Product detailed description
Washable nanofiber masks have sewn into them a nanofiber material used for the manufacture of FFP2 class respirators. Dust, smog, pollen, mold spores, viruses, infections, or other aggressive substances and airborne pollutant allergens will not reach you when using the nanoSPACE nanofiber mask. It is therefore suitable for people suffering from allergies and asthma as well as anyone with reduced immunity who needs to protect themselves better.
Benefits of a Washable Nano Face Mask by nanoSPACE
- Available in 3 sizes
- Nose clip for excellent fit around the nose
- European nanofiber which is also used for manufacture of functional FFP2 class respirators
- Coolmax® hypoallergenic functional material
Why Are Nano Face Mask Made of Coolmax®?
COOLMAX® is a functional material that can effectively transport sweat and water vapour away from the skin. This property is crucial in sports or activities where sweating occurs. Coolmax® material is cool and pleasant on the skin, and is often used for extreme weather clothing as it can provide comfort and convenience even in extreme conditions.
What Is COOLMAX®?
It is a material that is made of polyester fibers with a unique cross-section shape. The fibre is made up of channels that help transport sweat away from the body surface faster. Thanks to these channels, sweat is drawn to the surface of the fabric where it evaporates. Coolmax materials therefore do not absorb moisture, but ensure evaporation. Coolmax materials are mainly used for functional underwear, socks, and cycling jerseys; we have used it for the production of a balaclava to increase your comfort in summer weather or during sports activities.
How Does the Nanofiber in the nanoSPACE Designer Washable Nano Face Mask Work?
The nanofiber is 1000 times thinner than a human hair and it is invisible to the naked eye. In the European, we are experts in nanofibers and in 2004, the engineers in Liberec were the first in the world to develop a machine called Nanospider for the industrial production of nanofibers. Nanofiber can be made from a wide variety of organic and inorganic materials and it is used for the production of various filters, as well as in cosmetics and healthcare.
Nanofibers are spun into a nanofiber membrane, which can be imagined as a very dense network or filter. The holes in this filter are so small that an air molecule can pass through, but bacteria, viruses or allergens cannot. PARDAM's nanofiber membrane has a tested capture efficiency of 97-99% for particles of 0.1-0.3um (100-300 nanometres). Bacteria typically range in size from 200-1000 nanometres, viruses from 20-400 nanometres. This does not mean that the membrane cannot capture particles smaller than the tested particles. On the contrary.
At the nanoscale, so-called atomic forces come into play. Due to these forces, the most critical particle size for capture on membranes in air filtration is 200-300 nm, but smaller particles are more easily captured thanks to atomic forces! 200-300 nm particles pass through membranes most easily, which is why filter materials are commonly tested for this size. Particles larger and smaller than 200-300nm are more efficiently trapped and adhered to the fibres, as the Van der Waals forces come into play for small particles. In addition, bacteria and viruses are always attached to other aerosol or dust particles in the air.
Nanofiber Membrane with Silver
nanoSPACE nano masks use a nanofiber membrane containing Nanosilver® particles. Thanks to the use of nanosilver, microorganisms cannot survive and proliferate in the structure of the mask.
Maintenance of nanoSPACE Washable Nano Face Mask
Wash the nano masks in chlorine and phosphorus-free washing gel or powder. Core soap is ideal. We do not recommend machine drying, even at low temperatures. If you are using the mask for virus protection, always sterilise it after use, for example with a disinfectant suitable for nanofiber products. The nano mask can be washed at 40 C, but to keep the membrane working for as long as possible, we recommend hand or machine washing on a gentler cycle (a hand wash programme is ideal). Leave the washed nano mask to dry for 12 to 24 hours hanging loose on a line or on a heater. If washing the mask by hand, use caution not to damage the nanofiber filter. Do not use bleach, fabric softeners or other aggressive products and do not machine dry or iron the mask. When these guidelines are followed, the product retains most of its filtering efficiency even after several dozen wash cycles. The manufacturer of the nano membrane does not recommend sterilization with a UVC lamp (germicidal lamp) as it is a strong oxidizing agent! We recommend washing without wringing. This will prolong the life of the nose clip. Mechanical damage to the filter and nose clip is not covered by the warranty. Ecoegg washable eggs are suitable for washing designer nano-ears.
How Does the Membrane Used in Our Designer Washable Nano Face Mask Differ from the Competition?
The nanofiber membrane used in nanoSPACE antivirus gaiters is characterised by being robust and resistant to damage. We have tested all of the membrane types available on the European market and unlike the one used by us, all the other competitors did not survive washing (efficiency of competitor membranes was reduced from 99% to 10% already after one washing). Our membrane retains 95% efficiency after 15 mild washing cycles. We recommend daily sterilising with a disinfectant and washing on a weekly basis.
Our membrane is also enriched with nanoparticles of silver preventing microorganisms from proliferating inside the membrane.
Handy, Environment Friendly Packaging
Masks are packed in a doypack made of 100% recyclable material (recycling mark "7") in white or black. The bag is resealable. It is handy to carry the masks in your handbag or to put contaminated masks in it.

|Designer Washable Nano Masks
The Czech company nanoSPACE has been operating on the market since 2012 and focuses primarily on products where nanofiber textiles are used. In 2012, it became the first manufacturer to use a nanofibrous membrane in barrier covers for allergy sufferers. Since then, it has expanded its portfolio to include nano duvets and nano pillows, which are especially suitable for people with dust allergies.
In 2016, it was the first in the world to present functional bed linen that can fully replace barrier coatings. This product line, which bears the name Nanocotton®, was able to combine the functionality of the material with organic cotton and is suitable not only for allergy sufferers, but also for atopic patients.
During the coronavirus epidemic in 2020, nanoSPACE used its long-term knowledge in the field of nanofiber materials and started the production of anti-virus neck gaiters and protective masks made of nanofiber. From 2021, it also produces designer washable nano masks.
In 2021, the nanoSPACE company founded the subsidiary nanoSPACE Technology, which is dedicated to development, research and innovation in the field of nanofiber textiles.
