3-ply surgical mask has become the most sought-after commodity during the
Covid-19 pandemic, with many buying what they can get their hands on. However,
the quality of different brands may vary wildly, though the masks may look the same.
you tell if a surgical mask is real or fake? Check it out below!
Tips To Test
1. Visual Test
cut open your mask, you should see a very obvious 3-layers. The 3 layers would
typically consist of an outer hydrophobic non-woven layer (translucent), middle
melt-blown layer (white), and an inner soft absorbent non-woven layer (green,
blue, or white).
don’t have those 3 layers, then it is not a 3-ply mask.
middle layer of a surgical mask is a melt-blown fabric, not made with paper,
therefore, if you light it with a flame, it will not burn like paper. Instead,
it melts without flame.
your mask catches fire, then it is not a 3-ply mask.
outer-most layer is designed to be waterproof. Pour some water onto the outer
layer and you should be able to see that the mask repels water properly.
other side gets damp, it is not a 3-ply mask.
Electrostatic Adsorption Test
is an electrostatic effect in the melt-blown layer. If you tear the melt-blown
layer into strips, you will feel the electrostatic adsorption effect, and you
can also adsorb the melt-blown layer on stainless steel due to its large amount
of electric charge.
your mask does not electrostatically adsorb any strips, it is not a 3-ply mask.
middle layer, which is used to trap bacteria from entering or exiting the mask,
should not be too porous. This will ensure the mask can catch the percentage of
bacteria it’s supposed to.
your mask’s middle layer is too porous, it is not a 3-ply mask.
6. Breath Test
surgical mask is designed with a middle melt-blown layer that is critical as a
filter to contain droplets by electrostatically adsorbing them on the surface
hence it cannot infiltrate the mask; while the inner layer is intended to
absorb water, sweat and spit. This will ensure extinguishing fire with your
breath is highly impossible.
can extinguish a fire easily with your breath while wearing the mask, it is not
a 3-ply mask.
innermost layer is designed to absorb moisture such as saliva, mucus and sneeze
droplets. This ensures when a user sneezes, the mask will be able to contain
the droplets, which will not remain smeared on the wearer’s face.
your mask’s inner layer is not water-absorbent, it is not a proper 3-ply mask.
Be Cautious of these Brands Listed
the high demand for face masks, consumers need to be leery of counterfeit face
masks by illegitimate manufacturers. Carry out the tests above to identify if
it is fake or real.
The difference of 3-ply surgical mask to fashion masks or ordinary
to note, fashion masks, ordinary disposable dust masks or 2-ply hygiene masks
will not protect you from the virus.
Fashion masks / dust
from washable cotton or sponge that is reusable. They are mainly designed to
protect against air pollution or pollen allergy, but useless against viruses
Ordinary 2-ply hygiene mask
from fabric or non-woven material which is also disposable but lacks a
melt-blown filter layer, so these face masks are useless against haze, viruses,
Know your difference before placing an order
biggest difference between a 3-ply surgical mask and an ordinary face mask is
the melt-blown layer in a surgical mask.
melt-blown layer in a 3-ply surgical mask is essentially a filter, the droplets
containing viruses will be electrostatic-ally adsorbed on the surface and cannot
infiltrate the mask. If your mask is properly fitted, the surgical mask will
create a basic barrier between your mouth and nose and the viruses.
