Copperline Masks are made from a world-first patented copper nano-technology knitted fabric. Integrated copper threads have been carefully knitted into the masks’ polyester, polyurethane flexible, stretch fit design providing the most comfortable, hygienic and breathable mask yet.
The anti-microbial properties of copper have been well established and researched.
Recent evidence, published on 17th March 2020 by the New England Journal of Medicine, showed a drastic reduction of the virological presence of the SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 (aka the coronavirus) on copper surfaces when compared to the same virus on plastic and cardboard/paper (Doremalen N.V., Morries D.H., Holbrook M.G., et al. 2020)
Copper, as a raw material, is shown to be anti-bacterial, anti-viral and when used appropriately, safe and gentle to the skin (Barkow G., et.al, 2010).
Copperline Australia recognises the inherent qualities of copper and have the exclusive right to bring this patented copper knit technology to Australia.
Legitimate quality disposable/surgical masks cost approximately $2-$5 each and deteriorate after 20 minutes and end up in landfill (or worse, our oceans).
Our reusable copper mask is much more eco-friendly and costs less than a $1 a day.
Testing shows that the efficacy of the Copperline Mask after gentle hand washing with mild soap is not impacted. Your washable, reusable mask will certainly have a positive impact on the environment and your wellbeing!
The Australian public has been urged since the outbreak of COVID-19 to avoid using surgical masks that are so desperately needed by those on the frontline.
Anyone can wear a Copperline Mask as it is designed to provide general protection all day long.
Our smaller sized mask is ideal for young children to help reduce touching the face with dirty hands.
Currently our product is recommended for general use only. But stay tuned, we believe in the quality of our product and are working hard to seek appropriate Australian approval for our product to be used more broadly in the health and medical fields.
Yes. It has been tested according to ASTM standards (American Society of Testing Materials) – a peak international technical standardising body recognised and utilised by many organisations and health industries.
Test results from The Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI) and Korean Textile Inspection and Testing Institute (KOTITI) can be found here.
It filters 80% and 99% of an average of 0.3μm particles at a rating of up to KF80 (P1) and exceeding KF94 (P2 including the HEPA filter) respectively.
Please note that we are still in the process of gaining Australian approval for use in health/medical fields and at this stage recommend this product for general use only.
Copperline Masks can be washed and reused. We recommend a cool gentle hand wash with mild soap ONLY. Air dry only. Please do not place masks in washing machine or dryer.
Please note: The removable HEPA filter is NOT washable. Washing a HEPA filter will render it useless.
HEPA filter stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter. In the air there are many particles. The HEPA filter acts to remove 99.97% (ASME, US DOE) of particles whose diameter is equal to 0.3 μm.
Please note: The HEPA filter is only designed to be used for several hours
Yes it does! The mask alone is shown to filter up to ~80% at 0.3μm (KF80/P1).
Please note that due to the current COVID-19 situation, export of individual HEPA filters have been restricted. Only one HEPA filter is provided with each mask purchase and cannot be purchased separately from the mask pack at this stage.
Like any superior quality clothing item, your mask should last for a long time.
Unlike copper infused items, the integrated copper nano-technology in our fabric will not wear out and can be washed and reused with no excessive degenerative effect.
We recommend replacing your mask only when it appears to be visibly deteriorated. Say goodbye to single use, disposable masks!
That is the copper!
Our masks come in suitable sizes for the whole family including XS, S, M, L masks. If you think you may be between sizes, we recommend sizing down.
Generally, orders will be despatched on the same business day or the following business day.
Please note: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, International shipping may experience delays.
