Tuesday, March 16th, 11 am EDT

Presenters: Dave Rousse, President, INDA, and Jeff Stull, President, International Personnel Protection, Inc.

To conserve meltblown fiber for the healthcare sector while using other nonwoven media to provide protection to the general public, INDA worked with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) to develop a performance standard for general public facemasks. Jeff Stull, Consultant to NIOSH and steward of the ASTM process, will discuss the purpose and development of the upcoming Standard, its two performance levels, and test methods. Dave Rousse, President of INDA, will discuss design opportunities created for makers of facemask filter media and facemask designers.
