KN95 Masks Appendix A Whitelist Designed with 5 Layers of Protective Filtration - Tested By NPPTL.
Are you looking for an N95 Face Mask? We have a limited supply of Harley and Makrite N95 respirators available. Click Here
New - Our KN95 face masks meet or exceed the CN Standard standard GB2626-2006 . Our KN95 masks have a multi-layer design for protection (PPE face masks for filtering particulate, viruses, and microbes). Our KN95 Face Mask is certified to standards similar to the EU FFP2 certification and the US N95 approved mask.
Update: In the 2nd half of 2020, the FDA changed their emergency use rules for medical and healthcare professionals. This rule change affected all KN95 masks. This update was in response to the increase in the availability of N95 respirators. KN95 masks continue to provide excellent protection and value for business and personal use.
Omicron Variant and Face Mask Recommendations
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday, Jan. 14, updated its "Types and Masks and Respirators" page to specify that "loosely woven cloth products" offer the least amount of protection, followed by "layered finely woven products." Surgical masks and KN95s provide "even more protection," while approved respirators, like N95s, offer the most. The agency recommends wearing "the most protective mask you can that fits well and that you will wear consistently."
The decision comes as many health experts have urged the public to switch to higher-quality masks, like N95s or KN95s, as the omicron coronavirus variant — which transmits and evades COVID-19 vaccines more easily — rapidly spreads throughout the United States.

About KN95 Face Masks
Designed for comfort and ease of use with flexible elastic ear loops and an integrated, flexible nose bridge to help ensure proper fit. The KN95 standard means these masks are effective against 95 percent of particles with a diameter of 0.3 microns or larger. Properly worn masks can protect against PM10, PM2.5, and smaller particles. BFE>95% (Bacterial filtration efficiency)
5-Ply Layers of Protective Filtration – Our KN95 mask is genuinely made of 5 layers with two non-woven outer layers as well as two melt-blown inner layers and a non-woven middle layer to absorb small moisture particles. These masks offer superior protection to a cloth face mask or standard 3-ply disposable mask.
Quality You Can Trust
Tested By NPPTL (National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory) on Jun. 19, 2020, with a Minimum Filter Efficiency of 99.81 and Maximum Filter Efficiency of 99.90, which can help protect you and the ones around you in every situation, be it travel, shopping, working out, commuting or being out at the park. Multi-layered protection against dust, particles, and droplets. Filter efficiency 99.3% to 97.19%
KN95 vs Surgical Face Mask: What is the difference?
- A KN95 respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and efficiently filter out airborne particles. Note that the edges of the respirator form a seal around the nose and mouth.
- A Surgical Mask is a loose-fitting, disposable device that creates a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment. Surgical masks are made in different thicknesses and with different abilities to protect you from contact with liquids. A surgical mask may effectively block splashes and large-particle droplets; a face mask, by design, does not filter or block tiny particles in the air transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or specific medical procedures.

N95 vs. KN95 Mask: What is the difference?
- Based on this comparison by 3M, it is reasonable to consider China KN95, AS/NZ P2, Korea 1st Class, and Japan DS2 FFRs as "similar" to US NIOSH N95 and European FFP2 respirators, for filtering non-oil-based particles such as those resulting from wildfires, PM 2.5 air pollution, volcanic eruptions, or bioaerosols (e.g., viruses).
- Both ratings require masks to be tested for filtration efficiency at capturing salt particles (NaCl). Both have been tested at a flow rate of 85 L/minute.
- N95s and KN95s are both rated to capture 95% of particles. Among the minor differences, only KN95 masks are required to pass fit tests, while N95 masks have slightly stronger breathability standards.
- Bottom Line: For everyday use, KN95 masks are an excellent value. FDA White list KN95 may be used by HCP when N95 masks are not available.
Medical Grade Materials • Highly Efficient Filtration • Optimal Comfort
A KN95 Face Mask can help reduce exposure to biological substances, such as bacteria and viruses. However, wearing a mask will not eliminate the risk of infection. It depends on the proper fit of the mask for the wearer.
A study published in 2008 showed that face masks were up to 80% effective in reducing transmission and infection from airborne viruses. Link Here
- Environmental - The KN95 Face Mask can protect you from smoke, pollen, and pollution. The filter has an efficiency of above 95% at 0.3 pm particle size; ordinary pollen particles are about 10 - 1000 pm in size.
- Animal Allergens - The KN95 Face Mask can protect you from animal allergens. The KN95 Face Mask has an efficiency of above 95% at 0.3 pm particle size, and animal allergen particles are about 5 - 10 pm in size.
- Due to Health Regulations, we cannot accept returns on this Item.
- NEW - Meets or exceeds CN Standard GB2626-2019 for better breathability. Filter at least 95% of airborne particles .3 microns or larger
- This is a KN95 mask, NOT an N95 Respirator.
- Manufactured in an FDA Registered facility

- The KN95 standard means that the mask provides the intended effectiveness of filtering 95 percent of particles with a mass median diameter of 0.3 microns.
- This mask does not eliminate the risk of contracting any disease or infection. Immediately change your mask if it becomes soiled with blood or body fluid.
- Due to safety concerns, personal protective equipment, including face masks, is NON-returnable.
- Filtering facepiece respirators ("FFRs") are intended for single usage. Reuse of FFRs is not generally recommended, and disposable FFRs have not been approved for routine decontamination. The decision to permit extended use or limited reuse of FFRs should be made in consultation with federal, state, and local public health recommendations and occupational health or infection control professionals.
