The length of the life of the mask is actually determined by the fabric material, technology, user habits and other aspects.
1. On the fabric: Because the mask is in direct contact with the face and mouth, its breathability, softness, elasticity and durability are the main factors that determine the duration of the mask. Among them, the air permeability is directly related to the cleanliness of the mask, and only by ensuring the cleanliness of the mask can the mask play its protective role and will not become a breeding ground for germs.
And good skin softness can avoid itching and allergies when the face is rubbed against the fabric, which can also prolong the use time of the mask to a certain extent. As for elasticity and durability, it is more related to whether the shape of the mask remains unchanged.
2. Technical aspects: With the high incidence of air pollution such as smog, the intensity of air pollution is increasing, and now the life of masks must be continuously updated and improved technically. This not only requires the introduction of new filter material technology, but also requires excellence in the technology of the fit between the mask and the face.
3. Usage habits: If the fabric and technology of a mask reach an excellent level, the shelf life is at least 2 years. However, if the use of the mask, as well as the cleaning and maintenance methods, are not carried out in accordance with scientific methods, its lifespan will be greatly reduced.
Therefore, the life of a Disposable Face Masks depends on the manufacturer's production materials and processes, as well as the user's use and maintenance methods.
