This information is provided for informational purposes only and is not intended to suggest the safety or effectiveness of DESAVO for particulate filtration.
DESAVO face masks have been tested by NPPTL (The National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory), the NIOSH laboratory that operates within the CDC to conduct scientific research, develop guidance and authoritative recommendations, and disseminate information to help prevent disease, injury, and death for millions of working men and women relying on equipment tested. DESAVO is not an N95 mask (also known as a filtering facepiece respirator), and it is not NIOSH-approved.
The complete NPPTL Assessment for DESAVO may be found on the CDC Website here; for ease of reference, see the PDF below:
