These KN95 masks are made from 100 percent fabric. They may act as an ideal preventive measure as the masks are designed to offer up to 95% bacteria filtration efficiency (BFE) and particle filtration efficiency (PFE). These Anti-Particulate Respirator masks are most suitable as they feature a self-priming filter and offer two-way protection, which means that they help filter both inflow and outflow of air. These masks can easily be folded making them easy to store when not in use. They are also ECM Certified. KN95 respirator masks fit snugly unlike normal masks which are loose-fitting. They are available in packs of 2, 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40.
Disposal – Contaminated mask should be disposed of as hazardous waste in accordance with local regulations.

KN95 Mask vs N95 Mask
N95 and KN95 masks both filter up to 95% of particles and create an air tight seal around the face. Under the current US regulatory framework mentioned above, as of April 8th 2020, the FDA has authorized the emergency use of KN95 masks and FFP2 masks where there is a shortage of NIOSH approved N95 masks (Source:FDA https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/personal-protective-equipment-infection-control/faqs-shortages-surgical-masks-and-gowns and FDA https://www.fda.gov/media/136449/download).
On May 7th of 2020, the FDA updated the April guidance and issued further guidance limiting the use of certain KN95 masks as suitable NIOSH alternatives in a healthcare setting (Source: FDA https://www.fda.gov/media/136664/download).
Other differences between N95 masks vs KN95 masks are that KN95 masks often use the earloop method of wearing the respirator whereas the N95 masks use a two head-strap attachments, one that goes around the back of the head under the ears and another that goes on the top over the crown of the head above the ears. It really comes down to personal preference in terms of which one is more comfortable for the wearer as well as the level of safety and protection one feels is necessary given the particular activity being carried out.
