DEMONSTRATION

THIS HOLLOW MANIKIN HEAD FOGGER DEMONSTRATION IS MEANT TO DEMONSTRATE THE UNSURPASSED COMFORT FACTOR OF THE WEIN VIRAMASK AND FITSEAL RESPIRATORS AGAINST CONVENTIONAL STRAP HEAD HARNESS RESPIRATOR MASKS.

LONG TERM COMFORT IS THE MOST OFTEN HEARD COMPLAINT BY RESPIRATOR USERS AND HAS A DIRECT BEARING ON MASK AND INFECTION CONTROL COMPLIANCE.

THE WEIN ADHESION MASKS FORM A SKIN SAFE FDA CLEARED MOLECULAR ADHESION BOND AT THE FACESEAL. THESE ADVANCED FULLY NIOSH CERTIFIED RESPIRATORS EXERT ZERO FACIAL AND SKIN PRESSURE BY RIDING ON THE SKIN AND ACURATELY TRACKING MAXOFACIAL MUSCULATURE MOVEMENT TO KEEP FROM BREAKING THE REPIRATORY INFECTION BARRIER . THE DEMONSTRATION IS POWERED BY AN ULTRASONIC FOG GENERATOR USING ORDINARY TAP WATER TO FORCE THE 20 MICRON WATER PARTICLES UP THROUGH THE HOLLOW MANIKIN HEAD AND OUT THROUGH THE MOUTH TO THE INTERIOR OF THE FACE SEALED ADHESION AND CONVENTIONAL STRAPPED RESPIRATOR MASKS.

ANY ESCAPE OF FOG THROUGH FACESEAL LEAKEAGE IS CLEARLY VISUALIZED FOR ANY CONVENTIONAL STRAP TYPE MASK AND ANY ADHESION RESPIRATORS. THE WEIN RESPIRATORS SHOW ALMOST ZERO LEAKAGE RIDING ON THE HARD MANIKIN SURFACE. THE SAME HOLDS TRUE IF THE ADHESION RESPIRATORS ARE ON ACTUAL HUMAN FACES. CONVENTIONAL STRAP MASKS ACHIEVE MODERATE FACESEAL BY HAVING STRAP HARNESS PRESSING THE EDGES OF THE CONVENTIONAL RESPIRATOR MASK INTO THE SKIN. THE TIGHTER THE STRAPS, THE LESS THE FACESEAL LEAKAGE AND THE WORSE THE USER COMFORT.

AT SOME FACIAL PRESSURE POINT, CONVENTIONAL RESPIRATOR MASKS MAY PASS THE OVERALL FIT FACTOR OF 100 MEANING THERE ARE 100 PARTICLES OUTSIDE THE MASK FOR EVERY PARTICLE INSIDE THE MASK. BUT THE CONFORT LEVEL MAY PREVENT USAGE FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME.

BY CONTRAST, THE WEIN ADHESION RESPIRATORS RIDE ON THE SURFACE OF THE FACE AND ARE VERY COMFORTABLE FOR LONG TERM WEAR. ALSO THERE IS ZERO RUBBING OR MOVING OF THE RESPIRATOR FROM THE ORIGINAL MOLECULAR BONDING POSITION SO NO RESEALING ISSUES AFTER FACIAL MOVEMENTS WHICH COULD COMPROMISE INFECTION CONTROL. THIS IS ILLUSTRATED QUITE GRAPHICALLY DURING PORTACOUNT FIT TESTING ON GRIMACING EXERCISES WHERE THE NEXT EXERCISE READS VERY LOW AS THE CONVENTIONAL MASK RESEALS ITSELF. THIS RESEALING DOES NOT OCCUR WITH THE VIRAMASK OR FITSEAL ADHESION RESPIRATOR MASKS. TYPICAL OVERAL FIT FACTORS INCLUDING GRIMACE TEST IS OVER 1000.

WEIN DOES NOT INTEND TO PORTRAY OR IMPLY THAT CONVENTIONAL MASKS ARE UNSAFE BY THIS FOGGER DEMO BUT ONLY TO SHOW THAT WEIN RESPIRATOR MASKS OFFER HIGH LEVELS OF FIT FACTOR PROTECTION AND LONG TERM COMFORT WEARAS THE CONVENTIONAL STRAPPED MASKS CAN OFFER SIMILAR HIGH LEVELS OF RESPIRATORY PROTECTION BUT ONLY AT THE COST OF COMFORT AS STRAPS ARE TIGHTENED TO ACHIEVE ACCEPTABLE FIT FACTORS (FF 100) AND RESPIRATORY PROTECTION.
