With the emergence of more infectious coronavirus variants, coupled with the rise in the number of Covid-19 cases in Singapore, experts are warning of the possibility of a spike in infections ahead.
This underlines the importance of proper mask-wearing, especially when entering crowded places, and ensuring that one's mask offers good protection against possible infection. Ouch, together with our partner, has developed the new generation of antiviral 6-in-1 washable facemasks using Bacmatic by Dymatic, a chemical coating that swiftly deactivates viral pathogens.
Bearing in mind the hot and humid climate in Singapore, our masks have also incorporated HeiQ's Smart Temp technology in ensuring maximum comfort with extended hours of usage.
A potent combination of cutting-edge technologies in creating the next generation of washable facemasks with complete 6-in-1 protection: water repellent, antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, odour control and temperature control.
Our facemask is available in our unique greyish-blue with the convenient adjustable earloop that helps you get a more customized fit. The durable three-layer structure also features 3D contour centre stitching that allows for breathing without restriction, a great choice for your next workout.
§ Dymatic Bacmatic DM-3015N
works by rapidly breaking down the lipid envelopes of viruses and bacteria on contact with the surface of the treated fabric, rendering them deactivated, thereby protecting the wearer and preventing further transmission. Rigorous testing has shown that Bacmatic has a proven destruction rate of >99% for Influenza A (H1N1) & H3N2 viruses. In addition to offering antiviral and anti-bacterial protection, the textile coating also provides a host of other benefits, including being anti-fungal and odour control. Effective for more than 40 washes, Bacmatic also presents a more environmentally sustainable option compared with disposable facemasks and other PPE products.
§ Market leader in innovative textile treatments, HeiQ's Smart Temp
is a patented cooling technology that is activated by the temperature of the wearer whereby on detecting a rise in temperature, the fabric's cooling properties are activated to keep the wearer feeling fresh, dry and comfortable. This intelligent thermoregulation is a crucial feature given a new reality, which will require everyone to wear facemasks over long periods of time. The expertly engineered textile deactivates the cooling effect once the desired effect has been achieved, providing dynamic temperature control.
