Foamtec’s Cleanroom Foam Face Masks are widely employed as under masks in cleanrooms that use headcovers with built-in face masks.

These face masks are not impacted by recently implemented export or import restrictions, so are a more readily obtained mask for semiconductor, pharmaceutical, aerospace and medical device cleanrooms.

Most importantly, the use of Foamtec’s foam face masks does not take supply away from hospitals and medical clinics treating the Corona Virus.

While foam face masks do not have filtration capabilities against viable particulates, the table below demonstrates the low particle counts vs. three-ply non-woven masks. As an added benefit, foam face masks significantly reduce the fogging of safety glasses, primarily when employed as under mask.
