What is a 3 ply surgical mask?
3 ply masks have three layers in them. This mask is a respiratory mask. It prevents microbes from entering or exiting.
The mask has a melt-blown material infused in a non-woven fabric. This does the filtration. The different layers are as below:
Blue Non-woven Fabric made of PP Spunbond and is cut into 170 to 175 mm for adult size. The density is around 18 GSM to 25 GSM. Other colours could also be used such as blue, green, pink, white, etc.
The second layer uses a filtering material which is the melt-blown fabric. It uses 25 GSM for normal, and it can use one layer or two layers. It can come with a different filtration rate of N95 or N99. In cases where gas filtration is to be done as well, activated carbon is added. It’s again cut into 170 to 175 mm for adult size.
The third layer is the white non-woven fabric that’s cut into 190 to 195 mm for adult size and has a density from 18 GSM to 25 GSM.
3 ply surgical masks are recommended for surgeries and sensitive operations. And now even to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.

If the mask has:
Earloops: Place one loop over each ear.
Ties: Tie the upper strings in a proper, secure bow near the crown of your head. Tie the bottom strings securely in a bow near the nape of your neck.
Dual elastic bands: Pull the top band over your head and position it against the crown of your head. Pull the bottom band over your head and position it against the nape of your neck.
Mould the bendable metallic upper strip to the shape of your nose by pinching and pressing down on it with your fingers.
Pull the bottom of the mask over your mouth and chin.

Surgical Masks (Face Masks)
A surgical mask is a loose-fitting, disposable device that creates a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment. Surgical masks are not to be shared and may be labeled as surgical, isolation, dental, or medical procedure masks. They may come with or without a face shield. These are often referred to as face masks, although not all face masks are regulated as surgical masks.
Surgical masks are made in different thicknesses and with different ability to protect you from contact with liquids. These properties may also affect how easily you can breathe through the face mask and how well the surgical mask protects you.
If worn properly, a surgical mask is meant to help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may contain germs (viruses and bacteria), keeping it from reaching your mouth and nose. Surgical masks may also help reduce exposure of your saliva and respiratory secretions to others.
While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and your face.
Surgical masks are not intended to be used more than once. If your mask is damaged or soiled, or if breathing through the mask becomes difficult, you should remove the face mask, discard it safely, and replace it with a new one. To safely discard your mask, place it in a plastic bag and put it in the trash. Wash your hands after handling the used mask.
How to wear a mask
Wear it with the coloured side facing out(white side facing in).
Ensure it convers the nose & mouth fully.
Tie/loop the straps around your head or over the ear.
Use two fingers to press the concealed metal wire down to fit the shape of the nose.
