JL Racing's 1 Million Mask Challenge
For the past week, JL Racing has been transitioning our manufacturing to make much needed reusable masks, gowns and other PPE products. We have the capacity and on-hand materials to build 1 Million masks in very short order for the #millionmaskchallenge.
We are working around the clock to meet this new challenge, but we need connections to state and federal governments to get the product into the right hands. Sadly, there has been a lot of terrible price gauging in the market. Our goal is to sell these products without any large markups, but simply to keep our JL family working during this difficult time and to be able to provide something valuable for our community. We are also donating as much material and labor as possible to support this effort.
Our “Big Ask” is to let us know if you have connections to anyone on a government level, at hospitals, or essential operations that are looking to purchase these items in bulk. Our team has the capability to make 1 Million masks in short order (30-50K/day), or 100,000 gowns (5-10K per day).
Our Face Masks: Are not N95 grade. However, we do make washable, reusable face-masks that not only provide a safety barrier on their own but also allow for an insert of a variety of filters. These masks could also be used to increase the overall lifespan of an N95 mask or surgical mask. We are unable to guarantee any medical-grade standards, however, we have followed and exceeded all CDC guidelines and our materials meet the ideal specs for fabric masks being requested.
Our Gowns: We make reusable gowns with hydrophobic or poly-blend fabrics, matching the requests by the CDC and others.
From everyone at JL, we thank you in advance for any connections and advice you are able to provide. We are working hard to make you proud!
