What is a KN95 mask? KN95 masks are a kind of facepiece respirator. These are also called disposable respirators.
Disposable respirators are graded and number of features including:
- Filter Performance: The filter efficacy is measured by the reduction of concentrations of the aerosol test agent.
- Total Inward Leakage: The amount of aerosol that enters the respirator through the facepiece either through the filter or through seal leakage.
- Inward Leakage: How much aerosol enters the facepiece while someone wearing it breathes normally for 3 minutes.
- Test Agent: This is an aerosol put into the chamber during the performance test.
- Pressure Drop: Resistance of air through a medium (eg. the respirator).
The Asian Mask Standard
All over the world, there are standards for face masks. For instance, the N95 masks are regulated by the NIOSH-42CFR84 certification. Europe, Australia/New Zealand, Korea, and Japan have their own standards. KN95 masks are backed by GB2626-2006 – a Chinese certification. Like the N95 mask, the KN95 mask must be 95 percent efficient in filtering. The KN95 masks and all the other certifications should be considered “equivalent.”
What Does the KN95 Mask Keep Out?
A KN95 mask keeps out up to 95 percent of particulate matter in the air. The particles kept out are tiny materials – as small as 2.5 microns. While some masks come in various colors, you’re most likely to see white masks. Surgical face masks, for instance, don’t do as good a job keeping particles out. They often let in large particles, up to 10 microns.
Our KN95 certified masks is an industry-standard mask. This means it will effectively filter 95% of materials with a median mass diameter of 2.5 – 3 microns. Our masks effectively filter typical environmental particulates.
Ordinary pollen particles range from about 10 – 1000 μm in size. Our mask can filter most normal pollen particles.
Bacteria and germs
Your exposure to viruses and bacteria can be significantly reduced by using a Kn95 mask. You can cut out your exposure to most environmental threats. But remember that a KN95 mask is not meant to be used in a clinical or hospital setting.
Many cities today are full of smog from industry. You can greatly reduce your exposure to these harmful pollutants with the use of a KN95 rated mask.
Automotive Exhaust and Smoke
The use of a KN95 mask can help to deodorize and filter your surrounding air. Protect yourself from most harmful automotive exhaust fumes.
Odor and fragrance
Most odors and fragrances can also be removed from your surrounding air by using our mask. Remove unpleasant odors in the air you breathe.
KN95 rated masks remove 95%of particles at 2.5-3PM particle size. As most pet dander is between 5 to 10 μm particle size, our masks are extremely effective at protecting you from pet allergens, among other things.
Easy Breathe Material
Our masks are made of spunbond and meltblown polypropylene. We also use four different layers of filtration to ensure that our masks provide great filtration but are easy to use. You can breathe easily while using our masks. The material is easy to use and flexible enough to give you a great fit. You will also be able to use these makes for several different tasks. Protect yourself from environmental threats or woodworking or construction projects. The flexible material ensures that you will remain protected while being comfortable as well.
