Single-use personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to be used only once and then disposed of. While they provide protection against
hazardous materials and infectious agents, they have several drawbacks.
Environmental impact: Disposable PPE adds to the growing problem of waste disposal.
Cost: Single-use PPE can be expensive, especially during times of high demand, such as during a pandemic.
Limited availability: During pandemics or other emergencies, there may be a shortage of PPE supplies, leading to a situation where healthcare workers aren't adequately protected.
Compliance issues: Single-use PPE is often not used correctly or disposed of properly. This can lead to compliance issues and increase the risk of infection
or other hazards.

Our commitment to innovation
We use a material called TP-Z in our masks, which is our own version of Thermoplastic Elastomer. We believe that TP-Z has a promising future due to its remarkable features such as long-term anti-fog properties, recyclability, reusability within the standard product lifespan, and ability to be manufactured globally for local supply.
The material is currently in the R&D stage with a patent pending, and has an affordable price tag. We are continuously striving to push the boundaries of innovation and bring cutting-edge solutions to the market.
