Filter Bandana: Water Pre-Filtration and Air-Contaminant Face Barrier.
Engineered with a 1 micron nominal non-woven filter. The filter inside the bandana allows you to treat water on the fly using as a straining system or use as a hand to mouth mask to shield from the effects of gases/smoke and airborne contaminates. In an emergency scenario; filtered water can be consumed to prevent dehydration. Additionally, in the event of a fire, expoaure to airborne diseases, or hazardous release of gases/particulates; filter can be placed over airways to negate effects to aid in escape from scene or movement they high risk area. Bandana can be used as an improvised field dressing by applying to wound.
Also Available in a "Mask" model. Designed with two elastic straps (as seen on standard dust masks) that wrap behind head and over ears to hold mask in place. 12"x6" with filter material centered over mouth/nose area. Find this option in the drop down options labeled Mask.
Water Filter: Non-woven, polymer fiber matrix filter, rated as a nominal 1 Micron filter. Serves as field expedient filter. Particulates and micro-organisms larger than 1 Micron sieve pours are captured and filtered from water. Pores and membranes allow water permeation (flux) and broad-spectrum separation on nano-particulates. Material is a food grade polyester hybrid (quick-drying) to inhibit mold growth.
Dusk Mask / Air Respirator: 1 Cubic Feet Per Minute (CFM) air flow filter capable of capturing harmful particles and contaminates such as carcinogens, exhaust, and other pollutants (such as formaldehyde, toluene, hydrogen sulfide and ammonia). Serves as barrier against harmful gas such as benzene and carbinol. Bandana shields from airborne pathogens making it ideal for wear during viral outbreaks or a pandemic scenario.
SPECS: 2 fabric outer layers with an inner 1 Micron Polymer Filter sewn inside the center between outer layers, est. 10" x 10" size.
Tips: Hold center of hank against mouth/nose to aid in protection of harmful air contaminates. Wet/soak prior to use for best filter results.
Tips: To filter water, pour 2oz at a time into center of hank(holding in cone shape) and allow water to dissipate thru material into collection container and repeat process.
Tips: Fashion into bandage to ease blood loss. Offers absorbing and clotting functions needed to treat field injuries. Place on wound and secure in place.
Care/Maintenance: Hand wash. Use 5% bleach solution and rinse thoroughly. Hang dry only. For field expedient cleaning, boiling water (under 275°F) may be poured thru filter.
*Abilities to filter water and air particulates based on manufactures claims, independent studies/lab tests, and testing with TDS monitor, UV dissolution observation, PH, Coliform Bacteria, Lead, Pesticides, Chlorine, Total Hardness, and Nitrates/Nitrites test kits.
*Use at your own risk based on your training and experiences. Materials are not FDA/EPA/NIOSH approved.
*Recommended use is as a pre-filter and improvised airborne safety mask.
*Hank is semi-rigid but still foldable and pliable.
