Meltblown Polypropylene Filter Material [BY THE YARD]


Only 2 pieces in stock!

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.

If you order 6 or more yards, your yardage will be cut in 3 yard increments.
Please note that we are cutting this material in a sewing studio, and not a sterile, clean-room facility. While we sanitize our workstation and wear PPE (masks/gloves) while handling it, small fibers from the air can be attracted by the electrostatic properties of the material.

  • Meltblown non-woven polypropylene filter material
  • 64" roll width
  • Fabric is not washable or reusable
  • See technical properties in table below:



    This material is certified for level 1 ASTM when used in medical grade masks. Since our masks and most hand-made fabric masks are not medical grade, the filter material will not function at any certifiable level. We make no claims about the effectiveness of this filter material in our masks or your masks. Use at your own risk.

    Material is not intended for re-use, so make sure your mask design allows for easy access to change the filter. It may be a mild irritant to the skin, though we haven't experienced it ourselves. Best suited in mask designs when placed beneath another layer of material. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not store near sources of ignition.

    Meltblown Polypropylene Filter Material

    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.

    Good service, but dirty material. 30% of it unusable.

    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.

    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.

    Mask filter fabric

    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.

    Excellent Fabric for Protective Insert

    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!
