A Unique New Design


Created in March 2020 during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NXTGEN EasyFlow Mask® is a unique new product. Initially designed for frontline healthcare providers during extreme PPE shortages, the NXTGEN EasyFlow Mask® is a highly versatile solution for clinical, industrial and consumer use. The dual frame construction both protects and tightly seals around various types of replaceable filter media for unrivaled versatility. The NXTGEN EasyFlow may just be the very last mask you’ll ever need.



Comfortable Snug Fit


The NXTGEN EasyFlow Mask® combines the lower-profile fit of a mask along with the tight elastomeric seal of an industrial-type respirator. The medical grade silicone facial gasket allows a snug, comfortable fit for all day use. The facial gasket and mask frames can quickly and easily be cleaned or sanitized as often as needed without laundering. Both the mask and filter media are reusable, which reduces costs and waste.


Incredibly Breathable 


The finest mask is more than just the highest filtration specs, it also must be a comfortable and breathable product that is always used when respiratory protection is needed. True to the EasyFlow® name, the NXTGEN mask is one of the most breathable high-filtration masks in the world. All of our filter variations use highly advanced filter media, which provides robust micron and sub-micron filtration, while being up to 40% freer flowing than similar products.



Stringent Laboratory Testing


The heart of our EasyFlow masks is the premium filter media. Available in both clinically and industrially formulated composites, our EasyFlow filters have gone through extensive testing at independent, accredited labs and meet the highest global standards. Whether you are a clinical, industrial or consumer user, you can rest assured our filter composites are safe and highly effective when used according to the listed specifications. All of our filter media is 100% made in the USA and processed in an ISO 9001:2015 facility that exclusively specializes in the processing of medical and industrial filter media.

Face Mask Types

  • Cloth Masks are not approved as filtering face pieces for respiratory protection or occupational safety. On average, cloth masks have about 75% inward and outward leakage. A cloth face covering may be appropriate for the public to use as source control during droplet transmissible outbreaks, but users should limit proximity to others and time spent in indoor spaces while wearing cloth face coverings.

 

  • Surgical/Procedural Masks, are meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter. Surgical masks on average have 50% inward and outward leakage and are not suitable for filtering infectious particles. Surgical masks also may not be worn in place of respirators and are not filtering face pieces.

 

  • Respirators are the only type of mask that are considered filtering face pieces. Unlike other mask types, respirators are approved for respiratory protection. Proper respirators come with dual head straps only, and not ear loops. Respirators are made to seal around the face and on average have an inward and outward leakage of 1%-10%, with properly fit tested respirators having, on average, a 1% inward leakage rate.

Medical vs Industrial Filtration


When it comes to disposable masks, there are some significant differences between medical grade masks and industrial grade respirators. The first step to differentiating between our medical and industrial filter media, is to understand the differences between typical disposable medical and industrial grade face pieces.

Medical Mask Definition

Medical Masks, also known as surgical or procedural masks are loose-fitting, disposable devices that create a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment.

Surgical masks are made in different thicknesses and with different abilities to protect you from contact with liquids. These properties may also affect how easily you can breathe through the face mask and how well the surgical mask protects you.

If worn properly, a surgical mask is meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. Surgical masks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.

While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, by design, a surgical mask does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not provide respiratory protection from germs, fine particles and other aerosol contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the mask and your face.

The FDA regulates surgical masks (not respirators), which are primarily tested and rated for fluid resistance.

Respirator Definition

A respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. The edges of respirators are designed to form a seal around the nose and mouth. Surgical or medical respirators are commonly used in healthcare settings and are a subset of N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirators (FFRs), often referred to as N95s. Most respirators are manufactured for use in construction and other industrial type jobs that expose workers to potentially high loads of dust and small particles. They are regulated by the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

However, some respirators are intended for use in a healthcare setting. Typically, single-use, disposable respiratory protective devices used and worn by healthcare personnel during procedures to protect both the patient and healthcare personnel from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids, and particulate material. These surgical/medical respirators are regulated by the FDA for fluid resistance and NIOSH under 42 CFR Part 84 for particulate filtration.

NXTGEN Mask Differences

Beyond the fact that the NXTGEN EasyFlow Mask® is reusable, it is also a highly unique design with many benefits versus typical disposable medical or industrial masks and respirators. Some of those unique attributes are:

  • Adjustable fit: One of the most important aspects of high filtration masks is a snug, comfortable fit. The NXTGEN EasyFlow Mask® features adjustable size head straps, as well as various size gaskets and inner frames that can be used with any of our mask bodies. The silicone facial gaskets are designed to seal around the face in various positions and are much easier to find a snug, comfortable fit compared to disposable respirators.
  • Tight sealing medical filtration: Disposable medical grade masks, such as procedural or surgical masks feature materials that are capable of notable particle filtration in a laboratory setting. In the real world, these are loose fitting masks with upwards of 50% inward and outward leakage, which prevents medical masks from filtering fine particles. The NXTGEN mask features medical filter composites that meet all of the required medical standards, yet tightly seal to efficiently filter fine particles. Our medical grade filter media is very easy breathing, highly fluid resistant and will pass a qualitative fit test.
  • Don’t wear your filter media: The EasyFlow mask uniquely seals its filter media between two frames, which protects the filters and allows sanitization of the mask. One of the most challenging aspects of N95 masks is the ability to reuse or sanitize the mask and maintain its integrity. The NXTGEN mask cleverly solves this by sealing the filter media within durable copolymer and elastomeric components.
  • Incredibly easy breathing: All of our medical and industrial filter composites are made with electrostatic or a combination of electrostatic and meltblown materials. Our composites exclusively use highly advanced Hollingsworth & Vose electrostatic and meltblown materials (Technostat Plus™ & AlphaPerm™), which allow our N95 comparable filters to flow 35%-40% freer than the average N95 mask.
