Nano ePTFE

Compromise? Not when it comes to the air we breathe. This is where we draw the line.

At REDDY air mask, we make no compromises when it comes to the air we breathe. This is why we’re bringing you the best-in-class membrane-based HEPA technology industry-leading cleanrooms depend upon. We call it nano ePTFE , HEPA technology made for humans.

What is a Nano ePTFE?

Our industry-leading spiderweb-like membrane can capture the tiniest particles down to the size of 0.075 microns without relying on an electrostatic charge. This is the same type of Teflon®-based HEPA filter technology trusted by the cleanroom industry due to its superb reliability, performance, and energy efficiency.

Nano ePTFE, commonly known as Teflon found on non-stick-pans. It is the preferred air filtration technology in high-demand applications such as clean rooms due to its high energy efficiency and stability. It works by physically capturing particles using nano-scale pores rather than relying on temporal charges used by traditional melt-blown filters.

The first thing you’ll notice after putting on Reddy air mask made from Nano ePTFE filter technology is how noticeably breathable it is, even when compared with other membrane-based filters. This is because our proprietary Nano ePTFE filter is incredibly thin (less than 0.0003 mm) and uses millions of tiny pores to physically block out harmful particles all day long.

What’s the difference between traditional melt-blown &  nano ePTFE filters?

Almost all current medical and N95-grade face masks are made out of what is known as Melt-blown filters. Most people don’t like to wear those masks because they find them very hard to breathe in. As well as being very thick, Melt-blown filters can only be used for a few short hours before they have to be thrown out due to a phenomenon called charge-decay. This type of filter also can’t be re-used, disinfected with alcohol, or washed with soap. This is because melt-blown filters rely on temporal electrostatic charge to capture small particles, which is similar to how batteries work; once they run flat, they stop working and have to be thrown out. Like batteries, melt-blown filters also have a very problematic and unpredictable long term shelf-life.

Moveover, anyone who requires daily mask protection would be required to stock between 365 to more than 1000 single-use masks a year. When this demand is scaled across the entire population (more than 7.8 billion inhabitants) for an indefinite amount of time during a biological warfare or global epidemic, we run into a global mask crisis that can never be adequately resolved with the existing technology.

Sorry Genie, not today.

We put our nano ePTFE filter to the smoke-grenade challenge! How will our ultra-thin membrane do against all the infamously nasty smoke particles from a smoke grenade?
