Frequently Asked Questions
They all offer a very similar level of protection – stopping particles larger than 0.3 microns of size greater than 95%. KN95 is an equivalent Chinese standard offering protection identical to that of N95 (USA) and FFP2 (E.U.) masks.
KN95 is the minimum quality standard defined for these types of respiratory masks. This requires the masks to filter out 0.3-micron particles of size equal to 95% of the particles. The 4 and 5 layer masks both meet this quality standard. However, the 5-layer mask will exceed this and provide higher levels of filtration with an additional layer of hot-blown fabric.
They have been approved for use as protection against the coronavirus by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

These masks are designed to be disposable after one use. However, with short and light use, they can be used 2-3 times if care is taken not to contaminate them, and they are hung in a well-ventilated area between uses. It is not recommended to use a mask for more than 8 hours in a day. Click here for advice from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) on reusing the N95, which is a very similar mask. If you have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, discard the mask immediately after contact.
On April 3, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new order making KN95 respirators eligible for authorization if certain criteria are met – click here for more information. They are also approved for use by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The KN95 mask is effective in stopping 95% of particles in the air, protecting against allergens, pollen, and pathogens. They are approved by healthcare professionals by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
