In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SEA-LECT Plastics has begun producing injection-molded plastic parts for the Montana Mask. We have the capability to rapidly manufacture these parts through in-house design, tooling creation, and injection molding capabilities. Our team adapted the mask and mold design provided by Will Ritter from Spark R&D and then we built the single cavity molds in less than one week.
For Our Healthcare Providers and First Responders on the Front Lines:
We at SEA-LECT Plastics thank you for your effort to stay in front of this pandemic. We have heard the cries for help and recognize the need for additional protective equipment in our communities.
The Montana Mask is not an FDA or NIOSH approved N95 replacement. These masks are intended for use past crisis capacity if there is no conventional PPE available. Please closely read the info available in this document and on makethemasks.com to decide if they are right for you.
- Sizes: There are two mask sizes, small and large. Typical demand is around a 50/50 or 60/40 mix of sizes. The filter frames are the same for both sizes and are interchangeable.
- Mask materials: SEA-LECT Plastics is making them out of an FDA compliant TPE material. Custom colors are available. Minimum order quantities of 250 each apply.
- Filters: We have instructions for using and reusing surgical or N95 masks and precut filtration material, as recommended by the CDC, for use with Montana Masks. Follow the links or click on the graphics below.
- Flowmark provided the filtration material for the first masks. Currently, they are only providing material to frontline healthcare workers and facilities. You can read their statement on ordering materials here.
