Durst produces "Community-Masks" in the Customer Experience Center

From mid-April, Durst will produce masks with an integrated filter function for industrial work environments on the textile printing and processing systems which are located in the demo center in Brixen for customer demonstrations.

Durst has many years of experience with filter systems, as these take on a kind of “cleaning function” in the printing press to filter out microparticles in the ink supply systems so that the print heads do not become clogged and are always ready for use.

The "Community-Masks" have a certified filter membrane (type N95) with hydrophobic properties and microporous structure. Despite the high filtration efficiency of up to 95%, they are particularly breathable and suitable for long wearing.

Which mask with which filtration class (FFP1, FFP2 or FFP3) depends particularly on the workplace environment. FFP3 filters are used in the medical environment.

Despite the filter element used, the masks are not for medical use.
