Why did this mask fail?
Video TranscriptHey, everyone. Welcome back to the place where we're testing every single mask on Amazon, including kids masks that have been kicked off Amazon apparently since we bought them. It happened. Let's put it in the clamper and see if there's a reason why it's not on Amazon any longer, because... Dsane is still selling other kids' masks.
So, let's open it up, not a soft touch box. It makes me feel not very good. Already a ding. Using a different mount here, for the kids' masks. Trying to be fair, just because the adult mask mount that we have just is too big. Let 'er rip. This is a PFE machine. Particulate filtration efficiency machine. If you want to find out more about how this works, check that out.
We're basically using the surgical mask test here that they use in the United States to hold the mask. So, I'm trying to see if the box says anything because the computer doesn't have anything. So, we got to, we got to look at the box and see if they're making any claims. It says "effective filtering." We shall see. Let's take a look at the mask. What color do I want? There are many colors, so many colors. We got a blue. Is that blue?
This one? Yeah.
That's like our blue.
I've never seen that before. That's our blue. Wow. Well let's try it. Oh wow! That's great! Oh wow... Dude, that was awesome.
I've been working out so... It's not terrible. Breathe in. There's a lot of plastic smell here. I'm going to call this... Inside of a brand new gumball machine...
Because it's a kid's mask. Yeah. It's a medium plastic smell. I've had worse for sure. I should do the pull test, kids like the pull on masks. So, that's not going to break. I have really strong ears. Like I said, I've been working out. So, I'm going to jump on over here. The breathability was off the charts. I've missed it, but, 32 pascals super breathable, which is great for kids. You want... You definitely want, under... I think that's probably a record. I think it's a record, Dsane, it's been a record, but the efficiency's not really there. Now, you got to balance efficiency with breathability, right? Epidemiologists are going to say "anything over 80% is good." Personally, for me, like I want to see an ASTM level two or an ASTM level three mask. So you're looking at 98% or better. This is 90%, 90.3, four, five... Effective filtering... Effective filtering was the claim.
I think I'm going to count that. I think that is effective. Although, personally with the smell and that it's kicked off Amazon, I would choose a different mask for my kids, but that's because I own a mask factory. So I may be biased there on the masks I would give my kids. All right guys, thank you so much for listening to me ramble. I hope you enjoyed this, and leave a comment below because we're actually running a competition. If you leave a comment within the first 24 hours, we're going to surprise you with something great. Putting details to that right there in the video announcement and I will catch you in the next test. Bye bye.
