World’s First Breathing Mask
A groundbreaking line of filtering masks designed to offer advanced protection against airborne particulates and biological agents.
The exclusive Carbon Nanoclusters coating gives the devices outstanding antimicrobial and bacteriostatic properties.
The masks are washable, reusable up to 30 times.
Model NCN MR2 has been filed and registered at the Italian Ministry of Health.
Medical Device Class 1 Masks
Carbon Nanoclusters masks are a Medical Device Class 1, tested and approved according to the European Directive 93/42/CEE.
The purpose of these medical-surgical devices is to protect both medical staff and patients from being exposed to pathogenic and polluting agents.
The device is registered at the Italian Ministry of Health with nr. 1929079.
In Italy, the usage of surgical masks is currently regulated under the Legislative Decree n. 9 dated March 3rd, 2020, Article 34, Clause 3:
In relation to the emergency referred to in this decree, in accordance with the guidelines given by the World Health Organization and in accordance with current scientific evidence, it is allowed to resort to surgical masks, as a suitable device to protect healthcare professionals.

Carbon Nanoclusters Coating Process
Carbon Nanoclusters are applied to certified GOTS 100% BCI Organic Cotton via “deep coating” procedures.
Afterward, Carbon Nanoclusters coated fabric is pressed in order to retrieve exceeding NCN solution, before being processed through the drying unit.
Carbon Nanoclusters Antibacterial Properties
Carbon Nanoclusters represent a group of compounds made from compositions of carbon atoms which are properly functionalized for different stoichiometric ratios.
Carbon Nanoclusters differentiate from each other according to the bonds that keep these atoms together (covalent, ionic, metallic, Van der Walls’s, or hydrogen bonds).
Carbon Nanoclusters are particularly relevant because of their unique biological and chemical properties. Carbon Nanoclusters represent a bridge between atomic and molecular structures and loose materials. Unlike loose materials, which have constant physical properties, the physical properties of nanoclusters change according to their dimension.
Because of their nanometric size, Carbon Nanoclusters are considered an extremely promising material in order to design antimicrobial surfaces, thanks to their contact antimicrobial action.
During effectiveness tests, Carbon Nanoclusters interacted with bacteria in a cellular entrapment mechanism made extremely efficient thanks to their peculiar dimensional features.
