MainettiCare, the PPE range of the Mainetti Group, has become the official facemask supplier of the Hong Kong delegation travelling to the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games under a partnership with the Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong (SF&OC).

The company will provide 100% Made in Hong Kong high-performance HK96 nanofibre filter 3D facemasks as well as ASTM Level 3 disposable masks to safeguard athletes and officials from Covid-19 while providing maximum performance and comfort.

MainettiCare’s HK96 masks offer better breathability and maintain more than 98% bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE), particle filtration efficiency (PFE) and viral filtration efficiency (VFE) even after 96 hours of continuous use, as tested by Intertek, the independent international laboratory.

The ergonomically designed masks also feature adjustable earloops for a tight fit while ensuring comfort during workouts.

“We are incredibly honoured,” said Paul Tai, head of MainettiCare. “With sustainability being a key focus of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games, the ability of the HK96 mask to be used for up to 96 hours is an important feature, and also highlights our own commitment to sustainability as part of the company’s 60th Anniversary celebrations. We look forward to the many proud moments that our local olympians and paralympians are sure to

provide. We wish them every success as they go for gold in Japan.”

Mainetti is a logistics partner to many well-known retail and apparel brands with its registered office in Helmond, the Netherlands, and 6,000 employees in 90 locations around the world.
