Wholesale Orders 50 Piece/Box Surgical Mask 3-Ply Surgical Masks
Our 3-Ply medical grade face masks are CE certified and tested for water seepage, quality, and durability. Each box includes 50 pieces of disposable masks made from non-woven, hypoallergenic, breathable material.
Each mask features two earloop bands to comfortably fit the wearer. Surgical grade face masks are the minimum standard of facial protection you should be wearing to stop airborne viruses, pathogens and bacteria from spreading when in public.
Our special 3 ply non-woven design also provides some protection against dust, automobile exhaust, pollen, pathogens etc. The elastic ear-loop fits snugly, is easy to wear and puts no pressure on the ears. This sort of mask is perfect for medical use, nail salons, schools, supermarkets or customer service staff or any other areas where protection might be required.

History Of Surgical Face Masks
In 1906, researchers started evaluating the efficacy of mask-wearing to protect from tuberculosis-infected sputum droplets and other respiratory diseases such as diphtheria and pneumonia.
The global Influenza virus outbreak of 1919 led to the implementation of compulsory mask-wearing to reduce droplet-borne viral transmission. These, however, failed to protect both healthcare workers and patients due to the poor filtering capability, breathing difficulty and air leakage around the mask edges (1). Surgical masks are class I medical devices covering the mouth, nose and chin to provide a physical barrier preventing the passage of infective agents (2). They were first introduced to protect surgical patients from post-operatory wound infections as well as to protect surgeons from potentially infected blood splashes (4).
Surgical masks are required to undergo strict quality control and performance testing before they can be certified by either the European Union (CE certified) or by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Based on the test results for the six following criteria: particulate filtration efficiency (PFE), bacterial filtration efficiency (BPE), breathability (delta P), splash resistance (synthetic blood), microbial cleaning and biocompatibility masks are assigned to one of four classes (2, 8). Other critical elements to ensure adequate protection of the environment from the respiratory droplets of the wearer are facial fit and low air resistance (3). Improper manufacturing can cause insufficient tension on the elastic strings leading to “venting” or air leakage from the sides (4) while high airflow resistance causes breathing difficulties and may result in lower wearing compliance (6). Lastly, masks produced with double or triple filter layers and smaller pore size are significantly more efficient at blocking aerosols and fine particles (5, 6).
Why are high filtration and low resistance surgical masks the preferred medical choice?
In addition to providing protection during surgical procedures to both patients and the operating team, the use of surgical masks in community settings by healthy people is beneficial to avoid pathogen transmission in individuals suffering from asymptomatic infections. Surgical masks are twice as efficient at protecting the general public and health care workers compared to “homemade” or simple tea cloth masks both during short and longer periods of use. Children may be less protected due to looser facial fit of the mask (2).
Moreover, growing evidence of COVID-19 virus aerosolisation, with a higher incidence in medical settings, suggests the need for more continuous wearing of protective equipment by healthcare personnel in high-risk wards (7). Single-use masks significantly decrease the possibility of cross-contamination though attention should be paid when disposing of the mask to not grab it from the filter section but rather from the handling elastic loops as this could cause contamination of the wearer’s hands (4). Strict adherence to hand hygiene and aseptic practices (within medical settings) are necessary to ensure the highest protection among the public and health care providers (7).
3-Ply surgical masks have a three-layer filtration, namely a non-woven layer ensuring good air permeability, an activated carbon adsorption layer responsible for fine particle filtration and a bacterial filter which also enhances air purification.
These combined to the low airflow resistance and hypoallergenic comfortable design make them a superior surgical mask choice.
