Product detailed description
Nanorespirator SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 NR
The SPURTEX® nano respirator has a proven 99.4% capture rate for submicron particles including virus-sized particles. The nano respirator is suitable for anyone who needs the highest level of protection. nanofiber respirators are disposable without an exhalation valve and have a reinforced, flexible brim that easily adapts to any face shape. It is the so-called fit factor that is central to the effectiveness of the protective equipment.
SPURTEX® nanofiber respirators are disposable, contain a nanofiber filter and are used for professional protection against viruses, bacteria as well as smog and allergens. When filtering the smallest particles (viruses), the nano material has been proven to have a filtration capacity of 99.4%, which meets the requirements of FFP3.
Advantages of the SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 NR nanorespirator
- Filtration efficiency of the nanostructured membrane 99.4%.
- Unused FFP3 nano-respirators have a shelf life of 5 years.
- No exhalation valve = protection not only for the wearer but also for those around.
- Simple and practical elastic band fastening.
- Easy breathing due to low pressure resistance.
- Shapable noseband with foam seal.
- Environmentally friendly material.
The SPURTEX® PP L3 V1 material, from which the SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 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 quality class FFP3. In addition, however, SPURTEX® PP L3 V1 material, thanks 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 the capture of 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.
How to use the SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 NR nanorespirator
- 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 elastic bands.
- Press the respirator on with the mouldable metal band.
How to choose the right size
How long can I use the FFP3 disposable nano-respirator for?
SPURTEX® nanofiber respirators can be used safely for a full working shift (8 hours). However, if the respirator is used in a highly microbially active environment (bacteria/viruses), this time can be significantly reduced depending on the contamination of the working environment due to the concentration of harmful particles on the surface of the respirator.
The product is declared as disposable, however, 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 using SPURTEX® Unisanol disinfectant (HERE).
Long life of the FFP3 respirator
SPURTEX® respirators are also unique in that they are effective in long-term, therefore 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. The nano-membrane used in SPURTEX® respirators operates solely on the principle of mechanical trapping due by the nanofibers, not electrostatic charge as is the case of conventional respirators, which of course lose their charge over time and therefore also their ability to trap ultrafine particles. Respirators are also suitable for long-term storage.
How does the nanofiber membrane in the SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 NR nanorespirator 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 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 mesh 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 trapping sub-micron particles (10-400 nm) and is therefore ideal for trapping a wide variety of bacteria and viruses (SARS-CoV-2 virus is reported to have a realistic size of 80-150 nm).

About the material
The SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 NR respirator is made of SPURTEX® PP material, which is a seven-layer laminate consisting of non-woven polypropylene fabrics and a specially developed active nanofiber filtration layer made of PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) polymer prepared using state-of-the-art polymer solution wetting technology in an electrostatic field. The SPURTEX® V300 FFP3 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 respirator does not provide protection against gases. The amount of oxygen in the environment must be at least 17%. The manufacturer accepts no liability, either direct or indirect, for damages (including loss of profit or loss of reputation) caused by improper application or use of SPURTEX®.

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.
