The Spanish company Making Mask has become the first in its category to attain AENOR certification for reusable hygienic face masksMM BIO". The certification endorses its compliance with standards and supports the capacity to manufacture masks in our country, adding confidence among distributors and users on the efficacy of the product. The consolidation of national capacity to produce protection equipment is essential in the fight against pandemics such as the one we are currently experiencing.
The mask is made of nanofibers, withstands 10 washes, and was subjected to tests, obtaining 99.9% bacterial filtration results and a 46% breathability rate.
These tests, conducted in AENORlaboratorio, complement the certification audits that confirm that production is carried out under a controlled system and that there is complete traceability for each production batch in terms of the fabrics and other materials used in the manufacture of the mask.
Enrique Bello, AENOR's director in Aragon, was responsible for presenting the certificate to the CEO of Making Mask, Angel Aparicio, during a visit to its facilities, which have 500 square metres and have the capacity to manufacture more than 2,000,000 masks a month.
