Type IIR face masks are medically tested to provide a BFE (bacteria filtration efficiency) of at least 98%, as opposed to the 95% BFE of Type IR surgical masks. Type IIR medical masks achieve their 98% BFE rate through their 3-ply construction, where large particles are captured in the mask’s layers and do not filter through. As opposed to type II masks, a type IIR mask will include a splash-resistant layer to protect against blood and body fluids.

Do surgical face masks expire? All of our infection control surgical masks do have a use-by date, after which the materials used to make them will start to deteriorate. It’s important to use face masks that are in date to make sure you have the best protection. However, an out of date medical disposable face mask can be used in an emergency. Check the seams and the layers of the mask are intact before you use it.
Surgical mask type IIR is a disposable type of mask and cannot be reused. You should replace a disposable protective face mask regularly. If your mask becomes dirty or if you touch the inside of it you should replace it. The same goes for after eating.
No, the way that a Type IIR mask is designed means that it is only effective when worn the correct way round. This is to ensure that skin is not irritated, that moisture is wicked away and absorbed, and that the meltblown barrier prevents particles from passing through. This also ensures the splash resistant layer is on the outside.
Type IIR UK surgical masks are medically tested to offer protection against infection transmission when used the correct way round, their efficacy the other way round will not be the same.
