Mask maker slams Sunday Times' coverage
The Sunday Times had reported: "Diesel exhaust includes nanoparticles of carbon and a range of metals. The particles are so tiny that experts say that it is pointless for cyclists to wear masks, because the mesh cannot be fine enough to block them."
Respro of London, the main UK manufacturer of cycle face masks, has now issued a rebuttal statement: When particles reduce to the molecular (nano size) level they then get trapped by the attractive forces of the pore structure of the Dynamic Activated Charcoal Cloth element that is situated behind the particle filter. The combination of particle and activated charcoal filters in some of Respro's masks really does afford effective filtration at all levels of particulate size.
