General

Can the mask be washed? 

The mask can be hand washed with Soap and hot water, however this will not extend the life of the filters as the pollution will be locked into them. As the whole mask is the filter, when past its useful life a new mask is needed. Please do not machine wash or dry the mask. 

How long can the mask be used for?

Cambridge Masks™ are non-disposable and can be used up to 340 hours. The length of time they are suitable for depends on how polluted the environment is when you use it. A table is provided below. The mask can be hand washed with Soap and hot water, however this will not extend the life of the filters as the pollution will be locked into them.

Filtration

What does the mask filter?

Almost 100% of Particulate Matter (PM) including PM10, PM2.5 and PM0.3. These are the sort of particles you find in coal dust from power stations, diesel exhaust fumes, factory emissions and from construction works. 

Almost 100% of gas based air pollution, including odours such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Ozone, Benzathine, and Formaldehyde. These particulates you can find in petrol fumes, chemical emissions and from many industrial processes.  

Almost 100% of harmful pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. 

Other airborne irritants or allergens such as Dust, mould spores, some odours, pet allergens and pollen.

Has the mask been independently tested?

 The filters used in the Cambridge Mask meet the N99 standard (higher than N95)This is a US Government specification for pollution masks. Cambridge Masks have been independently tested by Nelson Labs, USA which confirmed almost 100% of particulate pollution, bacteria and viruses were successfully filtered when tested. We have also tested to meet the standards for Chinese NK-95 and Korean Food and Drug Administration requirements. The masks use a triple-layer filter system which will protect from a range of airborne contaminants. 

Test Performance

99.6% average filtration of viruses

99.77% average filtration of bacteria

99.7% average particulate filtration down to 0.3 microns

 

Who is the mask for?

The whole mask is the filter, the valve is there to reduce humidity. 

If you wear glasses, live in warmer climates or cycle to work wearing the mask, we recommend you get the mask with the valve!

For order quantities as little as 200 we can add your logo, pattern or design to the outer layer of our masks. You get the same excellent filtration performance as well as a tailored product that can meet your needs.

  • Marketing: Your logo or pattern displayed prominently as people walk around on the street or cycle around
  • Employer Value Proposition (EVP) enhancement: a great way to show staff you value their long-term health.

The timeframe from order to delivery is approximately 6 weeks depending on the design. If you have a design ready, the set-up process can be quicker, but this won’t affect cost. If you are interested in learning more, please contact our team through info@cambridgemask.com.

Refunds

As Cambridge Mask’s™ pollution masks are a hygiene product, they are sterile and sealed to offer maximum protection once worn. Because of this, we are not able to offer returns for opened masks. If you would like to return an unopened mask, we will provide a full refund up to 30 days after you made the purchase.

Exchanges

For unopened masks, we can exchange the mask for a different size or pattern, provided that the customer is willing to send the original mask(s) back to our Cambridge warehouse at his/her own expense and pay the additional shipping charges.

We have found that the best way to choose the mask is by weight. Our Cambridge Mask smurfs have agreed to showcast it:

Ah, our favourite question! Where do we start?

Firstly, Cambridge Mask is the only pollution mask that has a triple filtration system with a military component. N99 rated, it filters nearly 100% of pollution particles as small as PM2.5 and PM0.3. Please have a look here for official testing results. Importantly, most other masks’ filters consist of granulated carbon, which is very thin and thus much less effective. Cambridge Mask™ uses activated carbon that is spun into a yarn and woven into cloth. The filter consists of a series of such activated filaments, with pores 25 times smaller than in other filter materials. 

Secondly, Cambridge Mask™ filters have been treated with silver, giving it anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, killing and blocking 99.77% of all bacteria and 99.6% of all viruses! The military grade cloth furthermore removes gases, vapours and any vaporous off-gassed from trapped liquid particles. Other masks would trap these, but not absorb them. Therefore, on top of filtering out pollution particles, Cambridge Masks furthermore protect you and your loved ones from bacteria, viruses and gases found in air pollution.

Thirdly, what do you mean similar looking masks? Please have a look at our range of the most fashionable pollution masks on the market!

Yes, nearly 100% of it! Not only that, Cambridge Mask™ filters particles as little as PM0.3. If that isn’t enough, it also kills 99.77% of all bacteria and 99.6% of viruses! Please read more here.

Cambridge Masks™ are non-disposable, meaning that you can use them for potentially hundreds of hours. The length of time they are suitable for depends on how polluted the environment is when you use it. A table is provided below, but a “rule of thumb” (a guideline) is that you can use the masks on a regular basis for 3-6 months before it needs replacing. Note that the masks are washable, but cleaning them only removes dirt not pollution trapped inside the filter. So the mask needs to be replaced after extended use to ensure proper filtration.

Pollution Level Air Quality Conditions  (AQI) Description Replace After
Good Below 50 Clear visibility to horizon Mask Not needed
Moderate/Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups 51-150 Cannot see pollution with the naked eye, slight haze on horizon 340 hours
Unhealthy/Very Unhealthy 151-300 Haze at 2-3 km visibility 220 hours
Hazardous 301-500 Clouds of pollution, visibility around 1km. 180 hours
Beyond Index Over 500 Visibility below 600 meters. Fog-like clouds of pollution clearly visible even in bright sunlight. 90 hours

Great question! The whole mask is the filter, this is why it lasts much longer than other pollution masks. 

The valve is not the filter, it is there to reduce humidity for increased comfort in all weathers! In fact, it helps many people cycle to work in busy city centres around the world!

Yes, you can hand wash it with some soap.
