What Are the Levels of Surgical Masks?

The Dynarex process and isolation face masks are pleated face masks with ear loops and a glass-free filter. With the product number 2201; while “surgical masks” are under product numbers 2205 and 2206. The masks are disposable masks and are designed to protect healthcare professionals and patients from airborne particles.

Where are Dynarex surgical masks manufactured?

The masks have a flexible nosepiece that can be bent and adjusted to fit your nose to ensure a correct and comfortable fit, reducing the effect of the mask slipping off your face. Accidents happen and prevention is always available. You have the option of choosing a face mask that covers your nose and mouth area, or a mask with a face shield that also protects your eyes from splashes. The liquid-resistant masks are made of durable paper that can get wet. This should not be used as the mask is immersed in water.

What is a type 3 surgical mask?

Type IIR face masks contain a splash-proof layer to protect against blood and other body fluids. The lower chin extension is particularly important for masks that are not sealed, such as the level 3 surgical mask and a fabric mask with a PM2.5 filter. Just like the level 3 surgical masks, which score high in material filtration, you’ll need to test for fit and leak to see if the mask actually works. Take the time to find one that’s right for your application to ensure you get the safest and most relevant protection.

After experiencing a variety of shortages, crises, and inefficiencies in the status quo of the procurement and distribution industry, I undertook the responsibility of building an interface for large organizations to abstract away uncertainty throughout their supply chain under most conditions.

We are focused on building a framework from which our teams of professionals on the ground can provide a new generation of procurement support and professional services for supply chain critical organizations around the nation.

We understand that the marketing process of critical supplies is a matter of national security and public safety. In this, we found our passion and mission: developing technologies, supplier networks, and platforms for the organizations that need it most.
