3M Health Care launches new high-performance surgical mask
Date:6/24/2008

3M Health Care today announced the launch of the 3M™ Filtron™ 1900 tie-on duckbill surgical mask to meet the needs of clinicians seeking a premium surgical mask. The new 3M Filtron 1900 surgical mask incorporates proprietary filtration media and a rayon outerlayer to deliver increased breathability and comfort, traits highly preferred by clinicians.

Featuring a popular "duckbill" design, the 3M Filtron 1900 surgical mask provides off-the-face comfort and unmuffled speech. The unique filter combination reduces fogging that results from breathing into a surgical mask, and has a lower delta P, a measurement sought by clinicians performing longer surgical procedures.

"In response to customers seeking a higher-performing surgical mask, we are pleased to be able to offer the 3M Filtron 1900," said DeAnn Hammer, marketing manager, 3M Health Care. "We understand our customers' need for a premium-quality mask that can be quickly ordered and received, so we've decided to have the 3M Filtron 1900 manufactured exclusively in the United States." The 3M Filtron 1900 surgical mask is manufactured in the United States of 89 percent U.S. components, 11 percent Austrian components and is latex-free.

The 3M Filtron 1900 surgical mask is supplied by Prestige Ameritech, run by Dan Reese and Mike Bowen, long-time experts in manufacturing high quality surgical masks. Prestige Ameritech operations are solely based in the United States.

"Manufacturing surgical masks in the United States is an important strategy to pursue, not only for the convenience of hospitals and clinicians, but to enable a quick ramp-up on production and delivery should unplanned events require it," said Mike Bowen, executive vice president of Prestige Ameritech. "We are pleased to manufacture this product exclusively for 3M and to help them deliver high quality, high performance, surgical masks to clinicians."
