Introducing ProXmask(TM): Antiviral Face Mask as Better Alternative to Double-Masking and Capable of Inactivate SARS-CoV-2
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Aug. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

ProXmask(TM) is the first antiviral face mask mass-produced in the Asia Pacific 
by Prolexus Group. The antiviral face mask created by Prolexus Group is a 
remarkable example of conventional OEM (original equipment manufacturer) for 
globally renowned sports apparel to expand the business horizon amid last 
year's COVID-19 pandemic to swiftly tap into the face mask market with highly 
innovative fabric technologies ahead of conventional reusable face masks in the 
market.   

Better Filtration and Breathability compared with Double-Masking 

The U.S. CDC conducted experiments highlighting the importance of good fit to 
maximise mask performance and effectively control the spread of COVID-19.

ProXmask(TM) is positioned as a virus protection essential by being embedded 
with a high quality filtration structure and designed to fit closely against 
the face for a better seal and ease of breathing.  

Innovative Features

ProXmask(TM) is also greater in terms of ease of wear and functionalities: 

-The antiviral function of ProXmask(TM) has been tested effective 99% reduction 
of SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19, other coronaviruses and bacteria, as an 
enhanced virus protection feature.[

-The water repellency feature enables effective shielding from respiratory 
droplets containing viruses and bacteria.[

-ProXmask(TM) micro-filtration technology enables greater than or equal to 95% 
PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency)[

and BFE (Bacteria Filtration Efficiency)[

-Washable and reusable up to 60 times, which makes it an environmentally 
friendly product.    

-Ergonomic design with adjustable earloops, nose wires, and enhanced 
cone-shaped designs that fit well, leaving a comfortable gap between mask and 
lips.     

Dr. Zetty, Research and Development Specialist of Prolexus Group said, "We are 
proud to introduce ProXmask(TM) that will help people feel protected and 
alleviate the fear of COVID-19 infection while still practising hygiene and 
social distancing, especially at a time when a highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 
virus strain is spreading."

The innovative and cutting-edge antiviral technology is supported by a 
well-known European textile chemical manufacturer, HeiQ Materials AG, whereby 
the fundamental of the antiviral technology involves the presence of active 
positive charges on the fabric, as binding sites for viruses. Upon contact with 
the fabric, virus cells that are negatively charged are neutralised, leading to 
the rapid destruction of their glycoprotein layers and the release of 
non-infectious ribonucleic acid (RNA).

ProXmask(TM) is registered with FDA and CE and is also the first fabric mask in 
Malaysia to obtain product certification from SIRIM QAS International 
recognising for its product quality control. The face mask is also accredited 
by internationally renowned labs from Interlek, TUV SUD, NIOSH, and more.
