New anti-Covid mask with Silver is reusable without washing

The use of Silver-based medical products has always been prevalent in hospital settings to kill bacteria instantly. As the Covid-19 pandemic rages on and many look for practical PPE equipment, manufacturer Suprcare launches its 'Suprmask' with Pure Silver technology. In addition, it can be reused without having to be washed.

Suprmask is a reusable face mask that uses Silver to kill viruses and bacteria. While silver has been used for centuries to kill viruses and bacteria, the manufacturer implemented this technology in their face masks. Suprmask is a certified surgical face mask that works by inactivating bacteria and viruses instantly upon contact. Unlike most other PPE face masks on the market that contain only 3 layers of protection, it contains 6 layers, eliminating the need for double masking which can make it difficult to breathe. Due to its reusability, Suprmask is also designed to be eco-friendly, cutting down on the environmental impact of millions of disposable masks of which many end up in the ocean and animals’ habitats.

Company spokesperson Rudiger Mees says: “We truly believe that the use of disposable face masks can lead to a disaster for the environment. Our Suprmask forms not only a physical barrier between the user’s mouth and nose, protecting against the biological pathogens in the immediate environment, but will also form a chemical barrier. Therefore, Suprmask ensures the safety of both the user and their surroundings. Suprmask is a comfortable, certified face mask that is practical and reusable, the first of its kind. The ear loops are also covered with pure silver so that contact with contaminated hands triggers the same silver reaction which neutralizes biological contaminants, thus reducing the risk of transmission.”
