Compromise? Not when it comes to the air we breathe. This is where we draw the line.

At Airllo, we make no compromises when it comes to the air we breathe. This is why we're bringing you the best-in-class membrane-based HEPA technology industry-leading clean rooms depend upon. We call it Spyderweb™ , HEPA technology made for humans.


What is a Spyderweb?

Our industry-leading spiderweb-like membrane can capture the tiniest particles down to the size of 0.075 micron without relying on electrostatic charge. This is the same type of Teflon®-based HEPA filter technology trusted by the clean room industry due to its superb reliability, performance and energy efficiency.

 Spyderweb™ is based on ePTFE, commonly known as Teflon found on non-stick-pans. It is the preferred air filtration technology in high-demand applications such as clean rooms due to its high energy efficiency and stability. It works by physically capturing particles using nano-scale pores rather than relying on temporal charges used by traditional melt-blown filters. 

The first thing you’ll notice after putting on an Airllo mask made from Spyderweb™ filter technology is how noticeably breathable it is, even when compared with other membrane based filters. This is because our proprietary Spyderweb™ filter is incredibly thin (less than 0.0003 mm) and uses millions of tiny pores to physically block out harmful particles all day long.

What’s the difference between traditional meltblown & Spyderweb™ filters?

Almost all current medical and N95-grade face masks are made out of what is known as Melt-blown filters. Most people don’t like to wear those masks  because they find them very hard to breathe in. As well as being very thick, Melt-blown filters can only be used for a few short hours before they have to be thrown out due to a phenomenon called charge-decay. This type of filter also can’t be re-used, disinfected with alcohol or washed with soap. This is because melt-blown filters rely on temporal electrostatic charge to capture small particles, which is similar to how batteries work; once they run flat, they stop working and have to be thrown out. Like batteries, melt-blown filters also have a very problematic and unpredictable long term shelf-life. 

Moveover, anyone who requires daily mask protection would be required to stock between 365 to more than 1000 single-use masks a year. When this demand is scaled across the entire population (more than 7.8 billion inhabitants) for an indefinite amount of time during a biological warfare or global epidemic, we run into a global mask crisis that can never be adequately resolved with the existing technology.

Sorry Genie, Not Today.

We put our Spyderweb™ filter to the smoke-grenade challenge! How will our ultra-thin membrane do against all the infamously nasty smoke particles from a smoke grenade?
