Internationally Tested & Certified

The FineGuard™ masks are a sustainable environmentally friendly alternative to single-use masks.

After conducting more than 65,000 experiments and filing more than 100 patents, the technology developer has come up with a solution that is a global game changer. The principle underlying the technology is the ability of polycationic surfaces to inactivate microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, and several types of fungi, and to do so without leaching.

The anti-viral fabric of the FineGuard masks has been tested and does not contain leachable metals or chemicals that can be harmful to users or the environment. Global tests, endorsements and certifications include:

Europe:

CE Class I and Class II medical device / ISO 14001 and EC certified compliant. Permitted under EN14683 Surgical Mask standard in Europe.
 
Australia:

    Masks meet specifications and have been TGA approved as a Class 1 Medical Device.

    USA:

      FineGuard mask meets CDC recommendations for cloth masks that provide source control to slow the spread of COVID-19.

      The mask has been authorized by FDA under a EUA for use by HCP as PPE to help prevent the spread of infection or illness in healthcare settings and by the general public to help slow the spread of the virus during the COVID19 pandemic.

      The technology is also under application with the US Environmental Protection Agency as the world’s first self-disinfecting textile technology.

      India:

        Meditech category India, CoEs established under SGDTT for Meditech – SITRA.

        Compliant with IS9473 (Respiratory Protective Devices, Filtering Half Masks to Protect Against Particles) by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

        China:

          The mask without an exhalation valve has been certified compliant by Guangdong Testing Institute of Product Quality Supervision.

          Other regions:

            Further certifications and conformity are in place for Jordan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, UAE, India, and others.
