The KN95 mask is designed to protect the user from harmful chemicals and particles. It is made with five layers of filters to eliminate harmful particles and a nose clip that forms a tight seal around the face. It is also lightweight and offers 94 percent filtration efficiency. The mask is easy to adjust to your face size, and the mask’s soft silicone strap prevents it from pinching your ears.
The KN95 mask is designed to be worn for three to four hours. If you are using it for longer than this, you should throw it away. The reason for this is that a mask is only effective if it fits tightly and fully covers the mouth. If it does not fit properly, it won’t protect you at all.
The KN95 mask is made by a third party manufacturer. This means that it will not pass the standard fit test. Because of this, it’s important to use a certified one to protect your face and your eyes. Luckily, Oliberte has partnered with manufacturers that meet or exceed OSHA standards. And each partner provides lab reports. Moreover, the reports should be clear and within 90 days. But it’s important to keep in mind that each batch is different and the results can vary.
Chinese regulators changed the rules for exporting masks out of the country. Many ‘fly-by-night’ companies were shipping KN95 masks from China, so the Chinese Government wanted to ensure that the product was of a high quality and not a low-quality copy. In addition, a KN95 mask must be able to meet the same strict standards as a GB2626-2006 mask.
In the US, the N95 mask is the standard for respirator masks. In China, the KN95 mask is similar to the N95. While the US uses only N95s, China’s KN95s are regarded as “equivalent.” For this reason, the US and Europe use KMOEL and N95 masks.
The KN95 mask has better quality filtering than cloth and surgical masks. It filters out up to 95% of aerosols. The KN95 mask is made of multiple layers of synthetic materials. It must meet stricter standards in order to be certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
The KN95 mask meets international standards for particulate respirators. It provides the highest level of protection against large and small particles. However, many fakes and low-quality masks are available in the market. As with any product, you should read the label and make sure you get a genuine KN95 mask.
