BENEFIT OF WEARING A VOGMASK

DIFFERENT TYPES OF VOGMASKS

Vogmask is offered in valved and non-valved respirators.



VALVED VOGMASKS help protect the mask wearer from inhalation of microscopic particles and feature two filter media sewn in to the middle layers of the mask and 1 or 2 exhalation valves. Please note that the exhale of the mask wearer exits partially through the valve unfiltered.



Valved Vogmasks are VMCV with single exhale valve, and VMC2V Organics with dual exhale valves.



Valved Vogmasks include carbon filter layer which helps with odors and absorbing moisture.



 


NON-VALVED VOGMASKS help protect both the mask wearer from inhaling microscopic particles AND help protect the environment from the exhaled droplets of the mask wearer.  Non-valved Vogmasks feature the same highly efficient particle filtering media sewn into the middle layer of the mask as the valved Vogmasks. Note that non-valved Vogmasks filter both inflow and outflow.



Non-valved Vogmask are products marked VMR, VMC (with carbon), and Organic VM.

USEFUL LIFE AND REUSABILITY

Vogmask conforms to Reusable Status:


The particle (and carbon filtering, if applicable) layers are sewn into the middle layers of the mask and are not replaceable.



What is the useful life of Vogmask?


The filter media in Vogmask is fully efficient for three years from manufacture. The


recommended Use by Date is marked on the back of the packaging at top of diamond


under the International Hourglass Symbol.


Once the middle layer particle filter is saturated with microscopic particles, there is a noticeable increase in breathing resistance and the mask should be replaced.


Only in very poor quality or in proximity to wildfire or other natural disaster is this likely to occur in three to five months.



If any part or assembly of the mask is damaged, or if a good seal is not achievable, discard the mask.



Most Vogmask users replace the Vogmask at one year of use.


USEFUL LIFE AND REUSABILITY background
MAINTENANCE, CLEANING, WASHING

WASHING


Hand wash by rinsing outer and inner layer with water.  Add a drop of liquid soap and gently rub  inner and outer layer.  Rinse again and hang to fully dry before storage in a cool, dry place.  



Wash the mask only when you wish to clean the outer and inner layer. Washing the mask does not clear the filter media of microscopic particles.



The valve is permanently attached to the mask. Rinsing the valve will clear it of microscopic dust and particles. 



Daily Maintainance


You may use alcohol wipes >61% or alcohol spray without affecting filtering efficiency.


Expose to sunlight.



Can viruses breed on respirator filter material? 
Viruses cannot multiply outside of a living organism. Therefore, they cannot multiply 
on filter media or any surface of a respirator.  
For filtering facepiece respirators, the filter media is between layers of cover web and 
the user is not directly exposed to organisms trapped in the filter media. Organisms contained in droplets may be on outside surfaces of the respirator. 
Respirator users should wash their hands before putting on a respirator and after 
taking one off.

ROLE OF MASKS IN GLOBAL HEALTH

VOGMASK is a simple, non invasive way to protect respiratory health and an essential tool to advocate for your own wellness. As we are exposed to an increasing number of environmental pollutants every day; masks provide immediate protection of your health.



Vogmasks with the round disk on the side of the mask, the Exhale Valve(V), protect the wearer of the mask from inhaling airborne microscopic particles.  The two filters, carbon and particle, are the same size as the mask, sewn into the middle layers, not replaceable, but marked Reusable.  


These masks provide excellent protection for the mask wearer from contaminants entering the respiratory system. Many regions are recommending face coverings so that people who are asymptomatic do not exhale their germs into the commmunity. Non-valved Vogmasks help to protect the mask wearer and help to protect the community from exhaled droplets of the mask wearer, filtering inflow and outflow.


  
Vogmask is offered in valved and non valved Organic and Microfiber.  



VOGMASK is a tool for wellness, style, and a symbol of care for yourself, the planet, your community, and the future.
