ALPHARETTA, GA, March 25, 2022 – SWM International (NYSE: SWM), a leading global producer of nonwoven media, has launched DelporeTM Advanced Filtration Media – ideal for surgical facemasks, N95 offerings, and other facemask applications.
“We have diversified our facemask offerings to provide various materials that have greater than 95% efficiency for standard flow rates,” said Bart Sistrunk, SWM’s Commercial Director – Filtration. “With our DelporeTM Advanced Filtration Media, N95 material can now be produced with a basis weight reduction of up to 30%. This reduction provides a more economic option for consumers, as well as increased comfort for all-day wear.”
SWM has a long history of supplying high-quality media integral to the manufacture and performance of facemasks used in the dental and surgical sectors as well as the construction and industrial sectors. DelporeTM Advanced Filtration Media allows for better airflow and breathability and is considered ideal for all day comfortable wear while maintaining key performance features.
SWM also offers DelnetTM apertured film, a lightweight nonwoven that is extruded, oriented, and uniquely embossed for use as a flexible surface layer for medical face masks or as a comfort barrier in finger bandages.
