The differences between KN95 and N95 are mainly reflected in the following aspects:
1. Different standards: KN95 is the Chinese standard GB2626-2006, and N95 is the American NIOSH-42CFR Part84.
2. Different application scenarios: KN95 is suitable for high-density public places and high-risk transmission environments, while N95 is mostly used for medical staff.
In addition to distinguishing the use of masks, it is also necessary to learn how to wear them correctly and change them frequently to achieve effective protection.
Masks can resist the attack of germs, which is an extremely effective method of personal protection. About masks, we see kn95 and N95 most often, but many people don’t know them very well. Today, let’s talk about their differences and have a look together!
3. Different standards
Kn95 is a self-priming filter anti-particle respirator, which is produced in accordance with the Chinese standard GB2626-2006.
N95 is a classification of niosh-42 CFR Part84, which is a filter particle filter.
4. Different scenarios are recommended
Although there is no difference in filtering efficiency between these two masks, their actual application scenarios are different. For example, KN95 is suitable for high-density public places, exposure to potential pollutants and environments with high risk of pollution transmission. N95 is mostly used by medical staff when they contact patients or infected people, because it has the function of blocking blood and body fluid spillage, which can better protect the safety of medical staff.
After fully understanding the differences, we need to use correct wearing methods in daily wearing masks to achieve effective protection. In addition, it is best not to wear masks for more than eight hours, and you should change them when the time is up. Wearing masks for a long time without changing them will increase the risk of infection.
