Authorized by Health Canada for Use Related to COVID-19
Made in Canada by Vitacore, the CAN99™ is Vitacore's most advanced particulate respirator. The CAN99™ is NIOSH certified as a Surgical N95 Respirator, CSA Certified, Health Canada Authorized as 99PFE-L3, and CE Certified FFP3 for Europe. It was designed specifically for Canadian healthcare and frontline workers to provide the highest level of protection, and is now available to the Canadian public. The CAN99™ is manufactured at Vitacore’s Burnaby BC facility.
CAN99™ initial independent fit testing demonstrates some of the highest fit scores of any respirator ever tested. The CAN99™ has over 99% particulate filtration efficiency (NIOSH NaCl test), and a minimum of 160 mmHg blood penetration resistance (ASTM F2100 Level 3). The low inhalation/exhalation resistance creates the best breathability of any headband mask in its class available on the market.
The material, assembly and final product testing are independently conducted by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), McMaster University and private lab partners.
