KN95 masks

KN95 masks have a particle filtering capacity of 95 percent , compared to 92 percent for FFP2, which makes them a particularly suitable product for protection against viruses. Its great protection will take care of your health and that of the people around you following proper use, since it is a non-reusable product and whose functionalities are guaranteed for a period of 8 to 12 hours of continuous use.

Its fabric is pleasant and does not cause skin irritation, offering respiratory protection against certain non-oily particles, such as dust, sand, pollen, etc.

They protect from the outside in and from the inside out. Designed to filter particles, aerosols and biological agents present in the environment, preventing them from being inhaled by the user. In addition, it has an anatomical design to better adapt to the face with resistant and more elastic bands to adapt better and more gently. Thanks to this anatomical design, it helps prevent glasses from continually fogging up. It also has a nose clip (metal band) covered by the mask fabric to prevent breakage or loss.

Risks of Exceeding the Useful Life of the KN95

KN95 masks have a useful life of between 8 and 12 hours. In addition, it is very important not to reuse single-use masks, since their effectiveness will be seriously impaired and may, in some ways, be counterproductive for our health, regardless of the risks generated by believing that one is protected, when really it is not...

Excessively extending the recommended hours of use for a mask is something that carries certain dangers, apart from that false belief of being protected. The fundamental filters for the purifying and barrier action of the mask become clogged with its use, and it is when these hours are exceeded that it no longer works correctly and can allow potentially infectious and contagious particles to enter and exit.

And this is not the only risk! In fact, misuse of masks can lead to a wide variety of pathologies and infections. The droplets of saliva that we expel when we speak accumulate inside the mask, moistening the fabric and favoring, over time, the growth of fungi and colonies of bacteria, which can cause respiratory or body problems. For example, it is frequent, as a result of misuse of masks, the appearance of cold sores, the appearance of small wounds in the corner of the lips and the development of small pimples and acne.

Luckily, avoiding all this is simple: use your mask only for the recommended hours and do not reuse single-use ones. For this, reusable masks are already available, which we can comfortably wash and reuse a specific number of times.

Equivalence table for FFP2 - KN95 Masks of the European Regulation with the rest of the technical specifications accepted from other countries

As shown in the table, properly certified masks that meet the indicated sanitary standards perform in a very similar way, based on the performance requirements established in the standards and confirmed during trials and tests to assess the quality and functionality of the masks.

On this basis of comparison, it is reasonable to consider that China's KN95, AS/NZ P2, Korea 1st Class, and Japan DS masks are equivalent to US NIOSH N95 and European FFP2 respirators for filtering particles, droplets, and splashes. , as well as for the prevention of the spread of viruses that can cause infections to third parties.
