    Second Layer
    A second layer filters particles of 0.3 microns or more, tested for air permeability by the Frazier Air Permeability Method, - 55cfm/sf at 0.5 in. water Gauge.

    Third Layer
    A third layer is made of Polyester non-woven material, thickness: 1.2 mm, containing active charcoal in a concentration of 114 gr. out of a total of 200 gr. Sq/m. - 57% intended to reject air pollution and gas flow, both in dynamic or static conditions. Active charcoal is described as follows in professional literature:

  • activated charcoal are used as purifying and decolorizing agents, for the removal of residual gases in low pressure apparatus, and in respirators as a protection against toxic gases.

  • Tests were conducted on this layer conforming to Standard SAE J 726 / ISO 12103/A Coarse Grade Test Dust, with the following results:

  • With airflow of 10 cub. ft. per minute for 15 minutes containing 16.0 gr. of dust, out of which 14.6 gr. (91.25%) were absorbed by the charcoal layer.
