Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Medicevo’s Graphene Face Masks
What is Graphene?
The simplest way to describe graphene is that it is a single, thin layer of graphite — the soft, flaky material commonly used in pencils. Graphite is an allotrope of the element carbon, meaning it possesses the same atoms. Still, in graphene, the carbon atoms are isolated from graphite and take on different and miraculous properties.
Graphene’s atoms are arranged in a hexagonal arrangement, which creates a strong netting on a microscopic level. Graphene sheets are a mere one-atom thick, making them the first two-dimensional material ever discovered. Despite this, graphene sheets are also one of the most robust materials in the known universe. With a tensile strength of 130 GPa (gigapascals), it is more than 100 times stronger than steel.
Why is a Graphene Face Mask better than an ordinary cloth mask?
Medicevo Graphene Face Masks have an embedded graphene netting which destroys virus particles instead of merely catching them like other common face masks. The graphene netting is woven into one of our Mask layers, creating a microscopic sharp edge that slices through the infectious viruses, killing it. Because of this, Medicevo Graphene Masks provide a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of 98% -- higher than N95 Masks or other masks on the market.
Medicevo’s Graphene Face Mask is antiviral, antibacterial, and self-cleaning. Because graphene technology kills viruses, Medicevo’s Graphene Face Mask can be worn for up to 15 days. The mask's environmentally friendly repeated usage allows for an overall reduction of raw material compared to one-time usage of other medical masks yet is safer than cloth masks.
Is the Medicevo Graphene Face Mask washable?
The Medicevo Graphene Face Mask is not washable, but it can be worn for 15 days due to its self-cleaning nature.
Is the Medicevo Graphene Face Mask reusable, or must I dispose of the Mask after wearing it?
The Mask is reusable for 15 days as the embedded graphene netting slices through germs and viruses, killing them and protecting the wearer.
How many Medicevo Graphene Face Masks come in a package?
Medicevo Graphene Face Masks are sold in packs of 5 and are available in sizes that fit both children and adults. Each pack of 5 masks retails for $39.95.
For how many days can the Medicevo Graphene Face Mask be worn?
Medicevo Graphene Face Masks can be worn for 15 days, before being disposed of.
Will my eyeglasses fog up while wearing the Medicevo Graphene Face Mask?
Due to the breathability feature of the mask – the wearer’s glasses do not fog up.
Does the mask contain any replaceable filters?
The Medicevo Graphene Face Mask does not require a replaceable filter. The Mask is made up of 4 layers, which, when combined, provide the optimal user comfort, safety, and protection against germs and viruses.
How many sizes does the mask come in?
Medicevo Graphene Face Masks are available in two sizes that will fit children and adults.
Is the Graphene Mask comparable to an N95 Mask?
Medicevo Graphene Masks provide a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of 98% -- higher than N95 Masks (95%) or other masks on the market.
