Frequently Asks Questions
Q: What is your return policy?
A: For the safety of everyone, we do not except returns, unless product is visibly defective. Masks are sewn in a ISO certified facility, which has the highest quality standards, so defects are rare.
Q: What is Polypyrrole or PPy?
A: PPy is a positively charged textile that is antimicrobial and antibacterial. It is identified as a “smart textile” and is used in various applications including busing power to operating room table pads that warm patients during surgery and in air crafts that use Stealth Technology. The 13 hour conversion process uses a carbon-based conductive polymer that is applied deep into the fibers making its properties inherent to the fabric.
Q: Does the Mask kill viruses?
A: We believe, in theory, that it neutralizes viruses by providing an unfavorable environment. Pintler Medical is currently in contract with a Level III University Dept of Microbiology to test live COVID-19 on the PPy material. When they can get PPE (the supply has been delayed due to healthcare demands) the testing will take place. Study lead is a PhD in Microbiology.
