Why choose a mask from Puraka?

We Know Masks | Puraka was founded in Seattle, Washington in 2018, after the West Coast wildfires. We served on the joint CDC/ASTM committee that developed the national standard for protective face coverings, F3502. Our masks are tested in North American laboratories to ensure they exceed the minimum filtration levels. In short, we have the experience to know how to make a great mask, and what to look for in a filter.

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).

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 shipping on any order of two or more masks, or you can upgrade to USPS Priority or First Class for just $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

Essential Masks meet F3502 standards, the US benchmark for protective barrier face masks. Puraka's 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 wear a mask, practice physical distancing, avoid touching your mouth and nose with your hands, and wash your hands regularly. A facemask is not a substitute for the other mitigation strategies. A facemask and carbon pm2.5 filter will be highly effective against water droplets carrying airborne illnesses. Fine aerosols traveling solo will be greatly reduced, but will not be completely eliminated.

The masks are not only attractive but they are very well made. The fit is exceptional. Plus...I can breathe easier than with other masks I have tried. The price is very reasonable for the excellent quality. Added bonus, they sell replacement filters for their masks. I highly recommend.

I love these masks! My daughter has to wear them all day and has no issues not being able to breathe. Very well made, a lot of variety. Customer service is outstanding, as I’ve asked a ton of questions. My friend did some extensive research on the best masks, told me about this company and I totally agree! Thank you-

We recently received our masks and they really are of great quality! Well-made, very comfortable, and without any issues breathing with them on. They fit very well, and I appreciate not just the flexible wire on top / nose bridge, but also how they're tucked at the bottom, covering and tucking under your chin. I really do feel safer with them on. I also appreciate how responsive customer service has been. In fact, I'm so satisfied with this company, both the product and customer service, that I recently came back to subscribe for a year's supply of filters. I highly recommend Puraka.

Top quality masks and filters. They fit very well and are sturdy and well made. In addition, their customer service is amazing! They are responsive and helpful and truly stand behind their product! I am recommending their masks to everyone I know! It's also nice to know that they are not just figuring out how to make good masks due the pandemic but have been in the business for a few years already, so they have the infrastructure and quality that is necessary to produce a consistent product.

Fit is Key
Research shows that fit is one of the key factors in ultra-fine filtration. These masks have an adjustable metal nose piece. Unfortunately the elastic runs through the mask sides which cause it to bunch up. When you exhale the air blows out of the sides.

We have been using Puraka masks since March when the pandemic became more widespread. We also signed up for the subscription to get replacement filters each month. With the subscription, the filters are very affordable. The masks are comfortable and the straps adjust easily for a better fit. One of my daughters has a more petite face and we ordered the small adult mask and it fit much better. It is easy to breathe, even through the filters, and you can change them out once you notice that it is getting a little harder to breathe. We love being able to wash our masks too.
