Why choose a mask from Puraka?

More Filtration, Less Discomfort | Puraka Masks are designed for enhanced, every-day protection suitable for active or casual use. A Puraka Mask with our laboratory-tested electrostatic filters can reduce 90% of airborne particulates in the critical fine-aerosol range, much more than a typical cloth mask, but with significantly less inhalation resistance and corresponding heart strain than a medical respirator (learn more).

We Know Masks | Puraka is an American company based in Seattle, Washington, founded in 2018 after the West Coast wildfires. We serve on the ASTM committee that developed the national standard for protective face coverings, and test to ensure our masks exceed the recommended filtration levels. In short, we have the experience to know how to make a great mask, and what to look for in a filter.

Our In-Stock Guarantee | A mask is not something you should have to wait for. Every product in our store is ready to ship from one of our U.S. fulfillment centers, usually within one business day or less from when you place your order. We offer free ground shipping on any order of two or more masks, or you can upgrade to USPS Priority / First Class for only $5!

What goes in to Puraka's carbon pm2.5 filters?

Melt-blown  Melt-blown Fabric

Composition by Weight:  40%

Characteristics:  High quality melt-blown fabric is the most important part of a particulate filter. Non-woven fibers act as a physical barrier against microscopic particulates while also providing an electrostatic barrier to stop aerosolized nano-particles.

Spun-bond  Spun-bond Fabric

Composition by Weight:  40%

Characteristics:  Spun-bond is a non-woven fabric that filters out larger particles, while providing structure to the inner melt-blown layers.

Activated Carbon  Activated Carbon Fabric

Composition by Weight:  20%

Characteristics:  Activated carbon fabric traps particulates via a process called adsorption, and also serves as an antibacterial and deodorizer.

Important Safety Information

Not a Medical Mask

A Puraka Mask is not designed as nor intended for used as a substitute for medical face masks and respirators used in a healthcare setting. Although our PM2.5 filters are manufactured and tested to N95-equivalent standards, the masks are not appropriate for industrial use.

Testing & Certification

Our disposable PM2.5 filters are tested to meet multiple filtration standards, including the European Union's EN 149:2001+A1:2009 standard and China's GB2626-2006 KN95 material standards, functionally equivalent to the United States' N95 standard (the US does not provide certification for non-sealed respirators). Puraka also relies on independent laboratories to test, certify and verify that our filters exceed performance specifications.

Reminder

The most important thing you can do to prevent catching (and giving) viral infections is to practice physical distancing, avoid touching your mouth and nose with your hands, and to wash your hands regularly. A facemask is not a substitute for any of these mitigation strategies. A facemask and carbon pm2.5 filter will be highly effective against water droplets carrying airborne illnesses. Airborne virions traveling solo will be significantly reduced, but will not be completely eliminated.

4 Stars
Decent
Fits differently for me than the Essential Black mask, a little wider, but good value for the money.
