On behalf of ASBCI members Freudenberg we are delighted to share their news and data sheets relating to face coverings.


The UK Government is now advising members of the public to wear face coverings when using public transport or when in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not possible. In anticipation of demand from the public for non-surgical face masks, Freudenberg is making its data sheets for non-woven materials suitable for use as outer, intermediary, and filter layers for community masks available to ASBCI members.

The materials include ILC 151  a fine pore non-woven, adaptable and air-permeable, combined in 2 or 3 layers it can be made into a non-medical mouth and nose mask.  In this combination it has been approved by the French, Spanish and Portuguese MOD for use as a community mask.

Other materials and relevant data sheets include materials for filters and inner components for non-medical masks and a water-repellent knitted fabric for use as an outer material for face coverings or as a next-to-skin layer.

Please see the links below to the data sheets:
