KN95 Respirator Face Mask
KN95 Protection Face Mask
Respirator and Personal Safety Mask
The KN95 Protection Face Mask is a respirator face mask for personal and industrial use. The soft, lightweight fabric of this mask provides a reliable 95% particle filtration rate that helps prevent dust, pollen and other particulate from reaching the user. These masks are excellent for shopping, travel or when visiting crowded areas, and can help prevent the transmission of diseases. The KN95 mask is comfortable and easy to use with two simple ear loops and moldable nose bridge. Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include other items such as gloves , Safety glasses, and shoes, ear protection, or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits. One size fits most.
This type of equipment hasn't been part of our normal trade so we have no way of testing the efficacy of these masks. We had multiple offers from trusted overseas vendors, with whom we have long term established trade relationships, and we were getting many inquiries, so we decided to obtain masks in order to provide people with options for personal protection - something better than the improvised face covers many have had to use. Obtaining masks at this time was very difficult and expensive, but we remain dedicated to providing them to you at reasonable rates. Supplies are limited. We reserve the right to limit quantities.
"On Friday, the F.D.A. issued an emergency use authorization for KN95 masks. Regulated by the Chinese government, they are almost identical in performance to N95 masks. There are slight differences in their specifications, like a variation in the maximum pressure the masks must be able to withstand as a person inhales and exhales.The C.D.C. lists KN95 masks as a suitable alternative when N95s are not available."

We're working hard to obtain as many masks as possible, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak they've become scarce, and we expect them to sell out fast. We will continue to try our best to acquire more masks and other P.P.E. like gowns, surgical masks, etc, and do our part to help our communities through this pandemic.

What is the difference between the KN95, N95, KF94, FFP2 respiratory face masks?
They are basically all the same. They have 95% filtration of particles >0.3 microns in size. KN95 is China code (95%), the N95 is the USA Code (95%), KF94 is Korea code (95%) and FFP2 is the EU code (94%).
According to 3M's Technical Bulletin "Based on this comparison, it is reasonable to consider China KN95, AS/NZ P2, Korea 1st Class, and Japan DS FFRs as "equivalent" to US NIOSH N95 and European FFP2 respirators, for filtering non-oil-based particles such as those resulting from wildfires, PM 2.5 air pollution, volcanic eruptions, or bioaerosols (e.g. viruses). However, prior to selecting a respirator, users should consult their local respiratory protection regulations and requirements or check with their local public health authorities for selection guidance."
