Below you can see a list of certification and independent test reports from world-renowed laboratories and test centres in Europe and the US.
EU type-examination certificate EN 149:2001+A1:2009 FFP2
Independent European certification certifying the RespiRaptor VK as Category III personal protective equipment (PPE), providing respiratory system protection under EN 149:2001+A1:2009 class FFP2 NR. This widely recognised standard is the benchmark for certified PPE in the UK and across Europe.
Viral Filtration Efficiency (VFE) Test Report
The VFE test was performed by the world-renowned Nelson Laboratories (U.S.A.) to determine the filtration efficiency of the RESPILON nanofibre filter specifically against viruses. >99% filtration was confirmed as a result.
Nelson Labs Virucidal Screening Test against Coronaviruses
A virucidal Screening Test to determine the virucidal effectiveness against human coronaviruses over the course of 5 minutes, from exposure to neutralisation.
ACu Copper Measurement Report-EN-201015
Performed by the Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals, this test and the resulting report confirms that 100% of the ACu copper elements are safely contained within the VK mask materials, and are never released during use.
ACu Test Report - General Virucidal and Bactericidal Test Report
Testing completed by the National Institute for Nuclear Chemical and Biological Protection in Brno, Czech Republic. Testing the virucidal and bactericidal effectiveness of the ACu copper against a variety of common pathogens including Influenza and streptococcus agalactiae.
EN ISO 10993 - Assessing Cytotoxicity, Skin Irritability and Sensibilisation
This test was completed by The National Institute of Public Health and is designed to ensure a patient will not develop a reaction with repeated exposure to a medical device.
EC Declaration of Conformity
The EC declaration of Conformity is a declaration of conformity is issued by the manufacturer of the product (RESPILON). It confirms that the product has been assessed to be in conformity with relevant standards and laws, is safe and used in compliance with the listed recommendations, standards, and laws.
The RespiRaptor VK offers EN149 certified respiratory protection from aerosols, solid and liquid particles at a low cost, but it's also so much more. The performance from this respirator will change how you view wearing a protective mask.
The FFP2 RespiRaptor® VK is one of the world’s lightest and most breathable respirators, the whole surface of the mask is a nanofibre filter that boasts several million filtering pores per square cm. The RespiRaptor VK is ideal for intensive work and hot environments. Glasses won’t fog and the mask won’t slip down your face when you speak. The straps are super-soft and held securely in place by a rear clip that ensures outstanding strap comfort over a long work shift.
Thanks to a patented accelerated copper technology that destroys viruses and bacteria, the RespiRaptor® VK can be used repeatedly over a 30 hour period provided it still fits perfectly and shows no signs of wear. The usage time of 30 hours can be split over multiple uses: you could wear the mask for 6 hours a day Mon-Fri without the risk of viral cross contamination in the filter. Diligent mask handling is still required at all times. The filtration abilities and self-sterilisation of the mask have no expiration date.
Independent lab testing has proven that no copper is released during mask use - the patented copper technology is not a coating, but rather integrated into the mask material itself.
Most FFP2/FFP3 masks (those considered effective at protecting the wearer from viral transmission) can lose up to 60% filtration ability after 30mins use due to humidity from the wearers breath. The nanofibre filter in every RESPILON® respirator is not effected by humidity and filtration can actually get more efficient the longer the mask is used (from a 99% starting point).
The RespiRaptor® VK is available in two sizes:
A clip is included to secure the headbands around your head where a more secure fit is needed.
The RespiRaptor's shape is known as the “fish-type” shape which will fit most people. The shape is ideal for:
Please note that if the seal on the product packaging is opened, we are unable to accept returns due to the nature of the product.
The mechanical filtration of dangerous particles is guaranteed by the Respilon® nanofibre membrane. The membrane is a three-layer laminate with an inner layer formed of high-density nanofibre 1,000 smaller than the diameter of a human hair.
on top of the superb protection, a core benefit of the membrane is that it is highly breathable allowing easy unrestricted breathing when in use.
Protection is two way - the wearer is protected and people nearby are protected from the wearer (if being used against airborne diseases).
