These replacement filters fit the honeycomb sports mask
Replace the filter when breathing becomes difficult or odour comes through, even after adjusting the nose wire. How long a filter lasts depends on sensitivities and environment but can last up to 40 hrs.
Keep remaining filters in the cellophane to avoid pollutants being absorbed.
How to use
- Place the filter inside the Honeycomb Mask so that the top of the filter is in line with the wire in the bias tape.
- Put the mask on.
- Adjust the ear loops to fit your face.
- Press the wire nose grip under your eyes to conform to your nose.
For heavy exposure, one filter may be put inside another. Facial hair may prevent an effective seal.
I Can Breathe Activated Carbon
Statement from I Can Breathe!
To our knowledge: Activated charcoal is created by heating charcoal from natural sources (coconut shell) at high temperatures when combined with a gas or agent that expands its surface. This turns the charcoal into a porous material that sucks in chemicals, toxins or other impurities from its environment.
The small filter bag is cellophane made from cellulose, an insoluble substance which is the main constituent of plant cell walls and of vegetable fibers such as cotton.
The larger Polybags are made from polyethylene, the most common form of plastic, and are used to transport a variety of sealed goods. Polyethylene consists of hydrocarbon chains with the most basic component being the ethylene molecule, consisting of 2 carbon and 4 hydrogen atoms. When ethylene molecules are combined together in straight or branched chains, polyethylene is formed.
