We know that the Essential Mask Brace better secures any filtration material to the wearer’s face. But what materials are recommended?

We tested different cloth masks stack-ups through the NIOSH test method to truly get an ‘apples to apples’ performance comparison.

Results: cloth masks, even multi-layer ones, don’t filter well, and they are way less breathable than their melt blown fabric counterparts.

For this reason, Fix The Mask DOES NOT recommend pairing the essential mask brace with any of the cloth mask stack-ups below. Why is cloth a worse material than melt blown fabric for masks? Learn more here.
