What protection does STOPDROPLET™ provide?
If combined with social distancing, frequent hand washing and other procedures proposed by international health organizations, it helps to prevent the spread of droplet-borne viruses.
If I wear the STOPDROPLET™ mask, am I sure I am not infected with viruses present in droplets?
No, non-infection is not only a result of wearing a mask. This is due to the fact that for example the virus could also be transmitted by a droplet that comes into contact with the eyes. We need integrated management of our behavior and the application of additional methods to completely reduce the likelihood of infection, as mentioned in the previous question.

How can I be sure that I will not be infected with viruses carried in droplets?
There is no way to be sure that you are not infected with viruses carried in droplets. One can only try to reduce the risk.

STOPDROPLET™ masks are intended for those who are looking for a product created after detailed technical studies and are manufactured using a fabric with very specific characteristics of weaving, refractive and water and liquid repulsivity.
Is the STOPDROPLET™ mask certified?
Since the STOPDROPLET™ mask is not a surgical mask, neither a medical device nor a specialized personal protective device, no state approvals are necessary for its release. But because some quality certification is necessary for such a product, we developed our own test called AirDrop(let)Test to measure the ability of STOPDROPLET™ masks to filter the droplets and at the same time to guarantee the airflow required to allow the user to breathe freely and safely.
How does AirDropTest work?
AirDropTest is a test conducted with a specific machine that promotes an aerosol containing droplets, such that coughing and sneezing is simulated, on a cloth cloth and then measures the ability of that fabric to filter as well as the permeability of the fresh air that measures the "breath" of the person. The size of the droplets is measured with an infrared camera.
