Using a triple sandwich layer, nanofibre combination, the K-Filters have been designed as a re-usable, world class filter that will protect you and those around you.
Layer 1: Nanofibres capture viruses, bacteria and pollutants via electrostatic attraction.
Layer 2: Activated carbon layer for environmental pollutants.
Layer 3: Nanofibres capture viruses, bacteria and pollutants via electrostatic attraction.
The filters have been independently tested to ASTM F2100, ASTM FT101 and EN 1486 standards, certifying the 99.6% filtration rating*. The K-Filter offer its protection for 200 hours and for particles as small as 0.03 microns. The effectiveness of the filtration level is due to this microscopic level of protection offered by the electrospun nanofibres, that ionically attract the particles before trapping them within the filter layers. To contextualise this, the Covid-19 virus has a particle micron size of 0.06-0.5 and bacteria has a particle size of 0.3 microns. Healthcare workers on the front line have so far been using N95 rated masks that have a particulate protection size of 0.3 microns; so the wearer can feel confident in their protection when using the K-Filter.
The nanofibres within the K-Filter are made from biocompatible hydrophobic material which are elastic and electrostatic, meaning they are highly breathable, flexible and will not become wet with water vapour from breathing. This also reduces the carbon dioxide re-breathing occurrence that is a problem among even medical grade respirators.
This is why the KYMIRA K-Filter has proven itself to be one of the most effective air filters in the world.
