The Ulm University of Applied Sciences relies on testing technology from ZwickRoell in the fight against Covid 19

In the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for respirators has increased dramatically. The Technical University of Ulm - initiated by the Biomechatronics Research Group - has put together an interdisciplinary working group to develop a concept for particle-filtering breathing masks at FFP level. In addition to filter performance, air permeability and toxicological harmlessness, the stability of the substances is important requirements for the materials used.

The strength, rigidity and elongation behavior of the selected filter materials was tested in accordance with DIN EN 29073-3 using a ZwickRoell testing machine type Z005 .
