FFP masks refer to masks that meet the European (CEEN149:2001) standard. The European standards for protective masks are divided into three levels: FFP1, FFP2, and FFP3. The difference from the American standard is that its detection flow rate is 95L/min and DOP oil is used to generate dust. Do you want to know about them?

Difference between ffp2 and ffp3 mask

The N series of masks are American standards, KN series are Chinese standards, FFP series are European standards, and KF series are Korean standards. The European standard for protective masks is divided into three levels: FFP1, FFP2, and FFP3. The following number refers to the protection capacity, the greater the protection level, the higher.

When water molecules exist as gas, the diameter is about 0.4nm, and the overall particle diameter of the coronavirus is about 60-400nm. The mask cannot pass through larger particles, so it can block the virus. 95 refers to the efficiency of filtering such particulate matter up to 95%. The 90 series do not have the protection level of the 95, but it can resist more than 90% of the particles. In the FFP series, 2 basically corresponds to 95, and 3 has a higher filtration efficiency, reaching 99%.

From the perspective of protection and filtering capability above, FFP3>FFP2.

Precautions for using masks

Wash your hands before wearing a mask, or avoid touching the inner side of the mask while wearing a mask to reduce the possibility of contamination of the mask.

Distinguish the inside and outside, up and down of the mask.

Do not squeeze the mask with your hands. N95 masks can only isolate the virus on the surface of the mask. If you squeeze the mask with your hands, the virus will soak through the mask with droplets, which will easily cause virus infection.

Try to make the mask fit the face well. The simple test method is: After putting on the mask, exhale forcefully so that air cannot leak from the edge of the mask.

The protective mask must be close to the face of the user. The user must shave the beard to ensure that the mask can be tightly attached to the face. The beard and anything that is between the mask gasket and the face will cause the mask to leak.

After adjusting the position of the mask according to your face shape, use the index fingers of both hands to press the nose clip along the upper edge of the mask to make it close to the face.

But here I want to appeal to everyone, try to leave these medical protection level masks to the frontline medical staff, they are the people who need these masks most.

Don't just pursue high-level masks. Ordinary medical masks are enough for most healthy people who are not in the epidemic area.

Viruses are still raging. Anti-particulate respirators or dust masks are indispensable to meet daily protection needs. Both medical surgical masks and Ffp2 masks can isolate viruses in daily life. But any mask is not a panacea. There is no need to go out and gather, wash hands frequently and ventilate the best protection for yourself and your family.
