Top quality – Made in Germany

As a global filtration specialist and the largest German nonwovens manufacturer, we demand the highest quality from our products. The development and production of medical face masks is carried out in Germany.

Comfortable to wear

The three-layer polypropylene filter medium (glass fibre free) reduces the release of droplets due to its special structure while still allowing for easy breathing. The soft nonwoven fabric offers optimum wearing comfort – even over longer periods of time. Its skin compatibility was rated “EXCELLENT” by Dermatest. All materials used are also latex-free.

Individually adaptable shape

Thanks to their folding design and the nose clip, the one-size masks can be individually adapted to the shape of the face. The round ear loops ensure a comfortable fit.

LABS-compliant materials

All materials are LABS-compliant in accordance with the requirements of test class B of VDMA 24364. This means that the face masks can also be used with confidence in industrial painting environments.

FAQs – Medical face mask

  • Who are Type II (EN 14683) medical face masks suitable for?

    For all companies and employers who care about the protection of their employees and who need a larger quantity of medical face masks. Moreover, due to their Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) >98%, Type II medical face masks are also suitable for professionals in medical practices, hospitals, nursing homes or other healthcare facilities with similar hygiene requirements.

  • In what situations is it recommended to cover your mouth and nose with a mask?

    The use of a medical face mask is particularly relevant when several people meet in closed rooms and stay there for a longer period of time (e.g. at the workplace). But a mask should also be worn when shopping or on public transport, where the minimum distance of 1.5 m is difficult to maintain.

  • How does the Type II (EN 14683) medical face mask from Freudenberg work?

    Thanks to their three-layer polypropylene filter medium, Freudenberg’s medical masks reduce the release of droplets. Aerosols containing viruses and bacteria are largely separated by the mask and spread less in the environment. The Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of medical face masks Type II (EN 14683) is over 98%.

  • How do Type II (EN 14683) medical face masks differ from Type I and everyday masks?

    Everyday masks can reduce the release of particles into the air, but they do not provide sufficient protection against infection. Medical face masks, also called mouth-nose protection or surgical masks, are preferably used in the medical environment and differ in their filter efficiency. If Type I masks achieve a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of ≥ 95 %, Type II masks on the other hand offer a BFE ≥ 98 %. Both types protect people in the immediate vicinity from infection rather than the wearer himself. You can find more information about the differences here.

  • Why is the Type II (EN 14683) medical face mask from Freudenberg so comfortable to wear?

    The soft nonwoven fabric enables ideal wearing comfort and pleasant breathing even over longer periods of time. Thanks to the folding design and nose clip, Freudenberg’s mouth and nose protectors can be individually adapted to the shape of the face. The round ear loops ensure a comfortable fit. In addition, the skin compatibility of the masks was rated “EXCELLENT” by Dermatest.

  • What should I consider when putting on a medical face mask?

    Medical masks should only be touched with clean hands. Therefore, wash or disinfect your hands before putting on the mask. The mask is placed over the mouth and nose so that the nose clip is at the top. Make sure it fits perfectly and adjust the nose clip symmetrically to the shape of the nose.

  • How do you wear medical face masks correctly?

    Mouth and nose must be covered. The mask should fit as tightly as possible along the edges. Take care not to touch your face mask with your hands while wearing it, so that no bacteria or viruses can get on your hands or face. Do not wear the medical face mask around your neck.

  • How often can you wear Freudenberg medical masks?

    The Type II medical face masks (EN 14683) from Freudenberg are intended for single use. Please do not wash the mask or use it more than once. A soaked medical face mask no longer provides reliable protection and should be replaced. How quickly the mask becomes soaked depends on the level of physical activity and the ambient temperature. After use, dispose of the mask in household waste and then wash or disinfect your hands.

  • What else should I be aware of?

    When wearing Type II medical face masks (EN 14683), it is also important to observe the rules of hygiene: Keep hands away from the face and avoid shaking hands or hugging. If possible, keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters to your fellow human beings. Ventilate the interior regularly.
