Face Mask Material: PP Nonwoven Meltblown Fabric | ES Hot Air Cotton | Nose Wire | Earloops
Face mask materials are the base of qualified antiviral masks,
For flat earloop 3 ply face masks, the raw materials are pp non-woven fabric(external and interior layer), melt-blown fabric as the middle filter material, nose wire, and earloops to get better facial fit.
While for the KN95 face mask, more layers are applied, one or two meltblown fabric are added to achieve a better filtration efficiency, and hot air cotton(es fiber) is also used to produced kn95 face mask.
Face mask structure and material used:
3 ply flat mask structure and materials used
5 ply KN95 mask structure(Double-layered Meltblown)
Face Mask Material: Meltblown Fabric(Filter material)
Meltblown fabric is the indispensable part of an antiviral face mask material, without meltblown fabric, or made with unqualified meltblown fabric, the mask can not protect the wearer from the potential risk of infecting virus in the air.

It’s not an easy task to buy the qualified face mask materials, there are many speculators in the market that offering bad quality face mask materials, which can not be used to produce antiviral masks, we, TESTEX, as the mask-making machine manufacturer, mask testing instruments manufacturer, and also produce disposable 3 ply antiviral masks in our own workshop, we can identify the face mask materials quality before purchasing from our supplier by testing the face mask material sample in our textile testing lab with our instruments.
We have a series of testing instruments to validate the materials we source from the non woven fabric supplier, for example, we will use the Particle Filtration Tester to classify the filtration efficiency of the meltblown fabric, the differential pressure tester to test the breathability of the pp.spunbonded nonwoven fabric, and etc.
Our aim is to provide you with the right mask materials, which has high filtration efficiency and at the same time easy to breathe, these are two vital aspects when you buy melt blown fabric from non woven cloth suppliers, rather than negotiating on non woven fabric price only.

Non Woven Fabric/Cloth Supplier Introduction
The non woven fabric manufacturer was founded in 2004, headquartered in Guangzhou, after more than a decade of development, owning three non-woven companies in province Guangdong, Hubei, and Anhui, having 20 PP non-woven production lines, 5,000 square meters of clean and dust-free standard workshop, and the annual output of non-woven fabric can reach 40,000 tons.
As TESTEX upstream non woven polypropylene fabric suppliers, we will test each batch of the polypropylene spunbond non woven fabric they produced, and output with a testing report based on the testing result from our instrument, only qualified pp nonwoven meltblown cloth will then be packaged and marked as TEXINSTRU products.
