Disposable masks are disposable masks used for medical purposes. The disposable masks are made of polyurethane that has a disposable nose piece and disposable mouthpiece that fit inside the mouthpieces of the disposable mask. The disposable masks also provide a strong breathable barrier to prevent the growth of bacteria on the face.
Compared to respirator masks, these disposable masks are much cheaper to manufacture. There are some types of masks, which are made from other materials like vinyl, polyester and nylon. They are usually thinner and they are suitable for emergency use only.
The disposable mask must be cleaned very well before using it. This is so because germs, dirt and dust that can be acquired while using this type of mask can affect the healing process of wounds. Many infections can also be transmitted from person to person by using this kind of mask.
Disinfecting a mask properly is very important because this helps in preserving the membrane of the mask, the stitching and the stitches in the mask. Disinfecting is done using a cotton swab, which should be dipped into disinfectant and then disinfected using any cloth. This will kill all germs, dirt and dust inside the mask.
Disposable masks are usually made from flexible material, the material can be flexible in two ways: It can be elastic, which means that it can stretch like a tube and it can also be pliable, which means that it will bend slightly. Another way in which these masks are made is by using Velcro strips. These are to be put inside the disposable mask and then the mask is adjusted to fit the head of the user. Some masks have an open front which allows air to pass through the mask and thus enables them to be used for many hours.
Disinfection of the disposable mask is usually done by boiling with water and chlorine bleach. One may also do it using warm water. If one does not want to use disinfection, he can purchase a disinfectant spray that can be used once every six months. These can be bought from stores or even online.
Disposable masks are useful in many cases because they can be used at any time of the day without causing any side effects to the users. People can go out of the house and go to work without having to take their entire face protection system with them. The disposable masks also come in a variety of colors and styles that make them versatile and user friendly.
