Bacterial Filtration Efficiency, to BS EN14683:2019+AC:2019 Section 5.2.5, is a measure of the resistance of a material to bacteria penetration.
The Splash Resistance test method to EN 14683, in accordance with ISO 22609:2004, enables a fixed volume of synthetic blood to be directed at high velocity at the center of the mask.
Due to the unprecedented increase in the demand for face mask testing, we have expanded our testing laboratory to meet our clients requirements and time-lines.
We are delighted to announce Anthony Hanson as the new Owner and Director of 4ward Testing Ltd; the UKAS accredited sealant and adhesive testing hub in the south of England.
