What is FFP2 RD?
FFP stands for Filtering Face Piece.
Certified to FFP2 standards = European Certified Face Masks. This mask has also been certified to meet the requirements of KN95 standard (Chinese Certified Face Masks) in accordance with GB2626-2019.
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 of all particles larger than 0.3microns in size from passing through it when worn correctly with a proper fit.
The added ‘R’ (FFP2 R) on the Versarien mask stands for reusable. This means that when worn and handled with care and cleaned through the recommended care instructions, this mask is certified to be reusable with no loss of filtration.
The added ‘D’ (FFP2 RD) on the Versarien mask stands for ‘Dolomite Clogging’ tested. This is the test method used to determine the usage life of particulate filters such as our FFP2-rated mask. If attained, this is an indicator that additional quality standards have been met, as the breathing resistance is rated highly allowing the mask to be comfortably worn over a long period of time.
The different names and abbreviations of N95, KN95 or FFP2 face masks all similarly provide ≥94% filtration or more, the only difference is the region of accreditation.
Also CE marked in accordance with the requirements of European Directive EU 2016-425 for additional peace of mind.
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 FFP2 RD benefits. This can only be done based on your inspection of the mask condition, which even after some deterioration still makes an excellent face cover. A maximum of 10 cleaning cycles can be performed on the mask. After which, the mask should be replaced or disposed of.
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.
We advise against washing the mask, please DO NOT machine wash. Please see the product information sheet.
