Directions For Use

These FFP2/KN95 respirator face masks are the perfect choice for those concerned with seeking to prevent themselves from contracting the coronavirus disease, Covid-19. Easy to fit, just pull the ear loops over your ears for maximal protection from airborne viruses.

Why

These FFP2 masks are the EU equivalent of American N95 masks and as you might guess, they are tested to screen out 95% of viruses even smaller than the SARS-CoV-2 virus causing the Covid-19 pandemic. As such, one might expect even greater efficiency against a larger virus such as SARS-CoV-2. Just as important, this respirator is extremely efficient at stopping the user from infecting others and is superior to the surgical and medical masks we also stock.

When

These respirator masks can be worn within any environment from medical settings ranging from nursing homes, hospitals, GP surgeries, dental surgeries, public and private care settings, key working environments such as grocery and retail stores, warehouses, food supplies, public transport and the general public to protect themselves when out and about doing the daily tasks, such as food shopping or for your hour of exercise.

Who

Typically, this type of mask are for those in medical fields such as frontline hospitals or general practice, nursing homes and pharmacies to key workers in retail, food, public transport, distribution and of course general public including risk groups such as the elderly, overweight and obese, nursing home patients or anyone seeking extra protection.

Predator Nutrition FFP2 (N95 Equivalent) Mask Review

The FFP2 masks are the European equivalent of the N95 respirator masks used in the US and this kind meet the guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

These face masks are used as “filtering facepiece respirators” (FFP) and are subject to various regulatory standards around the world to protect against bioaerosols (e.g. viruses). The FFP2 / N95 face masks meet the WHO (World Health Organisation) guidance for the latest coronavirus pandemic. They are recommended for use by the WHO during outbreaks of SARS, Avian flu and the Coronavirus causing the disease Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2)..

Across the world, certain populations should use an “N95, FFP2” or an equivalent respirator, particularly during a pandemic or emergency situation.

• N95 (United States NIOSH-42CFR84)
• FFP2 (Europe EN 149-2001)
• KN95 (China GB2626-2006)

FFP2/N95 masks have a minimum of 95% filtration percentage and are the type of face mask used in hospital settings in China where there is a high risk of exposure to pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2. These respirator masks are a half-mask respirator that covers the nose and mouth when fitted properly. They have 2 elastic headbands that keep the mask in place by wrapping around the ears.

How can using a mask protect me?

Firstly lets assess how big SARS-CoV-2 particles are. Using electron micrographs of stained particles, the diameter of the virus varied from 60-140nm. Researchers from Edinburgh tested commonly used masks to determine how well they could filter air. A particle counter measured how many particles made it through the mask. These commonly used masks prevented 95% of dust and diesel emissions from getting through to the individual (1). In a study assessing viruses, N95 respirator masks were tested against the MS2 virus. This virus had particle size of between 10-80nm. The N95 masks protected the individuals by capturing over 95% of the virus. When we compare the sizes of the MS2 and the Coronavirus the coronavirus is up to 10% bigger than the MS2 (2) meaning these respirators are likely more effective against coronavirus. In countries such as Japan and China, masks are commonly worn in order to protect the individual from environmental pollutants. By wearing a mask it can reduce the spread of particulates that could potentially contain the coronavirus or influenza viruses.

The outbreak of COVID-19 started in China, and now measures are slowly being lifted there 4 months after lockdown started but the Chinese government recommend people to wear masks if they are outside of their own home or potentially near other people (whilst still abiding by social distancing rules). This could mean when out food shopping, or caring for more vulnerable people. An intervention trial assessed the mask use and hand hygiene. These findings suggested that face mask use and frequent hand washing could reduce respiratory illness and the impact of a flu strain (A(H1N1)) in people who lived in close proximity (3).

Looking at cases of coronavirus across the world, it is clear to see that there is a correlation between countries with the lowest cases and those who already mandated mask wearing by the population. These include several countries based close to China, the country of outbreak, such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Vietnam.

Shocking new research has demonstrated how far airborne particles can travel – much farther than the 3 feet or so that might pass an infectious dose of a virus during conversation. While more evidence is needed to confirm how specific infectious diseases might be passed on through air particles, it suggests that at very least a mask would be advisable in public places as a precautionary measure.

Masks might be more effective to prevent YOU passing the virus on to others than catching it yourself – as more and more testing is carried out it is clearly that many who have been infected will not display telltale symptoms or come down with illness (fever, cough…).

This is supported by a 2009 study which suggested mask use might reduce transmission during a severe influenza pandemic, although adherence was low (4) which may be due to personal discomfort and sense of embarrassment.(5) As we adapt to long term changes in how society functions, it is likely that this perception will change from the time of studies as face masks become the norm.

There is certainly no harm in sporting a face mask. As discussed, even if you are not at risk, you are protecting others.

New research on re-usability

A new study has assessed a method of being able to re-use the N95 masks for. This method involves killing bacteria and virus on the mask by soaking the mask in hot water for 30 minutes, then drying with a hair drier for 10 minutes after this. Other methods involve the use of UVC radiation (ultra-violet light) for 15 minutes exposure time which is effective at sterilizing the masks. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7153525/

How do you use FFP2/N95 masks?
As simple and easy as these are to use, it is still worth being sure that you are fitting your mask correctly for maximal protection. This can be done using a respirator fit test. This is achieved by tightly pressing the mask flush against the face (without gaps) to ensure an efficient seal on the mask perimeter. Leakage could hugely impact the protection that even the best made mask offers. Bad news for some, a beard can interfere with fit!

Please follow the instructions below to fit your mask correctly:


1. To fit, simply hold the mask and place it over your nose and mouth
2. Bring both elasticated headbands over your head and adjust the position until it is comfortable.
3. The bottom headband should sit at the nape of your neck
4. The top headband should sit just above the crest of your head (widest part)
