HTX MASK

About Us


There is a breakdown in the global stock of face masks, and it is a basic necessity for general population in most countries. Local authorities have recommended (or in some areas required) the use of face masks in public.

Despite being useful, you may experience with conventional masks: Poor Lateral Fit, Short Lifecycle (about 8 hours), and an even more serious problem; Respiratory viruses – specifically SARS-Cov-2 aka COVID-19 – can live up to 72 hours on different surfaces. This is a problem since using a conventional mask, at the end of the day we would have a high viral load trapped within millimeters of our nose and mouth, further exposing ourselves to these dangerous microbes.

Our approach is to help fight COVID-19 by offering a low-cost #Reusable, #3Dprinted #FaceMask solution, proudly made in Houston, Texas.

REUSABLE & RECYCLEABLE

You can use this mask any times you want.

The purpose of the HTX Mask is to offer the general population a degree of protection against airborne particles and to prevent the spread of liquid aerosols that could contaminate the airways. The increasing use of single-used surgical masks and N95 respirators will have a detrimental effect in the ecosystem. To prevent this detrimental effect in our environment, HTX Mask will be made with recyclable material.

CLEANING CONSIDERATIONS
1. Washing: Wash the equipment with soap (e.g. liquid dish soap) and clean water.
2. Rinsing: Rinse the equipment completely with clean water.
3. Disinfect: Disinfect the equipment to inactivate any remaining pathogens. Use chemical disinfection if plastic part cannot tolerate 80°C. Different countries have different disinfection protocols. Here are the most accessible chemical germicides and methods:

  • 3.1. Method 1: Alcohol is effective against influenza virus. Ethyl alcohol (70%) is a powerful broad-spectrum
    germicide and is considered generally superior to isopropyl alcohol. Since alcohol is flammable, limit its use as a surface disinfectant to small surface-areas and use it in well-ventilated spaces only. Prolonged and repeated use of alcohol as a disinfectant can also cause discoloration, swelling, hardening and cracking of rubber and certain plastics.
  • 3.2. Method 2: Most household bleach solutions contain 5% sodium hypochlorite (50, 000 parts per million available chlorine). Recommended dilution: 1:100 dilution of 5% sodium hypochlorite is the usual recommendation. Use 1-part bleach to 99 parts cold tap water (1:100 dilution) for disinfection of surfaces. Adjust ratio of bleach to water as needed to achieve appropriate concentration of sodium hypochlorite. For example, for bleach preparations containing 2.5% sodium hypochlorite, use twice as much bleach (i.e. 2 parts bleach to 98 parts water).

4. Rinsing: If using chemical disinfection, rinse with sterile or clean water (i.e. water boiled for 5 minutes and cooled). Sterile water is preferred for rinsing off residual liquid chemical disinfectant from a respiratory device that has been chemically disinfected for reuse, because tap or distilled water may harbor microorganisms that can cause pneumonia. However, when rinsing with sterile water is not feasible, instead, rinse with tap water or filtered water (i.e. water passed through a 0.2 μ filter). Disinfection by immersion is recommended with a contact time of 30 minutes.
5. Dry equipment: Follow the previous step by an alcohol rinse and forced-air drying.
6. Store: Store equipment dry in closed packages.
