Most masks do little to counteract the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but the 5log mask is different. Its fabric renders viruses harmless - over 99.9% of all SARS-CoV-2 pathogens do not survive contact with the mask.
5log masks use the patented Livinguard technology which enriches each layer of the mask with 24 billion charges per square inch. Viruses and bacteria on the mask are held by a magnet and then killed.
This technology is non-toxic, free of harmful chemicals, free of critical metals such as nano-silver or copper and lasts for a long time. With weekly hand washing in cold water, the mask can be used for at least 7 months.
Independent tests proved that our 5log textile technology, invented by Livinguard, destroys 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses
“Innovative textiles for face masks can directly inactivate SARS-CoV-2, researchers from Freie Universität Berlin and RWTH Aachen University show.” Press Release No. 096/2020 from Jun 10, 2020
“This is very clever. A lot of innovation went into immobilizing this technology onto a surface. It seems very effective on textiles. Our labratory testing confirmed that a fabric threated with the livinguard EFM-7 technology inactivates more than 99% of human Coronavirus 229E”. Dr. Charles P. Gerba. Professor of Virology at University of Arizona.
Livinguard Antiviral Technology has been successfully tested over the course of 5 years across different applications. Testing by the Swiss Federal Institute for NBC Protection and NSF International, among other labs, has shown inactivation of Influenza A Virus, Yellow Fever Virus, Rota Virus, Polio Virus, MS2 phage, and FR coliphage. Antiviral performance is >99.9% on average and even up to >99.9999% in some cases, with unparalleled speed of inactivation, as well as durability of performance.
ANTIVIRAL PROTECTION THAT IS ALSO HIGHLY COST EFFICIENT
Because 5log masks are self-disinfecting, they are reusable. They are always free of germs and don’t need much to stay fresh. No washing machine, no detergent, no bleach, no tumble dryer. Just your hands and cold water (up to 30 times).
7 months virus protection
If you wear the antiviral fabric mask daily under normal conditions and wash it once a week, you can use the mask for seven months.
Only 12 cents per day
A 5log mask replaces at least 210 disposable masks. This is not only cost-effective but environmentally friendly protection for more than half a year.
FC Bayern Basketball - Offizieller Partner für Virenschutz
5log ist seit November 2020 Offizieller Gold Partner des FC Bayern Basketball und stattet den gesamten Club (Mannschaften, Betreuer und Management) mit den hoch technologischen Masken aus. Zielsetzung der Partnerschaft ist es den Hallensport bzw. Basketballsport wieder sicherer zu machen und den FC Bayern Basketball bei der Umsetzung der Hygiene- und Schutzmaßnahmen im Umfeld der Mannschaft und auch im Audi Dome best möglichst zu unterstützen.
Mit der Partnerschaft und der gemeinsamen Kampagne #safesports bilden 5log und die Deutsche Sporthilfe nun ein starkes Team im Kampf gegen die Pandemie für eine baldige Rückkehr zur Normalität des Sports. Pro verkaufter DSH Aktions-Maske fließen drei Euro an die Deutsche Sporthilfe.
"The 5log mask makes it much easier for me to work throughout the day because it is comfortable to wear and breathes better, so that I am not so exhausted in the evening".
Leo B. Senior Marketing Manager
"One disposable mask a day before. Now a 5log for many months. A lot of garbage saved - and money."
Marwin L. Creative Director
"Most masks annoy me when I have to wear them all day. 5log not. The material is pleasant on the skin, does not get wet, does not pinch. Top."
The mask makes a very good impression. The material seems valuable and robust. The fabric feels pleasantly soft and is not comparable with disposable masks. Thickness and fit are ideal.
Does the 5log mask with Livinguard technology prevent Covid-19?
In scientific tests, textiles treated with Livinguard technology have been shown to neutralize SARS-CoV-2 viruses. This protection is maintained even after repeated wearing and washing when the mask is used as recommended. However, the use of a 5log face mask is not a substitute for careful personal hygiene measures as recommended by the appropriate authorities. In addition, it cannot prevent infection if it is not worn or if the virus enters the respiratory tract by other means, such as cross-contamination via the person's hand.
Why does the 5log mask with Livinguard technology perform better than filtering masks?
Filtering masks can retain viruses. However, these are deposited on the surface of the mask, remain active there and can easily infect on contact. In contrast, the 5log mask forms a protective shield against viruses and bacteria and destroys them on contact. Over 99.9% of all SARS-CoV-2 pathogens do not survive contact with the mask.
