Norafin Masks

As a result of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the need for respiratory masks of protection classes FFP2 (Europe) and N95 (USA) has skyrocketed. The countries of the EU currently rely on deliveries from China. The federal government plans to localize the production of protective equipment for medical personnel in hospitals and care facilities more strongly in order to limit dependence on Asian manufacturers.

We want to make our mark with this by supplying masks made of our spunlaced nonwovens.

Norafin mouth and nose masks Type B2 – Double layers:

Our mouth and nose masks are made of 2 different functional layers:

  • reduce the risk of infection for you and your counterpart
  • the soft layer guarantees a soft fit on the skin and acts as a filter
  • the stiff layer brings stability and a water-repellency
  • re-washable at 60 °C

Please note:
The mouth and nose masks are not medical devices or personal protective equipment (PPE). They are not certified. Norafin assumes no product liability. The mouth and nose masks cannot be exchanged.

Innovation made in Saxony:

Together with the Saxon company XENON from Dresden, we are working on a fully automated, comprehensive solution that covers the need in Saxony for certified FFP2 masks, but also has the potential to be in the global market as well.
