The production of masks includes from polypropylene particles to medical non-woven fabrics, processed by a mask machine to produce export masks, and then undergo strict disinfection and static analysis, and finally become the core protective materials for the current fight against COVID-19. Behind the shortage of epidemic prevention materials such as medical masks is the shortage of production equipment such as mask machines, ear band spot welding machines, and raw materials such as meltblown fabrics, non-woven fabrics, and nose strips.
Melt blown cloth is called the "heart" of masks. One ton of melt blown cloth can produce 1 million medical surgical masks or more than 500,000 N95 masks. 1 ton of polypropylene can produce 250,000 masks. The raw material of meltblown cloth and other non-woven fabrics is polypropylene. This chemical raw material is mainly provided by PetroChina and Sinopec, and private enterprises account for about 30%.
With the development of mask production lines, China's mask production capacity has continued to rise. In the past five years, the output and output value of all masks in China have increased year by year. In 2019, the output of masks in China reached 5 billion, a growth rate of 10.13%; the output value of all masks reached 10.235 billion yuan , The growth rate of mask output value reached 12.57%. Currently, Natural Elements' daily output of masks has reached 15 million pieces.
