What is a good quality face mask?
In general there are no fake masks just poor quality it's hard to say whether it's good or bad mask just by looking at it so the first test is blood penetration resistance test so basically is to use our normal human blood pressure at 120 mm mercury to shoot at the mask the whole idea is so that the blood will not penetrate through the mask so the second test is bacterial filtration because it tests how efficient the mask can filter of bacteria so the normal standard is around 95% misconcept epical the mass that we are supplying to singapore is 99% and above the third test is particle filtration test for our masks we filter out particles that are point one micron and above PM 0.1 and in comparison the n95 if you toss out 2.5 micron or PM 2.5 the fourth test is probability test so in our terms is a delta pressure test how easy is it to breathe while writing the mask the pressure difference is not so high and makes it easier for the wearer to wear for a long time so the fifth test is the permeability test feel just a simply test is to ensure that the mass does not catch fire or does not spread any flames currently there are no Singapore regulatory bodies to control the standards of the mask.

So that's why we follow the US or European standards we try to meet or exceed standards normally masks should be kept in a cool dry environment there's away from sunlight best way for moisture so that it would not grow any fungus or the elastic band D treats so the whole idea of mass is to protect the people around you and not merely to protect yourself quite a surgeon wear a mask in the operating theater in case if the surgeon sneezes his bacteria does not infect the patient is on the operating theater that's why our government says wear the mask if the person is sick so that any germs would be caught inside the mask I can just throw away these are the samples from six different manufacturers visually they look quite similar but on closer inspection this one you can see that this is three ply but that ply is extremely thin so for protection is not ideal for this one so this is obviously a much better filter and that's why I can feel the droop on one micron of particles and bacteria so we should always wear the colored sight outside because the material actually Pels water one good way to test whether it repels water is by sprinkles of water over the mask so example like that and if you see if it beats up so which means they achieve repels water so we have now flipped to the other side of the mask and on the inside the mask is supposed to absorb liquid like a saliva or any water droplets so to test we do the same thing we can do the droplets test so a good mass is supposed to absorb the water droplets and there should not be any beginning so it clearly shows that there's only one mask that absorbs on the inside.
