Protective face masks need a way to prevent droplets from absorbing and sustaining prolonged contamination from airborne transmissions.


IST, using our vapor deposition technology, we can sequentially deposit nano-films creating a hydrophobic molecular barrier. This prevents the absorption of droplets into protective face masks and provides an active barrier against airborne transmissions. The video below demonstrates the effect of the coating.


Our coatings provide an additional active barrier against airborne transmissions on face masks, helping to further promote the safety of our valued health care professionals and first responders.

Let’s engineer something better, together.
