Governments around the world have been constantly passing legislation to combat the air pollution in terms of
- stringent vehicle emission norms.
- eradication of pollution chemicals
- relocation of polluting industries/shutting them down
- classiciation of environmentally sensitive products.
However, with urbanisation and increasing affluence, the pollution levels in cities and towns are on the increase. The only credible solution to this problem is a personal respiratory protection device that can effectively filter and kill microbes, dust particulate matter and pollens.
The answer lies in Antipollution mask - the only effective mask in the world specially designed to offer complete protection to the user from germs, pollens and dust particles.
Surgical masks : These are disposable use-and-throw masks made out of non-woven material and they are good for using for a few hours.
N95 masks: These masks are recommended overseas for filtering dust particles for entering person’s respiratory system. These masks are used by construction workers and those engaged in fumes and smoke environments. N95 refers to NIOSH i.e National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health which is an American institution that has set standards for materials recommended for workers. These masks are NOT medical and do not kill any germs except filtering the air. It has 5% of risk of letting the germs pass through.
Anti Pollution masks: These are Anti-Pollution masks that not only filters the particulate matter and pollens but also kills the microbes immediately. The special fabric and also the special manufacturing method in technical collaboration with Ashtral Inc of USA, makes the antimicrobial layer permanently embedded at molecular level to the mask. These mask are washable up to 50 times. The cross linked synthetic fabric is designed in such a way that it traps the pollutants and microbe and kills it. These masks are CE certified as FFP2 masks. This makes Anti Pollution Mask not only equal but far better than N95 in terms of reusability and killing of germs.
Revolutionary Antimicrobial Molecular Bonding is the most unique technology developed by Ashtral Inc. of USA that permanently binds an invisible antimicrobial layer on cross-link synthetic fabric of masks.
This coating instantly filters dust particles, pollens and germs and also kills all types of bacteria, viruses and fungi upon contact.
These masks are CE certified as FFP2 masks..
The masks are comfortable and have good filtration conforming EN 149:2001 of CE and also exceeding it in terms of particulate matter capture and product life.
These masks are reusable and re-washable and the coating lasts for more than 50 washes. This is an unique feature against all the other masks that are disposable, use –and-throw.
These masks work out to be more economical as they can be used for 1 year with weekly wash. Alternatively, it would take 365 disposable masks which, are not anti-pollution per se

Anti Pollution Masks are the only ideal solution that exist today to save our population against air pollution and air borne diseases.
These masks are most effective, comfortable and have value-for-money.
They are also useful to prevent pollution and are ideal for Asthma patients, morning walkers, construction workers and most important preventive measure against all types of airborne epidemics and pandemics.
