Absorbs any light and converts it into a UVC frequency emission of 265nm
UVC level irradiates 3.5” around the mask
Our patent pending UV face masks protect you with a UVC shield. This shield is present after the mask has been charged for 1 hour and 30 minutes under any direct light source and continuously destroys viruses and bacteria for 6 hours.
Why is this important?
“Sunlight or solar UV radiation (UV) acts as the principal natural virucide in the environment. UV radiation kills viruses by chemically modifying their genetic material, DNA and RNA. The most effective wavelength for inactivation, 260 nm, falls in the UVC range, so-named to differentiate it from near-UV found in ground-level sunlight, i.e., the UVB and UVA portions of the spectrum, 290 to 320 nm and 320 to 380 nm, respectively. Nucleic acids are damaged also by UVB and UVA but with lower efficiency than by UVC radiation.”
