PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TODAY WITH OUR CERTIFIED KN95 FACE MASKS.
KN95 masks are a critical item in the protective gear toolkit for anyone interacting with others during the current COVID-19 climate – doctors, nurses, EMTs, delivery drivers, postal service workers, and employees of pharmacies, banks, and other essentials businesses.
The KN95 masks are an industry standard for respiratory equipment which has the intended effectiveness of filtering 95% of particulates greater than .3 microns. These masks offer significant protection over standard surgical blue 3 ply masks and are approved by the CDC as acceptable replacements if N95 masks are unavailable*. KN95 masks are considered respiratory protective equipment that conform to GB2626-2006 standards.
Protect you and your family and order your KN95 masks today! Each order of our KN95 masks consists of 5 masks!
Verify the quality of your mask at home using any of the three 10-second tests below.
What You Need
1. Put on your KN95 mask.
2. Hold and activate a lighter six inches from your mouth.
3. Try to extinguish the flame by blowing on it.
Certified mask: You will not be able to blow out the flame no matter how hard you try. Poor quality mask: You can put the flame out. Why? Certified lab-tested KN95 masks are made of strong but breathable full mesh nylon which meets stringent standards for inspiratory resistance (<=350 Pa) and expiratory resistance (<=250 Pa). (“Pa” is short for “Pascals”, the international unit of measurement for air pressure.) What this means is that the material obstructs contagions during inhaling and exhaling while allowing comfortable air circulation.
Sweet and Low
1. Put on your KN95 mask.
2. Empty the contents of a pack of Sweet and Low on a spoon or flat surface.
3. Try sniffing with the mask on and the mask off, noting any difference.
Certified mask: You catch the fragrance, but only faintly.
Poor quality mask: You can still smell the saccharin in full force.
Why? A certified lab-tested KN95 mask has a filtration rate of >=95% and is designed to filter out at least 95% of particles sized three microns or larger. Sweet and Low® is the brand name for saccharin. Saccharin particles are about seven microns in size, so if you can whiff Sweet and Low’s super-sweet scent full strength through your mask, its filtration ability may be insufficient.
1. Hold your face mask by the elastic bands, with the inside of the mask facing up.
2. Fill the mask with water.
Certified mask: The mask cups the water with zero leakage.
Poor quality mask: Water leaks from the mask.
Why? Official surgical masks must have a waterproof layer to protect the wearer from splashes of biological fluids. Worth noting that according to OSHA, your mask can be washed and reused as long as it “maintains its structural and functional integrity and the filter material is not physically damaged or soiled.”
