Why did this mask fail?

Review

Video Transcript Speaker 1:
Good day, Lloyd. Good day to you, Alex. These masks come from Cardinal Health Canada, which is a renowned supplier of medical products here in Canada and the US. We provide to long term care facilities, hospitals, and other product vendors. Can I trouble you? That's so Canadian. Yes, of course you can trouble me. That's why we're here, to perform a test on them to see how they stack up against other 3M and other N95 respirators. This is the 3M 1804 VFlex. This is a very popular mask. Now, he didn't send it to me in the packaging. And so we can't make this an official result because I don't know what's happened. Although. There is a weird number on that.

Julie:
Wait, there's holes in it.

Speaker 1:
No, that's actually a really good point. Julie said there's holes in it. A lot of people get worried about holes in masks. These are weld points. They're done using a Sonic welder. So it actually uses sound to weld the materials together.

Julie:
Wait, what does it smell like?

Speaker 1:
I'm worried about smelling this one, honestly, because I had this crazy dream that someone was going to try to kill me or something by sending me weird masks. So if it's not sealed, I don't smell it. That's my new rule. Sorry, Alex. I don't know you. This is the internet. Three, two, one.

Julie:
There we go.

Speaker 1:
And it's going and the breathability is way too good. 39 pascals.

Julie:
That is not good.

Speaker 1:
No, that's good. That's amazing. It's too good. The amount of fabric that's being used here is an insane amount of breathable area. Look at that. You could use this as a little hat. It's a little Julie hat.

Julie:
What the heck?

Speaker 1:
Which means that is like all breathable area. Look at that. And I don't think it's ever going to break. Look that. Try to break it off.

Julie:
I am not going to break this off. This is rubber.

Speaker 1:
Wow. This is so impressive.

Julie:
Yeah. I'm not going to break.

Speaker 1:
This is the best mask we've ever had in this.

Julie:
Daddy look, look.

Speaker 1:
Hold on. Hold on.

Julie:
It's stapled.

Speaker 1:
Let's look at this. Let's look at this.

Julie:
You can't break it.

Speaker 1:
This is the best mask we've ever tested ever in this machine or the other machine. Look at this.

Julie:
99. That is great.

Speaker 1:
99.66 with 40.3 pascals breathability.
