In this research, the filtration capability of 15 types of masks and filter materials usable as insert in masks were tested at two different face velocities (10 and 25 cm/s). Four of these masks were tested at two additional face velocities (17.5 and 32.5 cm/s): level 3 surgical masks, two designs of cotton masks and disposable non-medical masks. Seven of these masks were also exposed to aerated simulated exhaled breath condensate (EBC) for 1 to 24 hours and their filtration efficiency was tested immediately following exposure.
