Production Updates🏭 + UVMask Lite™ 🪶 Starts Shipping in 2 Weeks ⏰ + UVMask 😷 vs Vaccine 💉
over 3 years ago – Tue, Dec 15, 2020 at 02:10:43 AM

Dear backer family 🤗

Happy Monday!  We have an exciting announcement to make today, plus some great production updates. 

So please read on...

First, the BIG announcement:

 UVMask Lite starts shipping in 2 weeks with FREE US/CA shipping and a total of 20 pairs of filters with each UVMask Lite (10x FFP2/N95 and 10x FFP3/N99!) 

  •  We will start shipping UVMask Lite to all our backers with filters in 2 weeks! And shipping will go on throughout Christmas. 
  •  Orders for UVMask Lite will reopen tomorrow for 72 hours only. Stay tuned for tomorrow's update with instructions on how to get yours. 

Ever since we announced the delay due to new battery certification requirements, many backers have suggested that we ship UVMask Lite™ with filters first, so everyone can stay safe while waiting for their own UVMask shipment.

Our team has been working around the clock with our fulfillment partner, BackerKit, and logistics partner, to ensure that we can fulfill UVMask Lite™ orders ahead of time in an efficient and orderly manner.

Here's a bit more about UVMask Lite™ if you missed it:

 Meet UVMask Lite — The Ideal UVMask Companion

  • UVMask Lite™
  • 10 pairs of N95 filters (included)
  •  Bonus: 10 free pairs of N99 filters 🎁
  • All previous N95 and N99 filters that you ordered with your regular UVMask ship early with UVMask Lite™!

Be sure to watch for tomorrow's big update on UVMask Lite™. 😊

Now, production updates…

Mass production of both UVMask Lite and UVMask is well underway. Our team is working around the clock on rigorous quality control and production.

At this point, all components have been sourced, and assembly is in good progress.

We are eagerly waiting for the new battery certifications, so we can start shipping all UVMask orders as soon as we can.

Rest assured that our team will be working throughout the holidays so that we can ship your UVMasks to you as early as possible, so you and your loved ones can stay safe in the new year.

See our latest production video here:

Lastly, masks are here to stay, and here’s why…

With the encouraging news of the vaccines, many backers are wondering if UVMask will still be useful. So our team has decided to put together a little summary. In short, masks are here to stay and as one of the very first UVMask backers, you will still be able to benefit from your decision for months and years to come.

In a recent New York Times article (, they explain: ‘The new vaccines will probably prevent you from getting sick with Covid. No one knows yet whether they will keep you from spreading the virus to others.’

‘Scientists worry that if vaccinated people are silent spreaders of the virus, they may keep it circulating in their communities, putting unvaccinated people at risk.’

“Preventing severe disease is easiest, preventing mild disease is harder, and preventing all infections is the hardest,” said Deepta Bhattacharya, an immunologist at the University of Arizona. “If it’s 95 percent effective at preventing symptomatic disease, it’s going to be something less than that in preventing all infections, for sure.”

See below a quick comparison table:

Some key takeaways:

  • Current vaccines have only been tested for preventing Covid symptoms, not infection. This means those who are vaccinated could still carry the virus. If vaccinated people are silent spreaders of the virus, they may keep it circulating in their communities, putting unvaccinated people at risk.
  • Since there have only been two months of clinical trial data, long term side effects and effectiveness of the vaccines are still unknown.
  • Both the CDC and FDA have advised children under 16, pregnant women, and people with allergies to avoid vaccination.
  • The effectiveness of the vaccine on possible virus mutation/new strains is yet unknown.
  • At the current production rate, herd immunity developed in the larger population will likely not happen before the end of 2021.

So, in conclusion, UVMask and UVMask Lite will be useful for a while, not only for this pandemic but also for many years to come.

Be sure to stay tuned for tomorrow’s update on UVMask Lite.

Stay well and stay safe!

A Letter From the CEO ✉️ + UVMask Assembly Video 📽️ + Official SGS Ozone Safety Test Certificate🔬🧬 + Updated Shipping Timeline 🏭
over 3 years ago – Tue, Nov 24, 2020 at 11:19:10 PM

Greetings, UVMask Family! 👋

It's been a couple of weeks since our last update. We know you are all eager to receive your UVMasks. As you can imagine, our team has been extremely busy with production, testing, and shipping preparations. Today, we have some exciting news and update to share with you. We will also provide an update on the shipping timeline, something we know you are all eager to hear about. 😊

But first, we would like to share a letter from Boz, our founder, and CEO:


Dear backers, 

We are facing an unprecedented global challenge to deliver a new class of masks that protects you and your loved ones for years to come.  

Wearing face masks has become ubiquitous and is likely here to stay, even after this pandemic. In many Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea, mask-wearing has been the standard practice ever since the SARS outbreak in 2003.  

While we wait for a coronavirus vaccine, experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci said Americans would most likely need to wear face masks after a vaccine becomes available. At a Senate hearing, Fauci told senators that a vaccine wouldn’t change conditions overnight.  Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, “We have clear scientific evidence they work, and they are our best defense. I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine.” 

We started developing UVMask before this pandemic started, determined to develop a new class of advanced PPE, not just for today, but also for the future. We all remember how sudden a pandemic like this can emerge without warning and turn the world upside down. The development of UVMask is to precisely tackle that, giving everyone more preparedness in all future airborne epidemics. Our latest SGS H1N1 test results and MRSA, a.k.a, 'superbugs' (E.coli & S. aureus) prove that UVMask is effective against all airborne pathogens. With its universal efficacy on any kind of airborne pathogens, UVMask is not just designed for Covid-19, but any future threats of epidemics. We believe in the vital long-term value of UVMask. It is, by far, one of the most thoroughly tested commercial masks on the market, and the first of its kind to deliver active anti-viral protection in real-time. UVMask will be a pivotal PPE product not just for the general public, but also for healthcare professionals and industry users, in combating future bio-chemical threats.  

We fully understand the urgency of UVMask amid the current pandemic. Our team might have been a bit too optimistic about the previous timeline amid the current global challenges, due to the eagerness to have UVMasks in your hands, but we are course-correcting with our communication. Let me apologize on behalf of our entire team for the delay, and let me assure you that we are doing our best to fulfill promises and making sure that UVMask meets your expectations and reach you quickly. 

Thank you for your support and patience. As we are approaching the most critical stages of the project, your patience and support are needed more than ever!

Boz, CEO/Founder

The Future Is Here 🤩 UVMask Assembly Video 📽️

After months of hard work, the first batch of pre-production is finally here! Check out our latest assembly video of UVMask.  

In regards to assembly effort, the final mass production will be carried out on production lines which will provide high precision and efficiency. We have a strict quality assurance process and standards in place to ensure every mask shipped is fully tested.

 🔬New Official SGS UVMask Ozone-Safety Test Certificate

We see user safety as our highest priority. There's no other mask project that has done this many safety and efficacy tests. Some of our tests are also an industry first, such as our previous SGS H1N1 test report eliminating 96% viruses in a mere 0.08 seconds!

This recent SGS Lab test further confirms that your UVMask is 100% ozone-safe, amongst many other safety results. (P stands for 'Pass')  So safe that based on industry safety standards, the ozone test is exempted because the effective irradiance from wavelengths less than 250 nm in UVMask is no more than 1% of that generated in the 250- 400 nm bands! 🥳

What does this mean?

To put it in simpler terms, UVMask generates a very pure and narrow range of UV-C. According to the SGS lab test is incapable of generating ozone.

Are you interested in the results? Download and check out the lab test report: See Full certificate here

🏭 Behind the Scenes: Production Update & New Video

UVMask team is working round the clock to make everything (including the impossible) possible to bring your mask to you!  We understand your desire to have UVMask in your hands as soon as possible and we are doing all to make it happen as fast as possible.

Here's a glimpse of the production work behind the scene:

 🗓 Timeline & Shipping: What's the Latest?

The Google Sheet, a.k.a, Gantt Chart

In light of transparency, we have done something no other project has ever done before! – that is to share with you a live view of our timeline (updated) – what's happening behind the scenes day in and day out. It has proven to be a helpful tool in communicating the latest progress and setting up expectations. 

Some Timeline Setbacks – New Certification Requirements for Logistics

Now that we are moving from pre-production to mass production, we are working closely with our shipping partners on logistic requirements. 

With the new and tightened air-shipping regulations, we are now required to obtain the following new certifications:

What does this mean to the shipping timeline?

We are working closely with our official testing and certification partners, such as SGS. With the upcoming holidays, the above tests will likely add 30-45 calendar days to the overall timeline.  

You have promised us Nov shipping, then why the change? 

This has indeed come to us as a surprise, as our original timeline was built based on the assumption that our battery supplier's existing certifications would be sufficient (which have all been completed beforehand).  It turns out that each new product needs to acquire brand new tests and certifications based on the new and stricter air shipping regulations.  

Our team would like to sincerely apologize for the delay and we want to ensure you that we are doing everything we can to keep the process transparent and the production/shipping as speedy as possible.  

So where we currently stand? 

  • We expect the majority of shipments to commence in late Jan 2021 
  • We work closely with a 3PL partner that provides a comprehensive and most optimized shipping solution, utilizing different couriers for different regions. 
  • Tracking codes will be provided once shipped, so you will be able to track your packages and see where they are. 

How confident are you with the new shipping timeline?

As production is moving along as planned, our last hurdles are shipping and logistic requirements. We are very confident Jan timeline is achievable. This also allows us ample time to further test UVMask to ensure everyone receives a robust and effective product (yes Covid-19 test is being planned).  

 🙏 Your Patience and Support are Needed More Than Ever!

We understand your frustration. As we are approaching the most critical stages of the project, your patience and support are needed more than ever!

Our team has been working non-stop to provide all of you with the most up to date and transparent information possible, our team really need your patience and trust, to bear with us while we focus on production and certifications. 

We are all in this together, and as the first backers, you get the chance to witness a truly important and groundbreaking PPE product to take shape and come to life. Be patient with us and trust us to have your safety and well-being as our highest priority. 

Thank you. Stay safe. And stay tuned for more updates. ❤️

New SGS Test Result - Inactivating H1N1 in 0.08 sec 🤩 + Recent White Paper 📓 and Production/Timeline Updates 🏭
over 3 years ago – Mon, Oct 26, 2020 at 03:01:32 AM

Hey, Amazing UVMask People! 👋

It's been a while since you've heard from us, and here we are with some really cool 😎 news!

As the first company to effectively integrate UV-C technology into a mask, we are committed to advancing the technology and ensuring higher protection levels for you and your loved ones. And that is the reason we are constantly testing UVMask against various viruses.

UVMask was designed to be one of the most effective PPE on the market against ALL airborne pathogens, including Covid-19 and influenza. Our latest official SGS test report is about UVMask effectiveness in inactivating the H1N1 (A/H1N1pdm09 or "swine flu") virus, the virus that caused the 2009 swine flu pandemic. And the results are in...

🤩 UVMask inactivates 96% of H1N1 in just 0.08 seconds...

That's right! Recent SGS Labs validates the effectiveness of UM Systems'  Sterile-Vortex in UVMask on inactivating H1N1 in just 0.08 seconds. That’s less than 1/12 of a second, faster than a blink of an eye! ⚡️

In cooperation with industry-leading SGS laboratory, the test was to validate the effectiveness of UV-C powered Sterile-Vortex™ on the inactivation of H1N1 influenza A virus (the same virus that caused the 2009 swine flu pandemic). H1N1 virus also shares many similarities with the Sars-Cov-2 virus that caused the current Covid-19 pandemic. So this test is also a good indication of how effective UVMask is against Covid-19.

The potent o-zone free UV-C technology within UVMask, on average, inactivates an impressive 96% (>1.5 logs) of H1N1 viruses in just 0.08 seconds, using roughly half the time air travels in  the vortex. This is, by far, the most effective and speedy result presented in a UV-C consumer product. (The next best result was 96% inactivation of coronavirus in 3 seconds, 37.5 times longer! done by a Dutch company:

What does the outcome mean?

These initial findings suggest that UVMask is extremely effective against airborne viruses, even in roughly half the time air travels through the vortex, including Sars-Cov-2, the novel coronavirus that’s responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, as the dosage to inactivate Sars-Cov-2 virus is similar to that of H1N1 influenza virus.

The official test report can be found here for detailed information

📓 Our White Paper is Here!

Viruses are spreading around the world and mutating faster than we can imagine, and while pharmacological laboratories work on the development of vaccines and medications, traditional methods are always falling a couple of steps behind. And before the medical community can figure out how to contain and/or eliminate it, the biotech community is actively working to develop early preventive measures — tech equipped PPEs and sanitization tools to combat the pandemics.

UM Systems' recent White Paper explores the new challenges in light of current healthcare situations around the world and integrates detailed explanations on the usage of the UV-C technology within UVMask. Furthermore, it describes how UVMask makes use of technology that, for the first time, has been miniaturized to fit within a wearable PPE and actively protect the wearer from the constant flow of pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. Based on the findings presented in the White Paper, UVMask could prove to be one of the most effective and universal protection mechanism for the population from the SARs-Cov-2 and other future pandemics.

🤔 Production/Timeline Updates?

For the past week, we have been receiving messages from our backers inquiring about the shipping updates.

We all know you are looking forward to receiving your UVMask. Taking the new norm's challenges into consideration, we are doing our best to stay on timeline and ship UVMasks to you as fast as we can.

We have updated our time table we shared with you in our last update. As always, you can find the latest schedule here: UVMask Production Timeline

Our original plan was to start shipping a small batch by the end of this month (for Beta-Testing) before we ship to the majority of backers in Nov. This has since been revised, here are some highlights:

  1. Even though the current resurgence of Covid-19 cases globally hasn’t impacted our manufacturing facilities (we are operating fully without disruption), it did impact our global suppliers such as Japan and the UK.
  2. Due to this, unfortunately, we are seeing about a 2-4 week delay 😭 on crucial components. But the good news is that now all component shipments have been secured and the delivery timeframe confirmed. We are not expecting any further delays moving forward.
  3. We are shipping out the first batch of product samples for beta-test and journalist reviews in about two weeks (stay tuned for beta-test reviews). 🤞🚀
  4. The majority of shipments are expected to commence in late November.
  5. Shipments will be directly from our manufacturing facilities by air courier (at no extra charge), so no need to wait for lengthy sea freight.

We fully understand the urgency to have these masks in your hands, so you and your loved ones can be better protected. It has always been our top priority to deliver the best quality with the earliest possible shipments.

 Some Production Previews 🏭 

We will periodically share some production scenes so you can see first hand how UVMask comes to life. The following video clips are from the process of our cutting edge high-intensity UV-C LED production line. This process assembles the UV-C LED chips with high precision optics and prepares them for vortex assembly. 😍

Stay tuned for more.

Final Design Revealed 🤩 Better Filters and More Robust 🚀 Ozone Safety Test 🧬🔬 Latest Production and Shipping Timeline🗓
over 3 years ago – Wed, Sep 30, 2020 at 01:14:04 AM

Hey, UVMask Family! 👋

How are you doing today? Hope you are all staying safe and healthy. 🙏

A New Milestone 🚀

September 25th marked the three-month anniversary of the launch of our Kickstarter campaign. It's been amazing three months, thanks to your incredible support and ongoing encouragement. With your support and trust, UM Systems have grown stronger and bigger. Thank you!

We have some exciting updates to share with you today! So please read on... 😊

 First, BackerKit Survey - 84% Completed. 

At the time this update is posted, about 12,126 of you have filled in our BackerKit surveys, that's a whopping 84% of the UVMask community! Well done! 🏅

Thank you for your prompt reply and for your time. Your responses help us get prepared for production and shipping.

If you have not filled in the survey yet, check out your email -- Every possible folder you have there -- inbox, promotion, spam, junk, or Kickstarter( I do have a folder like that).

In case you still cannot find the link, no worries, update your email address through the BackerKit Lost Survey solutions:

Final Design Reveal: Dual Filters are Here! Yes, Dual Filters! 🔥

Regular disposable surgical masks attempt to protect you by filtering air through 3 layers. But due to their material and poor fit — the gaps around your nose, chin, and cheeks — much of the air you breathe is not filtered. UVMask forms an airtight seal around your mouth and nose thanks to its skin-friendly silicone inner mask. All air is passed through 2 high-efficiency layers of protection: high-efficiency air filters and world-first active UV-C realtime air sterilization module. 

Since day one, we have been working closely with the science and engineering community, as well as our backers, to make UVMask better. We reached and exceeded our funding goal, but we didn't stop there! We continued with improvements and made UVMask an even better product than it was initially introduced to you. 💪

Today, we are extremely excited to share the final design, with some amazing new upgrades (yes, you will receive UVMasks with these upgrades at no extra costs!) 🥳

 Two Filters are Better Than One 🚀🧬

The first stage of protection of UVMask is a high-efficiency passive air filter. The advanced filtration system blocks 0.1-0.3 microns particles, including dust, smoke, pollen, smoke, pollutants, particles, and pathogens up to 100x smaller than a grain of flour!

The all-new filter design now offers TWO separate filters for air intake and air output so that you can now use different filters for air-in and air-out, allowing extra protection where you need it. For example, for better breathability, you can use an FFP2/N95 filter, while using an FFP3/N99 filter for exhaling, so that your loved ones and people surrounding you are better protected. Each filter is individually replaceable and sealed by a more secure airtight screw-on filter mount. 

 What About the Filters I've Ordered? We Got You Covered! 😍

Now you might ask since UVMask uses two filters instead of one, does that mean I will need to order twice as many filters? Don't worry, we have you covered! 

 Double the Filters, No Extra Costs 

As of today, ALL Kickstarter backers will receive DOUBLE the amount of filters, free of charge! For example, if you have ordered 50x filters, instead of receiving just 50, you will now receive 50 pairs of filters, no extra charge!

Double the Filter Mounts

If you have ordered filter mounts, the number of mounts included will also be automatically doubled without extra charge

 An Even More Robust Inner Chamber Design 🚀🔥

As we move into production, our engineering team has put a tremendous amount of effort into making sure every single detail of the end product is near perfect. The final design has a much more robust, shock and water-resistant design, and even better heat dissipation. 

A 20,000 RPM fan is now placed at the bottom of the mask, ensuring vertical ventilation and the most optimal breathability in all situations. 

 Ozone Safety Test 🧬🧑‍🎓

UVMask now uses 275nm wavelength UV-C LEDs (the safest yet most effective UV-C wavelength, which reliably generates a very pure and narrow range of UV-C that does not go shorter than 255nm. UV-C at this narrow pure range has been empirically tested to be incapable of generating ozone. Each UVMask is factory-tested for its UV-C wavelength purity to ensure its high safety standard.

We did an ozone safety comparison test between UVMask and a common UV  disinfection device on the market. Both devices were placed in an airtight chamber during full operation, and the ozone level was measured using a high sensitivity ozone detector over a longer period of time.  UVMask test shows ozone Concentration is consistently zero, indicating that no ozone is produced by UVMask. 🔬🥳

 Latest Production Timeline 🗓 

Although during the Covid-19 pandemic, supply chain and logistics are extremely challenging, with our rich experience in manufacturing and supply chain management, we are still well on track with our late Oct shipping timeline. Shipping will start from around Oct 26th and will continue till Nov. For full transparency, we are now sharing our real-time production progress and timeline with every one of you on a Google Sheet Gantt Chart. This document will be updated weekly so you can track where we are and what's happening. 😊

You can see the latest timeline here.

Production Scene Snapshot 😍

We will periodically share some production scenes so you can see first hand how UVMask comes to life. The following video clip is from the process of fine finishing on the inner surface of the injection-mold in non-conductive oil immersion. This process produces fine details that give a high-end feeling to the product. 

Stay tuned for more. 


In case you encounter any problems with the survey, BackerKit or  cannot find the answer to your question, please drop us a line in the  comments, send us a private message, or shoot us an email at [email protected]

Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your week! 😊
