As part of KYMIRA’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we worked with leading experts to adapt the existing technology that KYMIRA is using in our active portfolio technologies, to create NanoFibre air filters. Standard cloth masks have an efficacy for viral filtration as low as 2%, which is dangerous for the wearer and for those around them. KYMIRA’s NanoFibre K-Filter has a viral filtration efficiency of 99.6% – protecting, not just covering.

 

Technology Mission

The mission behind our filtration technology is dual focused. On one hand, our goal is to make a highly breathable mask and filter, that offers true protection to the wearer. On the other, we sought to create something re-usable to reduce the vast amounts of waste being created by disposable masks. In the combination of the K-Mask and NanoFibre K-Filters, we have succeeded in this mission, achieving unlimited use from the K-Mask and 200 hours per filter from the NanoFibre K-Filters.

Proper Protection

Cloth masks cover the face, but do not offer long term protection. The K-Mask, in combination with the NanoFibre K-Filter, offer’s 99.6% viral filtration efficiency. Keeping you and those around you safe.

Fit and Venting

The K-Mask has been designed to adapt to the contours of your face. This improves the fit and importantly changes the airflow inside the mask, ensuring that air passes through the NanoFibre K-Filter, rather than venting at the nose and at the ears.

Comfort

Ear straps suck for prolonged use! We have deliberately designed the K-Mask with head straps that mean that earache is no more! The adjustable Velcro also gives you the ability to tailor your fit to your face and head shape.

Breathability

The K-Mask has been designed using hydrophobic NanoFibres and our infrared technology. This technology combination allows water vapour to pass straight through the filter and then dry quickly on the outer layer. This helps to reduce carbon dioxide buildup.

Heat Regulation

The quick drying nature of our materials means that every time you inhale, the evaporation of water vapour cools your face, helping vastly to improve the thermal regulation and prevents overheating.

Multiple Use

Perhaps one of the longest lasting impacts of the increased mask use during the COVID-19 pandemic will be the amount of landfill from disposable mask usage. The K-Mask is built to last and the NanoFibre K-Filter is rated for 200 hours of repeated use.

Sports

KYMIRA’s K-Masks utilise its infrared technology to bring a mask that is as comfortable and effective for Sport, as it is protective. The infrared fabric offers a temperature regulating effect, that cools the air as you breathe in, and dries 65% quicker than standard fabrics, offering the athlete cooling comfort that is quick drying from sweat or rain.

The Nanofibre K-Filter is made from biocompatible hydrophobic material which is elastic and electrostatic, meaning they are highly breathable and flexible, and will not become wet with water vapour from breathing or sweating. Close fitting and comfortable for dynamic movements, a Mask you can feel secure and protected in. Nanofibre K-Filters can also be used independently in other Masks as fit.

Medical

With filtration efficiency rated as one of the best in the world, our K-Masks and Nanofibre K-Filters are being utilised within Clinical settings to protect both staff and patients. The Nanofibre K-Filters can be used in conjunction with the K-Masks or individually within other PPE equipment. Due to the comfort design of the K-Masks, they are comfortable for long and continued use, with straps that wrap around the head, rather than tug on the ears. Masks can be easily cleaned in the washing machine or baked at 60 degrees to clean and kill viruses and bacteria, with K-Filters easily replaceable for ease of use.

“These masks are incredible! Not only comfy, they are safe, and probably the best and most comfortable masks I have ever worn. And I wear masks for a living! Excellent service. Another excellent product! Thank you. ”

Andrew Jones

“Easy to use Mask Filter Thanks Kymira! What for I hear you ask. Well the excellent Kymira mask and the internal filter. I feel safe, and confident when walking around while wearing the mask knowing I have the extra security of the filter. It is easy to replace (although I have not yet needed to!) and allows you to breathe normally. Thank you.”

Ian Akers

“Well designed face mask I wore the K-mask on a recent plane trip and was very pleased with how comfortable it was. I also had more confidence in its protective ability compared with a regular cloth face covering because of the K-filter. The fabric is very breathable and my face did not get hot while wearing it. The Velcro straps are easy to adjust so it fitted well. ”
