Why did this mask fail?


Video Transcript Hey, everyone. Welcome back, where we are testing every single mask in the world. That's why we are testing all 6942 masks that exists and that's a real number. You can look it up. All right. Today we are testing the Uline face mask. Nothing says basic like Uline packaging. Let's get this thing in the clamp and then talk about the box.

All right. Don't get it clamped and let it rip. This is a particulate filtration efficiency machine. If you want to find out more, check out that video. All right. Uline, where are you at girl? I love Uline. It's a great place to buy anything next day. You could buy like all these boxes, you could buy a fridge, Yeti cooler, anything you need for shipping we use Uline. I mean, I probably spend like a $100,000 a month here at Uline. So I love them. They also to sell masks. So I thought let's buy them, check them out and see what happens.

Their packaging is so basic. I love it. And the website is right in line. So one quick note, I am testing the S-1 masks. The same model number except for it's a one. I don't know why they changed it. It probably is the same, looks exactly the same. It's a very basic listing. So the box is a shiny, non soft touch box and open it up. They're going to be sealed right in there. And these are made in China. We take out a couple of these and it's very basic. The edges [inaudible 00:01:49] looks like pretty good quality. They're using these huge stampers. But look at that. You can tell there were some care to that because look, they are very even. Nose wire, little off-centered but not terrible. So overall construction, I'm going to give them 20 out of 25. That's great. I forgot to test the ear loops though. Oh, those are good. Yeah, those are good ear loops.

Uline makes good stuff. They have all these, they contract manufacture a lot of stuff in China, but they're kind of like Costco. The people that they choose. They're really high quality. That's a good mask. You could hold up a baby with that mask. Not a fat baby, but a baby. All right. Let's try on the... Do the smell test. Fits pretty good. Nose wire is pretty good. Oh, I'm going to call this smell boat gasoline. It's not super strong because you're in the water and there's a lot of wind blowing things around, but there's definitely gasoline that was spilled somewhere.

All right. Does any of that matter if it protects you? Let's check it out. 95.176. Good job Uline. Right on the money. They didn't make any claims. They weren't trying to say it was going to do anything but 95% is the minimum protection standard in the United States, ASTM level one. They're meeting that from a PFE perspective. The highest standard is ASTM level two or three, which is 98%. But they're hitting the minimum standard. So I got to give them that. Uline delivers quality, should be their slogan, probably is their slogan.

All right. Thank you guys so much for watching this. If this was helpful to you at all, if you're thinking, "Should I buy those Uline masks?" And now you are because it's incredible deal at $12, shipped to you next day by a Uline guy. Give me a like or subscribe or just stick with me for the next video. Thank you very much [Susan 00:03:49].
