Micron Waste's Subsidiary Manufactures ASTM Level Three Medical Face Masks
VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 7, 2020 /CNW/ - Micron Waste Technologies Inc. ("Micron" or the "Company") (CSE: MWM) (OTC: MICWF) (Frankfurt: 7FM2), is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Micron Technologies Inc. ("Micron Technologies"), a manufacturer of personal protective equipment in Canada, has met the American Society for Testing and Materials F2100 – 19 Standard Specification for Performance of Materials Used in Medical Face Masks (the "ASTM F2100 Standards") level three certification requirements (the "ASTM Level Three Requirements") for its 3-ply surgical face masks. Micron Technologies is currently utilizing the Company's facility in Delta, British Columbia to manufacture the 3-ply surgical masks.
Among other technical specifications, the ASTM Level Three Requirements ensure that medical face masks have a bacterial filtration efficiency of greater than or equal to 98 percent, which is the highest level of performance under the ASTM F2100 Standards. Both Health Canada and the United States Food & Drug Administration recognize the ASTM F2100 Standards.
The achievement of meeting the ASTM Level Three Requirements is a significant milestone for Micron Technologies that will enable it to continue to meet the needs of the medical industry, various public and private organizations, as well as the general public. Mr. Harvey Sidhu, President of Micron Technologies states, "As society continues to see a second wave of Covid-19 across the world, Micron Technologies has obtained crucial industry standard certifications that allow us to offer medical grade masks that offer 98 percent bacterial filtration. We are continuing to expand our product line of certified medical grade face masks, which are made in Canada, and offering these products to North American consumers at competitive prices. To date, Micron Technologies has received interest from various organizations to purchase its medical grade face masks."
Micron Technologies has also received its N95 mask-manufacturing machine and expects production to begin in October. Micron Technologies plans to send N95 mask samples to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health for certification to be able to sell medical grade N95 masks.
Parties interested in purchasing Micron Technologies' medical grade made in Canada masks are urged to visit Micron Technologies' new website at www.micronti.com or to contact Milan, Corporate Development, at [email protected].
