This post is dedicated to the many doctors, nurses and healthcare workers fighting COVID-19, risking their own lives to save others.
On October 1st-3rd 2020, ProtekPAK hosted a group of doctors and nurses in Mexico City, after finishing their rounds in Reynosa, Tamaulipas (Border of Mexico and the US). The team were fighting against the spread of COVID-19 and treating infected patients. These amazing healthcare professionals work for a social organization of doctors that cross borders to help people in need.
We provided them with our Antiviral Face Masks that have Biological Nanotechnology, and asked them to test our face Shields.
They all loved the Face masks and one of the Doctors, Dr. Samantha Sanches Tegal, provided her testimony:
“Compared to the ones we used in the front line, the masks are much more comfortable and breathable and the Face Shield is much better to use. They are all recyclable and reduce the amount of waste, besides the protection level.”

When it comes to protecting yourself and your loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic, wouldn’t you like to use all means necessary to do so?
What would full protection look like? Would complete isolation until we find an effective vaccine be the answer; or until the number of infected people is reduced drastically?
How are we really going to live within this “new normal”?
With all the fake news and varied expert opinions, it can be overwhelming and quite hard to know what is really going on.
So what should we do?
Should we keep reading the news and isolating ourselves and our loved ones? Should we deny the disease exists, expose ourselves to the virus, and risk getting infected? We call this the Passive Approach.
Or should we take control of our life, be socially responsible, and use the proper protection while remaining environmentally friendly? We call this the Active Approach.
When pursuing an Active Approach, here are some considerations we can keep in mind:
Face masks reduce the spread of the virus. They can be lifesaving, especially in proximity with elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions. But not all masks bear the same quality. Did you know there is a mask that provides active protection using Biological Nanotechnology neutralizing 99% of COVID, and other viruses, bacteria and fungi? This mask is active for 10 days, which means it has the capability to replace ~ 20 disposable masks. It has better protection and is more effective since it does not require replacement as soon as it is touched.
We now know we can get infected in a number of ways. The mask only protects the mouth and nose, however, what about the eyes? Face Shields can complement the use of masks, especially for those who are more exposed to the virus in a social setting/ crowded environment. Many shields can be uncomfortable and generate a lot of waste. The good news is that now there is a face shield that not only was it designed for comfort and protection, but that is reusable and has replaceable visors. This way we can still be environmentally friendly while using our protective equipment.
Lastly, as we slowly leave our homes, return to work, and school, we can be more cognizant of the places that are implementing measures to reduce infection; and refrain from visiting those places that do not. To do so, we should look for signs that the place installed antimicrobial film on high touch surfaces. There are antimicrobial films that neutralize the Coronavirus up to 99.86%, meaning they keep the surface almost free of COVID and other viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Such film is usually installed on door handles, reception desks, toilets, tables, gyms, groceries, restaurants, bars, pubs, schools, colleges, dealers, etc…
ProtekPAK is a company created to allow people and companies to restart businesses in the new normal, using the latest technologies to provide the best, antiviral, protection to all. Take the active approach and learn more.
ProtekPAK started with a vision of bringing together protection, quality, reliability in costs and delivery, as well as comfort, with the flexibility of customization. These aspects are of the utmost importance.
In the early development stages of ProtekPAK, one of the very first questions I asked companies I was in touch with was: “How is your experience with your current PPE vendors?”
The most common answers included:
Quality is not consistent
Prices keep changing
Too many resellers, no added value
Forget about certifications, they do not even deliver consistent product from the same manufacturer
Delays in delivery
What they advertised and what they delivered was totally different
The products are terrible, and are thrown away after 15 minutes of use (Face Shield)
I cannot breathe (Face masks)
My ears are suffering (Face Masks)
You probably experienced some of these yourself or heard similar complaints from your employees, customers, family….
To have all that I need, does it mean I will have to pay more? The clear answer is no!!!
Is there something different out there? YES!
ProtekPAK provides all of these personal protective equipment and more. It is cost effective because of the technology used and the innovation that is put into the products.
Our products were designed with comfort in mind. The supply chain is reliable, and the products are environmentally friendly.
If you want your customers protected comfortably with the highest quality, you should think about our value proposition. Try our masks, face shield and “breathe” the difference.
Finding light in a time of darkness. How Covid-19 helped me find my passion to help others.
Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. One day in March 2020 I woke up and found that the world had changed forever. Countries had shutdown, financial systems were thrown into turmoil, uncertainty permeated every aspect of our lives. The worst part of that day for me was the news of people dying from this unknown and scary disease. That day in March marked the end of life as I knew it and I believe the life that most people had come to know.
We as individuals most often pick our fights and try to deal with matters that we can control. However with COVID-19 the situation felt different. The sheer magnitude of the pandemic and its impact is much larger than any single individual, single city, single country or even the entire human race could control. The tiny 20nm virus disrupted 8 billion lives, and every one seemed so helpless. This is when I knew I had to do something.
Definitely my immediate concern was not to get sick, but then I asked myself: “ what can I do to help others to protect themselves against COVID-19?” Don’t get me wrong, of course I was worried about my family, about my friends, my colleagues and everyone else, but this felt like a fight worth fighting!
In terms of next steps, I knew I had the right mindset but where to start?
Luckily I am surrounded by a great team of likeminded friends and colleagues, where after a few days of lengthy debates and philosophical discussions we created a new concept and a new company called ProtekPAK.
ProtekPAK is a holistic approach to protecting people at home and at work. As the founders of the company we recognized that with the COVID-19 pandemic the need for Personal Protective equipment will unfortunately be with us for the long term. Therefore, we were inspired to create a unique concept that will empower individuals and businesses to protect themselves during the pandemic and beyond. We saw the market flooded with cheap and defective products. As ProtekPAK, we decided to do everything better, by providing thebest quality, thebest protection, incredible comfort with a unique combination of products manufactured and delivered in the most cost effective manner through innovation and advanced technologies.
We have achieved a lot in the first 4 months and I am excited with what is next to come! Look out for us, we are just getting started…
ProtekPAK is a young company, but we have managed to bring together a very strong team of experienced individuals that are poised to disrupt the Person Protection Equipment industry. 2020 created an opportunity for us to help people and we intend to take full advantage!
