Heat Molding & Fit Customization
Clean the mask after printing, remove burrs and strings. Use a 150-grit sandpaper to sand the inside surface that you expect to contact your face. The smoother the better. Use a cloth wetted with acetone to further smooth the sanded surface if desired.
Install the camlock valves with silicone or similar sealant/adhesive
o Apply the valves before heat molding to better retain mask shape
o Allow to fully cure before heat molding
Place the mask shell in an oven preheated to 80°C (176°F) for 3 minutes. Place the mask open side up, on a folded paper towel placed in a baking dish to prevent the metal grill from melting the shell. Set up a mirror or camera phone on selfie mode nearby the oven to use during Step 04.
Remove the mask shell from oven and gently press the mask to your face with a slight pivoting motion. Lightly anchor below your chin then pivot to contact the rest of your face. Use your fingers to gently press the mask against your nose bridge and cheek bones. Use the mirror or phone on selfie mode to guide your actions.
Shape your hand position as if yelling across a field; use your index fingers and thumbs to gently contour the soft plastic to your face. The mask hardens within seconds even though it still feels warm.
Inspect the fit in the mirror and note how well it seats on your nose bridge and upper cheeks. These are the most likely areas to leak.
Repeat the heat molding process, this time press a little bit harder on the sides of your nose and upper cheeks. Do not over do it! Do not press your fingers towards each other, that will make a crease on the top of your nose bridge and cause a leak. Try to apply even pressure with your whole finger, not just the fingertips
A gasket may be added around the edge of the mask to improve comfort and fit.
