1. Which mask should I wear? (NIOSH N95/CAN95/KN95)

Due to the high transmissibility of the existing variant, effective masks play a part in this, and it is worth investing in NIOSH N95/CA-N95/KN95 masks to replace your usual cloth or surgical mask. However, if you cannot get your hands on a NIOSH N95/CA-N95/KN95 mask then a cloth or surgical mask is better than no mask at all in preventing the spread of COVID.

2. What is NIOSH N95?

NIOSH N95 filtering facepiece respirator, commonly abbreviated N95 respirator, is a particulate-filtering facepiece respirator that meets the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) N95 classification of air filtration, meaning that it filters at least 95% of airborne particles.

3. What is CA-N95?

Made in Canada 4-layer highly breathable construction includes a double layer of non-woven meltblown polypropylene for filtration. These masks are not NIOSH N95. These masks achieve >95% particulate filtration efficiency in the test samples using the NIOSH standard procedure TEB-APR-STP-0059. Earloops do not meet the headband requirement of NIOSH N95.

4. What is KN95?

A KN95 face mask is a type of filtering face piece respirator similar to the N95 respirator. It is standard of China and adheres to the GB2626-2006 standard. Like the N95, the KN95 face mask is rated to provide 95% or greater filtration of particles larger than 0.3 um (microns) in diameter such as bacteria, viruses, pollution particles, fine particles, smog, dust, pollen, etc. Made of multiple filtration layers of polypropylene and meltBlown, they come in both ear loop and headband models.

5. Which mask is higher level?

1. NIOSH N95 / 2.CAN95/KN95 / 3.Blue Face Mask / 4.Cotton Mask

6. Are these masks (NIOSH N95/KN95/CA-N95) washable?

Do not wash!!! Washing may disrupt nonwoven fabrics and electrostatic layers, reducing filtration efficiency.

7. Can NIOSH N95/KN95/CA-N95 be reuseable?

Dispose after 6-12 hours of accumulated use (e.g. one 6-12 hour school day, or six/twelve 1-hour trips to the store)

8. Should I wear a double mask on top of NIOSH N95?

Not Recommended, NIOSH N95 already provides the highest level of protection, and wearing one more mask can cause breathing difficulty.

9. How long can I wear a NIOSH N95 or KN95/CA-N95?

Dispose after 6-12 hours of accumulated use (e.g. one 6-12 hour school day, or six/twelve 1-hour trips to the store)

10. Which mask should I wear on a plane?

Both NIOSH N95, CA-N95 and KN95 could handle the job, but NIOSH N95 will always be the better option.

11. Why do I feel uncomfortable when wearing a N95?

This may be as a result of the fact that you are not used to wearing a respirator. Firsttime users of N95s may breathe more quickly than usual due to anxiety and/or are notused to wearing a N95. If at any point, breathing becomes difficult, you feel faint ordizzy, exit the area immediately and remove the N95 using proper infection controlprotocols.

12. Do you have ear-loop style NIOSH N95?

No, according to the NIOSH standard, all NIOSH N95 must be head-strap style.

13. Why NIOSH N95 masks are all head strap style?

That is one of the basic requirements when manufacturing NIOSH N95, to provide the wearer with better sealing.

14. Does Surgical NIOSH N95 have better protection than Non-Surgical NIOSH N95?

Surgical NIOSH N95 has the same filtration performance as Non-Surgical NIOSH N95 but only has better fluid resistance. (Resistant to penetration by synthetic blood)

15. What is the difference between Surgical NIOSH N95 & Non-Surgical NIOSH N95?

Surgical NIOSH N95 has the same filtration performance as Non-Surgical NIOSH N95 but only has better fluid resistance. (Resistant to penetration by synthetic blood)

16. What is the difference between NIOSH N95 & KN95/CA-N95?

Both provide the same filtration performance, but NIOSH N95 provides better sealing and breathability.

17. Why my glasses are fog up when wearing a mask?

The air we breathe out is warm and moist, and a small amount can fog up glasses. Ifyou find your glasses tend to fog up, try adjusting them prior to entering an isolationarea. You may also find it helpful to put antifog solution on the lenses to prevent themfrom fogging up.

18. Do you have masks made in Canada?

Yes, our NIOSH 3M 1870+, NIOSH 3M 9205+, CA-N95, Level-2 and level-3 face masks are both made in Canada.

19. Do you have Surgical/Medical KN95?

No, all the surgical/medical masks need to be approved by FDA, we have surgical/medical NIOSH N95, and surgical/medical face mask, but no surgical KN95.

20. Does N95/KN95/CA-N95 made from paper?

NO, all the disposable masks are made from highly breathable non-woven fabric, melt-blown fabric and polypropylene fabric for filtration.

21. Do you have Kids mask?

Yes, we have Made in Canada Kids CA-N95, Kids fancy KN95, Made in Canada Kid surgical face mask.

22. Do you have Kids NIOSH N95?

No, because NIOSH is an industry-standard, so there are no kids NIOSH N95 in the market, instead of that, we have Made in Canada Kids CA-N95, and Kids fancy KN95.

23. Why I feel tight on my face when wear a NIOSH N95?

That is a good sign, NIOSH N95 is designed to be tight to provide a better sealing on your face.
