Nanofiber masks can be sterilized multiple times without filter performance deterioration

Posted On: 08/21/20

Both traditional (melt-blown) and nanofiber N95 mask filters have similar filtering performance at the time of first use, but after disinfecting and reusing, the nanofiber filter does not exhibit performance deterioration. In other words, nanofiber filters can be easily sterilized with ethanol at home and reused multiple times.
