BARUFFI COMPOSITES HAS CREATED A PROTOTYPE OF ANTI COVID-19 MASK

The recent Covid-19 emergency has changed everyone’s life by putting us in front of an unprecedented situation. Baruffi Composites, to provide real help to all those who are fighting on the front line of this pandemic, has created a prototype of a mask made of linen/flax fiber.
The choice of this material embraces our business goal of adapting our production more and more to the use of recyclable materials: once the life cycle of the product is completed, the linen fiber will be disposed of for the production of pellets, which can be used to fuel the machines for weaving new linen fibers.
The structure of the mask is such as to adapt to the different conformations of the face and the presence of a particular gasket means that its prolonged use does not leave marks on the face. Furthermore, the structural components, such as the filters, are interchangeable, considerably extending the life of the product.
The linen mask designed by our company is very light and able to reduce the sense of claustrophobia caused by prolonged use of masks currently on the market.
Further evolutions of the project will see the development of customized masks for single use and products capable of supporting the application of visors or other accessories.
Baruffi Composites aims to market the mask for: hospital staff, law enforcement, companies and individuals.
