GRAND OPENING SALE!
WE'RE HAVING A GRAND OPENING SALE! 15% OFF OF ALL MASKS! USE DISCOUNT CODE AIRGAMI-GOS AT CHECKOUT! SALE ENDS DECEMBER 18, 2020!
The Airgami respirator is the world's only self-conforming mask. The patented design gently grips your face to form an air-tight seal that follows you when you speak, breathe, and move your head.
The better seal keeps bad air out so the air you inhale passes through the 95%-efficient PM0.3 filter. This protects you from hazardous air-pollution particles and potentially-infected airborne aerosols. The air you exhale also passes through the filter, protecting those around you from possible infection.
The Airgami mask's better fit does a much better job of keeping glasses from fogging and does so without uncomfortable nose wires or sticky foam pads found in conventional masks.
The Airgami mask works better than conventional masks, whose designs haven't changed much in the last 100 years or longer.
The Airgami filter has more than 2x the surface area compared to most conventional masks, making Airgami more breathable and longer lasting.
(The picture shows a conventional mask/filter opened at the seam and laid flat on top of a flat Airgami filter for comparison. The Airgami filter is much larger and more breathable.)
The Airgami harness is micro-adjustable to customize your fit and adjust the tension of the mask against your face.
The Airgami mask is reusable, comprising durable, water-proof materials that can be cleansed and disinfected multiple times between wearing.
The Airgami mask has a uniquely striking aesthetic. Form and function are one. The shape is both iconic and efficacious, minimalistic yet feature-packed, art and technology.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that more than 7 million people world-wide die prematurely every year from diseases caused by air pollution.
The most dangerous particulate-matter from air pollution have diameters that range from 2.5 microns (PM2.5) down to from 0.3 to 0.1 microns (PM0.3).
These microscopic-sized particles can lodge deep in the lungs if inhaled and cause permanent damage resulting in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is culpable in 6 of the top 10 most-frequent causes of death worldwide.
Independent laboratory testing of the Airgami mask confirms that it can block 95% of these particles from penetrating through the filter while still being highly breathable.
In October, 2019, Air99 was named the awardee of the Johnson & Johnson Innovation - JLABS and BARDA Reimagining Respiratory Protection QuickFire Challenge. The challenge aimed to find the next-generation reusable respirator that could save lives in case of a pandemic.
Only 9 weeks later, COVID-19 struck; the 5th global pandemic in the last 100 years.
In a terrible pandemic like COVID-19, where many people are infectious but don't have symptoms (asymptomatic transmission), you need two-way protection. You need to protect yourself in case people around you are infected and you need to protect people around you in case you are infected.
Surgical and cloth masks can be somewhat effective at protecting people by trapping a majority of exhaled large droplets and aerosols. But they don't fit and seal well enough to protect the wearer from breathing in airborne aerosols.
Airgami protects both its wearer and those in close proximity because of its self-conforming air-tight seal and an advanced electrostatic filter that removes 95% of particles and aerosols down to 0.3 microns in diameter and smaller.
Airgami is also reusable and can be easily and quickly disinfected in a microwave oven without damage.
FIRE AND FLOOD
Every emergency GO BAG should have at least two respirators for each person in the household.
Record-breaking, fast-moving, forest fires are happening more frequently as global climate change weakens and kills trees, creating ample stores of fuel.
Forest-fire smoke contains dangerous particulate matter that can cause long-lasting negative health consequences when inhaled. Surgical and cloth masks provide little to no protection against these particulates.
Only a well-fitting, breathable mask like the Airgami mask, made with a PM0.3 electrostatic filter, provides the protection you need from airborne particulate matter.
Hurricanes, floods, and other extreme weather can damage homes and create mold contamination.
The Airgami filter can block airborne molds, allergens, and dust particles. MCS sufferers can even walk past the detergent aisle in the grocery store without discomfort.
Superior breathability and a comfortable air-tight fit make the Airgami mask your #1 choice for hiking, biking, running, yard work, and outdoor activities where you need air filtration.
Tired of glasses fogging all the time? The design of the Airgami mask virtually eliminates fogging by directing airflow away from your glasses.
Airgami doesn't need a nose wire, so there's no constant fiddling with your fit. Airgami won't wander down under your nose, either.
Airgami adjusts itself to your ever-changing facial contours to maintain an air-tight seal around the edges. The harness also adjusts the size and tension to make that air-tight fit even better and more comfortable.
Don't like the feeling of a heavy mask hanging off your face? The Airgami mask weighs only 0.5 oz (14 grams).
Perspire in your mask? Rinse your Airgami mask in clean water and air dry to freshen it between uses. Follow these cleaning and disinfection instructions.
MADE FOR KIDS
Airgami was designed with kids in mind. Kids' lungs are more vulnerable to air pollution than adults', increasing their susceptibility to lifetime chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), like asthma.
Kids need a mask that seals well and won't leak bad air. But smaller masks are less breathable and more uncomfortable than adult-sized masks. Kids are double disadvantaged by weaker lungs and less breathable masks.
The Airgami mask solves this problem by folding a bigger filter into a smaller footprint that fits kids.
Airgami doesn't need an exhale valve so it protects other kids and grown-ups as well.
Parents will love how easy it is to adjust, put on, take off, clean, and store.
Kids want to wear it because it looks cool.
Move through the world more confidently when you wear the Airgami mask. The superior fit, advanced filter, and adjustable harness gives you and those around you unsurpassed protection.
Air passes through the PM2.5 filter to protect your lungs from inhaling hazardous air. Exhaled air passes through the filter to protect those around you.
Masks with exhale valves are not recommended for pandemic protection. Airgami does not have or need an exhale valve.
Whether you're working at an essential job or traveling by bus, train, or aircraft, the Airgami mask's adjustable harness increases your comfort and protection.
Micro-adjust the mask to fit a larger or smaller face. Adjust the ear-loop tension to keep the mask comfortably sealed against your face.
The Airgami mask and its packaging are durable and long-lasting.
Rinse your mask daily in clean water after use and air dry to keep your mask fresh-smelling.
Disinfect your mask by rinsing it in clean tap water and cooking it on high in an 1,100W to 1,500W microwave oven equipped with a turntable.
Or cook in dry heat in a temperature-accurate oven set to 195℉ (90℃) for 30 minutes. Do not overheat or place in proximity to the heating elements.
When you're not wearing the Airgami mask, store it in the reusable, crush-resistant box.
MADE IN THE USA
The Airgami mask was invented in the USA, prototyped in the USA, and is now being manufactured in the USA using USA-made advanced-filtration materials and USA-based labor.

First off congratulations on creating a great product, having the foresight to anticipate the need for such a product years ago, and making it into a reality just in time. This is what the world needs right now.
After trying out last night and this morning the Airgami mask is vastly "10x" more breathable, better fitting, and comfortable compared to my industrial N95 from 3M. Once you try Airgami you can't go back. Awesome.
While breathing in I can feel the mask tighten around my face to eliminate any gaps in the seal, much tighter grip than what I experienced with the 3M N95 design. That is a reassuring aspect of the self-adjusting origami design versus the static industrial N95 designs.
Our modeling and that of other groups suggest that if about two-thirds of the population (e.g. US or California) can get Airgami it would put an end to the Coronavirus pandemic, plus we would not have to worry about future pandemic influenza or many other new infections that spread by droplets or aerosols (something no vaccine can do).

First—thank you, once again. The Airgami mask is a beautiful little "Thing to Behold" and I get joy from looking at it.
I would like to review whatever directions you have for it. The fact is: it is so much less restrictive to my breathing, compared to my Medical N95, I want to make sure I’ve got it right. It seems too good to be true.

As weird and surprising as it may sound, origami may someday even save a life.
We started Air99 LLC because our number one priority in life ... your number one priority in life ... is to breathe clean air.
The fact is, millions of people die prematurely every year because they don't have clean air to breathe. It's the number one cause of premature death and suffering in the world according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Not to lose sight of the million people and counting who have fallen victim to COVID-19, which spreads when infected hosts exhale airborne aerosols that can travel a considerable distance before infecting another host.
In either case, a well-fitting, 95%-efficient, PM0.3-particulate, air-purifying, respirator is the standard for protection. This is where Air99 innovates.
We are users. When we complain about something, we own it. We commit to fixing it. We dig in and do the hard work until we reach a solution. We are passionate. We don't give up. We are creative. We are makers and engineers. We are business people. We are ethical. We are practical. We are fanatical about quality. The things we make must work and last. We do what we do because of what we are.
We care about children. We love to laugh and have fun! We care about suffering. We committed a long time ago to use our skills to create positive things that reduce suffering, preferably on a massive scale.
This is the philosophy that produced the Airgami mask. This is the philosophy we carry forward into the future.
