BRIGHTON, Colo., July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- After a successful Kickstarter launch on June 25, 2020, the UV Mask, the first antiviral and anti-pollution face mask with active UV-C air purification in the world, crossed the $1M mark, with another month to go, making it the most funded mask on Kickstarter.
"The records we broke within the past few days prove the importance of our mission — developing the next-generation face masks and tools to ensure safety and protection in these uncertain times," said Boz Zou, Creator of UV Mask.
UV Mask is the next generation reusable face mask with the most powerful UV-C purification technology on the market.
The key component of UV Mask is the real-time dual sterilization mechanism: passive filtration, similar to N95 respirator masks, and a patent-pending active Sterile-Vortex UV-C sterilization.
In combination, they raise the sterilization and purification efficiency level of UVMask to 99.99%, which is enough to eliminate any pollutant, bacteria, virus, or allergen — 100x smaller than a grain of flour — 10x faster than you breathe.
As glass components reduce UV-C light transmission, UV Mask's Sterile-Vortex uses the highest quality Sapphire crystal optics and high precision chip manufacturing to power each UV-C light. With 2 pure 265nm UV-C LEDs outputting a total of 50,000 μW, this technological breakthrough is the first time UV-C has been scientifically proven to sterilize the air we breathe in real-time.
"We have developed UVMask with the safety of our users in mind, therefore UVMask has been independently tested and certified by the FDA-approved and ISO 17025 accredited SGS Labs," sums up Boz.
UV Mask's CE-FFP2 (EU Standards N95 equivalent) passive air filter has been tested according to the EN 149-2001+A1-2009 standards, receiving a 0.3-micron filtration efficiency of 99%.
UV Mask is available on Kickstarter until August 14, 2020.
