Meltblown Polypropylene Filter Material [BY THE YARD]
Note this is YARDAGE. Pre-cut filters for our masks are available here.
By our calculation, 1 yard can make approximately 60+ mask filters depending on size and shape. See our filter pattern here.
Purchase yardage of non-woven meltblown polypropylene filter material by the yard, 3 yards, or 6 yards. Contact us for larger quantities, we're happy to accommodate your orders! Use this material to make disposable filters for your own fabric face masks.

I thought your website was unclear. I thought I was purchasing filter material that would be a layer within a mask, not a one-time filter. I had hoped to have a fabric that was washable and reusable. Just a suggestion to make the product information clearer.
Thank you for the feedback, Sherrida! We'll update the product information.
Bought 6 yards, they only shipped 3 but realized their mistake and shipped the remaining 3 yards at their expense which was good service. However, upon receiving the material, both packs had dirt marks throughout, making about 30% of it unusable for masks for sanitary reasons. The rest was usable, but it felt bad throwing out the dirty parts and this created extra work inspecting the material for dirt. https://imgur.com/a/tTgjyfL
Hi Justin, thanks for the feedback and expressing your concerns. We are cutting this material in a sewing studio, and not a sterile, clean-room facility. While we sanitize our workstations and wear PPE (masks/gloves) while handling it, small fibers from the air can be attracted by the electrostatic properties of the material. I've updated the description to reflect this for future clarity and will be refunding your order as a courtesy.
Since I am not at all familiar with this type of fabric, all I can do is trust the supplier. Unfortunately there seems to be many scams around, but I have put my trust in reviews for this company. Shipping speed was excellent, will buy again when needed.
Use it for mask, so far been testing negative. Thanks volante
This Meltblown Polypropylene material is an excellent fabric for mask inserts. My research indicates that Meltblown produced Polypropylene is the critical filtration barrier in medical grade N95 masks. It also is a more efficient barrier than Spunbound produced Polypropylene against microscopic viruses like Covid (I am not a scientist or engineer just a layperson who has done a fair amount of research online about mask insert options. It appears to me that the Meltblown option is a very good choice for fabric masks). Thank you to Volante for making this product/material available during a time when Polypropylene is in short supply due to worldwide demand. Product came promptly, was packaged professionally and thank you to Volante customer service for your quick, very thorough reply's to my questions. Also thanks for the short video on how best to place the insert material into a mask’s pocket. Good health to all!
