Introducing ProXmask™: Reusable Hightech Face Mask as Better Alternative to Double-Masking Amidst This Pandemic



ProXmask™ is the first multifunctional reusable face mask mass-produced in the Asia Pacific by Prolexus Group. It is a remarkable example of conventional OEM (original equipment manufacturer) for global renowned sports apparel brand expanding the business horizon amid the Covid-19 pandemic to swiftly tap into the face mask market with highly innovative fabric technologies ahead of conventional reusable face masks in the market.

Better Filtration compared with Double-Masking

The U.S. CDC conducted experiments highlighting the importance of a good fit to maximize mask performance and effectively control the spread of COVID-19.

ProXmask™ is positioned as a premium quality product with astonishing product development standard by embedding high-quality filtration structure and is designed to fit closely against the face for a better seal and ease of breathing.

Innovative Features

ProXmask™ is also greater in terms of ease of wear and functionalities:

  • The antimicrobial functions* of ProXmask™ ‘s are powered by HeiQ HyProTecht’s versatile antimicrobial technology which suppresses the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria which cause unpleasant odors, discoloration, staining, and deterioration.
  • The water repellency feature enables effective shielding from respiratory droplets.
  • ProXmask™ micro-filtration technology enables ≥ 95% PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency) and BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency).
  • Excellent breathability with the use of athletic fabric especially tighly woven polyester allowing sufficient airflow.
  • Washable and reusable up to 60 times, which makes it an environmentally friendly product.
  • Ergonomic design with adjustable ear loops, nose wires, and enhanced 3D cone-shaped designs that fit well, leaving a comfortable gap to ease both inhalation and exhalation.

Dr. Zetty, Research and Development Specialist of Prolexus Group said “ We are proud to introduce ProXmask™ that will help people practice personal hygiene apart from social distancing, especially at a time when a highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus strain is spreading and air pollution rising at an alarming rate in world's cities.

The innovative and cutting-edge technology is powered by a well-known Swiss textile chemical manufacturer, HeiQ Materials AG. ProXmask™ is integrating HeiQ HyProTecht, a textile technology that provides antimicrobial protection against degradation by microorganisms for the mask*. Prolexus also has begun working on testing and development for other cutting edge fabric technologies for new applications especially the upcoming apparel line to be launched by end of the year.

ProXmask™ is registered with FDA and CE and is also the first fabric mask in Malaysia to obtain product certification from SIRIM QAS International recognizing its product quality control. The face mask is also accredited by internationally renowned labs.
