About Our Company

Established in 2010

Carbon8 Limited was established in 2010, now trading for over a decade.

Carbon8 LTD is one of the few UK manufacturers of medical grade face masks, our products are certified by a UK accredited Testing Agency and we have full product liability insurance which is never available when purchasing from foreign countries.


Due to the global pandemic of Coronavirus and the call from government for UK companies to diversify into PPE we began our own production lines for medical grade face masks in the UK. 

Our current production capacity amounts to approximately 75,000 EN14683 IIR masks per day.

In response to this diversification we sought the technical advice of the MHRA and a large UK health trust to choose the materials and implement the design of our face masks to the standards necessary for medical use.

We procured and commissioned  3 manufacturing lines which, using verified materials produce a medical grade product that would meet the specifications for use by the NHS.

These materials were chosen to pass the standards necessary of EN14683 IIR offering both the bacterial filtration and Blood penetration resistance necessary for medical use.

After our consultation with MHRA a product testing company, 4Ward Testing was chosen to carry out the certification. 4Ward Testing is one  of just two testing laboratories with the correct equipment to test medical/surgical masks and produce compliant test reports according to EN14683.

Since launcing the product in October our first 2  customers were a local Council and a large well know  electrical manufacturer.
