Most of us are aware of the smog that engulfed Delhi region post Diwali. The air quality seen in DelhiNCR between 1 to 9 November 2016 was the worst visualization of smog in the region and is termed as Great Smog of Delhi.
On Nov 7th, 2016 the PM 2.5 levels shot up to 999, while recommended is 60 micrograms. At the same time PM 10 shot to 999, instead of the recommended limit of 100. These levels were more than 10 times the prescribed levels in the air. The pollution led to reduction in visibility to about 200 meters around Nov 7th, 2016.
The primary effects seen due to air pollution were breathlessness, chest constriction, irritation in eyes, asthma, allergy. To take protective approach towards air pollution one needs an air purification system wherever he goes. For indoors the problem can be solved by air purifiers. But outdoors the problem is worse due to continuous movement, and changing environment. In such case one needs a personal filtration unit, moving with us and continuously purifying the air we breathe.
This is just what Atlanta Healthcare N99 Cambridge masks are designed to do. Atlanta Healthcare in collaboration with Cambridge masks offers air pollution masks which uses military grade technology to filter air pollutants and at the same time make the product user friendly. This Mask gives protection against dust pollution up to the level of 0.3 micron, gas pollution, nearly 100% of viruses and bacteria. These N99 Anti-Pollution Masks by Atlanta Healthcare come with 3 layers of protection –
- The Primary Filter Layer – designed to filter out larger particles such as dust and PM10.
- The Three-Ply Micro Particulate Layer – designed to block particulate pollution such as PM2.5. It is tested to filter particles as small as PM0.3. The textile is a three-ply non-woven melt-blow polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer used in a range of applications.
- The Military Grade Carbon Layer – made from a 100% pure activated carbon cloth, which was originally invented by the UK Ministry of Defence and comprises of a series of activated carbon filaments, each about 2,000 nanometres in diameter. The pores in each filament are 25 times smaller than those in standard carbon materials, and therefore more powerful. This means that bacteria and viruses are drawn to the surface from further away.
The Atlanta Healthcare Cambridge air pollution masks provide 99.77% protection against bacteria, 99.6% protection against viruses
