14 types of reusable hygienic masks that are currently on the market were analyzed.

The model selected to be used at UPC is the SKUT, by the company ARPE (member of AEI Tèxtils). It is a circular knitted fabric mask, made from recycled yarn from PET bottles post-consumption and using 100% renewable energy.
