Spurtex nano respirator - filtration 98.5 % FFP2 - blackCode: 2021
Product detailed description
The respirator is designed for single use, but in case of necessity the respirators can be emergency sterilized with SPURTEX® Unisanol disinfectant
The Spurtex nano respirator has a proven 98.5% capture rate for sub-micron particles including virus-sized particles. The Nano respirator is suitable for all those who need a higher degree of protection (medical personnel, chronically ill, risk groups, allergy and asthma sufferers) than a conventional respirator provides. nanofiber respirators are disposable and have a reinforced, bendable edge that easily adapts to any face shape.
SPUR nanofiber respirators are disposable. They contain a nanofiber filter and are used for professional protection against viruses, bacteria as well as smog and allergens. When filtering out the smallest particles (viruses), the nano-material used has been shown to have a filtration capacity of 98.5%, which meets FFP2 and they are fully certified according to EN 149:2001+A1:2009.
Benefits of theSpurtex nano respirator - filtration 98.5 % FFP2 - black:
- shelf life of unused FFP2 nano respirators 5 years.
- 98.5% filtration efficiency of the nanostructured membrane.
- no exhalation valve.
- simple and practical elastic band attachment.
- easy breathing due to low pressure resistance.
- mouldable noseband.
- environment friendly material.
Filtration capabilities of the European SpurTex® V100 FFP2 NR respirator
The SpurTex® PP L2 V1 material from which the SpurTex® V100 FFP2 NR respirator is made fully complies with the material requirements of the European standard EN 149:2001+A1:2009 for particulate filtering respirators and meets the FFP2 quality class.
In addition, however, SpurTex® PP L2 V1, due to the unique properties of the nanofiber filter layer, exhibits excellent capture efficiency in the ultrafine particle region (20-400 nm) and is therefore ideal for capturing a wide variety of bacteria and viruses (the SARS-CoV-2 virus has a reported realistic size of around 80 nm). These filtration properties are simultaneously achieved at very low pressure drops, which not only significantly increases breathing comfort when wearing the respirator, but also minimizes air penetration between the edge of the respirator and the face, thus reducing the risk of unwanted particulate matter or microorganisms passing through this space.
Long life of the Spurtex nano respirator - filtration 98.5 % FFP2 - black
SpurTex respirators are also unique in that they do not lose effectiveness when stored for long periods of time. This is why they have a shelf life of 5 years, which is quite unique compared to other products on the market that have a time-limited filtration efficiency
Thanks to the nanofibers, the nano-membrane used in SpurTex respirators works exclusively on the principle of mechanical capture, not electrostatic charge as is the case of conventional respirators, which of course lose their charge over time and thus also the ability to capture ultrafine particles.
How does the nanofiber membrane in the SpurTex® nano respirator 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 nanofibers by electrospinning. Thanks to this, 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 for capturing sub-micron particles (10-400 nm) and is therefore ideal for capturing a wide variety of bacteria and viruses (SARS-CoV-2 virus is reported to have a realistic size of 80-150 nm).
Does the respirator function with a beard?
To ensure a full seal, the respirator should be worn on a clean-shaven face. A beard prevents a good fit of the respirator to the face and therefore significantly reduces the effectiveness of the filter material itself.
How to use the SpurTex® V100 FFP2 NR respirator?
- Before application, check the respirator and its packaging for damage.
- Put the respirator on your face so that it covers your nose and mouth and secure it with the rubber bands.
- Shape the respirator accordingly using the mouldable metal band.
How long can I use the FFP2 disposable nano respirator?
SpurTex nanofiber respirators can be safely used for a full working shift (8 hours). However, if the respirator is used in a highly microbially active environment (bacteria/viruses), this time may be significantly reduced depending on the contamination of the working environment due to the concentration of hazardous particles on the surface of the respirator.
About the material of the European Spurtex nanorespirator
The SpurTex® V100 FFP2 NR respirator is made of SpurTex® PP material, which is a 5-layer laminate consisting of non-woven polypropylene fabrics and a specially developed active nanofiber filter layer made of PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) polymer prepared using the latest technology of polymer solution softening in an electrostatic field.
The SpurTex® V100 FFP2 NR respirator does not contain any of the highly fragile borosilicate microfibers sometimes used in standard respiratory protective devices, which have negative environmental but above all health properties. The nanofiber filter polymer layer is firmly fixed between the surface layers, which both guarantees good final mechanical properties of the final product and eliminates the possibility of damage to the very fine polymer nanofibers during handling and use.
The surface layers consisting of non-woven polypropylene fabrics in contact with the skin do not contain any significant skin irritants and have the necessary expertise.
The Spurtex nano respirator - filtration 98.5 % FFP2 - black is suitable for aircraft, buses and trains
SPUR nanofiber respirators are suitable for travel. Air condition on planes, buses and trains carries viruses easily because it does not have quality filters that can filter out viruses and bacteria.
Spurtex respirator maintenancev
The product is declared as disposable, but in case of necessity (e.g. lack of protective respiratory equipment during epidemics or pandemics) when working in a microbially highly active environment (bacteria, viruses), the respirator can be emergency sterilized with germicidal (UV-C) lamps and reused (3-5 times). The respirator can also be sterilized with Disinfectant for respirators and respirators spray 100 ml 70% ethanol.
Other methods of emergency sterilization should be discussed with the manufacturer. Steam sterilization, ironing or washing is not recommended.

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 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.
