How to use this product
Before using, check that the packaging is intact and confirm the marked expiration date on the outer package, only use this product before the expiration date. Open the face covering fully, and position it with the metal nose strip up. Use both hands to press the metal nose strip to fit the bridge of the nose and achieve a better protective effect. Store face coverings in a dry, ventilated, non-corrosive gas environment and away from fire sources and flammable materials. Make sure to clean your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitiser before and after applying or adjusting your face covering.
What other preventative measures can you take to prevent spreading germs and infection?
Face coverings should not be considered a fool-proof way to prevent the spread of germs or infection. However, you may want to wear a face-covering when taking preventative measures against the spread of illness. Overall, we recommend the following good hygiene practices if you're concerned about spreading infection:
- 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
Can I use these face coverings if I have a beard?
If you have a beard or other facial hair you will usually need to shave before using these respirator face coverings. This will help to ensure that the face covering fits properly and that the filtration system is working as effectively as possible.
Are these face mask 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.
Does this product protect others from my own breath. I want a product that protects me but also protects others from my own exhalation.
When securely fitted, the mask helps to provide an effective barrier.
Does the mask Protect from Covid-19?
HSE UK have confirmed KN95 masks would not meet requirements to protect against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
These face masks may also be known as filtering face-piece respirators. 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.
Do these face coverings have elastic ear loops?
Yes, these face coverings have elastic ear loops.
Do these face coverings have CE certification?
In short, N95 masks are the US standards for respirator masks; KN95 masks are the Chinese standards for masks. These are the requirements that the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health requires manufacturers to meet in order to label their masks as N95s.
Despite the long list of differences, the two masks are equivalent or nearly equivalent on the features that most people care about.
