At present, there are many counterfeit activated carbon masks
on the market. Even though the skin looks like a dark black "activated carbon" cloth, in fact, these activated carbon masks are only produced and processed by dyes and cannot absorb odors or poisonous gases. The activated carbon layer in a real activated carbon mask is activated carbon particles or activated carbon fibers that have been carbonized and activated at a high temperature.
Identification method: Cut the used activated carbon mask, remove the black activated carbon layer, and burn it with a lighter. If there is no residual activated carbon particles or activated carbon fiber, it is a fake and inferior product with no absorption effect. Activated carbon masks are also respiratory protection products of the type of gas masks. Compared with dust masks, their safety protection characteristics are stronger and their application scenarios are wider.
Activated carbon mask characteristics
Activated carbon masks are used in most chemical plants or chemical laboratories. Is it necessary to use activated carbon masks in all workplaces? This is an incorrect concept. If there is no organic gas, bad smell, or toxicity in the workplace For dust, etc., masks containing activated carbon should not be used to save expenditure and reduce costs.
Activated carbon mask function
The main function of the filter layer of activated carbon masks is to absorb organic gases, foul smells and toxic dust, not for filtering general dust. Therefore, if the workplace only contains dust pollution, please use dust-proof masks that meet national standards. They are economical and comfortable to breathe. You don't have to spend more money to buy activated carbon masks with higher prices and higher respiratory resistance.
