Our Strategy 2020
In February 2020, Samatoa was mainly relying on Tourism (85%). Following the sudden apparition of the Covid-19, the entire tourism activity of Siem Reap- collapsed. So, It muted the whole fashion market. It is why we had to immediately adapt to a new strategy of resilience. The main objective was to find new sources of revenue and sustain employments.
First, our new strategy is articulated in short term to save employments. Then, on middle term, we want to sustain the activities with a new sustainable post-Covid offer.
SAMATOA FACE MASK RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Following 10 years of experience and research, we have finally highlighted the exceptional qualities of lotus microfiber. In particular, its is the most breathable textile and the best antibacterial fabric. These 2 characteristics are the most important for the efficiency of the masks.
Then, we decided to envelop the lotus fiber with a double layer of organic cotton fabric. This complex of material guarantee a sustainable face mask with the best efficiency.
Secondly, by analyzing tests results done since the covid outbreak, we could find the ideal textile complex. The most suitable masks are made of 2 layers of cotton and fleece. The best cotton would be weight 80-100 grams/square meter. The ideal warp contains 44 threads (120nm)/cm and weft 33 threads (120nm)/cm. Thus, it corresponds to what we use for our masks now.
Furthermore, our fleece/filters have the advantage of being made of lotus fiber to offer exceptional electrostatic properties.
FACE MASK TESTS AND CERTIFICATION:
In July 2020, anti-bacterial tests has been done at the National Institute of Korea. It reveals that the lotus microfiber is more than 99% anti bacterial.
This result is exceptional as it is now by far the most anti-bacterial textile known i the world. The best and high industrial technology fabric was 82% only.
It efficiently inhibit 99.95% for the staphylococcus and 99.99% for the pneumonia. Theses virus have similar characteristics and size (0.06 and 0.14 microns.) than the corona-virus responsible of Covid-19.
Finally, on June 2020, our two models of mask received certification UNS2/AFNOR by the French Direction of Equipment.
Our next goal is to get certified our new materiel complex UNS1. Each certification UNS1 or UNS2 matchs with a specific market segment and range of filtration so both are useful. UNS is for Unsanitary Use certification, which offers two categories of certification based on filtration rate and breath-ability.
This certification guarantee filtration 70-90% (UNS2) and more than 90% (UNS1) of particles of 1 and 3 microns.
Then, our second goal is to prove that our fabric mask provides the same efficiency than FPP2 standard. These would provide high value to our mask and a huge competitive advantage with competitors. FFP2 guarantee the filtration of 94% of particles of 0.1 and 0.3 microns and are for surgical use mainly.
