Why are the white KN95 face coverings cheaper than these black ones?

The black mask is 7 ply, whereas the white ones as 5 ply, which is why the white ones are cheaper.

Are these masks disposable or washable?

The standard guidelines say to throw masks out and use new ones. But the standard guidelines are meaningless for people facing a global pandemic and widespread mask shortages.

Using alcohol disinfection is better because it doesn’t require rubbing the mask, such as https://www.chemist-4-u.com/newton-antibacterial-rubbing-alcohol-25ml

In times of panic, we often want to take action, yet one of the simplest ways to disinfect masks is to do nothing! Simply allowing masks to dry will kill viruses.

Is this a disposable mask where you only get 1 use and then throw it away?

KN95 is a performance rating under the Chinese standard GB2626:2006, the requirements of which are broadly the same as the European standard BSEN149:2001+A1:2009 for FFP2 facemasks. However, there is no independent certification or assurance of their quality and products manufactured to KN95 rating are declared as compliant by the manufacturer. KN95 must not be used as PPE at work unless their supply has been agreed by HSE. They are fine for civilian use. They can be wiped clean and reused, as these are 7 layers thick.

I am interested in this product but first wanted to know if this mask can be washed / reused .. even if only for a limited number of times? If not, ate there any material-type reusable masks which provide the same or similar levels of protection (ideally in black or a similar dark colour)? Regards

Is this a reusable mask or disposable? And does it have a replaceable filter?

These are disposable face coverings, you throw them away after one use so they don't need a replacement filter.

Does this product come with replacement filters?

This product has a filter built-in, you should use each mask only once so there's no need to replace the filter.

Previous Q&A are contradictory - are these masks reusable or disposable after one use?
