CCF Certification

Covid certified filter: the CCF label identifies products that have been proven to meet all quality assurance requirements tied to the label and continue to be subject to a continuous quality assurance process.

CE- Certification

With the declaration of conformity, the manufacturer demonstrates compliance with the directives to third parties, for example, customers or authorities. If all requirements of the directive(s) are met, the manufacturer affixes the CE marking.

Certified products

Certification provides visible proof that a product complies with all relevant safety and quality requirements and has the respective required product features.

EN 149:2001 + A1:2009

Particle filtering half masks must meet the requirements of the European standard DIN EN 149 "Respiratory protective devices - Filtering half masks to protect against particles - Requirements, testing, marking". The German version: DIN EN 149:2001+A1:2009. FFP masks belong to the personal protective equipment (PPE)

Ergonomic design

People use ergonomic design to develop products and work equipment that can be handled efficiently and safely. In the workplace, ergonomic equipment is designed to provide more effective work performance while reducing the risk of injury.

FFP 2

Filtering face piece, a respirator mask covers the nose and mouth. This mask is composed of various filtering materials and the mask anoints out.

FFP2- fully automatic mask production line

Rotection Engineering designs and builds manufacturing equipment for various respirator masks.

FFP2 mask Dodo Air

Fish-shaped mask, foldable and respirable.

FFP2 mask Karla

Particle filtering half masks

Filter performance

The filtering performance of the mask material is tested with aerosols according to the European standard EN 149:2001+A1:2009. FFP2 masks must filter at least 94% and FFP3 masks at least 99% of the test aerosols.

G7 Germany

G7 is an abbreviation for 'Group of Seven. Seven of the world's major industrialized nations are grouped: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The G7 countries have a special responsibility for the future of our world.

ISO 9001 certified management system

The base for this is the quality management started by ISO 9001. This is the most widely used standard for quality management. ISO 9001 defines the minimum requirements for your QMS that must be met to satisfy other quality requirements of your customers and products of service.

(low) breathing resistance

The breathing resistance is the sum of the elastic and viscous breathing resistances. It is created by the flow resistance of the airways. The mask achieves a low breathing resistance due to the grown absorption capacity, moreover, the breathing resistance is reduced to 90Pa.

Made in Germany

Designation of origin products that are produced in Germany may display the seal ‘Made in Germany’

Medical equipment

In the health sector, this is a product that helps people monitor and manage health. Likewise, this protective clothing can define.

Meltblown

The melt blowing: conventional manufacturing process for micro and nanofibers. It is used as a filter layer (filter material) in the partial filtering half mask.

MNS mask

Mouth and nose protection, medical mouth and nose protection

Nanofiber- filter

Nanofiber itself is a synthetic polymer fiber typically smaller than 200 nanometers and often smaller than 100 nanometers in diameter. It is applied to the top surface of a filter material by a spraying process to improve its filtration properties, higher efficiency, and better cleanability.
The filter material is made of mixed paper have been used for decades in industrial dust collection and flue gas extraction systems.

Nonwoven materials

Non-woven fabric is made of fibers of limited length, continuous fibers, or chopped yarns of any kind and origin, which have been joined together in any way to form a non-woven. Fabric and bonded together in any way.

Occupational safety and health

Occupational health and safety, or worker protection, refers to the measures and methods used to protect employees from work-related safety and health hazards.

Palas test bench

Testing and quality assurance in the in-house test laboratory. External customer testing, quality testing, and filtration performance testing. Here you can have the quality of your products tested directly at our premises. With the Palas brand test stand, we offer comprehensive quality testing of your masks and materials. We are happy to perform external testing at the customer's request.

PPE/PSA

With the clear goal of ensuring the supply of the population with protective equipment, PPE Germany GmbH was founded in May 2020. Since the start of production in December 2020, we have been producing at our capacity limits. Our machines and employees have not stood still since then.

Reshoring

Relocation of production facilities from emerging countries back to industrialized countries.

Spunbond

In spun bound, continuous fibers are spun from a melt solution. The so-called melt spinning process is used here.

Transparent supply chains

Transparent supply chains get you an insight into complex processes and procedures of the flow or production of raw materials. A supply chain is an entire process from the customer's order to the delivery of a product.
