You may have heard of the Kn95 mask and its many benefits. Perhaps you have seen advertisements for them on television. However, does it really work? And, if so, how? The answers to these questions are probably going to surprise you. In this article, we'll go over the basics of the Kn95 mask and how it works.
Basically, Kn95 mask are like the N95 masks available for everyone to use. They are regulation by the Chinese authorities under regulation GB 2626 2021. Both N95 and Kn95 masks have five layers: a thin clear plastic layer, an outermost layer of polyethylene or other non-woven fabric, a middle layer of micro-cotton fibers, an innermost layer of a very fine salt crystal known as ultra-fine salt, and lastly, there are droplets of the melt-bonded fabric and a layer of clear polyethylene film. The first layer of fabric, the polyethylene, acts as a barrier between the micro-cotton fibers and the ultra-fine salt crystals. This is called the vapor barrier, and it prevents gases such as smoke from entering the lungs.
The second layer of fabric, the micro-cotton, acts as a radiation barrier, keeping the heat away from the user's body.
The advantages of using Kn95 respirators-
The major advantage of these masks is their filtering face piece respirators. The design of the Kn95 mask has an inner lining that is comprised of fine nylon mesh, similar to a shower curtain. However, the nylon lining also has tiny holes, through which air can be passed, preventing dust and other particles from entering the wearer's nose. This way, the user is assured of clean breathing even when the mucus lining of the nose becomes stained or clogged. Most of these filtering facepiece respirators have a built-in air purifying system that uses ozone gas.
These masks offer many benefits such as being able to filter out dust, fumes, smoke and other air borne pollutants. They have become extremely popular in the workplace because they are able to filter air that has a number of chemicals, vapors and gases in it such as paint, gasoline, solvents, lubricants, pesticides, fungi, molds, bacteria and others. Even if you work in an environment that does not have many of these things in it you can still benefit from wearing one of these masks. They have been known to reduce the amount of dust that is in the air by as much as 90 percent and are very effective at preventing exposure to small particles of dust and fumes.
Another reason to invest in one of these masks is that they offer excellent protection against viruses and germs. These masks work well at reducing the amount of dust and viruses that get on your face and around your nose and mouth. The particles that get on your face can contain a lot of bacteria and germs and with the air that you breathe in coming through your mouth and nose you are exposing yourself to a number of risks. For example, there is a real danger of getting severe skin infections and scarring caused by viruses and bacteria. By filtering the air you are trying to reduce your risks of getting such diseases
