In Europe, respirators must comply with the European standard EN 149:2001, which includes 3 types of disposable particulate respirators. FFP1 refers to the smallest filter among the three masks. For 0.3μm particles, its aerosol filtration rate is at least 80%. It is mainly used as an environmental dust mask. The lowest filtration percentage of FFP2 masks is 94%, and Ffp3 masks are the most filtered masks in FFP. Their minimum filtration percentage is 99%, which can prevent very fine particles such as asbestos.
