From the beginning of the global pandemic, we have consumed more than 2 trillion disposable masks that have been thrown into the environment.


and there are currently 50,000 being added every second.

Our unshakeable desire to substitute the disposable culture for ecoefficient solutions has led to develop the etrëma masks, a preferred alternative for companies and consumers concerned with minimizing their ecological footprint.
They complies with the international standard ASTM F3502-21 (for workplaces) which is intended to ensure that the barrier face coverings are meeting the stated requirements to reduce the number of expelled droplets and aerosols from the wearer’s nose and mouth into the air and offer a degree of particulate filtration which reduce the amount of inhaled particulate (Recognized by the CDC – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the ISRP – The International Society for Respiratory Protection).

People wearing an usual reusable face covering mostly protect others around them, while people wearing a high-quality product go one step beyond by ensuring their own protection in addition to prevent transmission risks.

Early 2021 the ASTM International finally approved a new standard for reusable barrier face coverings (F3502) which establishes minimum design, performance, labeling and care requirements in order to help protecting the general public and workers.
Our etrëma® high-performance barrier face coverings not only maintain their efficiency after more than 100 washes, they as well offer incomparable breathability with around 3.65 to 5 mmH2O/cm2 of induced differential pressure (comparable to a disposable face mask).
The ëncore® technology consists of an innovative assembly which puts in use the complementarities of various technical fabrics regarding fine (submicronic) particles’ filtration, and ensures the stability of their performances by protecting them from wear during the many cycles of uses and washes of their extended service life.
But the best is, ONLY ONE ëtrema® eco-efficient barrier face covering can be worn and washed every day for 4-5 months, avoiding the consumption of more than 200 disposable masks!

How does the ëncore® reusable protection works?

Scientific results

Designed for maximum comfort to carry out your working day hassle-free by providing optimal breathability, these eco-efficient barrier face coverings will ensure the highest level protection. To meet the international safety standards, our etrëma® face cover went through a series of tests for breathability, filtration efficiency and flammability.

Ergonomic shape with multiple uses

The 3D ergonomic shape (ËTECH) and the 5-pleat design (ËPRO& ËAIR) prevent your face covering from touching your mouth while speaking or breathing and can be very useful for other situations, such as: Hospital visit, cold or flu, travel, public transportation, pollution, seasonnal allergies and immune system deficiency.

WARNING: this barrier face covering is not a medical face mask as defined in ASTM F2100, is not intended for use in medical procedures, and is not a respirator.
