Understanding HydroCharge™

Why are meltblown filters charged with electrostatic?

The core of every medical-grade face masks is the meltblown filter. Electrostatic properties on the surface of meltblown filters help trap aerosolized particles via electrostatic attraction.

The electret process creates friction and generates static electricity which enables high performance face masks to filter and trap particles as small as 0.1 microns. To put things into perspective, our human hair diameter is approximately 70 microns. Our human eye cannot see anything that is smaller than 50 microns.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), the droplet particle size that transmits the SARS-COV-2 Covid-19 virus is about 5 to 10 microns.

The Revolutionary Electret Method

Traditionally, the meltblown filter is charged with electrostatic by using the ‘corona thermal electret method’. However, the effects are temporary and charges only the surface level of the meltblown filter. That’s why regular face mask cannot retain the highest filtration efficiency for an extended period of time in storage.

This is where MEDICOS re-defines the technology of protective face mask. MEDICOS HydroCharge™ Sub Micron Filter goes through a revolutionary and delicate process known as the water electret method to charge the meltblown filters. Penetrative jets of water are charged into the meltblown cloth at a precise angle, pressure and flow rate.

After the water electret charging process, MEDICOS HydroCharge™ Sub Micron Filter then undergoes a drying process to eliminate excess electricity on the surface, also known as virtual electricity. Once removed, the electret embedded on the meltblown filter is assured to be permanent.

Testing Beyond The Industry Standard

Lab tests have proven that hydro-embeddeding process of the meltblown cloth develops a strong, permanent filtration-enhancing electret charge. It is engineered for optimum filtration efficiency and air flow-rate to minimise inhale and exhale leakages through the edges of face mask.
