Covid-19: Heytex Provides Broad Portfolio for Protection
Materials for Masks, Clothing, Beds, Mattresses, Sluices, Tanks, Tents and more
Bramsche/Germany, May 2020
In Germany the wearing of masks in public transport and supermarkets is mandatory.
Against this background, Heytex has put together a broad Portfolio to actively support the fight against the virus:
The Masks: Heysafe Makeshift Mouth and Nose Mask
Heytex recommends heytex protect – ready-made makeshift mouth-nose masks as ready-made masks, polyester knitwear, uncertified, stretchable, supple and boil-proof. Or as roll material for easy confection in different widths. Heytex supplies roll goods in different widths and running metre lengths of 50 or 100 running metres.
Mouth and nose masks have a physiological protective function and represent a physical barrier. Under certain circumstances, they can protect people in the immediate environment from saliva and slime droplets. Detailed information: https://heytex.com/heytex-protect-fuer-behelfs-mund-nase-masken.
Knitted fabric adapts to the facial contours better than woven fabric due to its stretching behaviour. The mask has a firm fit and fits comfortably. It is boil-proof, washable at 90°C and offers high durability and longevity. An advantage is that it is made of polyester and therefore generates less particle emission than natural fibres such as cotton.
On the one hand, Heytex offers material for self-made production, as finished goods as roll goods. On the other hand, ready makeshift mouth-nose masks are available as ready-made masks.
Mouth and nose masks are re-usable, non-medical items of clothing that should be washed before use.
