Micron's Made in Canada medical grade face masks are compliant with ASTM F2100 standards. Among other technical specifications, the ASTM level three requirements ensure that medical face masks have a bacterial filtration efficiency of greater than or equal to 98%, which is the highest level of performance under the ASTM F2100 standards. Both Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognize the ASTM F2100 standards.

The company recently shipped its first order of three-ply medical grade face masks to a lower mainland British Columbia municipality and has submitted bids to provincial government tenders.
