Why did this mask fail?
video transcriptHey, everyone. Welcome back to the place. We are testing every single mask on Amazon and by mask, today I mean, respirator that's right. What's the difference? I will tell you. But before then let's jump in to the MedicPro PandMedic not pandemic, don't get confused, Solutions, but that's clever.
It's like they're the solution to the pandemic. Let's open this up, put it in a clamper and see if we can learn about this mask. Well, that is a big NIOSH logo. So this is a Las Vegas manufacturer that I... It's so weird when we run across a manufacturer that I haven't talked to, that's a U.S. made manufacturer. And the reason why that's weird is because I have a huge ego. Everyone should talk to me. I'm just kidding. Okay. This is a PFE machine, particulate filtration efficiency machine. If you want to get NIOSH approval on an N95 mask, you've got to have a machine like this. Every lot that leaves your factory has to be tested in a machine like this.
So, let's get into this. This is interesting. This is interesting. I don't know a lot about these guys, which again is surprising. I like their packaging. So here's their... You can buy these for 2.70 a piece. If you buy 100, you get a little bit of a discount. Head loop, loop closure. This is a CAN95 style mass that they've added the head loop to it. And then gotten the N95 designation. Let's take a look at this box, this comes individually sealed, I guess, but not in a box, it came in a bag. That's weird. That's weird. But the bag's awesome, I love this little bag. It's a great single sealed thing, which is great. You can put it in your fanny pack or your purse or your boot or whatever. Let's open this up. So you've got the NIOSH logo, huge and PandMedic Inc, PandMedic Pro. You've got the TC number, lot number seven. Wow. That's weird. That's very weird. This is the... The ear loop is supple. It's nice. Did you catch the airflow?
I did, it was 170.
So, the head strap is really, really supple. This mask smells like clean socks, which is not a bad thing. That's not a dig. It just smells like clean laundry. Weird. Wow. That's not a bad smell. And the head strap is just so soft, so comfortable. Pretty good connection there. Trying to... That's strong. I've seen a lot of head straps and this is a unique one. It's kind of... It doesn't stay on super well, but it wasn't going to pull off my face, but that was really easy to pull off the mask. And then the nose wire on it's really, really strong. Most N95s, to get a good seal, have a piece of foam in there and this one doesn't, which is very surprising to me that they would pass N95 without that.
But hey, whatever, it seems like a pretty good mask. But does any of that matter if it doesn't protect you? Let's check out the machine right here. 99.146 99.146. They've got great... It's a great filter in there. I did notice when we were running the test, it has a breathe ability of 176 Pascals, which is actually really good for an N95. I've tested N95s, you've got to be below 250, so that's great. But this is the highest I have ever seen for a CAN95 style. So, the CAN95 style mass typically are below 150 and I've tested... The [inaudible 00:04:20] face mask is 98 Pascals, which is super, super breathable.
So I would probably choose personally, a different mask, just because I've tested so many of these, if you're going to go with an N95. But the packaging is very nice and very convenient. So it might be one of those things, nice to have, like I said, to have on the go because they're individually packed. All right guys, thank you so much for watching. I appreciate you. And if you like this video, give me a like or subscribe or don't, it's not like I check or anything. I check. Eric, do I check?
I check. Catch you on the next test.
