Two-way filtration when breathing in and out, the Comfort-Air®Nx, an elastomeric respirator, provides better fit and an air-tight seal for all face shapes and sizes. The N95 and P100 filters can be disinfected, are reusable for one year (use dependant), contributing to 95% waste reduction and 90% cost savings versus disposable respirators.

“With the rapid spread of the new Omicron variant, we need to make high grade mask protection a priority for all healthcare workers, grocery store employees and workers on factory lines,” said Nicolas Smit, Executive Director, American Masks Manufacturers Association (AMMA). “Any public space and business should move to elastomeric masks like the Comfort-Air®Nx to keep schools open and the economy going.”

The White House National COVID-19 Supply Coordinator continues to deal with the Omicron surge, as well as to enhance the National stockpile. Public awareness about reusable respirators is minimal while the environmental impact of disposables masks continues to mount.
