What is KN95 / FFP2
FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece.
Certified to both – FFP2 = European Certified Face Masks / KN95 = Chinese Certified Face Masks.
Both standards require the face mask to pass rigorous testing to establish that the mask is capable of filtering out pollutants and microparticles that carry viruses. All of which guarantee ≥94% filtration and ≤8% inward leakage around the perimeter of the mask if worn correctly.
As a certified reusable face mask we are now able to add -R to indicate it’s official reusable status.
Care Instructions – How to prolong the life of your mask
This mask is classed as reusable and has been proven to retain its ability to filter and protect you the wearer for several cleaning cycles if handled with care between each use, and cleaned according to the care instructions as linked to below. No guarantee can be given as this is dependant on how the mask is handled, stored, cleaned etc. You must use your judgment on when to renew the mask to guarantee your KN95 benefits. This can only be done based on your inspection of the mask condition, which even after some deterioration still makes an excellent face covering.
The mask is made of a mixture of fabrics as shown in the Mask Design section of our website. These fabrics are necessary in order to meet filtration standards and provide the final graphene enhanced layer to the outer layer. These fabrics do however require care by the user. If not handled with care, protective properties in the mask may deteriorate. At such times, the mask is still effective as a face covering.
Self-Seal Storage Pouch
Each mask is supplied in a packet has a self seal top edge once opened and when not in use the mask should be stored flat in this packet to prevent the mask from being repeatedly bent or rubbed against thus compromising the mask and causing avoidable deterioration. This also protects the mask from getting dirty inside your pocket or bag.
Cleaning in-between use
Care instructions on the Product Information Sheet should be followed carefully.
Our recommendation is to purchase a bottle of the Sanitiser from our SHOP to go with your masks. If this sanitiser is used on the mask instead of washing, you will not add to the deterioration of the fabric and will prolong the life of the mask and be certain that it is still providing you with the highest level of protection.
To wash the mask, please DO NOT machine wash, it must be washed very carefully by hand according to the instructions on the product information sheet.
As with all Protective Face Masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in general, use of our products does not guarantee that the user will not become exposed to any airborne bacteria and/or viral infections. However, the risk of such exposure will be significantly reduced by the use of this product in accordance with the Instructions for Use.
