What is the FFP2 Breathable Face Mask?

FFP2 Breathable Face masks are a flat-folded style respirator mask that meets the EN 149 FFP2 standard. The inner and outer layers of the mask are manufactured from high-quality polypropylene materials that are soft on the skin. Its flexible edges easily adapt to the face of the user, for a comfortable and protective fit, whilst the filter material of the mask provides high protection and low breathing resistance during use.

 

What is the FFP2 Face Mask used for?

FFP2 Face Masks are recommended when the respiratory system needs to be protected. This can be required in several circumstances including:

  • On construction sites to protect against dust and other particles
  • In agriculture to protect from dust, vapours, fumes and mould spores
  • In healthcare to protect from germs and infection
  • Personal use to prevent the spread of infection from yourself and for protection from other people’s germs

FFP2 masks are World Health Organisation certified for medical workers who are near people suffering from respiratory diseases especially when performing Aerosol-Generating Procedures.

 

What is an Aerosol Generating Procedure?

An Aerosol Generating Procedure is a medical procedure such as intubation, airway suction and nebulizer treatment that can produce aerosols and droplets, as they can stimulate coughing. These kinds of procedures can spread pathogens (microorganisms that cause disease), therefore front-line medical workers, such as nurses and doctors can be at risk of catching infectious diseases from droplets generated by patients during these procedures.

 

How does this face mask work?

The FFP2 Breathable Mask is manufactured from high quality, white polypropylene materials, which are soft on the skin. The loop head-straps are fully adjustable for a secure fit, whilst the flexible edges and adjustable, concealed aluminium nose clip adapts to the shape and curves of your face to prevent gaps. This mask provides high comfort and breathability whilst also having a minimum 94% filtration percentage and maximum 8% leakage to the inside.

 

How to use this product

The FFP2 mask is simple to use and provides effective protection.

  1. Always check that the mask is in good condition before use- ensure there is no dirt or damage to any part of the mask
  2. Hold the mask in your hand with the nosepiece at your fingertips, allowing the headbands to hang freely below your hand
  3. Press the mask firmly against your face with the nosepiece on the bridge of your nose
  4. Stretch and position the top band high on the back of the head. Stretch the bottom band over the head and position below your ears
  5. Using both hands, mould the metal nosepiece to the shape of your nose
  6. To test fit:
  • Cup both hands over the respirator, being careful not to disturb the position
  • Inhale vigorously – if air leaks around the edges, reposition the straps or adjust strap tension for a better fit
  1. Remember, careful observance of these fitting instructions is an important step to ensure the safe use of the mask

 

What other preventative measures can you take to prevent spreading germs and infection?

Using a mask is just one preventative measure you can take to protect yourself from respiratory pathogens, dust and harmful airborne substances. However, it is recommended to not rely on masks alone to provide an adequate level of protection. Here are a few more steps you can use, along with the use of safety masks to protect yourself from harmful substances in the environment:

  • Perform hand hygiene frequently, using soap and water (where possible) or an alcohol-based hand rub
  • Try not to touch your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover nose and mouth with a bent elbow or paper tissue when coughing or sneezing and dispose of the tissue immediately after use
  • Keep surfaces clean and disinfected

Cleaning of reusable equipment before sterilisation is recommended but there are no data available on the effective and non-damaging cleaning methods for single-use equipment such as masks.

In general, N95 respirators are designed for single-use prior to disposal. Research has been undertaken into four readily available and often used decontamination methods: UV, 70% ethanol, 70C heat and vaporized hydrogen peroxide for inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 on N95 respirators, but these trials have not been peer-reviewed or shown repeatable results.

In summary, they are basically all the same. They stop 95% of particles >0.3 microns in size. The N95 is the USA Code, KN95 is China code, KF94 is Korea code and FFP2 is the EU code, this includes the UK. KN95, KF95 and FFP2 face masks are N95 face mask alternatives & N95 equivalents. They are all the same.

We can only supply the products listed, you may wish to purchase the single KN95 masks as a more affordable option.
