Face mask disinfection

With the COBstr Box you can disinfect a face mask for reuse. While the COBstr technology was developed to attain a certain intensity of UV-C the device has no medical accreditation or certification. COBstr decided not to wait for that in the battle against Corona.

How to use the COBstr Box?

No need for detailed manuals.

  1. Open the COBstr box
  2. Hang your face mask in the box
  3. Close the box
  4. Switch it on for one or two hours. For the soft material face masks are made of we recommend a longer disinfection time because the UV-C radiation must penetrate the tissue, whereas with hard materials this is not necessary.
  5. Wash your hands and remove your disinfected face mask from the box.
