BARDA/NIOSH Mask Winner!!!
Air Flo Labs competed against 1,500 other innovative mask designs across the United States and was recognized as a winner of the Biden Administration's Mask Challenge, hosted by BARDA/NIOSH.
This prestigious award was presented to the company in a ceremony led by the Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority on June 24, 2021.
Over 99.8% Viral Filtration Efficiency (VFE)*.
Flo Mask uses Technostat® filter media technology and had it independently tested by Nelson Labs, an industry-leading, global provider of laboratory testing, and the results are unparalleled.
Conclusion: Technostat® filter media is capable of filtering over 99.8% of viruses*. View full test report here.
*Filter media tested to Nelson Labs VFE standards at a flow rate of 30 LPM with a surface area of ~40cm2.
Over 600% more breathable than FDA allowed standards.
Flo Mask was made just for kids. That's why we use Technostat® filter media technology that is specifically designed for a high rate of air flow, while keeping the bad stuff out.
FDA allowed Delta P (pressure build up inside a mask) standards is as high as 5.0. Technostat® filter media is less than 1.0, making it 625% better than FDA allowed standards**. View full test report here.
**Filter media tested to Nelson Labs DP standards at a flow rate of 8 LPM with a surface area of ~40cm2.

Why Flo Mask?
Here's what pediatricians have to say about flo mask
Dr. James Cisco founded Burgess Pediatrics in Menlo Park, California.
Flo Mask is raising the standard for kids' masks. The unique silicone gasket, filtration efficiency, and ability to be washed is unlike anything I've seen.
Dr. Shelly Miller is currently a pediatrician at Burgess Pediatrics. She finished her pediatrics residency at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland and also completed a fellowship in pediatric infectious disease.
Flo Mask is an impressive improvement over current masks for kids. The fit and comfort along with the results of the lab testing make this an impressive product for children.
It starts with the right fit.
Kids faces come in all shapes and sizes. That's why we used the very best 3D scanning technology to scan elementary aged kids across multiple ethnicities.
Layering this 3D data on top of each other, we were able to create a unique shape to our mask, optimized to fit kids as young as 4 and up to 12 years of age. (Patent Pending)
We then focused on comfort, both physical and respiratory.
Flo Mask was engineered with the latest advancements in manufacturing, using LSR (liquid silicone rubber) to create a pillowy gasket that contours along the face for a solid seal.
We designed Flo Mask with generous air flow openings (and no exhaust valve), allowing those little lungs to breathe easily and comfortably through a pure filter layer.
Sub-micron filtration, even viruses.
Flo Mask uses Technostat® filter media technology which is proudly made in the USA, filtering as low as 0.1 micron.
Our unique manufacturing process uses a needle punch non-woven textile that is electrostatically charged, making it incredibly efficient at preventing viruses from passing through.
This spunbond process also makes breathability much better than traditional meltblown filters.
But what about fabric masks?
Fabric masks are great for keeping kids from touching their mouths and noses. However, the weave of standard fabrics and lack of a good seal leave risk of microscopic viruses and air pollution passing through to your child.
Flo Mask was designed with a tight seal ensuring only filtered air passes to your child, and filtered air passes back out.
