The mask comes with three layers of protection to filter out the pollutants.

Atlanta Healthcare and Britain’s Cambridge Mask Co. have announced the launch of military grade anti-pollution Atlanta Healthcare Cambridge Mask for the Indian market. The launch comes amongst the rising concerns over pollution levels in the country and the need for a ‘quick fix’ for the problem.

Vibhor Jain, CEO, Atlanta Healthcare said, “This move will allow us to venture into a wider community and expand our consumer base in the country.”

The company claims that the Atlanta Healthcare Cambridge Mask uses military grade technology giving protection against dust pollution up to the level of 0.3 microns, gas pollution, nearly 100% of viruses and bacteria. This has been possible due to the 3 layers of protection.

The primary filter layer is designed to filter out larger particles such as dust and PM10.

The second layer is a Three-Ply Micro Particulate Layer, designed to block particulate pollution such as PM2.5. It is tested to filter particles as small as PM0.3. The textile is a three-ply non-woven melt-blow polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer used in a range of applications.

The military grade Carbon Layer, made from a 100% pure activated carbon cloth, was originally invented by the UK Ministry of Defence and comprises of a series of activated carbon filaments, each about 2,000 nanometres in diameter. The pores in each filament are 25 times smaller than those in standard carbon materials, and therefore more powerful. This means that bacteria and viruses are drawn to the surface from further away.

    The masks are claimed to provide 340 hours of usage time and have an expected expiry of over four years. They come in different patterns and in five sizes (catering to weight from 6kg to 90 kg & beyond). Additionally, to cater to the different lifestyles these masks come in three different options i.e., No Valve (low physical activity), 1 Valve (mild physical activity) and 2 valves (for people engaged in strenuous activities like running, bicycling, walking etc.) and are hand washable.
