As a manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for consumer, industrial and medical applications, our philosophy is simple—give our customers the very best protection without compromise. 

 

We achieve this by applying the highest standards in research & development, quality control and industrial ratifications as well as in housing the entire manufacturing process, including basic material fabrication, in a state-of-the-art environment. 

 

WE ARE NOVID.

Registered with the Medical Device Authority (MDA), our manufacturing facilities meet ASTM F2100-11, EN 14683:2019 & ISO 13485:2016 standards. We employ cutting-edge UV-C sterilisation for our entire range of products to ensure the highest hygiene standard for every product user. Our premium products are enhanced with individual wrapping to provide protection against contamination and boast of high efficiency filtration (BFE/PFE ≥95%–≥98%) against virus, bacteria & airborne particles. Optimum user comfort is achieved through high breathability, hypoallergenic materials and adaptable fitting.

We are a part of Notion VTec Berhad which has a collective workforce of over 2,500 personnel in Malaysia and Thailand with over USD100 million in assets.

 

WHY NOVID?

We pride ourselves with being at the forefront of PPE development with technological know-how that competes at the highest world standards. Our ISO-certified manufacturing capabilities stretch from specialised fabric production to complete product assembly and cutting-edge, medical-grade sterilisation processes to premium individual product packing lines. We focus on delivering premium products that meet stringent medical hygiene standards for the confidence and peace of mind of our users. Our key product advantages are UV-C product sterilisation and individual product wrapping.

What is UV-C Sterilisation of PPE?

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) play a critical role in protecting the safety of users. At NOVID, our products are not only manufactured to the highest quality standards but have also been disinfected to ensure the highest hygiene standards in order to reach you free of contamination. To achieve this, we employ cutting-edge UV-C sterilisation process to disinfect our entire range of products. 

 

UV-C is a proven sterilisation process that works by destroying the DNA of microorganisms and viruses, thereby killing them and preventing their spread. UV-C has been extensively used for decades at hospitals and medical facilities to ensure a clean environment by disinfecting surfaces and medical equipment. It is a physical sterilisation process that does not require the use of any chemical. It is safe and widely used in many applications including for the purification of air and water.

 

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a range of electromagnetic waves with shorter wavelengths than visible violet light. It is divided into three types with reducing wavelengths and increasing energy: UV-A (325–400nm), UV-B (280–315nm) and UV-C (100–280nm). Of these only UV-C provides sufficiently high amounts of energy to destroy microorganisms and viruses. 

Why Individual Wrapping of PPE?

While bulk-packaged products may be suitable for ordinary use, PPEs and in particular face masks for medical use need to be sterile to prevent possible cross-contamination. From the manufacturing facility to the hands of the end-user, essential PPEs must remain contamination-free.

 

At NOVID, our single-use premium products are individually wrapped and UV-C sterilised to ensure the highest hygiene standards are maintained so you can use them with confidence. 

How do I select a face mask that really protects me?

It can be a daunting task to select a face mask that offers effective protection against bacteria, virus and harmful airborne particles. With so many brands and types of face masks available for consumers—often from unknown origins with dubious conformity to international health standards—you really need to know what makes an effective face mask.

 

Five key areas matter most—particulate matter filtration rating (PM); bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE); particulate filtration efficiency (PFE); fluid resistance (FR); and microbial-free status.

 

Particulate matter filtration rating (PM) is measured in microns. Our disposable surgical masks provide protection from particles that measure 0.1 micron in size, hence a rating of PM0.1. For reference, typical hair diameter is 50 microns while typical bacteria width ranges from 0.2 to 1.0 micron. Therefore our PM0.1 rating provides effective protection against bacteria, virus and harmful airborne particles.

 

Bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) and particulate filtration efficiency (PFE) are measured in percentages. BFE rating indicates the percentage of bacteria larger than 3 microns filtered out by the face mask. PFE rating indicates the percentage of particles larger than 1 micron filtered out by the face mask. Our disposable surgical face masks provide 98% efficiency in filtering out bacteria and airborne particles.  For reference, surgical environments require face masks with BFE/PFE of at least 98%.

 

Fluid resistance (FR) rating indicates the resistance of a face mask to penetration by fluids at a given velocity. Our face masks have FR ratings of 80 mmHg and 120mmHg, thereby meeting standards for surgical use.

All our products achieve microbial-free status through state-of-the-art Ultraviolet C (UV-C) sterilisation process which eliminates germs that can affect your health.

 

More importantly, each Novid product meets the highest international standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), European Standards (EN) and Conformitè Europëenne (CE) that ensure quality, performance and safety aspects for the peace of mind of consumers.

STAY SAFE.

Whether it’s the seasonal influenza or the COVID-19, ensuring personal health and safety requires discipline and some common sense. The viruses are believed to spread from person-to-person through virus-laden droplets—generated when an infected person speaks, coughs or sneezes—which then enter the upper respiratory tract of persons nearby. Transmission may also occur from direct and indirect contact with virus-laden droplets that land on surfaces, picked up by the hands and then enter the body when one rubs the eyes, nose or mouth.

One of the most important preventative actions you can take to avoid infection is to maintain social distancing. The World Health Organisation (WHO) advocates that we keep a distance of one metre from others to reduce the likelihood of inhaling virus-laden droplets generated by an infected person. Hence the importance of keeping away from crowds especially in enclosed spaces.

 

WHO also recommends we avoid touching our eyes, nose and mouth with our hands since they touch many surfaces and can easily pick up viruses. For this reason it is important to practise good hygiene and wash our hands frequently with soap and water or to use alcohol-based hand rub in order to kill viruses that our hands pick up. 

 

According to WHO, the use of masks is part of a comprehensive package of prevention and control measures that can limit the spread of certain respiratory viral diseases, including COVID-19. Masks can be used either for protection of healthy persons (worn to protect oneself when in contact with an infected individual) or for source control (worn by an infected individual to prevent onward transmission).

 

Wearing a mask when in public, especially in crowded spaces, is an important practice. As there is a high percentage of persons infected with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic, it is therefore important for everyone to be wearing a mask when outside the home.
