What is 3 ply mask made of?


Surgical masks were once made from a piece of cloth and to be tied around a health professional like a doctor or nurse.

These masks are manufactured now by using non-woven fabrics made from plastics like polypropylene to filter and protect. They are also available in many different styles and ply depending on the level of protection the user needs.

One of the most well-known is a 3 ply mask. It’s made of polypropylene spunbond and melt-blown nonwoven fabrics with adjustable nose strip and it comes with a flat or round elastic ear-loop to give protection to the user. 

It's now used by everyone to protect against the spread of viruses, germs, and bacteria.

A 3 ply mask is made from these components:

  • It has a 1st layer that’s made from polypropylene spunbond nonwoven fabric.
  • The middle and second layer is made from melt-blown nonwoven fabric.
  • And, the third layer is made again by polypropylene spunbond nonwoven.

A 3 ply mask usually comes with a nose strip made from PE wire and a latex-free ear-loop that’s made from flat elastic or round elastic.
