To extend the lifespan, place the mask in an airtight container such as a sealed glass jar when not in use. Write on the mask or jar the beginning date to help you keep track of how long it has been in use.
But that's not all - Smoke and smog, fragrance chemicals and baby diapers, beauty salons and airplane air, diesel fumes and hospital laser plume, cow barns and photo labs, from downtown LA to Khatmandu, these fit-in-your-pocket face masks give instant breathable relief.
Leaving on a jet plane, heading out into rush hour traffic, visiting sick friends, why not tuck one of these Pure Non-Scents® Face Masks (with activated Carbcloth™ nano-technology) into your travel kit, glove compartment, or purse.

Silver PNS Face Mask - A special version of the Pure Non-Scents® Hg+ CHARCOAL FACE MASK for people handling mercury, such as metal processing, chemists, dentists, and hygienists. The Hg+ mask has been developed with 100% Activated Carbon Cloth sensitized to adsorb mercury vapor. It also has the addition of a one-way valve to give improved breathability.
Carbocloth™ outperforms regular granular imbedded carbon for a few reasons. Because Carbocloth™ is micro-pourous, it will adsorb 8 - 20 times faster depending upon the type of odor/vapor molecule. It will also adsorb down to a much lower concentration, equating to a cleaner air stream.
Longevity: if kept in a air tight environment, the masks will last indefinitely. As for actual useful lifespan that varies for each application. In moderate air filtration applications, it is recommended to change masks every three months.
PNS Hg+ (Mercury) is only guaranteed for an eight-hour shift because there is no way to insure the user will place the mask in a sealed container after each shift. But if the user is careful to place the mask in some sealed container after each use the mask is deemed effective for several months.
To demonstrate Carbocloth's™ effectiveness on "breakthrough times", the chart below outlines a few of the odors tested. The table identifies a range of smells and the concentrations at which the human nose can first detect them. The chemicals used are those actually found naturally in the products that you identify from their characteristic smell. For example Butyric acid is found in vomit. A sample of Carbocloth™ (8.24” x 12”), will continually remove that particular smell for 473 hours (20 days) and still have 63% of the cloth still active.
Note: These smells are in concentrated form from the time the test begins, versus an application such as a pet bed that would accumulate smell over time. If not exposed to a continuous concentrated smell, the difference would add weeks to the overall sample lifetime.
