Face (Mask) the future.

Always on their toes, the KTC LAB team has been working on the research and development of one of the most sought after items, in the light of the current worldwide shortage during the Corona health crisis – a face mask.

The R&D work is focusing on a mask concept that – beyond the standard requirements of FFP2 and KN95 for filtration efficiency – provides an active and permanent mechanism to kill microbes, and is also reusable/washable multiple times, with no loss in performance or safety.

Like with all KTC LAB projects, the objective is to find new ways to overcome existing weaknesses of existing products. This is achieved through a combination of blending optimal materials with manufacturing innovation to create a product that displays improved features and qualities, as well as a potential for an increased product life-cycle.
