Disinfection of masks and other objects
Following many questions concerning disinfection methods of Respro masks offered by us and at the same time irregular supplies of Respro Sanitizer, we would like to meet your expectations and offer alternative methods of disinfection.
First of all, the masks we offer in the case of anti-smog applications can be used repeatedly, but even then, due to the bacterial flora developing on the filter surface, it is necessary to take care of their disinfection. The primary product offered by Respro is Respro Sanitizer - a product based on diluted hypochlorous acid. Care should be taken to disinfect both the outside and the inside of the mask, as well as both filter surfaces. In addition, the manufacturer recommends periodic washing of the mask shell (without filter). These directions for use are included in the instructions for use.
When using masks as a means of reducing the risk of coronavirus infection, disinfection of the masks is extremely important. Due to a discontinued supply of Respro Sanitizer we will keep you informed of future batches.
Independently, we intend to introduce other means of destroying bacteria and viruses. In general, among the methods that make it possible to destroy viruses and bacteria, the following should be mentioned:
a) ionisation - i.e. generation of negatively charged ions,
b) UV irradiation - e.g. through the use of appropriate lamps or bulbs,
c) exposure to temperatures of 60-70 degrees (pasteurisation) for a period of min. 30 minutes.
d) ozonation - that is, the generation of ozone particles that have strong oxidising properties. A very effective method requiring a certain degree of caution.
The first series of ionisation devices - Linecorr OZO-0001 described on our website - has appeared in our offer.
Placing the mask in close proximity to the device will help reduce viruses settling on it. The device can also be used to disinfect other objects and clothing and reduce the presence of ozone in the air, such as that generated by computers, as well as bacteria, dust mites and unpleasant odours.
