ASTM WK64311

    Revision of F2100 - 11(2018) Standard Specification for Performance of Materials Used in Medical Face Masks

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2100 - 11(2018)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F23.40 | Committee F23 | Contact Staff Manager



    bacterial filtration efficiency; differential pressure; fluid resistance; general use; medical face masks; particle filtration efficiency; sub-micron filtration;;


    The revision is to evaluate the improved Differential Pressure method and determine if the performance specifications in ASTM F2100 would need to change based on a potential new and improved method EN 14683 will be implementing in 2018. In addition, should an ASTM standard be created for Differential Pressure or should ASTM F2100 reference EN 14683 for the Differential Pressure method? To evaluate if ASTM F2299 critical parameters should be clarified or if the method should be replaced with an improved method. In both cases, the performance specifications need to be re-evaluated.
