All harmful emissions and viruses such as emissions from traditional fuels, CNG and the Coronavirus are under PM2.5 (<2.5 micron). COVID-19 particles have a diameter of close to 0.125 microns, and HEPA filters can only filter larger particles that are 0.3 microns and above. Nanotechnology filters confer antiviral properties and help create a barrier from nanoparticles down to 0.1 micron, with >95% efficacy.

 

Nanofibers provide antiviral properties, high breathability and filtration capacity. Nanofibers also make masks more comfortable as they allow more air to pass with a higher filtration efficiency. The main reason for this is physics—specifically, the resistance that the air meets when flowing through the mask, commonly known as pressure drop.

 

Usually, the higher the filtration efficiency, the higher the pressure drop, which makes N95 masks less breathable. However, pressure drop is inversely proportional to the surface area of filter fibres, which is a plus for nanofibers as they have a massive surface area and large number of pores with a tiny pore size. This enables the filter to catch much smaller particles with a lower pressure drop than other synthetic or natural materials.
