AIRXÔM Reveals the 1st Mask Capable of Destroying Viruses, Bacteria and Volatile Organic Compounds
At CES 2022 in Las Vegas, on 5 January, the French medtech AIRXÔM will unveil the world's first active mask providing protection from the effects of air pollution, viruses and bacteria. This process is made possible by technological innovations incorporated into the mask, the result of 100% French-based R&D know-how.

Formed in Lyon, in 2019, by Vincent Gaston and Franck Glaizal, respectively the chairman and the managing director of AIRXÔM, the company was founded on the basis of two observations:
AIRXÔM: the 1st active, respiratory protection mask
It is in this context, and to respond to these increasing challenges that AIRXÔM is launching the first active protective respiratory mask, the only durable solution which:
The emission of UV rays on a catalyst destroys viruses, bacteria and volatile organic compounds. This patented catalytic process amplifies the action of the silver and copper particles contained in the different filtering supports.
As a result, the destruction of pathogens or pollutants from the size of microparticles to nanoparticles is guaranteed.
The effectiveness of the AIRXÔM mask has been verified by an experimental protocol carried out by independent laboratories with recognised expertise in the field (VIRNEXT: virus; CONIDAIR: bacteria; French National Metrology and Testing Laboratory: volatile organic compounds).
For instance, the virucidal tests carried out by the VIRNEXT Research Technology laboratory in Lyon demonstrated its effectiveness for:
- SARS-CoV-2, 99.94 % destruction,
Production & recycling locations
- Europe: production in France (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region);
Through its returns programme, AIRXÔM recycles all the recoverable components in mask production, to benefit people on low incomes.
- Annual sales of over 100,000 masks worldwide, from the 5th year of launch,
"We are certain that the protective mask we have developed in the past two years provides a simple and effective answer to a whole set of very serious health problems. We will be able to offer the greatest number of people a truly protective solution", asserts Vincent Gaston, chairman of AIRXÔM, before going on to explain: "Respiratory protection is a topic close to our hearts, because of a family tragedy, and we set ourselves the task, day after day, to consider, design and promote the most effective mask in the whole world",
