KN95 and N95 Mask: What is the difference?

This highly effective Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) KN95 mask has helped China to help fight the virus. The KN95 mask and the N95 mask have similar functions. Many countries around the world require people to wear face masks in public.

Respirators in the U.S. are approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety (NIOSH) or the FDA. NIOSH certification is often required for use in the workplace, while FDA certification is generally intended for public use.


KN95 filters non-oily particles such as microorganisms, fog and dust. These KN95 masks are generally available with 90%, 95% and 99.97% efficiency. Versions with and without valves are available. Please contact the appropriate agency in your country to find out which type best suits your situation.
