-blown cloth with a filter and antibacterial effect of 99.999% is added by ultrasonic welding. The nose bridge of the non-woven mask is made of environmentally friendly all-plastic strips, which do not contain any metal and are breathable and comfortable.


Antibacterial principle of masking raw materials

The antibacterial principle of mask raw materials is as follows: masks that can play a role in virus protection and antibacterial mainly include medical-surgical masks and N95 masks. The main material that brings the virus filtration effect to these two masks is the extremely fine and electrostatic inner filter cloth-melt-blown non-woven fabric. 

The main material of melt-blown non-woven fabric is polypropylene, which is an ultra-fine electrostatic fiber cloth that can capture dust. After the droplets containing the pneumonia virus are close to the melt-blown non-woven fabric, they will be electrostatically adsorbed on the surface of the non-woven fabric and cannot pass through. 

That's how the material keeps germs out. After the dust is captured by the ultra-fine electrostatic fibers, it is extremely difficult to be detached by cleaning, and washing with water will also destroy the electrostatic dust-absorbing ability. Therefore, this mask can only be used once.


The above is an introduction to the antibacterial reasons of mask raw materials. There are many functions of masking raw materials, but there are also many precautions when using masks. Masks must be used correctly.
