Product detailed description
Protective 3-layer respiratory mask with nanofiber membrane from the European manufacturer SPUR. The nano material has a proven 84% capture for virus-sized particles. The nano mask is suitable for all those who need a higher degree of protection (medical personnel, chronically ill, risk groups, allergy and asthma sufferers). nanofiber masks for children are disposable and have a reinforced, bendable edge that easily adapts to any face shape.
SPUR's nanofiber masks 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 shown to have a filtration capacity of 84%, which meets FFP2. For full filtration capacity, the mask needs to fit tight to the child's face to ensure proper seal. The measurement of the filtration efficiency was performed at the Institute of Chemical Technology of the CAS, the measurement protocol is dated 1 April 2020.
How does the nanofiber membrane in the SpurTex® VS Premium nano masks for children?
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 using electrospinning, thanks to which they are able to produce fibres much thinner and achieve the highest filtration capabilities.
Nanofibers are spun into a nanofiber membrane, which can be thought of as a very dense network 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 trap 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 to 150 nm).

About SpurTex® VS L2 V1
SpurTex® VS L2 V1 material, which is used for the nano mask for children, 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. In addition, however, the SpurTex® VS L2 V1 material, thanks to the unique properties of the nanofiber filter layer, 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). These filtration properties are simultaneously achieved at very low pressure drops, which not only significantly increases breathing comfort when wearing the nano mask, but also reduces the pressure drop between the edge of the nano-armor and the face, thus reducing the risk of unwanted particles passing through this area.

Protecting the user from the environment
The extremely dense nanofiber membrane captures the most common biological threats to human health known today, such as viruses, dust, allergens and smog. The disposable nano-mask is made of a unique nanostructured filter material SpurTex® PP and provides effective active respiratory protection, especially in the capture of ultra-fine particles with sizes from 10 to 400 nm (i.e. bacteria and viruses).
Thanks to the low pressure resistance, the mask remain perfectly breathable and allows easy breathing. The ergonomics of the mask have been designed to ensure not only protection from the environment but also perfect user comfort.
Benefits of the SpurTex® VS Premium nano masks for children:
- A nanofiber respirator has comparable filtration efficiency to a non-vented respirator.
- The nanofiber hood protects the user from the environment.
- It protects against COVID-19, influenza, as well as bacteria and allergens.
- It is suitable for allergy and asthma sufferers.
How long can a SpurTex® VS Premium nano masks for children be worn for?
Nano masks are disposable. They can commonly be worn for 3-8 hours depending on the environment.
What is the difference between a mouthpiece and a mask?

Masks are handmade. Dimensions measured above may vary by up to 1 cm and are approximate. A difference in dimensions within the stated tolerance does not constitute grounds for a complaint.
Maintenance of the SpurTex® VS Premium nano masks for children
The SpurTex® VS filter children's mask is categorised as disposable material. Its unique filtration properties are only retained for a very limited time depending on the environment. This is because in normal use, after 3-8 hours, dangerous particles (bacteria, viruses, etc.) become significantly concentrated in the special nanofiber filter and the mask must be changed frequently in contaminated environments. The nanofiber structure itself is not treated with any antimicrobial treatment.
How to sterilise the SpurTex® VS Premium nano masks for children
It is not recommended to wash or iron the material. The recommended method of sterilization is by germicidal (UV-C) lamps or oxidative sterilizer (20 minutes on each side). The mask can also be sterilized by light spraying with ethanol or a suitable disinfectant, but the mask must not get wet and must be allowed to dry completely afterwards. The mask can be sterilised in this way 1-3 times. Steam sterilisation is not recommended. Other sterilisation methods must be discussed with the manufacturer.
How to put on and use the mask (in line with WHO recommendations)?
Putting on the mask.
- Wash your hands with soap and water, wipe your hands with a disposable towel and use disinfectant.
- Remove the mask from the packaging and check its integrity.
- Grasp the mask so that the folded edge is at the top.
- When fastening with strings - hold the mask at the root of the nose and tie the top strings at the top of the head with. Then grasp the bottom strings and tie them at the nape of the neck. Shape the edge of the drape to the shape of your nose.
- When fastening elastic bands - grasp the elastic bands in both hands and pull them taut behind your ears. Pull the mask as high as possible to the root of your nose and shape it appropriately.
- Grasp the bottom edge of the mask and pull over the mouth and chin.
Removing the mask:
- Wash your hands with soap and water, wipe your hands with a disposable towel and use disinfectant. Do not touch the front side of the mask.
- When fastened with strings - untie the lower string at the back of your head, then the upper one and remove the mask holding it only by the strings.
- When fastened with elastic bands - grasp the bands in both of your hands and remove the mask holding it only by the elastic bands.
- Dispose of the mask in the mixed waste. Wash your hands with soap and water, wipe your hands with a disposable towel and use disinfectant.
The nano mask is made of SpurTex® VS, a trilaminate composed of viscose-based non-woven fabrics with grammages from 60 to 90 g.m-2 and a specially developed active nanofiber filter layer made of PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) polymer prepared using the latest unique technology of polymer solution softening in an electrostatic field.
The children's mask is safe for children and the environment
The nano mask does not contain any highly fragile borosilicate microfibres commonly used in standard respiratory protective equipment, which have negative environmental, but above all health properties (their use may result in the separation of sharp needle-like particles, which have potentially carcinogenic effects).
The seller accepts no liability, whether direct or indirect, for damages (including loss of profit or loss of reputation) caused by improper application or use of SpurTex® VS.

functional + tolerable for my daughter, so good for us
The masks are rather smaller - the eight-year-old son's ears are pulled a lot. On the other hand, they fit a five-year-old perfectly and a three-year-old decently too - with a clip behind the head, they are great (even though they are intended for the 6+ category). I got a little used to the evaluation on the D-Test, where according to the tests they put it in the FFP1 category. I invested mainly for the best possible protection of school-age children, and thus also other family members. The question of efficiency is quite fundamental.
My son hasn't gotten used to the scarf yet (handling it is more difficult for a child), but he wears these masks without a problem.
Sedí dceři 11let i 5 letému synovi. Menší velikost bych doporučila pro děti tak do 3 let.
Size 2-6 I bought it for my 5-year-old son and they are small for him, I would say more for children up to 3 years old. The larger fits my son and daughter 11 years old.

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 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.
