Karam Industries, India’s leading personal protective equipment (PPE) manufacturer, today launched its disposable face masks range to offer protection against viruses, bacterial microorganisms, dust, pollen and smoke. It has unveiled first-of-its-kind RF 01 – RFH 02+ disposable face masks range to offer advanced protection to frontline industrial workers.
The new range has 8 variants of disposable masks designed to filter air contaminants which helps the user to breathe germ-free air. The new mask range is made of lightweight, sweat absorbent polypropylene material that comes with adjustable nose clip for a comfortable fit. These masks are equipped with innovative wrap-around design which covers full face down to the chin.

Designed to offer advanced protection at extended hours to frontline and industrial workers, these masks have three key aspects – elastic ear loop, exhalation valve, and elastic headband to offer ultimate comfort during prolonged usage. Thus, these masks ensure durability of 12-hours (cumulative) with single use for different industrial workers and can also be used for daily activities.

“Given the unprecedented times that we are living in, our foremost line of defence is taking self-precautionary measures, one of which includes wearing masks while stepping out or interacting with others. At Karam, we are continuously working with GoI and authorities to enable our frontline and industrial workers to stay safe as they work towards ensuring the safety of the larger communities. The launch of the new range is our way of expressing gratitude to them and curbing the shortage of protective gear faced by the frontline staff,” said Hemant Sapra, president-Global Marketing at Karam Industries, during the virtual launch event.

“Through these efforts, we will continue to lend our support to India’s fight against COVID-19 also aligning with GoI’s mission of ‘Make in India’ by leveraging the state-of-art technological expertise at Karam,” Sapra added.

Appreciating the efforts of Karam, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said, “Last couple of months have been challenging with the pandemic and subsequent lockdown. All PPE manufacturers had come together to ensure the safety and security of all healthcare workers and public at large by producing highest quality of safety products that are available at all relevant outlets possible. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Karam and their teams across locations that have been working tirelessly in achieving this goal. Karam is a classic example of government’s Make in India with its production excellence and expertise.”

Karam has taken several initiatives to provide support to the frontline workers through safety products amid the ongoing situation. As recent as April 2020, the brand was given a sanction by the Government of India to manufacture protective goggles for doctors and the police workforce across the country and also started manufacturing medical face shields in order to fight the global pandemic. Till date, Karam has manufactured around 18 lakh goggles that have been distributed across the stakeholders.
