N95 and KN95 comparison table

KN95 breathing mask is a mask controlled by the Chinese government according to GB2626-2006, GB262-2019 and GB19083-2010 regulations. These masks have been widely spread to the general public in April 2020 to help the Chinese people and other countries fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to FDA guidelines and international standards, since masks have been approved by the FDA, healthcare professionals also use KN95 filter mask respirators.

When it comes to the KN95 mask itself, it is designed to fit snugly on the face due to its ability to form an airtight seal. This mask is characterized by ear hooks, which is different from other types of masks, which use headband attachments behind the ears or behind the neck.

When arousing public opinion, many people seem to like the design of the KN95 mask because it can be worn quickly and easily and is also very suitable from the nose to the chin (to prevent particles from entering the nose and mouth).

  1. Are KN95 masks effective?

In theory, a good KN95 can provide a filtering effect equivalent to that of N95. BYD KN95 masks have a filtration efficiency of at least 95%, making them as good as N95 masks (97% filtration efficiency) and better than surgical masks (95% filtration efficiency) and PM2.5 filtration masks (about 60% filtration efficiency). According to the manufacturer 3M, these masks are considered "equivalent" and "according to the performance requirements specified in the standard and confirmed during the qualification period, they can be expected to function very similarly."

Generally, these masks are considered to be very effective against airborne particles, viruses and bacteria, because their efficacy has been tested and proven by FDA, CDC and other international regulations and regulatory standards.

  1. How to judge which "KN95" is fake?

NIOSH has a special counterfeit indicator list, and the organization is updating it as they become aware of counterfeit brands. There is no mark on the filter mask respirator? No approval number on the respirator or headband? Is "NIOSH" misspelled? That's fake! NIOSH has also compiled some recommendations for purchasing goods from trusted suppliers, including "If a list claims to be "legal" and "real," it may not be the case).

According to the CDC, there are several signs that an KN95 respirator may be counterfeit. They include:
• No markings at all
• No approval number
• No NIOSH stamp
• “NIOSH” spelled incorrectly
• Presence of decorative fabric or other decorative add-ons (e.g., sequins)
• Claims for the of approval for children

Some KN95 masks were found to be ineffective after purchase. You can try it with fire: put on a mask, light a shallow spot six inches from your face, and blow. If it can be turned off, your KN95 is not good. Or, empty a packet of "low sugar and low sugar" or other artificial sweeteners, put on a mask, and smell it. It should greatly reduce the smell you smell through the mask.
