Filter Media for Protective Masks

NOWOmelt – High Quality Protective Masks

Protective masks have become our daily companions; it is therefore all the more important that we significantly increase wear comfort for mask wearers. We do so with NOWOmelt meltblown nonwovens. They are used as a filter layer in protective respirator masks to effectively filter out aerosol particles.

NOWOmelt meltblown products are made of polypropylene and characterised by a high level of filter efficiency with low pressure drop. This makes it possible to achieve effective filtering with a low level of breathing resistance.

All NOWOmelt nonwovens are produced at the NOWOtex production facility in Germany.
