The epidemic broke out suddenly and everyone was wearing masks. There are many types of masks. Let’s take a look at the differences.
FFP2 and FFP3 masks:
European manufacturers of FFP2 standard masks include German UVEX, etc.
FFP3 is a higher level (99) protective mask
Ordinary people and medical staff who are not exposed to high-pressure liquid splashes can use ordinary KN95 masks.
The common standard is YY0469-2010 or YY0469-2011
It is printed on the separate outer packaging of each mask
1860/1870+ models are used for medical operations, preventing moisture and dust, etc.
8210/8511 model is used for construction engineering, dust prevention, etc.
9210+ model is used in industrial engineering, sand, dust and rot, etc.
The two foreign purchases (including the famous 3M brand) are both N95, but they are purely dust-proof masks for construction, which only prevent suspended particles/fine dust/pollen, etc. It is not anti-virus at all, so you must see it clearly.
N95 is the level of medical masks. When purchasing, please remember the model 1860/1870+, or the words antivirus, surgical, flu-fighter, otherwise it is useless.
