Disposable mask - pack of 10 (KN95/FFP2)
What’s the difference between KN95 / FFP2 and FFP3 Face Masks?
KN95 /FFP2 & FFP3 Face Masks are classes of respirators, tested on the direction of inspiration (outside to inside) and take into account leakage to the face and filtration efficiency.
FFP2 face masks are the equivalent of N95 face masks, which have a minimum of 94% filtration percentage and a maximum of 8% leakage to the inside. These masks are not shaped to your face but are simply held in place by the elastic earloop and have a typical lifespan of 3-8 hours depending on environmental factors.
FFP3 face masks are the most effective at filtration, with a minimum filtration of 99% and a maximum leakage of 2% to the inside. These masks are better shaped to your face for a more snug fit and typically have a valve to help breathe as the filtration material is much thicker. The valve also reduces the build up of moisture, lengthening the lifespan of the mask. FFP3 masks are typically used for handling asbestos.
FFP3 masks are generally recommended for lash artists to protect of any fumes or odours during the treatment.
