Face Masks can support awareness of social distancing and health-related behaviour, both for ourselves and in our interactions with others.
Komfuel have partnered with the premium sports brand UYN to bring you two of their best selling products, the Community Mask and the Social Mask.
It could be that you are infected with Covid-19 but are not showing any symptoms. You don’t know you’re infected, so you could pass the new coronavirus on to others unnoticed.
In order to protect others from infection, you may have to wear a face mask. The recommendation is for as many people as possible to wear a face mask, because this at least enables droplets and particles of mucus to be caught to some extent. The chain of infection is broken.
With our premium UYN masks you can keep training or playing and reduce the overall risk.
The UYN Community Mask fits perfectly around the mouth and nose, ensuring ergonomic sealing at the edges. Its three-dimensional knitting technology make it breathable, and the incorporation of Texlyte Nano means it is moisture-repellent and dries very quickly. It is important to wash the mask regularly at 60 ̊ C. This is sufficient to eliminate pathogens and viruses. The mask should be used by one person only; it is also suitable for sporting activities. Long-lasting and re-usable.
The Community Mask is not a medical product and does not provide protection from infection. It acts as a barrier that reduces the risk of infecting others because it can shorten the range of the droplets that are ejected when people cough, sneeze and speak.
When sneezing, virus droplets can reach a speed of around 45 metres per second without a face mask and fly quite a long way. Generally speaking, people are infected if an infected person speaks, sneezes or coughs in their vicinity. The virus then passes through the air directly onto the mucous membranes of the other person. Due to worldwide supply bottlenecks of medical and FFP masks and the increasing prices being charged for such masks, it is important to ensure they are primarily made available to medical personnel. This is because the recommended safety distance can rarely be maintained by those working in hospitals, homes or retirement homes.
UYN use their own production facilities (made in Italy) and collaborate closely with AREAS (Academy for Research and Engineering in Apparel and Sport) and CeRiSM, they are able to respond quickly and flexibly. UYN collect valuable data in their own laboratories while at the same time carrying out sports medical examinations to test the suitability of innovative products. Research and development in the textile sector has reached a whole new level. Laboratory results can be directly incorporated in the development process. Internationally proven testing equipment is used to carry out tests on fibres, threads and fabrics so as to determine and continuously improve response under load. UYN channelled their entire expertise into developing the Community Mask. We believe the results are very impressive. Try it out for yourself.
Textile Nano fabric
Highly elastic ergonomic nose shape
Flex Ribs for a perfect fit
Flexible and soft ear loops
Breathable 3D breathing ribs let the skin breathe
Particularly densely knitted mouth and nose sections
Highly elastic band at the neck for optimum wear comfort
Tri Dimensional knit construction
The three-dimensional knitted structure is more densely knitted in the mouth and nose area: this reduces the speed or respiratory flow and saliva/mucus droplet ejection. But the UYN® Community Mask still allows you to breathe easily, so the mask can be worn during sports activities too.
Thanks to processing with Texlyte Nano, the UYN® Community Mask is moisture-repellent. This property of the yarn is permanent and is not affected by repeated washing. Texlyte Nano does not store moisture but dries very quickly. For pleasant wear comfort.
What makes Texlyte Nano so special is its weight: Texlyte Nano is 50% lighter than cotton and 34% lighter than polyester, so of all synthetic fibres this material is very well suited for use as a mask. In addition, Texlyte Nano is water-repellent, as well as being recyclable and environment-friendly.
Several sizes - also suitable for children
It's especially difficult to explain to children why they are not allowed to touch their faces. The Social Mask is available in four sizes so it fits perfectly on small heads too. Keeping a distance and washing your hands regularly are still crucial.

2. Cover your mouth and nose with the mask.
3. Attach the straps behind your ears.
4. Position the mask firmly over your nose and chin.
5. Do not touch the mask while wearing it.
6. When removing the mask, be sure to only touch the straps.
