The Australian Made Versatech Hydrophobic face covering is a flexible and comfortable alternative to facemasks. It is an extremely versatile product using hydrophobic, breathable, stretch technical fabric. It can be pulled up over the mouth and nose as a protective water repellent barrier or pulled down around the neck when not needed. It can even be pulled up around or over the top of the head as a bandana for protection against the sun or as a sweatband.
While it can provide a barrier of protection against the spread of Covid it's a product you will want to use long after the memory of Covid fades.
Materials: We use a medical-grade water repellent hydrophobic finish. This finish is tested to medical-grade Level 1 with water repellent outer. The outer fabric passed an independent spray test to international standard AATCC 22-2017 at the highest rating of 100 indicating no sticking or wetting of the face.

Will my face covering be easy to breathe through? All facemasks/face coverings, regardless of the material will provide some degree of increased inhalation and exhalation resistance. Facemasks/face coverings are designed to create a barrier to limit airborne water particles from passing to or from your mouth or nose and this barrier will create some degree of increased airflow resistance. Multiple layers and greater filtration inherently means greater resistance to breath. A single layer paper surgical mask will for example have lower inhalation and exhalation resistance than a multi-layer fabric mask.
