Melbourne: Businessman Adrian Critchlow to launch a mask for life

The masks feature a layer of activated carbon, originally designed for the British Army for chemical and biological protection, and a P2/N95 filter material originally designed for NASA.

Mr Critchlow said instead of using plastic, like most PPE on the market, his masks used wool with the natural fibre also providing a “highly effective natural filtration with low breathing resistance”.

Soon his ambition will become reality when what he calls “a mask for life” will start rolling off a production line in Melbourne.
