This KN95 respirator is rated to filter out 95% of all particles, making it vastly superior to simply wearing a surgical or cloth mask! The KN95 mask uses a filter weaved into the mask to filter out 95% of all particulates, including airborne bacteria, viruses, dust, and other harmful airborne particles! The mask seals tightly around your face, only allowing air to go through the respirator. The metal adjustable nose strap adjusts to allow a perfect fit to your face!
The KN95 is the Chinese made equivalent to the US N95 mask (which cannot currently be purchased by civilians due to all N95 masks being sold to the hospitals and government agencies at the moment.) According to mask manufacturer 3M, the US company that manufactures the elusive N95 mask“it is reasonable to consider” China’s KN95s “equivalent” to US N95s. Mask standards for Europe (FFP2), Australia (P2), Korea (KMOEL), and Japan (DS) are also highly similar.
This product is not for medical use. Note that all civilian sold N95 and KN95 products are required to state they are not for medical use, including the elusive 3M N95 mask.
With such similar sounding names, it can be confusing to understand the difference between N95 and KN95 masks. What are KN95 masks, and are they the same as N95 masks? This handy chart explains the differences between N95 and KN95 masks (and all characteristics that are the same).
In short, N95 masks are the US standards for respirator masks; KN95 masks are the Chinese standards for masks. These are the requirements that the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health requires manufacturers to meet in order to label their masks as N95s. Despite the long list of differences, the two masks are equivalent or nearly equivalent on the features that most people care about.
