The Pune-based DIAT is a deemed university supported by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). Its samples were tested for air permeability/ breathability, Nano-fibre mat porosity, biodegradability and mechanical properties as per the American Society for Testing and Materials standards and the results were highly impressive.

Seeing the results, three major mask manufacturing companies have approached DIAT and signed the transfer of technology (ToT) agreements for mass production.
