Manufacturers KN95 Face Mask KN95 respiratory Mask

KN95 can be used to prevent harmful substances entering the respiratory system through the nose and mouth. This can be required in a number of circumstances including:

  • On construction sites to protect against dust and other particles
  • In agriculture to protect from dust, vapours, fumes and mould spores
  • In healthcare to protect from germs and infection
  • Personal use to prevent spread of infection from yourself and for protection from other people’s germs

Due to the coronavirus pandemic the protection from others and to others is of paramount importance. KN95 masks offer more protection to the user than surgical masks due to the filtration and closer fitting nature. The masks are recommended for 

  • Social care
  • Aesthetic clinics
  • Hairdresser
  • Beauty salons
  • Use in shops and workplace

The mask’s 3D shape is designed according to the ergonomics of your face to ensure a secure fit and increase breathing capability of the mask, improve air permeability and make it more comfortable to wear and breathe.

The masks have a lifespan of around 8 hours of use which does not have to be one constant 8 hour session

They must be perfectly positioned around the nose and cover the chin so that all incoming air is filtered.

There are two different types of masks: surgical masks and respirators.

A surgical mask is a disposable medical device that can be bought in pharmacy and that protects against infectious agents transmitted by “droplets.” These droplets can be droplets of saliva or secretions from the upper respiratory tract when the wearer exhales.

A surgical mask can also protect the wearer from the risk of splashes of biological fluids. In this case, the surgical mask must have a waterproof layer. It can also be equipped with a visor to protect the eyes.

But a surgical mask does not protect against “airborne” infectious agents so it will not prevent the wearer from being potentially contaminated by a virus such as the coronavirus.

A respirator Mask is personal protective equipment that prevents the wearer from inhaling aerosols (dust, smoke, mist) as well as vapors or gases (disinfectants, anesthetic gases) that are health hazards. Unavailable in pharmacy, it protects the wearer from airborne infectious agents i.e. against contamination by a virus such as coronavirus, SARS, H1N1, etc.

What Are the Standards ?

Each of these two types of masks is subject to different standards and regulations depending on the country or geographical area.

Surgical masks are tested in the direction of exhalation (from inside to outside). The tests take into account the efficiency of bacterial filtration.

Respirators are tested in the direction of inspiration (from outside to inside). The tests take into account the efficiency of the filter and leakage to the face.

In Europe, 

  • FFP1 refers to the least filtering of the three masks with an aerosol filtration of at least 80% and leakage to the inside of maximum 22%. This mask is mainly used as a dust mask (home renovations and various types of work).
  • FFP2 masks have a minimum of 94% filtration percentage and maximum 8% leakage to the inside. They are mainly used in construction, agriculture, and by healthcare professionals against influenza viruses. They are currently used for protection against the coronavirus.
  • FFP3 masks are the most filtering mask of the FFPs. With a minimum filtration percentage of 99% and maximum 2% leakage to the inside, they protect against very fine particles such as asbestos

So, Which Masks Protect Against Coronavirus?

A contagious patient should wear a surgical mask as soon as contagion is suspected.

In the United States, the N95 respirator filters 95% of airborne particles, and can even filter out bacteria and viruses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is the same standard as the KN95 respirator masks 

 

 

Universal mask-wearing is the most overlooked COVID-19 lifesaver?

Western countries are experiencing higher rates of COVID-19 infections compared to Asian countries because of the West's aversion to wearing masks.
We need universal mask-wearing to aid in lowering COVID-19's virality.

Why masks lower COVID-19 deaths

Masks aid in decreasing COVID-19's virality by three pathways 8.

  1. Decreasing virus spread by infected individuals. The mask traps virus particles on the inside, preventing the virus particles becoming airborne. Protect others.
  2. Decreasing new infections by uninfected individuals. The mask prevents airborne virus particles being inhaled from the outside. Protect yourself.
  3. Limiting hand to face contact. The mask puts a physical barrier between potentially contaminated hands and passages to one's lungs.

Japan has the strongest mask-wearing culture in the world and one of the lowest COVID-19 infection rates

Despite Japan's large elderly population and early infection, the infection and death rate is one of the lowest in the world. A leading reason for this is Japan's strong mask-wearing culture lowering the virality of COVID-19 to manageable levels. Japan has only had 1,387 infections, yet being one of the earliest countries to become infected

The Czech Republic's mandatory mask laws

Starting on March 18, the Czech Republic made it mandatory to wear a mask while in public. So far there have only been 2,942 COVID-19 confirmed cases and 23 deaths, making it one of the lowest infected countries in Europe. 

What is the difference between face masks, N95, KN95, KF94, FFP2 respiratory face masks & face mask shields?

What is the best face mask for Coronavirus?

Bassically speaking they are all the same. They stop 95% of particles >0.3microns in size.

N95 is the USA version

KN95 is the chinese version

Kn94 is the korean version

FFP2 is the EU code including UK

FFP3 is generally worn in hospitals and stops 98% of particles. 

Can a respiratory face mask help stop the coronavirus? 

The basic answer is yes they can help the spread of coronavirus. The masks fit tightly around the nose and mouth and when fitted correctly help protect against the virus

The masks are thicker than normal surgical masks and are designed to be used for short periods like going to a supermarket. The mask should be disposed of when wet or dirty. The masks last around 1 week and should be when when you are in the vicinity of other people. 

Is is not ideal to wear the masks if you have stubble or a beard. 

The masks are designed to stop fluids and splashes going in your eyes and mouths from coughs and sneezes which is one of the main ways in which coronavirus is spread. 

Putting on the KN95 mask.

Before putting the mask on, you should wash your hands properly (warm water + soap) and check that the mask is not defective

The rigid part, generally made of a small metal bar, should be placed around the nose. 

One strip goes behind the head and the other one behind the neck.

Once the mask is in place and attached, pinch the small rigid part around the nose with your index finger and thumb. This should bend around the bridge of the nose and allow the mask to fit the face as closely as possible.

Adjust your mask and make sure the top of the mask covers the nose completely.

The lower part of the mask should cover the whole chin. In the case of surgical masks, this adjustment under the chin should be achieved by stretching the mask out; just extend the three folds.
