From what we can see in the images shared by the company, the product looks just like any other filtration mask. The Xiaomi AirPOP is black in colour and comes fitted with four layers of filters. The primary layer on the mask blocks out large particles. The next is a layer of mesh followed by an electrostatic micro-filtration layer to block out particles smaller than 0.3um. Lastly, there is a water-permeable layer to reduce vapour buildup. Using this four-layer filtration system, the Mi AirPOP is said to filter out 99% of impurities in the air.
Further, the Mi AirPOP mask is made from Microfiltration nonwoven fabric and is said to create an adjustable seal around the face using a 3D soft-fit sponge. It also features an air circulation vent in the form of a large vortex valve which discharges warm air and vapour while keeping the pollutants out. Xiaomi says that the mask is designed for Indian pollution conditions.
A box of Xiaomi’s Mi AirPOP PM 2.5 Anti-Pollution Mask contains two mask units in it. Those who buy it should note that the mask is not washable.
