Guidance for making better face coverings

face coverings

Face coverings are now required or recommended in many areas, but quality and performance vary widely - and there is little guidance for manufacturing or selecting face coverings for general use, AATCC reports.

“In response to this situation, an ad-hoc group of industry stakeholders convened to provide some much-needed guidance. This guidance is entirely voluntary and for non-medical face coverings intended for use by adults. Surgical masks, respirators, and other medical personal protective equipment (PPE) are not addressed in the face covering guidance; these items are regulated by separate standards and requirements.,” AATCC says.
The ad hoc group, including experts in textiles, manufacturing, filtration, safety, and testing, met throughout April and May 2020 to develop a draft document, which was then submitted to AATCC for ballot and eventual publication.
The draft guidance is currently being balloted as an AATCC monograph, with results expected by early July. In the meantime, the draft is publicly available for use and comment.
AATCC MXXX-2020 Guidance and Considerations for General Purpose Textile Face Coverings: Adult

Emerging Technology


Considerations included in the draft are intended to help manufacturers more efficiently design and produce face coverings for general purpose (non-medical) use. It may also serve as a useful resource for those sourcing face coverings for general use. This document contains voluntary guidance and practical options for:
Regulatory Considerations
Fit and Sizing Considerations
Material and Construction Considerations
Particle Filtration Considerations
Breathing Resistance Considerations
Laundering and Service Life Considerations
Tie and Ear Loop Considerations
Product Labelling and Marking Considerations
To submit comments or questions, contact Diana Wyman (diana@aatcc.org), AATCC Executive Vice President, or any of the task group members listed on the cover sheet of the draft monograph.
AATCC is a leading not-for-profit association serving textile professionals since 1921. AATCC, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, NC, USA, provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members in about 50 countries throughout the world.
