Covid-19 has and is holding us in its grip! One of the measures to prevent the spread of the virus is wearing face masks. But who can still see the wood for the trees?

What types of face masks are there? From which raw materials are they best made and what properties should they have? What about their comfort and fit? 

The Covvid-PBM project helps you screen the right raw materials, apply the best properties and produce the best fit for a prolonged, comfortable and safe use.

We would like to present our project to you during this online event. Keep your agenda free on 17 December 2020 between 10h and 11h30.
