N95 Disposable Maskn95 respirator / n95 surgical mask / ffp2 mask
An N95 respirator mask is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles.
The ‘N95’ designation means that when subjected to careful testing, the respirator blocks at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 micron) test particles. If properly fitted, the filtration capabilities of N95 respirator masks exceed those of face masks. However, even a properly fitted N95 respirator mask does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death.

N95 Respirator Mask Specifications
N95 respirators are considered functionally equivalent to certain respirators regulated under non-U.S. jurisdictions, such as FFP2 respirators of the European Union and KN95 respirators of China. However, slightly different criteria are used to certify their performance, such as the filter efficiency, test agent and flow rate, and permissible pressure drop.
The N95 mask requires a fine mesh of synthetic polymer fibers, also known as nonwoven polypropylene fabric, which is produced through a process called melt blowing that forms the inner filtration layer that filters out hazardous particles.

What does the N95 mask mean?
An N95 respirator is a respiratory protective device.
It is designed to achieve a facial fit and has efficient filtration process to remove airborne particles.
The word ‘N95’ means the respirator filters out at least 95 per cent of minute particles in the range of 0.3 microns.
When an N95 mask is worn correctly covering the mouth and nose without any gaps, they achieve their maximum efficiency.
N95 masks provide better protection that normal surgical face masks.
A snugly fitting N95 mask does not remove the risk of illness or death.
The next obvious question is:
What is n95 mask made of?
An N95 mask is made of firm yet flexible non-woven polypropylene fibre.
This material is electrostatic in nature.
Some disposable N95 masks have an optional exhalation valve.
Such valves, reduce exhalation resistance, making it easier to breathe, through them.

- Adjustable elastic band, the length of the elastic band can be adjusted according to the size of the individual’s head circumference.
- The high-density Latex-Free cloth braid is soft and comfortable, and can prevent the elastic band from sticking to the face when sweating.
- The design of the loop elastic band allows you to hang the mask on your chest and avoid the trouble of placing the mask.
- The soft and comfortable PP inner layer provides the most comfortable contact with your skin and maintains good adhesion.
- The pre-shaped nose shape and soft and comfortable foam further strengthen the sealing effect of the mask, which can provide you with more effective protection.
- The design of the n95 mask’s edge adopts pressure design to avoid the discomfort caused by the delamination of the mask’s edge.
- Ergonomic design makes it easy to use with protective glasses and reduces fogging.
N95 Medical Mask Test Report
How long is an n95 mask good for?
Prolonged use of the N95 mask can be safe for up to 8 hours.
Current guidelines encourage wearing a face shield over the N95 mask, to decrease the chances of degrading it.
Can I wash my n95 mask?
Exposing contaminated N95 respirators to vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) or ultraviolet (UV) light appears to eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 virus from the material. This can help preserve the integrity of the masks and make them fit for up to three uses, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) study shows.
Can you smell through n95 mask?
N95 respirators do not filter toxic gases, vapours or the smell of smoke.
Do N95 masks expire?
Yes, as per the answers to the previous questions we can use an N95 mask for three times maximum only after sanitizing each time. The maximum duration to wear a mask is around 8 hours.
But the actual expiry of the mask depends on the contamination level.
“N95 masks really don’t expire in terms of their functionality. The only part that is subject to damage over time is the elastic bands that attach the mask to the user’s face, which can be damaged by sunlight,” Dr John Balmes.
How much does N95 mask cost?
The current cost of N95 masks ranges between $4 to $10 depending upon the order quantity.

What is the difference between p95 and n95?
NIOSH is the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
Under the NIOSH classification system, ‘N’ rated respirators can only be used for particles that do not contain oils. But, ‘R’ rated respirators may be used in environments that contain oily particles.
To sum up: an N95 disposable respirator does not protect against oily particles; an R95 does; a P95 also does and has a longer service life than the R95.
So the main difference between P95 and N95 is in the filtration of oily particles.
