AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With the country still in dire need of personal protective equipment during the pandemic, U.S. manufacturing startup Armbrust American is proud to announce that its entire line of disposable surgical masks has received an ASTM Level 3 rating, the highest rating for filtration effectiveness available in the world. Additionally, the company has opened pre-orders for N95 respirator masks, as well as implemented updates to its surgical masks.
An alarming number of disposable face mask products available to consumers do not actually provide the level of filtration required to protect against the novel coronavirus, which is why having both ASTM Level 3 rating and being FDA listed are so important. It also puts those wearing our masks in the best position to defend against the virus. Obtaining a Level 3 rating means Armbrust American masks have passed performance tests for fluid penetration, bacterial filtration, flammability, blood spatter filtration, and breathability. Testing was performed by Nelson Laboratories LLC, and done in compliance with the FDA's Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) regulations.
"The key difference between Armbrust American masks and what you'll find on retail shelves is a promise that you're buying the safest surgical masks in the world," said Founder and CEO Lloyd Armbrust. "You're also buying from a trusted and reliable manufacturer that's constantly making improvements to its products, unlike established competitors who have little financial incentive and don't sell directly to American citizens like we do."
Six months after launching its first factory, Armbrust American continues to demonstrate that commitment to innovation. The latest example is an upgrade to add a newly developed secure-fit nose bridge to its surgical masks, allowing the wearer to create a more secure seal around the face. The company also recently activated its first line of N95 Respirator masks, which are now available for pre-order.
