Nano filters for masks – Spurtex - 10 x 15 | 10 pcsCode: 1628
Product detailed description
The extremely dense nanofiber membrane in the nano filter can capture the most common biological threats known to human health, such as viruses, dust, allergens and smog. The disposable filters are made of a 3-layer high-efficiency filter material.
Benefits of Nano filters for masks – Spurtex:
- an economical option
- tested effective capture
- nanofiber membrane
- suitable for all types of masks with a pocket size of 10 x 15 cm
Disadvantages of Nano filters for masks – Spurtex:
- The overall filtering capacity is always dependent on the tightness of the mask used.
- They must be changed after about 8 hours.
How does the nanofiber membrane in the SpurTex® nano filter work?
The nanofiber is 1000 times thinner than a human hair and is invisible to the naked eye. In the European, we are experts in nanofibers and were the first in the world to develop a device for the industrial production of nanofibers in 2004 in Liberec. Most manufacturers today use meltblown technology to produce nanofibers, but the European company SPUR produces them by electrospinning, thanks to which they are able to produce fibers much thinner and achieve the highest filtration capabilities.
The nanofibers are spun into a nanofiber membrane, which can be imagined as a very dense net or filter. The holes in this filter are so small that an air molecule can pass through, but a bacteria, virus or allergen cannot. The nanofiber membrane has been tested to capture sub-micron particles (10-400 nm) and is therefore ideal for capturing a wide variety of bacteria and viruses (the SARS-CoV-2 virus is reported to have a realistic size of 80-150 nm).
How long can I use one nano filter?
The filter's effectiveness decreases with wear time, providing optimal protection for up to 8 hours. The wear of the filter depends on the intensity of breathing, for example during sports or high-intensity activities we recommend changing it after 2 hours.
How do I know if the filter in the mask is ineffective?
As soon as you feel that it is harder to breathe in your filter mask, it is a sign that the filter is clogged. At that point, we recommend replacing the filter.

About the material
The material SpurTex® VS L2 V1, from which the nano filter is made, fully complies with the material requirements of the European standard EN 149:2001+A1:2009 for particulate filter bags and meets the quality class FFP2. However, due to the unique properties of the nanofiber filter layer, the SpurTex® VS L2 V1 material also exhibits excellent capture efficiency in the ultrafine particle range (10-400 nm) and is therefore ideal for the capture of a wide variety of bacteria and viruses (the SARS-CoV-2 virus has a reported realistic size of 80-150 nm).

Protects the user from the environment
The extremely dense nanofiber membrane captures the most common biological threats to human health currently known, such as viruses, dust, allergens and smog. The disposable filter is made of the unique nanostructured filter material SpurTex® VS and provides effective active respiratory protection, especially in the area of trapping ultra-fine particles between 10 and 400 nm in size (i.e. bacteria and viruses).
SPUR antiviral nanofiber masks work on the principle of a mechanical barrier. No chemicals are used.
The seller accepts no liability, either direct or indirect, for damages (including loss of profit or loss of reputation) caused by improper application or use of the material.
The nano filter is made of SpurTex® VS material, which is a trilaminate consisting of viscose-based non-woven fabrics with grammages from 60 to 90 g.m-2 on the surface and a specially developed active nanofiber filter layer made of PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) polymer prepared using the latest unique technology of softening the polymer solution in an electrostatic field.
The Zlín-based nanotechnology company SPUR has been operating on the market since 1992, when it was mainly engaged in the production of plastic products. After several years of intensive research in the field of nanotechnology, we presented our results to the public for the first time at the NANOTECH 2012 trade fair in Japan.During the presentation, the emphasis was on the technological equipment we have developed - i.e. the production line for the preparation of nanofibers SPIN Line. We also presented the SpurTex nanostructured filter materials. SPUR is a member of the European Nanotechnology Industries Association and a partner in the European is Nano education project.
For one-time use, a price below 10 CZK would be suitable.

The nanotechnology company Spur from Zlín has been operating on the market since 1992, when it mainly dealt with the production of plastic products. After several years of intensive research in the field of nanotechnology, she presented the results to the public at the NANOTECH 2012 fair in Japan.
Since 2018, SPUR has continued research and testing within the Center for Polymer Systems at UTB, where it continues to develop and produce its own nanofibers. Serial production of the nanomaterial began in March 2020 with significant advisory and consulting support from the Ministry of Industry and Trade and CzechInvest.
The production program of protective equipment includes, in addition to certified respirators and nanofiber masks produced on machines, also special sewn NANO masks SpurTex for adults and children, which are 97% BIO-based, i.e. made of natural material - viscose. They are breathable, ensure a comfortable and at the same time tight fit to the face and provide maximum protection against viruses and bacteria.
We also presented filter materials with SpurTex nanostructures. Spur is a member of the Nanotechnology Industry Association of the Czech Republic and part of the popularization project Czechia is nano.
About nano respirators
SPUR a.s. is a company based in Zlín, which in 2012 developed its own line for the production of nanofibers SPIN Line and since then has been developing filtration nanomaterials of the Spurtex series. In February 2020, it brought to the market a new type of nanomembrane, Spurtex VS, which meets the standards for the production of medical masks functional for the capture of coronavirus.
Spurtex VS material captures 70 to 95% of particles and does so at low pressure resistance (45 to 85 hPa), which makes end products highly breathable. SPUR respirators and masks meet FFP2 capturing requirements.
SPUR nanofiber masks are disposable and serve as professional protection against viruses, bacteria, smog and allergens.
The material SpurTex® VS L2 V1, from which the nano mask is made, fully complies with the material requirements of the European standard EN 149:2001+A1:2009 for filtering half-masks against particles and meets the quality class FFP2. However, thanks to the unique properties of the nanofiber filter layer, the SpurTex® VS L2 V1 material also exhibits excellent capture efficiency in the ultrafine particle range (10-400 nm) and is therefore ideal for the capture of a wide variety of bacteria and viruses (the SARS-CoV-2 virus has a reported realistic size of 80-150 nm).
SPUR offers masks for children and masks for adults.
SPUR respirators have a proven capture of 98.5% and meet quality class FFP2 and FFP3 (the latter requires capture of at least 94%). They are cheap, light and very breathable. Respirators are valveless and suitable for professional and home use.
Filters for masks SPUR
SPUR also produces disposable filters for cotton masks from the same material.
