Pacific: it's all clear.

Updated: Nov 28, 2020

Clear and washable mask available in 4 sizes, PACIFIC always comes in addition to sanitary measures of distance, aeration and surface cleaning.

PACIFIC, like all masks, does not protect: PACIFIC reduces the risk of contamination.

Tested in the laboratory according to international standards in force and in various day to day situations, PACIFIC has many advantages but also disadvantages.

Pacific: you can see me clearly now.

Laboratory test:

PACIFIC is composed of an antibacterial material according to ISO 20743, complies with REACH directives, without controversial substance and water repellent (the polarity of the droplets makes them assemble together rather than penetrate the tissue).

The absence of scientific consensus both on the contamination capacity and on the size of the droplets composing the aerosol, from 1 micron or less to 13 microns and more, forced us to give the protection value for the smallest size.

The results thus obtained in an exposure chamber in a situation closest to reality are therefore:

Filtration according to EN-13274-7, paragraph 6 (solid particles):

13.35 to 55% (FPP2 CE marking tested: 80 to 83%)

Filtration according to EN-13274-7, paragraph 7 (liquid particles):

4.6 to 45% (FFP2 CE marking tested: 79 to 81%).

Pacific testing method

The test method used, derived from the DGA (French Army) specifications, reproducing as closely as possible reality, shows that the performance of an FFP2 CE mask is inferior to that of other test methods, derived from international standards.

The superiority of this method is indisputable and much closer to reality.

It is therefore a mix of international standards and specifications that are used for PACIFIC.

PACIFIC also has manufacturing specifications inspired by ISO-9001 standards and is on test according to ASTM level 1 (USA).

Day to day life:

Faced with the harsh reality, PACIFIC has advantages and disadvantages.

The disadvantages:

- Presence of postilions in case of coughing or sneezing.

- Frequent anti-fog treatment required.

- Sensation of humidity after more than an hour.

- Low protection against aerosols of less than 3 microns.

The advantages:
