Silvertize Antimicrobial Face Mask

Silvertize Antimicrobial Face Mask

Don’t Just Keep Germs from Spreading.
Stop Them in Their Tracks.


With COVID-19 causing many states to require the use of face masks while out in public, many have turned to homemade solutions or cheap surgical masks to protect themselves. Silvertize knew that they could and should turn their powerful, germ-killing cloth into a face mask, offering a superior alternative to most options available today. 

The Benefits of Silvertize Face Masks

  • Antimicrobial, antibacterial mask
  • Protect against bacteria and viruses, including Coronavirus
  • 99.9% pure silver in 100% cotton weave

While they may look similar in style to surgical masks, the Silvertize antibacterial masks do far more than just contain droplets. 

Surgical Masks vs Antimicrobial Masks

The biggest (and dare we say only) similarity between a typical surgical mask and the antimicrobial masks made by Silvertize are the primary function: to contain liquid droplets/aerosols from leaving the wearer’s mouth or nose and spreading through the air. 

The differences, however, make it easy to see why a Silvertize Antimicrobial Face Mask offers greater protection to the wearer. 

Material

Surgical masks are usually created from 3 layers, consisting of nonwoven fabric with an interior polymer barrier. It’s this barrier that prevents the droplets from leaving. 

Silvertize masks are created using 99% pure silver in a 100% cotton weave. This silver-bonded cotton is a natural fiber; only natural fibers absorb ambient moisture, which is critical for creating the chemical reaction that produces silver ions.

Why it Matters

The material is of the utmost importance because it’s the silver ions that kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi. How does it do this? Basically punching a hole in the membrane and wreaking havoc once inside. Learn more about the science and statistics here

Longevity

Surgical masks are a single-use item, designed to be worn once and then thrown away. Its important masks are removed and disposed of properly, as they will hold on to any germs they come into contact with and act as a breeding ground for more bacteria. Disposable masks create waste and hazards. 

Silvertize masks are meant to be worn, worn again—and then worn again and again. Given that they’re pure silver-bonded cotton, you can throw them right into your washing machine; the silver power is preserved for over 50 washes. Also, because of this superior material makeup, the masks are actively killing harmful bacteria and viruses as they’re making contact with the silver ions, greatly minimizing the amount of bacterial reproduction that can take place. 

Why it Matters

Sure, you could be careful when removing your mask to try to wear it more than once, but in that time the amount of bacteria/viruses on the surface could have very well doubled. Why risk it? Silvertize Antimicrobial Face Masks are universally effective, as there are no known silver-resistant microorganisms among medically relevant strains. You can rest assured that nothing unwanted is hitching a ride on your mask, no matter how many times you wear it. 

Comfort

Surgical masks often feature elastic ear loops or elastic bands, both of which can become uncomfortable after extended use. Plus they’re often too large for children, making it difficult to use them effectively.

Silvertize masks are expertly created without any chemical solvents and feature easy-to-use cord stops. By taking the elastic out the equation, they can be sized to any face for all-day, comfortable protection. Plus, Silvertize antibacterial cloths and masks are hypoallergenic by nature, making them a great choice for children, the elderly, and any other vulnerable individuals. 

Why it Matters

Compared to all the other great benefits offered by antimicrobial masks, comfort is pretty low on the list. But hey, if you’re going to be wearing a face mask for the foreseeable future, wouldn’t you want it to be comfy as well as functional?

Kill Germs & Stay Safe with Silvertize

Don’t just take our word for it. Silvertize has been laboratory tested, proven to kill 99.9% of germs on the cloth’s surface. 

Testing performed by Microchem Laboratory, an EPA- and FDA GLP-Compliant, ISO 17025-Accredited testing laboratory.

Frequently Asked Questions about Silvertize

When the germs are killed on the cloth, where do they go?

Germs (bacteria, viruses) are microscopic and disintegrate when they are killed. There are no visible or harmful remains.

When should I wash the cloth or my mask?

The cloth and masks continually produce silver ions that kill germs, so there is no need to wash them unless there is visible soil or stains. You can hand wash in the sink with mild (non-chlorine) soap, rinse, and air dry. There is no loss of germ-killing ability with over 50 washings.

How do silver ions kill microorganisms? Is it safe to have them touching my nose and mouth?

Unlike antibiotics that kill specific micro-organisms, silver ions simultaneously attack up to 10 sites in the cell which stop reproduction and cause cell death. Mutated pathogens do not survive. Silver ions kill a broad spectrum of medically relevant micro-organisms that include bacteria, fungi (molds and yeasts) and deactivate viruses. Silver ions, when applied externally, are non-toxic to human cells and very safe.

Will a face mask protect me from all bacteria and viruses, like COVID-19 or the flu? 

The WHO, CDC, and other organizations maintain that face masks alone cannot protect someone from COVID-19 or other illnesses. However, there are many situations that could warrant the extra protection provided by a face mask. See the WHO’s advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19 to learn when and how to use masks.
