Lahnpaper offers nonwovens for non-medical face masks


Lahnstein, 4th May 2020 – Lahnpaper, quality manufacturer and market leader in the international market for fibre products, produces nonwovens for the production of non-medical face masks (”community masks”).

The various measures to contain the spread of the corona virus SARS CoV-2 have increased the demand for non-medical face masks. Since 27th April 2020, it is mandatory to wear masks in shops and public transport in Germany.

Lahnpaper offers with cuturon® 307.034 and 307.047 as well as varitess® 494.115 and 214.048 different nonwovens for the production of non-medical face masks.

All mentioned grades provide very good air permeability to allow comfortable breathing. The products are printable with specific printing technologies. We recommend printing tests in advance. varitess® 494.115 is washable and suitable for sewing.

We would like to point out that the nonwovens mentioned are only suitable for the production of non-medical face masks ("community masks"). They are not certified for medical products - such as medical face masks, surgical masks, respirators, filtering face pieces - or personal protective equipment.

Lahnpaper has been developing, producing and processing special papers and nonwovens for more than 100 years. Our products are used, for example, in demanding industrial products, unique print products, security documents or wallpaper.

If required, further Lahnpaper products can be tested for the production of non-medical face masks.
