KN95 Face Mask
KN95 masks and N95 masks are often thought to be the same since both are claimed for filtering the 95% of particles of 0.3 macron and greater. In some countries, the KN95 masks are used as an alternative for the N95 masks. But, the difference between the two is that KN95 masks are China standard whereas N95/ FFP2 masks are the United States standard.
In the wake of the COVID 19, the World Health Organization has declared KN95 masks as an alternative for the N95 respirators. The KN95 masks are suitable for the patients, health workers, and doctors working in intensive care units.
The KN95 masks are also effective against non-oil based particles in different work environments like mining and construction.
