3 ply medical face masks available in the market are being produced from various materails considering the manufacturing costs.The most important material is located ib the middle of 3 plies.This material should be meltblown. As it enables an easy breathe its particule permeability is very low in the meantime. Minimum 30 gr/m2 material can  assure up to 98 % protection. However many supplier are using Suponbond material instead, considering it is difficult to procure permenantly this material (production efficiency falls in this case) and Suponbond material is cheaper.It has 30-40% permeability

Conclusion: Protection level of face masks produced by Suponbond material is very low
