COVID-19 NOTICE:  Silverlon™ material has been FDA cleared for use in antimicrobial wound dressings for burns and wounds.  This material is being repurposed as a face mask.  While the antimicrobial properties are inherent to the material, it is not known how this property correlates to infection reduction or prevention, or biocidal effect on the COVID-19 virus.  This mask is intended as a source control mask for use by healthcare providers and by the general population to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

 

The Power of Silver

Silver has been used as an antimicrobial for centuries. Silverlon uses the power of silver in a unique way, by plating every fiber of the dressing with pure silver. Silverlon has been used in every setting from the battlefield to the operating room, and is backed by multiple clinical studies*.

Every surface is antimicrobial, and in independent laboratory tests, has been shown to kill many pathogens in the fabric, including drug resistant pathogens and fungi.

Silverlon contains a huge reservoir of silver ions, which kill pathogens by at least three different mechanisms. In effect, pathogens can’t eat, breathe, or replicate.

Silver plating is the key

Silverlon™ is a nylon material coated with 99% pure silver and 1% silver oxide.  When silver ions are activated with moisture, the ions kill a wide range of pathogens held within the material.  Silverlon™ has been tested effective against many pathogens, including drug resistant pathogens such as MRSA.*

Silverlon Wound Dressings have been used for years in the military and in hospitals around the world. This technology is battle-tested and has received sixteen (16) 510(k) clearances from the FDA for use as an antimicrobial dressing in surgery, burn, trauma, vascular access and wound care.

The Argentum Medical Silverlon™ Face Mask has not been FDA cleared or approved.  The face mask has been authorized by FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) dated April 24, 2020 for use as a source control face mask by the general public and healthcare providers in healthcare settings to help prevent the spread of infection or illness during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This face mask is authorized only for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of medical devices during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The masks are not intended as personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare providers in clinical settings where the infection risk level is high (e.g., high inhalation exposure or aerosol-generating procedures), do not provide liquid barrier protection, and are not substitutes for filtering face piece respirators or surgical face masks.  While the Silverlon™ material has inherent antimicrobial properties, Argentum Medical makes no representation that the Face Mask offers antimicrobial or antiviral protection or infection reduction or prevention against the COVID-19 virus.
