What is Face Mask or Medical Mask Testing?
Medical Mask Or Protective Clothing Test List:
- Breathing resistance test,
- Synthetic blood penetration resistance test,
- Material tension test, and
- Flammability test.
Medical Mask Testing Standards:
- ASTM F2100,
- ISO 22609,
- ASTM F1862, etc.
Medical Mask Testing Machine List:
All the medical textiles or protective clothing testing machine names have presented in the following:
1. Face Masks Synthetic Blood Penetration:
It is used to test the splash resistance of face masks, by generating a tiny flow of synthetic blood and splash it on the center of the masks.
2. Impact Penetration Tester:
It is used to determine the resistance of a fabric to the penetration of water by impact and thus can be used to predict the probable resistance of fabrics to rain penetration.
3. Mask Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE):
This type of tester is used to test the particle filtration efficiency of surgical face masks, mask raw fabric results in percentage level, and such N95 means 95% filtration level.
4. Masks Bacterial Filtration Efficiency:
It is used to determine the bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) of surgical face masks, medical face masks, to identify the protective clothing performance from being exposed to bacterial airborne environments.
5. Medical Mask Differential Pressure:
It is a lab testing instrument that is used to determine the breathability of medical face masks or surgical face masks.
6. Medical Textiles Tensile Testing Machine:
It is used to determine compression rate, elongation, bending, tearing, peeling sheer force, adhesive force, finished or semi-finished products (such as medical masks), ear hangers for medical masks, medical protective clothing, surgery elongation of clothing, curtains, etc.
7. Martindale Abrasion & Pilling Tester:
It is used to determine the abrasion and pilling resistance of all kinds of textile structures.
8. Auto Water Vapor Permeability Tester:
It is used to determine the water vapor permeability of different textile and clothing fabrics including composite fabrics, coating fabrics, sportswear fabrics, and industrial fabrics.
9. 45 Degree Flammability Tester:
It is used to determine the fabric flammability or fabric burning test.
10. Hydrostatic Head Tester:
It is used to determine the resistance of fabrics and films to water penetration under pressure while firmly clamped in the test rig of the standard area.
11. Sweating Guarded Hotplate:
It is used to determine the thermal resistance characteristics of textiles for clothing to check the ability to protect from heat.
12. Medical Masks Flammability Tester:
It is used to test the flammability of medical masks, to ensure the safety of masks to wear.
13. Schildknecht Flexing Tester:
It is used to determine the resistance of coated fabrics to damage by flexing due to oscillation at 500 times per minute.
14. Temperature Humidity Chamber:
This type of test is applied for water vapor permeability testing when equipped with related kits.
