These are excellent products BUT… it is extremely difficult to get them delivered to the United States.
We placed a test order in April of 2020 and it took a few months to get the order delivered. We just did another test order (June 21 2020) and will see how long this order takes and then we will report back. So, when ordering in the USA the orders are done through the company’s European website and the shipping charges are very high…2 or 3 R-Shields costs $30. Hopefully, Respilon will figure out a way to improve distribution to US consumers because we really like these products.
Respilon is a Czech company that makes nanofiber products. Specifically, they make protective face masks to protect against pollution, allergens and infectious diseases including viruses. The company will soon release a new, enhanced version of their masks that includes copper oxide. Their prior nanofiber technology blocks viruses but the new copper oxide technology actually kills viruses, in addition to blocking them.
The Respilon website states this mask is:
“A response to the rampant outbreak of the coronavirus – a unique innovation: nanofiber face mask and respirators enriched with accelerated copper oxide that actively kills viruses and bacteria.”
Both of these new mask products are enhanced with a copper oxide technology that adds additional protection over and above their prior product line. These products are available on a limited basis as of April 2020. Demand is high. The company is taking preorders.
R-Shield Neck Gators (also called R-Shield Scarfs)
The company also makes neck gators using Respilon’s nanofiber technology which also are verified to eliminate viruses as with the masks…but they are currently sold out. Soon (sometime this year) they will be offering these neck gators using the same copper oxide technology in the soon to be available masks that kill viruses on contact… in addition to blocking them. The neck gators come in a variety of colors and designs.
Respilon States the following:
“The Filtration efficiency is equivalent to respirator standards EN-149 FFP1 or US standard N95 as well as EN 14683 – Type IIR Standard for facemasks.”
Respilon’s Filtration Technology Has Been Verified By Independent Lab Testing
The effectiveness of Respilon’s nanofiber membrane filtration technology has been verified by Nelson Laboratories, a leading, global testing lab specializing in expert advisory and testing solutions for medical device, pharmaceutical, tissue & biologics companies.
