What Is The N95 Mask
N95 mask is NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) standards and can filter 95% of non-oily particles with a diameter of 0.3 micrometers or more in the air. As long as the particle filter respirator meets the N95 standard and approved by the NIOSH, it can be called the N95 mask.
It also called N95 respirator, it’s the very efficient mask of personal protective equipment(PPE). People use it to protect themselves to avoid airborne particles into lung and liquid dirtying the face.
N95 is one of NIOSH’s ratings for particulate filter respirator protection standards. “N” means Not resistant to oil, and “95” means the filtration efficiency is 95% or above. In addition to 95, there are classifications of N99 (the filtration efficiency is not less than 99%) and N100 (the filtration efficiency is not less than 99.97%)
“R” means Somewhat resistant to oil, and “P” means Strongly resistant to oil / Oil-proof. Both R95 and P95 masks can filter 95% of non-oily particles and oily particles with a diameter of 0.3 micrometers or more in the air. The service life of R95 masks is up to 8 hours in an oily particulate environment, while the service life of P95 masks can be up to 40 hours. Or 30 days. R series and P series masks also have R99 / R100 and P99 / P100 classification.
