In January 2020, something happened that caused a shortage of raw materials and personal protective products. When we wanted to buy facemasks, they were already sold out.
So we thought let's just 3D print some! We made a quick design and produced a few pieces. But they were too expensive and very uncomfortable. And, germs like to reside in between the layers, which isn't safe at all.
We decided to scale up the production and use silicone, which is soft, durable, food-grade, and doesn't exploit the resources that other mask makers are using. Then came along our S2 Reusable Protective Silicone Face Mask.
