Take a deeper dive into understanding the impact of volatile raw materials costs of facemasks on your bottom line. Dr. Ilyukhina addresses key concerns for mask making and the steep learning curve that comes with their production.  

Read an in-depth the interview with Ilyukina about:
   ●Conclusions that help lessen the learning curve of new       manufacturing procedures
   ●Raw material considerations 

   ●How labor and building rental can help lessen the impact on margins caused by volatile meltblown prices

Then use four cost models to estimate your own margins. Dr. Ilyukhina’s cost models allow you to plug in your own cost assumptions to see how the net cost per mask would be affected by each change. The models include:
   ●Two models for three-ply masks
   ●Two models for FFP2/N95-type respirators
