Duvaltex Inc., a North American developer and producer of medical and technical textiles, is using 3D-knit technology to launch an innovative, nonmedical protective face mask. The X7 mask provides maximum comfort while minimizing the risk of contamination and transmission of viruses, according to a press release.
The mask’s air-chamber 3D-knit design ensures that it fits the face perfectly and allows air to circulate freely, making it easy to breathe and limiting condensation. Designed for all-day use, it features specifically engineered yarns that resist odor and combat microbe-causing bacteria for an additional level of protection. The yarns also allow the mask to be washed with a bleaching solution while preserving its color and shape. Made in the USA, the mask comes in different sizes for optimal face contouring.
The X7 mask is available in bulk quantities for large businesses as well as retail, hospitality and service industries, or individually, through a dedicated e-commerce platform at knit.duvaltex.com.
In addition, the company has ramped up production of its Level 1 and Level 2 gowns and antimicrobial scrub textiles. The engineered reusable fabrics are woven to make medical and hospital gowns as well as laboratory and protective clothing, with and without antistatic performance capabilities.
