ABOUT G.E. Mask’s:
Our innovation is inspired by the scarcest products these days, face masks! Basically, there is a breakdown in the global stock of face masks, and it is a basic necessity for general population in most countries. In many places the authorities have also recommended the use of these masks (or similar) on public transport. Respiratory viruses, specifically SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19) can live up to 72 hours on different surfaces. This is a problem since using a conventional mask, at the end of the day we would have a high viral load trapped within millimeters of our nose and mouth, further exposing ourselves to these dangerous microbes. Our approach is to attempt to use active (antimicrobial) /and or sterile materials to address this problem. Hospitals around the world are close to running out of face masks in the middle of the worst pandemic of Our century! Our purpose as a company has always been related to making a positive impact and tackle #GlobalChallenges through #Innovation,. We propose a #Reusable, #Customizable, face mask. Let’s survive this pandemic with #3DPrinting and continued innovation!
INSTRUCTIONS: CLEANING CONSIDERATIONS Washing: Wash the equipment with soap and clean water. Rinse: Rinse equipment thoroughly with clean water. Disinfect: Disinfect the equipment to inactivate any remaining pathogens. Use chemical disinfection, not autoclave. These are the most accessible chemical methods and germicides: Method 1: Alcohol is effective against the influenza virus. Ethyl alcohol (70%) is a powerful broad-spectrum germicide and is generally considered superior to isopropyl alcohol. Since alcohol is flammable, limit its use as a surface disinfectant to small surfaces and use only in well-ventilated spaces. Method 2: Most household bleach solutions contain 5% sodium hypochlorite (50,000 parts per million available chlorine). Recommended dilution: 1: 100 dilution of 5% sodium hypochlorite is the usual recommendation. Use 1 part bleach to 99 parts cold tap water (1: 100 dilution) to disinfect surfaces. Adjust the ratio of bleach to water as necessary to achieve the proper concentration of sodium hypochlorite. For example, for bleach preparations containing 2.5% sodium hypochlorite, use twice as much bleach (i.e. 2 parts bleach to 98 parts water) Color will Vary.
