Bluffton, Indiana - In a contest celebrating the launch of its C50 respirator, Avon Protection Systems, Inc., part of Avon Rubber plc, awarded the Bluffton Police Department 20
masks and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) approved filters - one mask and filter for each member of its force.
The mask is enormously significant for Avon, which is slowly trasforming itself into a respiratory protection company, with the majority of its sales in the US. The C50 is approved for the US military and the comapny expects to win large orders both from the military and from plice, healthcare and other bodies who need to protect their staff from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats.
"The respirator features an advanced, distortion-free panoramic polyurethane visor that is highly flexible, scratch- and impact-resistant and provides better vision and weapon sighting. The C50 mask's lightweight design ensures superior comfort over long periods in the field, as well as compatibility with helmets and CBRN protective clothing," said Avon in a news release.
The company continued, "The C50 mask's chloro-butyl / silicone blend face piece ensures a better seal and greater wearer comfort. Offered in three sizes to provide a comfortable fit for virtually all face sizes and shapes, the mask can be donned in as little as nine seconds."
